Thanks, people! Packed house for the Wilfred/Louie screening last night at Brewvies, so we’re probably gonna do it again next week—stay tuned. ---

What’s new this weekend
Commercial Kings; Young, Broke & Beautiful (IFC, tonight) Series Debuts: Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings (about a pair of guys who cross the country and make wacky local ads for businesses) and Young, Broke & Beautiful (about a travel blogger who hits the underground joints the mainstream travelogues won’t) are both brought to you by the Interwebs. Thanks, Interwebs! Both are as amusing as they are cheap-looking—and they’re damn cheap-looking.

Also new tonight:
Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution (ABC); Friday Night Lights (NBC); Say Yes to the Dress (TLC); Whale Wars (Animal Planet); The Soup, Fashion Police (E!); Real Time With Bill Maher (HBO)

Swamp Shark (Syfy, Saturday) Movie: It’s a mutant shark what swims in the swamp, and only Kristy Swanson and D.B. Sweeney can stop it! Lookin’ good, Kristy …

Also new Saturday:
Chaos (CBS); Inbetweeners, Outcasts, Come Fly With Me (BBC America)

True Blood (HBO, Sunday) Season Premiere: Read all about it in True TV (Item 3).

Leverage (TNT, Sunday) Season Premiere: The Leverage team battles baddies and blizzards on a mountaintop to clear an innocent man’s name. Fine, but who wants to see Gina Bellman and Beth Reisgraf in parkas? That ain’t Summer TV in my ‘Merica, damn it.

Also new Sunday:
The Marriage Ref (NBC); Falling Skies (TNT); The Protector (Lifetime); Law & Order: Criminal Intent, In Plain Sight (USA); The Glee Project (Oxygen); Ice Road Truckers (History); The Real Housewives of Orange County (Bravo); The Glades (A&E); Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1, Mongo Wrestling Alliance (Adult Swim); Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Ice Loves Coco (E!); The Real L Word (Showtime); Treme (HBO)

Preview: Just when you thought shit couldn’t get wackier on True Blood
