Your best bets for weekend TV

HBO (tv network)Anderson Cooper20-20 (tv program)SUVs and CrossoversAdult Swim (tv network)

Fire up that DVR: Here's our picks for Friday-Sunday.

FRIDAY


•"NSTF:SD:SUV" (Midnight; Adult Swim):
The series premiere of the show (above) that rightfully takes "CSI" and "SUV" and all those other acronym-happy programs down a peg.

"Deadly Women: Deadliest Women" (8 p.m.; ID): Not sure what exactly qualifies a deadly woman as deadlier than another, but ID is helping us out.

"20/20" (9 p.m.; WMAR/ABC): I usually don't recommend "20/20," but this episode is about people with "unusual super-powers," like a dude who can draw cityscapes from memory. Cool/scary. 

• "Heat Seekers" (10 p.m.; Food): It's all about spicy eats in this new series, hosted by chefs Aaron Sanchez and Roger Mooking. "Flaming-hot cocktails" included. Yes, they don't even get to cool off with water.

"I Shouldn't Be Alive" (10 p.m.; Animal Planet): Worst first date ever: A pair of climbers caught in an electrical storm on the Swiss Alps. 

 • "Young, Broke & Beautiful" (11 p.m.; IFC): Broke-Ass Stewart visits a New Orleans cemetery. Yes, that would be cheap. 

SATURDAY• "True Life: I Had My Roommate" (1 p.m.; MTV): Miss this the first time? it's a must-watch.

"WNBA All-Star Game (3:30 p.m.; WMAR/ABC): You care, right?  

"Comic-Con Live" (4 p.m.; G4): It's almost like you're there! Plus, you don't have to navigate through the field of cosplay folks.

"Dogs 101" (8 p.m.; Animal Planet): Don't know about you, but I'm dying to learn more about the chiweenie breed.

"Style Exposed" (9 p.m.; Style): A Los Angeles DJ has seven adopted children. Ready-made rave!

SUNDAY• "60 Minutes" (7 p.m.; WJZ/CBS): Anderson Cooper swims unprotected with great white sharks. I repeat: Anderson Cooper swims unprotected with great white sharks.

"True Blood" (9 p.m.; HBO): Lafayette travels with Jesus to Mexico to likely do something Wiccan-related.  

 "Same Name" (9 p.m.; WJZ/CBS): A new reality show in which celebrities meet ordinary folks who share their name. Seriously, there's another David Hasselhoff out there.

"Entourage" (10:30 p.m.; HBO): The final season begins (mercifully).
