On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

SEASON FINALE Everybody Hates Chris, 8 p.m., CW During the last week of school, Chris finds out he'll be held back in 10th grade if he gets one more tardy notice. So much for Skip Day.

SEASON FINALE Dollhouse, 9 p.m., Fox Terminator didn't make it, and since this is a Joss Whedon series, we're doubting Eliza Dushku and co. will be back. But you can always dream.

SEASON FINALE Mistresses, 9 p.m., BBC America After an entire season, we can officially say this is like a British Desperate Housewives. But good.

NUMB3RS, 10 p.m., CBS Can we once just write a capsule for a show guest starring Henry Winkler and not make a reference to the Fonz? No, apparently not.

SATURDAY

Lost on the Atlantic, 10 p.m., NatGeo A scientist crosses the Atlantic on a prehistoric sailboat. Why? To prove it can be done? That was proven like 10,000 years ago already.

SUNDAY

SEASON FINALE The Amazing Race 14, 8 p.m., CBS What's amazing is that after 14 seasons, this contest hasn't yet raced to cancellation.

SEASON FINALE The Celebrity Apprentice, 8 p.m., NBC We don't care who wins, because everyone knows Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson would win if he was on. That's just our opinion. Are you listening, Donald?

SERIES PREMIERE The Alzheimer's Project, 9 p.m., HBO Alzheimer's is such a depressing condition, we don't know if we want to watch this four-parter, especially because this one is about seven people who have it and get worse. But it's like eating your spinach: bitter and often overcooked, but good for you.

SEASON FINALE Desperate Housewives, 9 p.m., ABC We're really starting to think Bree is the one who should have died in that freak electrocution. And how is it Neal McDonough can be such a nice guy in movies and is such a freak here? That's range.

SEASON FINALE Brothers & Sisters, 10 p.m., ABC We have no idea what is happening on this show, other than Ally McBeal is on it and we usually watch a DVR'ed episode of Family Guy while it's on. But, hey, the third season is over.
