On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

Styled to Rock, 8 p.m., Bravo The designers have to create a sexy club look for Miley Cyrus, as approved by her mother, Tish. First, maybe her mom shouldn't be the one picking out her sexy clothes, and second, Miley already has set the bar pretty low by being naked all the time.

SEASON FINALE America's Next Top Model, 9 p.m., CW The first co-ed season comes to a close, with only one guy or one girl being chosen as the winner. If it's not a guy, the whole season was pretty much moot, wasn't it?

Tanked, 10 p.m., Animal Planet Tracy Morgan already had the crew build him a shark tank, so now he's hiring them again to build a tank for his octopus. We swear this isn't a plotline from an old episode of 30 Rock.

Dracula, 10 p.m., NBC Lucy is heartbroken, so she decides to distract herself with Mina's engagement party. Because that will keep you from thinking about dying alone.

SATURDAY

Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, 8 p.m., HBO Ever want to watch the former heavyweight champ's 2012 one-man Broadway show? Here's your chance. Remember to cover your ears, for many reasons.

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC Lady Gaga is the host and musical guest. Given what she reveals in today's Juice* (Page 66), we highly suggest tuning in.

SUNDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Almost Human, 8 p.m., Fox A cyborg cop is teamed up with an android partner in the year 2048. That sentence alone should send your geeky sense tingling strong enough to give the first episode a try.

The Walking Dead, 9 p.m., AMC Thank goodness the Governor is finally back. We were getting tired of watching anonymous characters we've never seen introduced to biting the dust to stretch out the tension.

SERIES FINALE Eastbound & Down, 10 p.m., HBO So long, Kenny Powers, we hardly knew ye. No, really, we never saw this show. Neither did many other people, it seems.
