What to watch on Friday, March 16...

Supernatural
This sounds very serious and scary: Cursed ballet slippers! After they claim the life of a ballerina who danced herself TO DEATH, the slippers wind up in the hands of Dean who finds himself suddenly cursed. I don't mean to speak for the rest of you, but if we're denied a Dean Winchester leotard dance number we should take to the streets.

SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 9pm, USA
Fairly Legal
Remember that one show on USA with the charming brunette and the snappy editing and the blue skies? The one with lawyers. In tonight's Season 2 premiere (rumored to be the result of some major behind-the-scenes rejiggering, Kate mediates a case between a corporation and a former employee who claims he was exposed to dangerous chemicals. Guy, pretty much every break room has Diet Mountain Dew, get over it.

10pm, Starz
Spartacus: Vengeance
In "Balance," our titular badass must decide whether or not to commit a brutal act of revenge after the capture of a Roman V.I.P. Meanwhile everyone's all abuzz in Glaber's inner circle about, you know, intrigue and sex and stuff like that. You know how it is.

SEASON 5 PREMIERE, 10pm, USA
In Plain Sight
In the premiere of what's advertised as In Plain Sight's final season, Mary returns from maternity leave only to find that the vibe at her office kind of sucks now?

What to watch on Saturday, March 17...

ORIGINAL MOVIE, 9pm, Syfy
Leprechaun's Revenge
What's more frightening? A Blarney-powered ghoul or Billy Zane's career! Har har. Hollywood humor. Billy Zane gotta eat, y'all. In this excellent-looking film, an evil leprechaun goes on a violent rampage against the small town citizens who stole his gold. DVR it twice, just to be sure.

ORIGINAL MOVIE, 8pm, Hallmark Channel
Chasing Leprechauns
Or if you prefer your St. Patrick's Day original telefilms to be more romantic (WHY), check out this Hallmark Channel offering in which a presumably handsome businessman travels to Ireland where he must negotiate a land deal with a presumably beautiful local leprechaun expert, but decides what he really wants to win is her heart! Maybe there are literal leprechauns in the mix also, but who knows? Do you really want to take that risk?

ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 8pm, HGTV
HGTV Dream Home Giveaway 2012
After months and months of dutifully entering this here sweepstakes giveaway of a Park City, Utah dream home and half a million dollars, the winners will finally be announced tonight. So hurry up and pick out a nice outfit in case a camera crew shows up at your apartment!

ORIGINAL MOVIE, 8pm, Lifetime
Home Invasion
Wait, are you telling me this is the FIRST ever Lifetime movie entitled Home Invasion? Maybe it's a remake? Or like a fifth remake? Either way, this is a new movie and the plot should be obvious: A woman kills a home invader and the home invader's vengeful girlfriend decides to also invade the woman's home as a sort of revenge home invasion. Got it?

What to watch on Sunday, March 18...

SEASON 2 FINALE, 9pm, AMC
The Walking Dead
Frankly, I enjoyed every single episode of this season and I don't understand where all the complaints came from. Like, y'all watched Season 1 right? It's been this way the whole time! But this isn't about me and my untarnished love for this show, this is about The Walking Dead season finale! Tonight Rick and Carl must stay safe from an invading horde of zombies while the rest of the gang openly questions Rick's leadership. Please let Carl get eaten, please let Carl get eaten...

8:30pm, Fox
Bob's Burgers
In "Bob Day Afternoon," Bob finds himself in a stressful situation when a botched neighborhood bank robbery puts him directly in the middle of a hostage crisis. Except, you know, funny!

SERIES PREMIERE, 8pm, Discovery
Frozen Planet
This is another one of those Discovery series so important that the network simulcasts it on all its various sister channels. Frozen Planet is about the life and lackthereof at the coldest reaches of our planet. Subjects include polar bears looking to mate, penguins looking to surf, and orcas looking to terrify everything in the ocean.

8pm, ABC
Once Upon a Time
Tonight Mary Margaret must ask Mr. Gold for legal assistance when she finds herself under arrest for Kathryn's murder. Meanwhile in Bonkersville, Snow White's all, "I'm 'bout to murder this queen" and Prince Charming's like, "Relax, girl."

10pm, HBO
Eastbound & Down
In a bid to win over his teammates and establish himself as the boss of partyin', Kenny decides to throw the mother of all Fourth of July parties. Meanwhile Stevie has a tough time telling Maria what he did. Guilt-wise, but also just speaking-wise, probably.

9pm, NBC
Celebrity Apprentice
Tonight the remaining celebrities must write and produce a viral video promoting a mop (!) and one team works a little too blue with their concept. Also, bickering.

SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 12:30am, Cartoon Network
Check It Out! With Dr. Steve Brule
This show is so funny I can't even believe it's on television. Didn't the Geneva Convention put restrictions on how funny things on TV are allowed to be? I don't know, I'm not a lawyer. I'm just happy John C. Reilly and Tim & Eric's incredible creation is back for another round. In "Boats," the esteemed Dr. Brule will (1) sample seafood and (2) protect his wallet. Everybody watch this! Six seasons and a movie! (Did I do that right?)

It looks like I finally have enough time to catch up on The Walking Dead. You know, since watchable TV shows apparently also have week-ends every once in a while.

EDITOR: The Good Wife is not listed for Sunday on this article, but your main TGW page says Sunday will indeed be a new episode. CBS 9pm.





Fairly Legal I am going to watch this, but every promo so far for season 2 has felt like too much changing to the concept. Luckily, the only other thing on Fridays for me is Star Wars: The Clone Wars.



Fri: Fairly Legal, Star Wars The Clone Wars, Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.



Sat: nothing. Oh god that looks so bad.



Sun: Fox shows, The Good Wife, CSI: Miami, Frankenhole.

Friday- My beloved In Plain Sight. Why must they axe the best shows?! Mary with a baby should be comical. Marshall pretending that Mary's baby is his should be comical.



That Liftime summary made me laugh out loud and make a mental note to set up the DVR. It is funny that they haven't had that title before. They had to have. I'm googling that.



Sunday: Once Upon a Time...the last person you go to when you need help is Mr.Gold.

Desperate Housewives...because I like to see things to the bitter end even after they off a fave character of mine.



Breakout Kings: Because sometimes a girl needs a show full of wit to counterbalance her own wit.

OMG! I totally thought last week's episode of TWD was the season finale! This kind of feels like Christmas morning, except this time, my childhood dreams aren't crushed by not getting a Sega Genesis.

Nikita tonight. Nothing on Saturday. The Walking Dead, House of Lies, and Californication on Sunday.

I notice that Supernatural and Nikita are both on at 8 pm on The CW? They must have a lot of faith in their viewers concentration levels?



Anywho...

Friday: Supernatural, Nikita, In Plain Sight, Fairly Legal. (Looking a lot better than last Friday, but not as good as when Fringe returns.)

Sunday: The Walking Dead & The Talking Dead, Bob's Burgers, Once Upon A Time, Eastbound, Family Guy, Shameless, American Dad, Breakout Kings, House of Lies, Californication, Frankenhole.

Dean gets cursed? Haven't we already seen this episode?



And - yes! Finally someone who - like me - isn't whining about TWD, but loves every minute. But...openly questioning Rick's leadership? Those ungrateful SOBs! After all he's done for them? Can't wait!
