The TV highlight of the week occurred last night with the appearance of CNBC's Jim Cramer on "The Daily Show". Jon Stewart trotted out several video clips of Cramer pontificating about how to game and mislead the markets and how rewarding it is to do so. A lot of footage was cut in order to fit the show's 1/2-hour format so if you missed the airing and/or want to see the entire interview, you can get it all at "The Daily Show".This weekend the big programming notes are the beginning of the end for "Battlestar Galactica" (where we've seen some Twitter traffic that's been negative about the show) and the beginning of the beginning for NBC's "Kings". "Kings" features Ian McShane whom we are huge fans of so we will give at least the first hour of it a chance on Sunday

Fans of AMC's "Breaking Bad" not only get another episode this Sunday, but they can also see Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul on E!'s "The Soup" tonight. This Saturday will be SNL-focused as Tracey Morgan returns to host the show, but earlier in the evening, fellow castmate Will Farrell will debut his "You're Welcome America. A Final Night With George W. Bush" on HBO (pictured, right). While we will watch this, we feel like this dog has run his race, it's time to move on. America could have used this play and HBO special about 5 years ago.

The TV Junkie Plan: Tonight - Bill Maher, "Mistresses", "The Soup", Letterman, Ferguson. Saturday - "Will Farrell/George Bush", Graham Norton, SNL. Sunday - "Big Love", "Breaking Bad"
