What’s new this weekend:
The Whitest Kids U’Know (IFC, tonight) Series Finale: A couple of seasons too late, but whatever. Maybe they were saving the funny stuff for last … right?

Also new tonight:
Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution (ABC); Flashpoint (CBS); Friday Night Lights (NBC); Storytellers: Maxwell (VH1); Real Time With Bill Maher (HBO); The Soup, Fashion Police (E!)

Inbetweeners (BBC America, Saturday) Season Premiere: The British Freaks & Geeks is back! Not that BBC America has promoted it worth a shit—must have blown the budget on pimping their Battlestar Galactica reruns.

Outsiders, Come Fly With Me (BBC America, Saturday) Series Debuts: A 2040-set sci-fi soap opera starring Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty, The L Word), and an Office-style mock-doc set in an airport terminal. Now these I can understand not promoting …

America’s Most Wanted (Fox) Series Finale: The Saturday-night Fox staple finally bites the dust, so it’s open season for criminals!

Also new Saturday:
Chaos (CBS); Cops (Fox); Moby Dick 2010 (Syfy); Celebrity Close Calls, Celebrity Ghost Stories (Bio)

2011 Miss USA Pageant (NBC, Sunday) They still do this, huh? And they’ve added “special commentary” from Kelly Osbourne? Call me when they add pole-dancing and/or trampolines.

Falling Skies (TNT, Sunday) 2-Hour Series Debut: Read all about it in True TV (Item 1).

Game of Thrones (HBO, Sunday) Season Finale: Read all about it in True TV (Item 2).

The Killing (AMC, Sunday) Season Finale: Do we finally learn who did said Killing? Or did we slog through 45 episodes for nothing? (OK, it was only 10 episodes … but seriously …)

Also new Sunday:
The Protector (Lifetime); Law & Order: Criminal Intent, In Plain Sight (USA); 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: Who else is gonna die on Game of Thrones? Or, more like, who isn’t?
