This Weekend’s Top TV Picks
We've come to the end of the road for "Prison Break" (Fox, Friday, 8 p.m. ET/PT), an intriguing concept that has long since stopped being intriguing. Which is what tends to happen when the networks insist on stretching mini-series ideas out to series proportions. Still, if you've stuck with the show this long, let's hope you get an end that satisfies.
This is a big weekend for seasonal departures, but there are a few season premieres as well - led by the BBC America return of the cult favorite "Primeval" (Saturday, 9 p.m. ET/PT). Look for more monsters, a few new cast members, and a rare-for-TV trip to the British Museum.
It's time once again for "Survivor" (CBS, Sunday, 8 p.m. ET/PT) to crown a new survivor. You get two hours for the victory march, and then a final reunion hour as a recap.
"Desperate Housewives" (ABC, Sunday, 9 p.m. ET/PT) wraps up with a two-hour special, as Bree's divorce hits a speed bump and Dave threatens to make good on his plan to kill little MJ. (Which surely the show won't let him do.) The last few weeks have dragged a bit, in part because Dave's secret plan -- which was never much of a secret -- was revealed too soon. Still, overall it's been a very strong season, which will end, with any luck, with an equally strong finale.
