On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

Undercover Boss, 8 p.m., CBS Last week was the season finale, sure, but we have lots more stuff to watch. Those camera crews don't hang out for weeks at a time for nothing.

SEASON FINALE Nikita, 8 p.m., CW Nikita must choose between saving Michael or herself. From a ratings standpoint, this is a no-brainer.

SEASON FINALE Shark Tank, 9 p.m., ABC An 11-year-old and his puppy have a product. It doesn't involve newspapers, either.

SEASON FINALE Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, 9 p.m., TLC Just say yes, already.

Merlin, 10 p.m., SyFy Mordred pleads with Arthur to spare the life of a would-be assassin Arthur has sentenced to death. Those two probably are going to agree to disagree.

The Moment, 11 p.m., USA Jennifer Lopez's choreographer helps another choreographer try to become the choreographer for a pop band made by Madonna's choreographer. That's a lot of choreography.

SATURDAY

2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, 9 p.m., HBO Jennifer Hudson sings a lot of songs from the late Donna Summer, who is being inducted by Kelly Rowland. That's a lot of popular music for one night.

SEASON FINALE Saturday Night Live, 10:30 p.m., NBC Ben Affleck oversees Bill Hader's final show. Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen will probably be mugging for the camera, too. Also, somebody sings.

SUNDAY

Billboard Music Awards, 8 p.m., ABC Forget all the popsters vying for a pointless statue. When does Prince hit the stage? Host Tracy Morgan will probably be late, and couldn't tell us, anyway.

SEASON FINALE The Simpsons, 8 p.m., Fox Seth MacFarlane is a guest star, playing a guy Marge flirts with over email. She hears she can get a better deal on Seth's next cartoon, so she's laying it on thick.

MINISERIES PREMIERE North America, 9 p.m., Discovery Tom Selleck is the narrator for a seven-part series about the continent. Good luck getting your average American to even find it on a map.

SEASON FINALE All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, 9 p.m., NBC So, if you win a round of Celebrity Apprentice, does that mean your prize is fame?
