On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

2012 NCLR ALMA Awards, 8 p.m., NBC Eva Longoria and George Lopez are still hosting this image awards show for Hispanics in entertainment. How credible is the show? Christina Aguilera is getting a lifetime achievement award.

Boss, 9 p.m., Starz There are riots in the housing projects and Kane ignores it to get more treatment. It's always great when a show has realistic writing.

SEASON PREMIERE Haven, 10 p.m., Syfy Nathan and Duke quit fighting to search for Audrey. That's straying a little too far from the formula, Syfy.

SERIES PREMIERE Secret Princes, 10 p.m., TLC A dating show about four royal bachelors who come to America to find a woman who doesn't know how rich and sorta famous they are. Like Coming to America meets Bachelor Pad, sounds like.

SATURDAY

SERIES PREMIERE Happily Never After, 9 p.m., Investigation Discovery A show about weddings that end in disaster and/or tragedy. But that's every wedding. >BA-DUM TISH<

My Fair Wedding With David Tutera: Unveiled, 9 p.m., WEtv In case you wanted to know how that all turned out. We're too busy watching Happily Never After to care.

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC Looper's Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosts tonight, with Mumford & Sons as musical guest. Joe should be pretty used to putting on the prosthetic makeup for tonight's skits.

SUNDAY

The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, 8 p.m., ABC The real show tonight is placing bets whether any network show will be able to top the offerings of basic cable and PBS. Competition that includes Mad Men, American Horror Story, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Homeland and Downton Abbey is automatically unfair.

SEASON FINALE Broadway or Bust, 8 p.m., PBS Or skip it all and see if the cultured version of American Idol can produce its own crowned performer who won't be able to secure real entertainment work.

SEASON PREMIERE Treme, 10 p.m., HBO LaDonna can't stand living with the in-laws. Neither could your husband; that's why he left in the first place.

SEASON FINALE Real Housewives of New Jersey, 10 p.m., Bravo Imagine that, friends and family are still arguing. This show is really stretching some boundaries.
