On TV this weekend


America's Next Top Model, 8 p.m., CW Which one of the girls will win the competition and forever ruin her chances of working as a model beyond the one-year contract she gets? Not the one you want to win, that's who.

SERIES PREMIERE Raised Wild, 9 p.m., Animal Planet An entire series about feral children raised by wild animals. The casting pool for this one is pretty limited.

We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston, 10 p.m., CBS Jennifer Hudson, Celine Dion, Usher, Yolanda Adams and CeCe Winans are in a special taped last month. Just record it and fast-forward to the clip of her singing the Star-Spangled Banner at Tampa's Super Bowl XXV.

SEASON FINALE Real Time With Bill Maher, 10 p.m., HBO Bill just may have something to talk about this week. We wonder what.


Holiday High School Reunion, 8 p.m., Lifetime Marilu Henner and Harry Hamlin star in a TV movie that very squarely aims at a target audience aware of whom Marilu Henner and Harry Hamlin are.

Matchmaker Santa, 8 p.m., Hallmark Meanwhile, Hallmark tries to get the rest of that audience by featuring Lacey Chabert, John Ratzenberger and Florence Henderson. Anyone younger than 35 or so will be baffled.

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC Jeremy Renner and Maroon 5 are on this show tonight, though, so Gen Xers will have something to watch, too, if they could stay awake long enough to watch it.


The 40th Anniversary American Music Awards, 8 p.m., ABC All those people with nothing to watch on Saturday have this tonight. That's right, it's Bieber, Minaj, Rihanna and Skrillex all night long.

The Dust Bowl, 8 p.m., PBS (check local listings) Ken Burns wants you to learn about how bad things can get in an environmental disaster by examining this 1930s phenomenon. Rotating crops and irrigating regularly ain't saving anyone next time.

The Walking Dead, 9 p.m., AMC ERMAHGERD who knew zombies could use telephones???
