On TV this weekend


Live With Regis and Kelly, 10 a.m., Fox Regis Philbin says so long after more than 20 years on morning talk shows. The lesson: Work hard, be true to yourself and you, too, can be forced into retirement when you become inconvenient to your employer.

Supernatural, 9 p.m., CW A New Jersey town thinks the area is being attacked by the real Jersey Devil. Or Snooki. Whichever.

Women Who Rock, 9 p.m., PBS Female musicians like Bessie Smith, Janis Joplin and Lady Gaga are profiled in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's new exhibit. Now you don't have to go to Cleveland to see it!

Boss, 10 p.m., Starz Kane and his people fight with the media over a news leak, trying to spin it for the public. Or as we news media like to say, the mayor tries to lie to the public when we air his dirty laundry.


Jodi Picoult's Salem Falls, 8 p.m., Lifetime James Van Der Beek plays an ex-con being hunted by Wiccans after he's accused of sexually assaulting one of them. But c'mon, it's James Van Der Beek, so he couldn't possibly have done that.

Donald Glover: Weirdo, 11 p.m., Comedy Central Troy from Community gets his own stand-up special. We hope the other students took a field trip.


American Masters — Woody Allen: A Documentary, 9 p.m., PBS A two-parter that exhaustively discusses his life and career, yet still manages to find a way to gloss over the whole Soon-Yi thing. That's the perk of being famous.

The American Music Awards, 8 p.m., ABC Fans vote for the winners this year, but you're tuning in to see folks like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson and more perform. Christina Aguilera and Chris Brown, not so much.

Family Guy, 9 p.m., Fox Remember the first season of the show when Joe the neighbor had a son? Apparently he went MIA during the Iraq War and is returning for Thanksgiving. Didn't see that one coming.
