On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

America's Next Top Model, 8 p.m., CW One of the girls who was eliminated is going to come back. Is it the shrill one? The emotional cripple? The pretty one that the judges didn't choose because she looks like a real person and not a cartoon character? Trick question: That's all the same girl.

SEASON PREMIERE Nikita, 9 p.m., CW Ryan and Nikita focus on bringing in agents who didn't respond to the recall. Maybe all their brakes failed, or the locks on their car doors started a fire.

SEASON FINALE Boss, 9 p.m., Starz Watching this show, we've got to wonder, if one of our local politicians was having this kind of degenerative disorder, would we even notice? We're betting not.

SERIES PREMIERE Hunted, 10 p.m., Cinemax Melissa George stars a Jason Bourne-ish spy going off the grid. Not that spies really live on the grid, mind you.

SATURDAY

The Girl, 9 p.m., HBO Toby Jones and Sienna Miller star as Alfred Hitchcock and Tippi Hedren in an HBO movie about the making of The Birds and Marnie. As if those two movies didn't already have two strikes against them.

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC Bruno Mars is the host and performer tonight. He must not have been feeling too lazy this week.

SUNDAY

Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs, 8 p.m., Comedy Central Finally, a telethon smart enough to be both entertaining (featuring host Jon Stewart, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Stephen Colber, Katy Perry and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog) and get off the air before The Walking Dead starts. That alone makes us want to give them money.

Bob's Burgers, 8:30 p.m., Fox Not content to simply make Parks and Recreation funny, real-life married couple Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman play hippie farmers on tonight's episode. We wonder if Nick's cartoon character will have the mustache.

The Walking Dead, 10 p.m., AMC Well, look at that, the show remembered it has zombies available for episodes besides the season finale. It's almost like they listened to the fans instead of listening to all the other characters jabber on endlessly. Some exposition is vital, sure, but let's keep severing limbs, shall we?
