On TV this weekend


Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, 8 p.m., ABC Ty and the gang build a house in a quiet neighborhood for an Iraq War vet who can't handle loud noises. It's a bit imperative to get him out of his old house, then, because it's next to a rock quarry and a train yard.

Chuck, 8 p.m., NBC Carrie-Anne Moss from The Matrix stars as the head of a security company squaring off with Chuck and his pals. Watch out, man, she can kick some ass.

CSI: NY, 9 p.m., CBS A high school house party invite goes viral on social media, with hundreds of people showing up and a girl dying. Hey, we remember when that really happened on Facebook. The party part, not the dying part.

Boss, 10 p.m., Starz Kane's supporters are already starting to turn on him. Apparently his 9-9-9 plan didn't work out. Wait, that's Cain.


True Life: I'm Occupying Wall Street, 6 p.m., MTV The network follows a 23-year-old at the protest, so all the apathetic kids at home can watch this instead of protesting themselves.

The Pastor's Wife, 8 p.m., Lifetime Rose McGowan plays an abused pastor's wife who kills her husband with a shotgun. Now she can add "Lifetime movie based on true events" to her resume.

Pablo Francisco: They Put It Out There, 11 p.m., Comedy Central The funnyman makes light of porn, midgets and hybrid vehicles. Even that sounds like the setup to a joke.

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Charlie Day hosts and Maroon 5 provides what is loosely referred to as music. At least we have a 50 percent chance at a good show.


Black Girls Rock!, 8 p.m., BET Another night honoring strong black women lives up to its billing with Mary J. Blige, Taraji Henson, La La Anthony and Angela Davis. We're not too sure if NeNe Leakes was invited, though.

Masterpiece Contemporary: Page Eight, 9 p.m., PBS Yeah, it's on PBS, but it's a British espionage thriller starring Bill Nighy, Rachel Weisz, Michael Gambon and Judy Davis. It's got to be better than 99 percent of the other garbage on Sunday night.

Hell on Wheels, 10 p.m., AMC A Confederate soldier swears a blood oath he'll get revenge on the bluecoats who killed his wife. Talk about trying to win the battle but losing the war.

SERIES PREMIERE The Heart, She Holler, 12:30 a.m., Adult Swim We can't even describe what this show is about, but two things stand out: Patton Oswalt and Kristen Schaal star, and it's only 15 minutes long, so why not?
