What’s new on the teevee this weekend:

Lost Girl (Syfy, tonight) Season Finale: The epic second season (22 episodes, sheesh) comes too close for Canada’s favorite super-powered bisexual anti-evil succubus, and wouldn’t ya know it? There’s a coinciding epic battle for the Soul of the Universe! ---Will our heroine finally fall to the dark side? More importantly, will that long-teased make-out sesh between Bo and sidekick Kenzi finally happen? The Canucks found out way back in April—now it’s ‘Merica’s turn.

Touch (Fox, tonight) Leftover Episode: Remember that weepy Heroes-lite Fox series starring the de-Bauered Kiefer Sutherland as the father of a kid who has Special Powers to Heal the World or some shit? The network forgot to air an episode earlier this year, apparently. Season 2 arrives soon to suck the sci-fi life out of Fringe on Fridays nights; this is the warning shot.

Also new tonight:
Shark Tank (ABC); America’s Next Top Model (The CW); America’s Most Wanted (Lifetime); The Ultimate Fighter (FX); Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse (TBS); Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, I Found the Gown (TLC); Fashion Police (E!); Real Time With Bill Maher (HBO); Strike Back (Cinemax); Boss (Starz)

The New Normal (NBC/CW30, Saturday) Utah Premiere: the not-all-that-funny sitcom you can’t see on KSL, for those too technologically challenged to try it out on, Hulu, Xfinity On-Demand or about 35 other platforms. I’d say “enjoy,” but you won’t.

Saturday Night Live (NBC/CW30, Saturday) Season Premiere: Seth MacFarlane hosts, Frank Ocean sings and your favorite SNL cast member is probably gone. But hey, it’s Peter Griffin!

Also new Saturday:
Doctor Who (BBC America); Celebrity Ghost Stories, The UneXplained (Bio); Tanked (Animal Planet); Deadly Affairs (ID)

Boardwalk Empire (HBO, Sunday) Season Premiere: Read all about it in True TV (Item 2).

Weeds (Showtime, Sunday) One-Hour Series Finale: Read all about it in True TV (Item 3).

Flip Men (Spike, Sunday) It’s shot in Salt Lake City, but I never paid much attention to Flip Men, about two guys (a bald one and a skinny one, as per reality-job-show law) who buy houses at auctions, sight-unseen, and have to deal with whatever they find. But then I caught last Sunday’s episodes, which featured a Taylorsville home full of neo-Nazi graffiti and a bleeding hoboand then a full-blown Hoarders house in Magna! OK, I’m sold now.

Also new Sunday:
Big Brother (CBS); Hell on Wheels (AMC); The Great Food Truck Race (Food Network); Ice Road Truckers (History); The Real Housewives of New Jersey (Bravo); Long Island Medium, Breaking Amish (TLC); Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Married to Jonas (E!); Rehab With Dr. Drew (VH1); Bridezillas (We); Bar Rescue (Spike); Black Dynamite, Robot Chicken (Adult Swim); Copper (BBC America); Leverage (TNT)
