TV Weekend: Fringe, Pee-Wee, Breakout Kings, Big Love

Posted By on March 18, 2011, 2:27 PM

Notice there was no TV Weekend entry last week? No? Well, it’s back this week, ingrates.---

What’s new this weekend:
Fringe (Fox, tonight) Yes, most Fridays do get a Fringe plug—what do you want, a fucking Supernanny preview? Tonight, Peter and Olivia run across their latest scientific anomaly: A woman who can’t die, no matter how many times she attempts suicide. Insert Charlie Sheen/career quip here.

Give It Up For Greg Giraldo (Comedy Central, tonight) Jon Stewart, Jim Gaffigan, Conan O'Brien, Dave Attell, Lewis Black, Sarah Silverman, Colin Quinn and Nick Swardson pay tribute to late comic Greg Giraldo, who also appears via old clips because, well, he’s dead.

Also new tonight:
Supernanny (ABC); Who Do You Think You Are? (NBC); Kitchen Nightmares (Fox); The Onion News Network (IFC); Ghost Adventures, Merlin (Syfy); The Ricky Gervais Show, Real Time With Bill Maher (HBO); The Soup (E!)

The Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway (HBO, Saturday) Just as it says, the filmed presentation of Pee-Wee Herman’s Broadway stage show version of his old kiddie show. Sadly, Cowboy Carl (Laurence Fishburne) was too busy dragging down CSI’s ratings to participate—but still, big fun!

Breakout Kings (A&E, Sunday) For you Prison Break fans, there’s a T-Bag (Robert Knepper) cameo in tonight’s cons ‘n’ cops caper series. Guess what: He’s playing a badass con.

Big Love (HBO, Sunday) Series Finale: The last episode of TV's greatest polygamy show (fuck Sister Wives). Real all—and I do mean all—about it in True TV.

Also new Sunday:
Secret Millionaire
(ABC); The Amazing Race, Undercover Boss (CBS); America's Next Great Restaurant, The Apprentice (NBC); Bob’s Burgers, The Cleveland Show (Fox); The Real Housewives of Atlanta (Bravo); Kourtney & Kim Take New York, Holly’s World (E!); Army Wives (Lifetime); Californication, Shameless (Showtime)

Preview: T-Bag brings the (new) pain to Breakout Kings:
