On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

Expedition Wild, 6 p.m., NatGeo Casey Anderson heads into the backwoods of Yellowstone as winter begins to settle in. Don't worry, when that supervolcano blows, it won't ever be cold again.

Explorer, 9 p.m., NatGeo A doc about the Yakuza crime lords and the Tokyo cops tracking them down, which is funny, because everyone knows the Yakuza pay off the cops.

American Restoration, 9:30 p.m., History Rick works on a horse-drawn fuel wagon and a 1940s feminine hygiene product dispenser. That won't be embarrassing for him at all.

SATURDAY

Margaret Cho: Cho Dependent, 10 p.m., Showtime The unprintable comedian gets another unprintable special on premium cable. At least we can print when it's on.

SERIES PREMIERE Don't Tell the Bride, 10 p.m., OWN Grooms make the first big mistake of their marriages by secretly planning their weddings for the bride. Yeah, what kind of divorced idiot cooked up this show?

Craig Ferguson: Does This Need To Be Said?, 10 p.m., Comedy Central The not-so-unprintable comedian gets another fairly printable special on basic cable. At least you'll be able to see a repeat later because you were watching Margaret Cho.

SERIES PREMIERE Puppies vs. Babies, 10 p.m., Animal Planet We were thinking it would be something toootally different, but no, it's video clips of puppies and babies competing against each other for the title of cutest EVAR!!!1! We all know Baby Laughing Hysterically at Ripping Paper wins the crown for the season already.

SUNDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Visionaries: Inside the Creative Mind, 8 p.m., OWN Tyler Perry is the first subject of this series, which promises to give nothing but good vibes about really rich and creative people. Like they need any more encouragement at this point.

SEASON PREMIERE The Walking Dead, 9 p.m., AMC Everyone's favorite zombie show not really about zombies is back on the air! It is October, after all.

SEASON PREMIERE Our America With Lisa Ling, 9 p.m., OWN Any time a former host of The View talks about porn, it makes us very uncomfortable for some reason.

SERIES PREMIERE Why Am I Still Single?!, 9 p.m., VH1 Because you get your dating advice from a VH1 show hosted by someone named Siggy Flicker, that's why.
