TO WATCH

SEASON FINALE The Hero, 8 p.m., TNT A winner is chosen tonight, hopefully by having to best the Rock in a wrestling match/punching contest/swordfight. Then it's on to saving helpless civilians the world over!

Our Nixon, 9 p.m., CNN A documentary that uses Richard Nixon's home movies to prove there was a human side to him, after all. When he wasn't plotting to destroy people's lives or bastardize the electoral process, that is.

Note to readers

GWAR Beer is now the name of the collaboration between Cigar City Brewing and the band GWAR. They changed the name because there was already a beer called Impaled Ale. The Weekend section, which is printed in advance, contains the old name. The article also has the wrong state for Three Floyds Brewing. It is in Indiana.

Also, the opening date of the movie I'm So Excited was changed to Aug. 9 after press time. A review runs in today's Weekend.
