What to watch on Friday, March 18.

9pm, Fox
Fringe
In tonight's episode of the Fox show most worthy of your valuable time, our favorite team of brilliant misfits (plus Olivia) investigate an apparent suicide, only to have a run-in with a peculiar lady. But aren't they all? Haha nope, not like this.

SERIES FINALE, 8pm, ABC
Supernanny
Tonight we bid farewell to America's favorite Rubenesque British taskmaster as Jo helps a recent widower trying to raise three small, grieving children. In other words, do you like to cry? Tune in!

9:30pm, HBO
The Ricky Gervais Show
Here's a show that is NOT sad. If you like to laugh, tune in tonight to hear Karl Pilkington's theory about how aliens may have been involved in the invention of the microchip, as well as a gentlemanly discussion about a documentary about a pregnant man.

11:30 pm, Comedy Central
Give it Up for Greg Giraldo
Whoops, now we're back to sad. But ALSO funny? Here's a nice tribute to recently departed comedian Greg Giraldo, featuring clips of some of his best work as well as interviews and remembrances by still-alive comedians like Sarah Silverman and Jon Stewart. I hate "R.I.P." as an acronym, but rest in peace, fella!

What to watch on Saturday, March 19.

10pm, HBO
The Pee-wee Herman Show
Technically today is called "Saturday" but for the time being it's called PEE-WEE DAY!! Because, really, this is the only thing worth watching today. Just tune in to HBO sometime in the morning and then throw your remote in a mud puddle. You won't NEED to change channels. This is a concert film from Pee-wee's recent Broadway run. Sure, he doesn't look as sprightly as he did TWENTY YEARS AGO, but the charm is full-force and Pee-wee's definitely returned to his earlier, naughtier humor, just the way the Good Lord intended! Seriously, this is gonna be awesome.

8pm, Fox
Cops
Television's Original Reality Show has been on for one hundred million years, but that doesn't mean it's not still great. The viewing experience is extra special for me, because without this show, I wouldn't see my family nearly as often. Anyway, tonight's episode is all about home assault. Oh, grandpa.

8pm, HGTV
HGTV Dream Home Giveaway 2011
Tonight we'll finally find out WHO wins that sick alpine lodge in Vermont. Will it be an ordinary citizen like you or me, or will it be one of those crazy ladies who wins contests FOR A LIVING? We'll see!

What to watch on Sunday, March 20.

10pm, CBS
CSI: Miami
In tonight's episode, a delivery truck driver gets real murdered and so does a lady on his route, and it's up to the team to discover their connection to each other. On a personal note, as a redhead I feel a special kinship to this show's star, David Caruso. Sure, he's a mumbling, overacting, possibly crazy person, but he's ALL I'VE GOT sometimes.

9pm, NBC
Celebrity Apprentice
Tonight the remaining "celebrities" attempt to cope with a Lisa Rinna-less world by piling into RVs and creating a "recreation experience" in Manhattan. Paging Jason Voorhees, am I right???

9 p.m., Showtime
Californication
In tonight's episode of the show you should DEFINITELY watch with your children, Hank recovers from his trial by hooking up with a frisky real-estate agent, then buys a Porsche and considers leaving Los Angeles. Just kidding about watching it with your children. Children already voted this show the #1 Most Boring Show Ever For Children. Oh well, they are missing out!

10pm, A&E;
Breakout Kings
Crossover alert!! It's "T-Bag" from Prison Break! Tonight everyone's favorite one-handed sociopath returns to television, where he'll escape from prison and go on a RAMPAGE. Fortunately some super-sexy criminals are right on his tail.
