On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

SEASON PREMIERE What Would You Do?, 9 p.m., ABC Ready to feel bad about the state of humanity even more? Let's watch people not respond to another round of uncomfortable situations.

Tanked, 9 p.m., Animal Planet An RV owner wants an aquarium built inside his RV. Now his fish will get motion sickness two different ways.

SERIES PREMIERE Marriage Boot Camp: Bridezillas, 9 p.m., WEtv Five couples with troubled marriages share a house with four counselors who make them work on their relationships. Does this sound like a recipe for divorce court to anyone else?

SERIES PREMIERE Pregnant & Dating, 10 p.m., WEtv Five career women who want babies but haven't landed significant others try to finish that project on deadline. Because they're all already pregnant. That does throw a monkey wrench into things.

SERIES FINALE Merlin, 10 p.m., Syfy Merlin arrives to help Arthur defeat Morgana. If we remember our English lit well enough, this doesn't have the happiest of all potential endings.

SATURDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Wizards vs. Aliens, 7 p.m., The Hub Doctor Who producer Russell T. Davies knows how to provide what his Gen X fans and their families really want. Well, maybe add a few ninjas and robots, too. And pirates.

SEASON PREMIERE The Metal Show, 11 p.m., VH1 It's still no Headbanger's Ball, but times change, so we'll take another season of this. We have to wind down from Wizards vs. Aliens somehow.

SUNDAY

SEASON PREMIERE The Killing, 8 p.m., AMC Ironically, this show focuses more on dead people than the network's hit The Walking Dead. Makes a little less sense, though.

SERIES PREMIERE Princesses: Long Island, 9 p.m., Bravo We hate to keep beating this dead horse, but when did Bravo become the network of affected whiners complaining about not getting exactly what they want, when they want it? This time they take on Jewish-American princesses who live at home and want to get married, like Downton Abbey in Great Neck.

SERIES PREMIERE Top Hooker, 10 p.m., Animal Planet After reading the description of Princesses, we can see where your mind would take you with this title, but no, it's about fishermen.

SEASON PREMIERE The Venture Bros., Midnight, Cartoon It's been so long since this most awesome of awesome cartoons was on, we can't even remember the storyline. We're pretty sure it has an '80s reference in there, though. Sphinx!
