On TV this weekend


The Neighbors, 8:30 p.m., ABC Larry tries to combine Hanukkah with Halloween to come up with eight nights of trick-or-treating. On the very last night the trick will be a Type II diabetes diagnosis.

SERIES FINALE What Not to Wear, 9 p.m., TLC Stacy and Clinton finally decide a decade is long enough and plan their escape, helping a Las Vegas train wreck and checking in on past makeovers to see how little of their advice was taken. Whose wardrobes will millions of wives make fun of now?

SEASON FINALE Strike Back, 10 p.m., Cinemax The team has to take potentially immoral, illegal and unethical action to stop the impending attack. That delay in congressionally funded counter-terrorism assistance sure isn't helping.


Grave Halloween, 9 p.m., SyFy A college student wants to save the spirit of her dead mother. That usually doesn't happen to women until after they get out of college and realize their moms were right about a lot of things.

SERIES PREMIERE Dancing on the Edge, 10 p.m., Starz Remember that episode of Downton Abbey where Lady Rose McClare was caught living it up with a married man in a jazz club? Well, imagine a whole show like that, with John Goodman trying very hard to make everyone forget King Ralph.

SEASON PREMIERE The Graham Norton Show, 11 p.m., BBC America Graham starts his 14th season with Benedict Cumberbatch, star of The Fifth Estate, Star Trek: Into Darkness and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Okay, but what big movies has he been in?


Guy's Grocery Games, 8 p.m., Food Guy Fieri hosts a reality show in which normal people have to complete cooking challenges. Ironically, Guy Fieri looks exactly like the kind of guy we would avoid in a grocery store.

Queer Eye Reunion: 10 Years Later, 9 p.m., Bravo It's a cast reunion for the 10th anniversary of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Or as we like to call it, The Year Bravo Started Showing Nothing But Reality Programming. — Joshua Gillin
