On TV this weekend


SEASON FINALE Friends With Benefits, 8:30 p.m., NBC It's the last episode of this show until ABC debuts its own series about two platonic friends having sex all the time, called No Strings Attached. Hey, they should make a movie about that.

Mel Brooks and Dick Cavett Together Again, 9 p.m., HBO Two entertainment legends get together and talk about all the good times they had with people that folks younger than 50 don't know.

9/11: The Days After, 9 p.m., History A commercial-free special about what happened a decade ago, as part of a cornucopia of depression brought to you by every network on television.

SEASON FINALE Torchwood: Miracle Day, 10 p.m., Starz Time to see if someone's going to die, after all.


SEASON PREMIERE Fix This Kitchen, 9:30 a.m., A&E People who want their kitchens redone enlist the help of Ikea, which makes crappy furniture that needs to be replaced in 10 years, anyway.

SERIES PREMIERE Dina's Party, 10 p.m., HGTV The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Dina Manzo already has a spinoff planning events. Because a Real Housewives franchise is a dangerous place to be these days.

The Love We Make, 9 p.m., Showtime A documentary about Paul McCartney's plane being grounded on Sept. 11. Oh, and the charity concert he helped organize afterward. That too.

Portraits from Ground Zero, 10 p.m., A&E What could be more fun than spending a Saturday night reliving one of the most nightmarish days in American history through a series of photographs?


9/11: 10 Years Later, 8 p.m., CBS The Emmy-winning movie 9/11 gets updated to show what happened in the past decade, with Robert De Niro narrating.

SERIES FINALE Entourage, 10:30 p.m., HBO This annoying series ends about two years later than it should. Time for Jeremy Piven to renew his hair plugs and dust off the resume.

SEASON FINALE Curb Your Enthusiasm, 10 p.m., HBO Michael J. Fox. That's enough for us.
