SATURDAY

"Ann Rule's Everything She Ever Wanted" (7 p.m., Lifetime Movie): In Part I of this Southern saga, Gina Gershon makes her husband dress up like Rhett Butler for their wedding day - and that's just the first of her evil deeds.

"True Jackson VP" (7:30 p.m., Nickelodeon): Keke Palmer, the pride of Robbins, Ill., is back for a second season. Care Bears on Fire - who have the best band name of all time - perform.

"Princesses of the World" (8 p.m., WTTW-Channel 11): Some of us will be watching for tips.

"Flower Girl" (8 p.m., Hallmark): Perky Marla Sokoloff from "The Practice" plays a girl whose main ambition is to get married. Marion Ross is her grandmother, who's picked out a nice doctor for her.

"13 Ghosts" (9 p.m., WCIU-Channel 26): William Castle's 1960 horror film about a haunted house gets the Svengoolie treatment. Fun fact: It was originally filmed in "Illusion-O," which is like 3D, but different.
