SATURDAY

"Dirty Sexy Money" (9 p.m., WLS-Channel 7): Goodbye, decadent Darlings! It's the last episode for the soapy sizzler. Oddly, it follows "Finding Nemo."

"George Lopez: Tall, Dark and Chicano" (9 p.m., HBO): In his second HBO solo special, Lopez tells funny stories, live!

"Face the Ace" (8 p.m., WMAQ-Channel 5): A Chicago poker player tries for the $1 million.

"iCarly: iFight Shelby Marx" (7 p.m., Nickelodeon): During her webcast, Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) challenges a martial arts expert to a fight. She takes Carly up on it -- and then things get personal. If that's not enough tween violence for you, you can play iKickButt at Nick.com.

SUNDAY

"Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" (7 p.m., WLS-Channel 7): Regis is back, and he's not afraid to ask the tough questions.

"There Goes the Neighborhood" (8 p.m., WBBM-Channel 2): Eight families and longtime friends are walled in and cut off from electricity. This is not going to be good for proprety values. My review is at http://blogs.suntimes.com/tv/

"Shark Tank" (8 p.m., WLS-Channel 7): Mark Burnett, the producer of "Survivor," brings us this reality show, which is set in an enormous fishtank. Will it sink or swim? My review is in the Sunday paper's entertainment section.

"The Comedy Central Roast" (9 p.m., Comedy Central): Joan Rivers is the honoree, with appearances by Tom Arnold, Carl Reiner, Kathy Griffin and more.

"Jesse James Is a Dead Man" (9 p.m., Spike): He's set himself on fire, outrun the police, and driven through a minefield. For the season finale, he goes for the land speed record for a hydrogen-powered vehicle. I bet his wife worries.
