It’s J-Mo’s birthday weekend! Happy birthday, J-Mo! We love you!

The Firm (NBC 9pm) The police release Mitch after clearing him as a suspect; Mitch visits Sarah in jail, but she won’t answer his questions; Ray finds a clue about Mitch’s pursuer; Tammy and Abby investigate a list left by Moxon.
Why, John Grisham? Why?
Being Human (BBC America 9pm) Season premiere: Annie, George and Tom struggle to live under-the-radar in a sleepy, seaside town.
The British version, for those of you who can’t get enough of the whole werewolf/ghost/vampire roommate drama.
My Big Redneck Vacation (CMT 9:30pm) Episode: The Clampets take Manhattan
It’s comforting to know that it’s not just people from New Jersey who are willing to exploit stereotypes about their region for our entertainment and edification.
48 Hours Mystery (CBS 10pm) From a Mexican prison, a former reality-TV producer accused of brutally murdering his wife discusses the case and his pre-trial hearing.
Has anybody been following this story? The guy was a producer on Survivor, one would think that he could have found a more exotic location for bumping off his wife.
An Idiot Abroad (The Science Channel 10pm) Route 66: Karl joins a high school choir, hangs out with new age therapists and does wing-walking.
Ricky Gervais I could do without, but Stephen Merchant is freaking hilarious. Also, I used to live just off of Route 66 in Flagstaff, AZ, and believe me, that whole region is filled to the brim with wackadoodles.
Wheatley was my favorite part of Portal 2

The Amazing Race (CBS 8pm) While the teams race through Buenos Aires, Argentina, the stress causes one team to break down into tears; the racers go to the world’s largest cattle market.
The best thing about The Amazing Race is that it means Fran and Berry are back to recapping it. Also Fran is pregnant, so send lots of happy thoughts her way. Congratulations, you guys!
The 84th Annual Academy Awards (ABC 8:30pm)
Billy Crystal is hosting again! It might actually be worth watching this year.
Celebrity Apprentice (NBC 9pm) The teams are tasked with creating and performing an original Medieval Times show in front of an audience; one team struggles with an insubordinate player, while a serious injury threatens to derail the other team’s show.
I’m so hoping that the serious injury involves a morningstar and Teresa Giudice’s face.
The Walking Dead (AMC 9pm) Rick and Shane are in conflict over the fate of an outsider; Andrea helps Hershel’s daughter face a crucial decision.
This show actually makes me take comfort in the fact that, come the zombie apocalypse, I will almost certainly be among the zombies and not one of the survivors.
This is pretty much what I look like when I first wake up.
What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (TCM 9:45) A Hollywood child-star has-been torments her famous sister, now in a wheelchair.Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Victor Buono, Marjorie Bennett, Anna Lee
This movie scared the shit out of me when I was twelve, and forever altered my relationship with my sister.
I know it’s already half over, but what are you watching this weekend?
