On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Invasion, 7 p.m., Animal Planet Hunters go searching for invasive species, so of course the first episode is set in Florida. Suspects include the Burmese python, the Nile monitor lizard and those snails that ruin everything. They should add tarantulas to that mix.

Mystery Diners, 10 p.m., Food Owners of a diner in New Orleans can't seem to get their feet under them. Well, when the whole city keeps sinking into the ocean, that'll happen.

The Moment, 11 p.m., USA A woman who wants to be a costume designer gets to work on the musical Kinky Boots. Well, as long as she starts with something understated.

SATURDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Sanjay and Craig, 10:30 a.m., Nickelodeon It's kind of like Calvin and Hobbes, if Calvin were Indian-American and Hobbes were a giant snake. The first episode is about a butt implant, so parents be warned.

SEASON PREMIERE Trisha's Southern Kitchen, 10:30 a.m., Food Nothing new is on tonight, so watch that cartoon above or the return of Trisha Yearwood, who is still muscling in on the cooking show biz.

SUNDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Marvel's Avengers Assemble, 11 a.m., Disney XD Sate your — we mean, your kids' — insatiable appetite for all things superhero in between toy commercials masquerading as feature films.

SERIES FINALE Smash, 9 p.m., NBC No matter how hard these folks try, the show won't always go on. The series has been canceled, so let's see how many things the creators try to cram into this one episode to wrap things up.

Behind the Candelabra, 9 p.m., HBO Michael Douglas and Matt Damon prove Hollywood is doomed by making a cable biopic about Liberace and his secret lover. Tinseltown wouldn't touch this one, but two megawatt stars in a gay relationship with one dying of AIDS? They're going to cry all the way to the bank.

SERIES RETURN Arrested Development, Netflix There's no time listed, because you can watch all 15 episodes of this fourth season whenever you feel like it. Netflix has said this is a one-time deal, though, so don't waste them. Let's hope the Bluths have straightened out in the past seven years. Doubtful, but we can always wish.
