Critic’s corner: What’s on TV this weekend

Adam James

The Wrong Woman Saturday, 8 p.m., Lifetime

Somewhere, someone thought, “Hey, let’s remake Alfred Hitchcock’s classic ‘The Wrong Man’ with a gender flip, starring Winnie Cooper, Urkel, and Jerry from ‘Parks and Recreation.’ ” And Lifetime decided, “Yes, we will run that movie!” Danica McKellar (Winnie from “The Wonder Years”) plays Ellen Plainview, a mild-mannered wife and mom who suddenly finds herself under arrest for murder with the evidence mounting. Jim O’Heir (Jerry from “Parks and Rec”) is her lawyer and Jaleel White (Urkel from “Family Matters”) is the detective on the case. Basically, we love everything about this.


Sex Sent Me to the ER Saturday, 10 p.m., TLC

Somewhere, someone thought, “Hey, let’s get shameless people to tell their incredibly embarrassing stories about mishaps they’ve had while making love that are so serious they had to go to the hospital. And, also, let’s do re-enactments!” And TLC said “Yes, that’s about our speed, bring it on.” The series premiere includes a “fractured” male member. Basically, we’re embarrassed by everything about this.
