On TV this weekend


SERIES PREMIERE Styled to Rock, 8 p.m., Bravo A dozen would-be designers not good enough for Project Runway try to impress Pharrell Williams, supermodel Erin Wasson and stylist Mel Ottenberg in an attempt to join Rihanna's style team. That job will be soooo easy, because she takes her clothes off for Instagram photos so often.

The iHeartradio Album Release Party With Katy Perry, 9 p.m., CW Katy celebrates the release of her new album Prism by answering questions from Mario Lopez. Well, how did you celebrate your album release?

Strike Back: Origins, 10 p.m., Cinemax The series you just finished watching was actually the show's second season, so now you can go back and watch the first with a different cast as the leads, which surely won't confuse you at all. Walking Dead fans will enjoy Andrew Lincoln as Chief Collinson.

SERIES PREMIERE Dracula, 10 p.m., NBC Since Sleepy Hollow proved to be such a modest hit for Fox, the Peacock has decided that having Jonathan Rhys Meyers play the vampire in 19th-century London is a great idea. He's also playing an American businessman, for some inexplicable reason.


The Monster Project, 8 p.m., NatGeo Wild Judah Friedlander hosts a one-off about mythical animals, like mermaids and unicorns. Maybe chupacabras. Definitely bigfoot. Bigfoots? Bigfeet? Eh, whatever. They don't exist, in any case.

Hub Network's First Annual Halloween Bash, 8 p.m., Hub Kenan Thompson hosts a costume contest judged by Martha Stewart. Then it'll be G.I. Joe and Transformers reruns. Sweet, sweet '80s cartoon reruns!

Zombie Night, 9 p.m., SyFy A zombie movie with a budget lower than the average SyFy viewer's IQ. Granted, that's probably pretty high, but relatively speaking, it's chump change. But: It stars Mrs. Partridge, the mermaid from Splash and Cameron from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. See you at 9.


SERIES PREMIERE The Governor's Wife, 10 p.m., A&E The former governor of Louisiana, Edwin Edwards, is 86 years old. His wife Trina is 34. They met while he was in prison. It's reality show gold!

Oprah's Next Chapter: Gay In Hollywood, 9 p.m., OWN Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Wanda Sykes, and Dan Bucatinsky discuss being gay in Tinseltown. Because that's a new thing.

The Walking Dead, 9 p.m., AMC Okay, we can all guess who it is feeding the zombies rats through the fence. The only question is, where is he hiding? Well, we all seem to forget there's a B Block in this prison, so maybe we should start there.
