On TV this weekend

FRIDAY

SEASON PREMIERE Undercover Boss, 8 p.m., CBS One of the co-founders of Twin Peaks, a Hooters-like sports bar chain, goes undercover to survey the, uh, landscape.

SEASON FINALE Perfect Score, 8 p.m., CW Two guys who like watersports go looking for eligible women. No, not the R. Kelly kind of watersports, you weirdo.

SERIES PREMIERE MasterChef Junior, 8 p.m., Fox Whoever thought it'd be great to subject 8- to 13-year-olds to the profane jabberings of Gordon Ramsay either got fired or was promoted to president of Fox.

SEASON PREMIERE Hawaii Five-0, 9 p.m., CBS Shooters take over HQ, but Capt. Lou Grover (last seen in the original series) shows up, so everything is cool.

SEASON PREMIERE Blue Bloods, 10 p.m., CBS An alleged cop killer has the charges dropped due to lack of evidence. Tom Selleck needs to have a vendetta against somebody.

SATURDAY

The Cheating Pact, 8 p.m., Lifetime A group cheating on a college entrance exam ends up getting tangled in a murder plot. Wow, getting into college really is more competitive these days.

SEASON PREMIERE Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC Fresh off winning a writing Emmy, Tina Fey stops by her old haunt to laugh at all the struggling actors and writers there. She may do Weekend Update, but we can't be sure.

SUNDAY

SERIES FINALE Breaking Bad, 9 p.m., AMC Now, here at the end, it's funny to think AMC almost canceled this show. However Walter White ends up, the network (and it's viewers) are the big losers — although we will be glad to be rid of our weekly Sunday night heart palpitations. We can only hope for an epic, Hamlet-style conclusion in this 75-minute episode. Sail on, Crystal Ship, sail on.

SEASON PREMIERE The Good Wife, 9 p.m., CBS For some reason, it's very, very difficult to take Jeffrey Tambor seriously when he's playing a judge. A parole officer, maybe.

SEASON PREMIERE Homeland, 9 p.m., Showtime You guys couldn't wait just one more week to start this? You must be off your meds like Carrie.

SERIES PREMIERE Masters of Sex, 10 p.m., Showtime Either set your DVRs or plan to start 15 minutes into this one about Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan as William Masters and Virginia Johnson conducting their sex research. That is, if you're not too busy ranting about Breaking Bad on social media.
