What to watch on Friday, April 29.

Well, we did it, you guys. Another endless gauntlet of weekdays recedes in our rearview mirrors and we've EARNED that mixed metaphor. Have a great weekend...your TV sure will:


8pm, NBC
Friday Night Lights
Tonight Vince must deal with yet another troubled family member and Coach Taylor attempts to straighten out his unruly team. Plus, Tami will have a glass of white wine at some point? Probably.

9pm, Fox
Fringe
Olivia teams up with Sam Weiss (guest-star Kevin Corrigan) to prevent a dual-universe apocalypse. Question: Does Olivia make a good salary, or is this mostly just volunteer work?

9pm, CW
Supernatural
When Sam and Dean visit a small town where all of the residents are actually DEMONS, they must face one of Eve's most dastardly tricks yet: A demon version of their own mother.

10pm, CBS
Blue Bloods
Tonight Frank is simply appalled when reporters sensationalize his newest case—the murder of a tourist outside a Lower East Side restaurant. Ugh, pesky reporters, always interested in interesting things.

What to watch on Saturday, April 30.

8pm, NBC
Chase
The team pursues a prison escapee who's eager to prove his own innocence. Just hear him out, okay?!

8pm, ABC
Batman Begins
This is just a good movie right here. Don't get me wrong, I'd rather watch Batman Returns all day (and I often do), but this one is good too, if only for the scenes where the Scarecrow causes Gotham City to see Batman as a flying demon.

SPECIAL, 10pm, Animal Planet
Too Cute! Kittens
Did you notice the title? This is sort of why TV was invented. Anyway, this program follows the birth and first few months of three litters of kittens. "We've done it." —Philo T. Farnsworth

What to watch on Sunday, May 1.

9pm, HBO
Game of Thrones
Tonight Ned arrives at King's Landing only to find that the King's accounts are in bad shape, plus Jon the Bastard gets off on a bad foot with the other recruits at Castle Black and Catelyn secretly follows her husband to King's Landing. Also there will be tons of doggystyle, I'm guessing? I don't care, this show is terrific!

8:30pm / 9pm / 9:30pm, Fox
Cleveland Show / Family Guy / American Dad!
In a highly MOMENTOUS crossover event, a hurricane sweeps through each of these three towns and its respective characters must deal with the damage in their typically questionable ways. (P.S. I thought these three programs were already completely crossed-over all the time? Shows what I know.)
Update: This weekend's new episodes of Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show have been pulled from Fox's schedule due to tornadoes that have killed over 200 people in the South.

MINI-MARATHON, 8pm, G4
Ninja Warrior
During our America's Got Cable showdown in which G4 absolutely trounced Spike, many of the commenters cited this show as being why they liked G4. Fair enough! It's very fun. Tonight and today enjoy a marathon of reruns, capped off with four new episodes in which funny, fearless folks hit the Ninja Warrior course.

10pm, AMC
The Killing
Rosie's funeral is finally held, and her father starts taking matters into his own hands. Plus, Sarah and Holder question a suspect's family, neighbors, and friends.

SEASON 4 PREMIERE, 10pm, USA
In Plain Sight
She's back! Mary McCormack returns as U.S. Marshall Mary Shannon, and she is just tryin' to protect folks. In tonight's Season 4 premiere, she'll seek help from a waitress in order to exonerate Brandi from grand theft auto accusations.
