On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

SEASON FINALE Undercover Boss, 8 p.m., CBS The CEO of a telecommunications company is surprisingly in the dark about what his employees say and do. Time to be proactive and shift the paradigm of the workflow.

SEASON FINALE The Finder, 8 p.m., Fox Geoff Stults' real-life older brother, George, arrives to play Walter Sherman's older brother. That's really a stretch for ol' George.

SEASON FINALE CSI: NY, 9 p.m., CBS We're pretty wary of giving things away these days, so let's just say a cast member gets shot. Which cast member? Well, it certainly isn't Gary Sinise, no sir.

SEASON FINALE Blue Bloods, 10 p.m., CBS Frank learns about a potential terrorist attack, so he invokes the power of the epic moustache to take care of business.

SERIES PREMIERE Common Law, 10 p.m., USA Two police partners end up in couples counseling, probably over bitterness that their captain won't just reassign them.

SERIES PREMIERE The Half Hour, 11 p.m., Comedy It's like all the other up-and-coming comedians' standups specials, but this one is filmed in Boston! Not that we've ever seen anyone smiling there.

SATURDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Mom Caves, 8 :30 p.m., HGTV It's like Man Caves, but with women. Isn't that just called a house?

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC SNL alum Will Ferrell leads a hushed and sobering discussion on the nature of man. By acting like a baby for 90 minutes.

SUNDAY

SEASON FINALE Survivor: One World, 8 p.m., CBS Oh, this was still going? We checked out when Brad Culpepper's wife got booted weeks ago.

SEASON PREMIERE Next Food Network Star, 9 p.m., Food This will be the eighth season. Quick! Name the previous seven winners! Case closed.

SERIES FINALE Desperate Housewives, 9 p.m., ABC We kept up with this one until this season, when Tom and Lynette split up because they finally realized they raised a family of coddled monsters. So no matter what happens at the end of this one, we hope they're reading the latest Time magazine cover story (see page 22).

Tracy Morgan: Black and Blue, 10 p.m., Comedy Central Here's an uncensored look at the show none of us got to see because Tracy keeps canceling his Tampa shows.
