What to Watch on Saturday: Former Miss NC assists on 'Psychic Tia' on A&E

Zero Hour (8pm, NBC) - The final two episodes of the series air tonight, the 9 o'clock episode focusing on Hank as the fate of the world rests on his shoulders. He arrives at the entrance to New Jerusalem with Beck and Arron, but time is running out to find Rachel and stop Lynch's diabolical plan.

Psychic Tia (10pm, A&E) - A young girl receives love advice from her deceased father in the opener of this reality series following a New Jersey psychic medium. In a second episode at 10:30, a psychic party is thrown. Of special interest, perhaps, to local viewers, 2011 Miss North Carolina Hailey Best works as Tia's assistant and stars in the series. Hailey is in white on the left, if you needed to ask.

"Sinbad: It's Just Family" features a family that seems...normal

There were rumors awhile ago that comedian Sinbad was dead.

Nope.

Just like his network pal Toni Braxton (see above), he just went bankrupt.

Since then, he's been working his way back and revamping his life.

He remarried his wife, and after losing his house, moved back in with her and his grown children.

That's the starting point of "Sinbad: It's Just Family" (We TV, 10 tonight), a cute little venture that plays more like sitcom than a reality show.

What to Watch on Tuesday: A food (and sports?) revolution

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution (8pm, ABC) - Chef Jamie Oliver brings his Food Revolution to Los Angeles for Season 2, and things get off to a rocky start when the LA Unified School District refuses to give him access to the schools. We loved Season 1's efforts in Huntington, West Virginia, even if they weren't a complete success.

Braxton Family Values (9pm, WeTV) - R&B star Toni Braxton's new reality series follows her and her sisters as they pursue careers in entertainment. Read our review.

Frontline: Football High (9pm, UNC-TV) - A new documentary exploring the pressurized world of high school football, which now sports nationally televised games and corporate sponsorship. This special looks at the experience of a small high school in northwest Arkansas that is striving to join the national elite, and also at the rising rates of injuries and even death among the athletes. Then stay tuned for ...

Frontline: Money and March Madness (10pm, UNC-TV) - This is a report the rest of the country was talking about a few weeks ago when it debuted nationally. Frontline reporters examine the multibillion dollar business of the NCAA and college sports, in which everyone makes money except the players themselves.

The Good Wife (10pm, CBS) - The results are in! Did Peter win the state's attorney race? Also, the firm tangles with a South American dictator when it represents a small drilling contractor in a dispute against a major oil company.

Observations on "The Celebrity Apprentice"

From watching the first, very fun episode (NBC, 9 tonight)

Rod Blagojevich: The former disgraced Illinois governor adds an interesting element; someone all the celebrities can feel a little superior about. After all, a druggie celebrity is not as bad as a crooked politician. Blagojevich is in it to clear his name (his NBC bio says he was "hijacked" from office) and also to show us he's a good guy. We'll see. Plus his hair trumps Donald's.

Cyndi Lauper: Not a mean bone in her body. A spacey charmer. Love her.

Rosie vs. The Donald: That feud that started when Rosie O'Donnell was on "The View"? Real and not over.

Holly Robinson Peete: Maybe not as intimidating as her husband, former Carolina Panthers QB Rodney, but probably tougher. This is the woman who once knocked down Robin Givens for talking about her mother.

Sinbad: The show's Greek chorus. Look for him to give clarity, even if it isn't needed.
