Weekend TV: 'Grimm,' 'Wedding Band'
Posted November 8, 2012
NBC, Friday, 9 ET/PT
Hank reopens a case Friday because he now knows there are monsters in the world, and he didn't when he rejected a man's claim of "monster self-defense." The man, by the way, is played by guest star Jason Gedrick, a very fine actor who has had trouble finding a regular spot on a show that sticks. Let's hope he keeps looking.
TBS, Saturday, 10 ET/PT
Considering how aggressively terrible most TBS shows are, you've probably already decided not to stay in on a Saturday night just to catch Wedding Band, an hour-long comedy starring Brian Austin Green, Pete Cambor, Harold Perrineau and Derek Miller as the unusually dedicated and capable members of a band trying to break into the event circuit big-time. But if you are around, you'll find the show is a surprisingly pleasant, sometimes very funny diversion — particularly once Melora Hardin shows up as the Queen of Seattle Events.
National Salute to Veterans
PBS, Sunday, 8 ET/PT, times may vary
In some ways, Veterans Day is a neglected holiday. Our attention has shifted to Memorial Day, and the original distinction between the two — Veterans Day for all who served, but with a focus on the living; Memorial Day for those who lost their lives — has begun to fade. Still, on Sunday PBS gives the holiday its own special with this hour hosted by Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise, which is nice, even if the performances are clips from, you guessed it, PBS' National Memorial Day Concerts.
