TV Weekend: Camelot, Smallville, Survivor, Game of Thrones

Posted By on May 13, 2011, 5:00 PM

These just in: Parenthood and Chuck have been renewed; The Event and Law & Order: LA, not; Ashton Kutcher is replacing Charlie Sheen on Two & a Half Men; Breaking In might be un-canceled; no new Wonder Woman for you. Phew … ---

What’s new this weekend:
Camelot (Starz, tonight) Seven episodes in and I’m still not entirely sold on Camelot—it’s not as much stoopid fun as Spartacus, nor is it as mid-budget flashy/sexy as The Tudors or The Borgias. But, Merlin (Joseph Fiennes) and Morgan la Fay (Eva Green, above)? Both stoopid-flashy-sexy, so it almost evens out. Tonight, Morgan throws a dinner party for King Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower, more stoopid than sexy)—but then the castle is attacked! How gauche.

Smallville (The CW, tonight) Series Finale: Read all about it in True TV (Item 5).

CSY:NY, Blue Bloods (CBS, tonight) Season Finales: Read all about it in True TV (Item 4).

Also new tonight:
Shark Tank (ABC); Flashpoint (CBS); Kitchen Nightmares (Fox); VH1 Storytellers: Kings of Leon (VH1); The Whitest Kids U’Know (IFC); The Soup (E!)

Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday) Ed Helms (The Hangover, The Office) hosts; the fossilized remains of Paul Simon sings.

Also new Saturday:
Chase (NBC); Cops, America’s Most Wanted (Fox); Doctor Who (BBC America); Running Wilde (FX)

Game of Thrones (HBO, Sunday) Says here, “King Robert is enraged to hear of the fruit of the Targaryen alliance with the Dothraki and orders an assassination that does not please Ned; Catelyn takes her Lannister prisoner to the Eyrie to see her sister; Arya overhears a conversation that threatens her father's life.” Catch all that? What I got was, there’s gonna be a hairy-bear throwdown between Robert (Mark Addy) and Ned (Sean Bean)!

Survivor: Redemption Island (CBS, Sunday) Season Finale: Read all about it in True TV (Item 6).

Desperate Housewives (ABC, Sunday) Season Finale: Read all about it in True TV (Item 7).

The Cleveland Show (Fox, Sunday) Season Finale: Read all about it in True TV (Item 8).

Also new Sunday:
Celebrity Apprentice (NBC); American Dad, The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy (Fox); Shark Men (NatGeo); The Real Housewives of Orange County (Bravo); Breakout Kings (A&E); The Killing (AMC); Law & Order: Criminal Intent, In Plain Sight (USA); Army Wives (Lifetime); Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1, Superjail (Adult Swim); The Borgias (Showtime); Treme (HBO)

Preview: It’s a hairy-bear throwdown on Game of Thrones Sunday!
