| No Comments | No TrackBacks

SATURDAY

"Lombardi" (7 p.m., HBO): No, it's not a betrayal of the Bears to watch this new profile of the football great.

"Private Screenings" (9 p.m., TCM): Liza Minnelli talks about her film and Broadway roles - and hopefully "Arrested Development," too. It's preceded by Mom and Dad's "Meet Me in St. Louis."

"Saturday Night Live" (10:30 p.m., WMAQ-Channel 5): They've got Pauls! Paul Rudd hosts, with Paul McCartney as the musical guest.



"Berserk" (9 p.m., WCIU-Channel 26): In this 1967 classic, Joan Crawford is the fishnets-clad ringmistress at a circus where people keep turning up dead. Svengoolie's news you can use: "Joan's doomed circus co-owner, Michael Gough, played Alfred the Butler in some 'Batman films' -- and Diana Dors, an antagonistic employee, was married to Richard Dawson of 'Family Feud.'"

SUNDAY



"Wishful Drinking" (8 p.m., HBO): Carrie Fisher reminisces about Mom and Dad, "Star Wars," Paul Simon and her bipolar disorder. The stage production was filmed in New Jersey.



"Leverage" (8 p.m., TNT): Dave Foley and Wil Wheaton, together at last, guest star in a new Santa-centric episode.

"Amazing Race" (7 p.m., WBBM-Channel 2): Will an all-woman team finally win? Feminism is at stake.

"Marry Me" (8 p.m., Lifetime): Lucy Liu plays a social worker who has to choose from three proposals. Personally, I'm pulling for Bobby Canavale, for obvious reasons.

"Basketball Wives" (7 p.m., VH1): In season 2, Chad Ochocinco romances Evelyn Lozada. You'll remember that in season 1, she swore never to date another athlete.

"Sarah Palin's Alaska" (8 p.m., TLC): Kate Gosselin attempts to go camping with her reality compatriot.
