What’s new on the thinker sucker this weekend:

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (NBC, tonight) Last night, a kid from Salt Lake City choked on the Karate Pinata challenge; tonight, America’s new sitcom sweetheart Krysten Ritter (Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23) ---and SLC no-shows Garbage are Jimmy’s guests. It may be the closest you get to seeing either in-person; just sayin.’

Season Finales tonight: Who Do You Think You Are?, Grimm (NBC); Nikita, Supernatural (The CW)—see True TV.

Also new tonight:
Shark Tank (ABC); Fairly Legal, Common Law (USA); The Ultimate Fighter Live (FX); The Half Hour (Comedy Central); The Ricky Gervais Show, Real Time With Bill Maher (HBO); Magic City (Starz)

American Warships (Syfy, Saturday) Movie: Says here, “The crew of the USS Iowa (captained by Mario Van Peebles) wages war against a mysterious fleet of ships to stop them from destroying the Earth.” Syfy’s lawyers would also like you to know that they changed the name from American Battleship and that the same-weekend premiere as Battleship is purely coincidental.

Season Finale Saturday: Saturday Night Live (NBC/CW30)—see True TV.

Also new Saturday:
The Firm (NBC); Tanked (Animal Planet); The Graham Norton Show, The Thick of It, Katy Brand’s Big-Ass Show (BBC America)

The 2012 Billboard Music Awards (ABC, Sunday) Billboard celebrates shitty music in Las Vegas, with shitty performances by Carrie Underwood, Justin Bieber, LMFAO and The Wanted, culminating in three shitty hours you’ll never get back.

Mad Men (AMC, Sunday) We started the season in Summer 1966, now it’s Christmas already! Time flies when you’re contemplating social relevance, mortality and Weight Watchers, huh? Come to Brewvies Cinema Pub (677 S. 200 West; 21+) and contemplate a beer with Mad Men for free on the big screen at 10 p.m., presented by City Weekly, True TV, Epic Brewing and Brewvies.

Season Finales Sunday: Harry’s Law, The Apprentice (NBC); The Cleveland Show, The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy (Fox); Sherlock (PBS)—see True TV.

Also new Sunday:
Jesse Stone: Benefit of the Doubt (CBS); River Monsters (Animal Planet); Mythbusters (Discovery); Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Mrs. Eastwood & Company (E!); Sister Wives (TLC); The Real Housewives of Atlanta (Bravo); Wilson-Phillips: Still Holding On (TV Guide); The Killing, The Pitch (AMC); Army Wives, The Client List (Lifetime); Loiter Squad, Metalocalypse (Adult Swim); Game of Thrones, Veep, Girls (HBO); Nurse Jackie, The Big C, The Borgias (Showtime)
