On TV this weekend


42nd NAACP Image Awards, 8 p.m., Fox Pardon us, but any awards show that seriously considers giving awards to Jaden Smith for The Karate Kid and Denzel Washington for The Book of Eli has some fundamental problems.

SERIES PREMIERE Beast Hunter, 9 p.m., NatGeo Forget the Indonesian Man Ape and just get to El Chupacabra, would you? We're still trying to figure that one out.

The Defenders, 8 p.m., CBS Kathy Griffin is a crude comedian who is sued by an audience member who is offended. No, on the show.


Being Human, 9 p.m., BBC America Any show with zombies is worth watching on a Saturday night.

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC Miley Cyrus hosts and the Strokes perform. Thank goodness it's not the other way around.


SERIES PREMIERE America's Next Great Restaurant, 8 p.m., NBC Bobby Flay helps decide which people have the best idea for a chain restaurant. Because American highways and suburbs need more of those, you see.

SERIES PREMIERE Secret Millionaire, 8 p.m., ABC Surprise! It's not a show about you!

SEASON PREMIERE The Celebrity Apprentice, 9 p.m., NBC While LaToya Jackson makes a career out of appearing on reality shows and Richard Hatch skirts tax laws once again, our real focus will be on Gary Busey, who so obviously has a mental disorder we're amazed a court hasn't signed an order preventing him from being on TV.

SEASON PREMIERE The Real Housewives of Orange County, 10 p.m., Bravo Any of these shows are interchangeable, really, so it's a good thing they tell us when a new season starts.

SERIES PREMIERE Breakout Kings, 10 p.m., A&E We thought this was a show about the husbands of the The Real Housewives of Orange County, but it's about people who break out of prison. Same difference.

SERIES PREMIERE Taking on Tyson, 10 p.m., Animal Planet The former boxer's reality show focuses on his obsession with pigeon racing. Strange, we know, but at least they don't have ears to bite off.
