Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Friday

Kevin Mazur

Louis C.K.: Oh My God Saturday at 10 p.m., HBO

Louis C.K. wants to prove he can write, direct, and star in a TV show and remain one of the best stand-up comics out there. His routines aren’t about one-liners; they’re observational pieces delivered with just the right amount of disbelief and cleverness. Among the subjects C.K. covers: socks, soldiers, Sigourney Weaver, nut allergies, and slavery.

Life With LaToya Saturday at 10:30 p.m., OWN

La-demented, anyone? The ad for this new La Toya la-show is la-cuckoo, as the Jackson sibling moves into a hotel, la-hangs with her “people” (i.e., hangers-on), and shows us how she’s la-germphobic. She talks about the pact she la-made long ago with Michael and Kathy Hilton to name their first children Paris, but I don’t think she’ll be la-sharing la-juice about la-post-Michael Jackson family struggles.

Spartacus: War of the Damned 9 p.m., Starz

The “Damned” thing ends for good.

Game of Thrones Sunday at 9 p.m., HBO

Khaleesi, what’s all this about a “huckleberry friend”?

Nurse Jackie Sunday at 9 p.m., Showtime

Zoey + Alanon = Fabtabulous. (See review, Page 25.)
