On TV this weekend


Outbreak, 8 p.m., AMC A deadly infectious disease is spread by an animal to humans and wreaks havoc on a small town. Doesn't sound as far-fetched as it did back in 1995, huh?

Wife Swap, 8 p.m., ABC One family makes their 11-year-old sit in a booster seat. You know him — he's the one who is always getting beat up at school.

SEASON FINALE Head Case, 10 p.m., Starz Imagine having Jerry Seinfeld as a client when you're a celebrity head-shrinker. Who's the one making the observational humor during therapy?

Party Down, 10:30 p.m., Starz Again, no idea what it's about, but it's one of the few first-run shows on after this week, so enjoy.


Primeval, 9 p.m., BBC America A monster that can camouflage itself is hiding out in a haunted house. So it's not scared of ghosts, either.

Louis C.K.: Chewed Up, 10 p.m., Comedy Central He may have directed Pootie Tang, but surprise, he's white! (Actually, that's half his jokes right there.)


Million Dollar Password, 8 p.m., CBS It's back, just in time to save you from turning off the TV and interacting with your family.

National Memorial Day Concert, 8 p.m., PBS Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna host a tribute to the U.S. military on the Capitol's west lawn. Hope there's enough chips and dip to go around ...

MINISERIES PREMIERE Diamonds, 9 p.m., ABC Just when you were starting to feel better about yourself again, this miniseries shows up to beat you over the head with why you're evil for buying the wife an engagement ring.
