On TV this weekend
SEASON PREMIERE Survivorman, 9 p.m., Discovery We're headed off to the Sierra Nevadas with no food, shelter or pale ale.
SERIES PREMIERE Whale Wars, 9 p.m., Animal Planet Some quack and his crew decide to face off against Japanese whalers in the Antarctic. Trapped on a tin can in subzero temps fighting for marine mammals? What's not to like?
Henry Rollins: Uncut, 10:30 p.m., IFC The musician/comedian visits New Orleans. Think he'll complain about anything?
Mail Order Bride, 9 p.m., Hallmark Mobster moll Daphne Zuniga assumes a friend's identity and moves to Wyoming to hook up with a rancher in the 1880s. And this was before MySpace, even.
SEASON PREMIERE My Bare Lady 2: Open for Business, 10 p.m., Fox Reality Four porn stars attempt to run a business that doesn't involve dirty motel rooms or intense self-loathing. That leaves out politics and Wall Street, then.
SERIES PREMIERE Ruby, 8 p.m., Style An overweight woman from Savannah decides she's going to become famous by losing weight. She's like the anti-Paula Deen.
Summer Heights High, 10:30 p.m., HBO An eight-part Australian mockumentary about a silly high school and its sillier inhabitants. At least they didn't simply remake it with American actors.
