Tuesday: Apparently, there are enough bad girls out there for a Season 11 of THE BAD GIRLS CLUB (Oxygen); likewise, there are enough preppers for Season 3 of DOOMSDAY PREPPERS, followed by the debut DOOMSDAY CASTLE, tonight (NatGeo). There’s also still an AMISH MAFIA, just so you know (Discovery). Also tonight, after the season premiere of FACE OFF, meet the HEROES OF COSPLAY, though they’d probably snag more viewers if they called it Hot Nerd Girls in Skimpy Outfits (Syfy).

Wednesday: Lawyer-bro comedy FRANKLIN & BASH finales for Season 3; no word if Franklin and/or Bash will be back for a fourth (TNT). And, rest easy, DUCK DYNASTY is back for another season of whatever they do on Duck Dynasty … which is … ? (A&E)

Thursday: If you remember a reality-competition show called THE PITCH, good for you; after the season premiere of that, OWNER’S MANUAL debuts—it’s about two guys doing dangerous stuff, one following the instructions, the other following “his gut” (AMC). Also returning for Season 2 tonight is POLYAMORY: MARRIED & DATING, where there is no owner’s manual, but plenty of guts (Showtime).

Friday; Nothing’s on, so come to The Complex in SLC and watch me on THE PAUL DUANE SHOW; it’s like Conan or Fallon, just live in a bar and hosted by a dude in pantyhose. Showtime is 8 pm—should be weird (PaulDuaneShow.com).

Saturday: Kirstie Alley stars in BABY SELLERS, a movie about a woman who traffics kiddies—hey, if there’s a market (Lifetime). In the series finale of the original British BEING HUMAN, the vampire, werewolf and ghost pals have a final showdown with the Devil himself (BBC America). Speaking of Satanism, AMERICA’S CUTEST DOG finales for the season with a “Fluff-a-Thon”—evil! (Animal Planet)

Sunday: THE GREAT FOOD TRUCK RACE premieres for Season 4—spoiler alert: Food trucks aren’t very fast, nor furious (Food Network). TRUE BLOOD finales, likely ridiculously, for the season (HBO); WHODUNNIT finales, definitely ridiculously, forever (ABC). If you’re coming to Brewvies Cinema Pub (677 South 200 West, 21+) to watch BREAKING BAD at 7 pm, get there early—like, maybe noon (AMC).

There is no owner’s manual for Gina Barberi—she’s an eternal mystery. Also, it was thrown out with the box.
