SATURDAY

"House Husbands of Hollywood" (8 p.m., Fox Reality): If you do not watch this show, I will have failed.

"Deadly Mantis" (9 p.m., WCIU-Channel 26): Svengoolie has added "Svensurround" to the tender story of a prehistoric giant praying mantis who attacks America.

"The Car" (1 .m., Me-TV): James Brolin takes on an evil car - is it a phantom, a demon, or the devil himself? Other notable castmembers: Ronny Cox, Melody Thomas Scott (the long beleaguered Nikki on "The Young and the Restless") and Kim Richards (Paris Hilton's aunt!).

SUNDAY

"Mad Men" (9 p.m., AMC): The three-and-a-half-star start of season three includes a look at Don Draper's origins.

"My Antonio" (Sabato Jr. matchmaker show) on VH1 Those of you who were hoping Antonio Banderas was back on the market - sorry. Antonio Sabato Jr. and his mother are on the hunt for the next Mrs. Underwear Model.

"Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami" (8 p.m., E!): The news that Kourtney Kardashian is unexpectedly pregnant makes the show a bit more intriguing. Will there be footage of the day she forgot to take her pill?

"Reality Hell" (9:45 p.m., E!): An update on the enjoyable "Joe Schmo Show," except each week a different person will be competing on a reality show that turns out to be scripted and populated with actors. How is that different from the traditional reality show again?

"High Seas Heroes: Fighting Back Pirates" (7 p.m., TLC): Revisiting the April incident when a captain was taken hostage by Somali pirates.
