SATURDAY


"Glass House: The Good Mother" (6 p.m., Lifetime): Nothing says "It's the weekend!" like an orphans-in-danger movie. Starring Angie Harmon and Jason London - the London twin who was NOT kidnapped and forced to take drugs.

"America's Most Wanted" (8 p.m., WFLD-Channel 32): On a serial killers special edition, John Walsh asks for help in identifying possible victim photos in Los Angeles's "Grim Sleeper" case. Also: an interview with the daughter of the "Happy Face" killer.

"Patrice O'Neal: Elephant in the Room" (9 p.m., Comedy): The comic, who has a recurring role as Lonny on "The Office," tackles topics including infidelity, safe sex and harassment.

SUNDAY


"Amazing Race: Unfinished Business" (7 p.m., WBBM-Channel 2): The 18th season premiere brings back some loveable losers for another chance. I'm torn between the Harlem Globetrotters and Goths Ken and Vyxsin.

"The Simpsons" (7 p.m., WFLD-Channel 32): Bart becomes a filmmaker with a character called Angry Dad. With voice cameos by Halle Berry, Ricky Gervais and Russell Brand.

"Snapped" (8 p.m., Oxygen): A true crime show that specializes in female killers. Finally.

"'Saturday Night Live' Backstage" (8 p.m., WMAQ-Channel 5): Classic clips, appearances by Tina Fey, Lorraine Newman, Chevy Chase, Billy Crystal, and my personal favorite: a present-day interview with Christopher Walken, who appears to have groomed his hair into a mullet.

"The Man Who Lost His Face" (9 p.m., TLC): A Portuguese man travels to Chicago to have a 12-pound tumor removed. You'll have to choose between this and . . .

"Facing Trauma" (9 p.m., Discovery Fit & Health): Victims of domestic violence share their stories and undergo reconstructive surgery.
