What to watch in Nashville: Weekend Edition May 1 and 2

Saturday, May 1

NCIS
7 p.m. CBS (WTVF Channel 5)
With thoughts and regrets of the past on their mind, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and company head back to work, with DiNozzo and McGee (Michael Weatherly, Sean Murray) beginning the search for Ziva’s (Cote de Pablo) replacement, an act that uncovers a startling truth. David McCallum also stars in the repeat episode “Truth or Consequences.”

Zack and Miri Make a Porno
8 p.m. Showtime
The title of writer/director Kevin Smith’s comedy pretty much spells out the entire plot of this comedy from 2009, which follows the recent trend of combining raunchy comedy with tremendous sweetness. Seth Rogen, who has built his career on this genre, and Elizabeth Banks play the title characters, two roommates who decide to make an amateur skin flick to cover their ever growing pile of debts, a process which results in the two discovering undisclosed feelings for each other.

Skinwalkers
8 p.m. SyFy
Sometimes the cheesy horror flicks are more fun to watch than the good ones. That’s definitely the case with this over-the-top werewolf movie about a half-lycanthrope boy approaching his thirteenth birthday. Puberty suddenly becomes the least of his problems when two warring factions of werewolves begin to wage a battle over him; one side sees him as the coming messiah, and the other just wants him dead. Jason Behr (Roswell) and Elias Koteas star.

Sunday, May 2

The Simpsons
7 p.m. Fox (Local WZTV Channel 17)
Springfield is thrust into a nightmare straight out of Orwell’s 1984 when the surveillance cameras are installed everywhere to beef up the town’s security; Lisa (Yeardley Smith) faces hair color prejudice and decides to dye her blond locks a darker color. Dan Castellaneta and Nancy Cartwright also provide voices in the new episode “To Surveil, With Love.”

Masterpiece Mystery!
8 p.m. PBS (Local WNPT Channel 8)
As “Foyle’s War” returns for another season, the war in Europe has come to an end, but the hopes of Detective Chief Superintendent Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) to end his crime fighting days are bound to end in utter disappointment. In the season opener, “The Russian House,” Foyle is assigned to track down an escaped Russian prisoner of war.

Breaking Bad
9 p.m. AMC
When Hank’s (Dean Norris) behavior grows increasingly more volatile and unpredictable, a confrontation with Jesse (Aaron Paul) and problems at the DEA become inevitable.
