On TV this weekend


Ghost Whisperer, 8 p.m., CBS Can't Melinda even take a cruise without some deadhead bugging her? Guess not.

Platinum Babies, 9 p.m., WE A rich couple have been trying for years to have a baby, so they think they get to blow twice as much money when they have twins. Hey, you coulda got a whole posse of foster kids for that $40,000, ya mooks.

Hoover Dam Reinvented, 10 p.m., NatGeo Because we're about as close to the Great Depression as we're likely gonna get (cross your fingers that this is the worst it's going to be), engineers look at how they'd construct the Hoover Dam if they tried to do it today. First tip: Don't try to build a megalopolis in the middle of the high desert.


Beyond Sherwood Forest, 9 p.m., SyFy The gang at this network decided movies about giant sharks and lizard people weren't paying the bills anymore, so they're making our favorite wealth-redistribution heroes (socialists!) a bit supernatural. And wait, there's a lizard in here after all.


The 25th Anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert, 8 p.m., HBO We've got the Boss, the Piano Man, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, U2, Mick Jagger, the Black Eyed Peas and enough other acts to keep us going for four hours — and forget that the first class of this hall of fame was actually inducted back in 1986, so this should be the 23rd anniversary. But whatevs.

The Dog Who Saved Christmas, 8 p.m., ABC Family A cute little doggie voiced by Mario Lopez, together with Dean Cain in the same movie in order to make your girlfriend/wife happy.

A Dog Named Christmas, 9 p.m., CBS Meanwhile, a mentally challenged man convinces a town to take a whole bunch of pound pooches home for the holidays in order to make your girlfriend/wife sad. Yep, it's officially Christmastime.
