SATURDAY

"You Lucky Dog" (8 p.m., Hallmark): Natasha Henstridge and Harry Hamlin play siblings who try to save the family farm with the help of a rescue Border collie. Aw.

"Swamp Thing" (9 p.m., WCIU-Channel 26): Wes Craven's '82 classic brought together Louis Jourdan, Adrienne Barbeau and Ray Wise. Bliss. And if you see Rich Koz (a.k.a. Svengoolie) around town, congratulate him: He was recently honored by the Museum of Broadcast Communications.

"Supergator" (6 p.m., SyFy): Kelly McGillis stars (not as the enormous alligator) in this 2007 thriller, followed at 8 p.m. with its much-anticipated sequel: "Dinocroc Vs. Supergator." which features the late David Carradine (not as either alligator).

SUNDAY

"BET Awards '10" (7 p.m., BET): Queen Latifah hosts, with a Lifetime Achievement award for Prince.

"Daytime Emmy Awards" (8 p.m., WBBM-Channel 2): Regis Philbin hosts, with a tribute to Dick Clark.

"Ellen's Somewhat Special Special" (8 p.m., TBS): Her variety show includes Lady Antebellum, comic-magician James Galea and gymnast Dominic Lacasse. It's followed at by "Team Coco Presents Conan's Writers Live," which boasts the pride of Yorkville High, Andy Richter. Both shows were recorded at the recent Just for Laughs festival in Chicago.

"Hung" (9 p.m., HBO): The second season starts with Tanya consulting a professional pimp.

"Entourage" (9:30 p.m., HBO): If this is the seventh season, can we still call the boys "the boys"? Watch for director Nick Cassavetes, who persuades Vince to do his own stunts on a film. Am I the only one who loved Cassavetes in 1988's "Assault of the Killer Bimbos"?
