On TV this weekend


SEASON PREMIERE Supernanny, 8 p.m., ABC Jo has to deal with a blended family where a teenager is abusive to the mom and the 4-year-old gets separation anxiety when dad leaves for the day. We're sure it'll all be solved in an hour, though.

Dog Whisperer, 8 p.m., NatGeo Cesar needs to help Boston Legal's Rhona Mitra control her bulldog's violent moods. First step: Helping Oscar the dog forget that his mistress used to be a character model for Tomb Raider's Lara Croft (no, really).

What Not to Wear: Dressing Your Age, 10 p.m., TLC Clinton and Stacy try to convince cougars to stop wearing miniskirts and teenyboppers from wearing mom jeans. Say, how old are those two, anyway?


SERIES PREMIERE Downsized, 9 p.m., WEtv How can we spur the economy and create jobs in this prolonged economic downturn? Exploit families who have to resort to Dumpster diving and making their own cleaning supplies, that's how.

SEASON PREMIERE The Locator, 10 p.m., WEtv Troy Dunn is back to his old tricks of getting family members back together. And here we are, spending all our time trying to stay away from them.


The Simpsons, 8 p.m., Fox Daniel Radcliffe is the stuntcasting this year, as he makes fun of Robert Pattinson in a Twilight send-up. Boy, this really has gotten old. The show, we mean.

MINISERIES PREMIERE Great Migrations, 8 p.m., NatGeo Seven hours of animals working themselves into a frenzy and then abandoning large swaths of land. Is this a nature show or political analysis?

Black Girls Rock!, 8 p.m., BET Jill Scott, Fantasia and Keyshia Cole perform at a special celebrating black women. We would've held out for Alicia Keys and Michelle Obama.

SEASON FINALE Eastbound & Down, 10:30 p.m., HBO Don Johnson has proven he deserves to be on TV again. He'll just have to fight with Danny McBride for screen time.

SERIES PREMIERE Married to Rock, 10:30 p.m., E! Perry Farrell and Duff McKagan will suffer for agreeing to this reality show about their wives. How much hairspray and Jell-O for wrestling will be used is anyone's guess.
