SATURDAY

"Kill Bill" (7 p.m., Spike TV): Settle in for an evening of both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, including some of the late David Carradine's finest work.

"20Q" (7 p.m., Game Show Network): This new series is based on the online and handheld game using artificial intelligence in a man vs. machine contest. The man? Well, it's hosted by Cat Deeley of "So You Think You Can Dance." The machine? The voice of Mr. Q is Hal Sparks ("Queer as Folk").

"The Money List" (8:30 p.m., Game Show Network): Another new series. Two teams bet how many items they can name on a list, from "European Capitals" to, perhaps, "Potent Potables."

"Man Vs. Cartoon" (9 p.m., TRUTV): For the premiere, three teams of students try to recreate an invention of Wile E. Coyote's in the cartoon "Wild About Hurry." It's unclear if there's an anvil involved.

SUNDAY

"The Taking of Pelham One, Two, Three" (7 p.m., WGN-Channel 9): Before you go see a surly John Travolta, check out the 1974 original, starring Walter Matthau, Robert Shaw, Martin Balsam and Hector Elizondo.

"Gene Simmons Family Jewels" (8 p.m., A&E): Nick learns the blues the hard way, when he goes on a business trip with Gene.

"The Next Food Network Star" (8 p.m., Food): The finalists are to concoct a "recipe for men" with ingredients found in the typical male's pantry. Even the turkey jerkey?

"True Blood" (8 p.m., HBO): The three-star second season amps up the carnage, the heat and the allegory. See the whole review in Sunday's Show section.
