What to Watch Weekend Nov. 8-9

by Kim Potts, posted Nov 8th 2008 5:00AM
ruby'Ruby'
(Sun., 8PM, Style) series premiere
Pretty, charming and funny Ruby Gettinger has already embarked on a successful weight loss journey.

But the Savannah resident still has a way to go -- she's down to 500 pounds, from her all-time high of 700 -- and her doctor has just informed the diabetic that worse health problems are ahead if she doesn't radically change her lifestyle.

This inspirational, sometimes heartbreaking series follows Ruby as she deals with the challenges of living in a world that's not made for her size and commits to eating healthier, exercising and getting to the emotional root of her weight problem – with her friends (including actress Brittany Daniel), family, doctors and trainers helping her all the way.

'Summer Heights High'
(Sun., Time, HBO) series premiere
Comedian Chris Lilley stars in this hit Australian mockumentary in which he plays three characters at an Aussie high school: Mr. G, an effeminate drama teacher, Ja'mie, a snobby rich girl and the rebellious Jonah.

'Masterpiece Contemporary: God on Trial'
(Sun., Check local listings, PBS)
The powerful play, set in Auschwitz during World War II, finds Jewish prisoners putting God on trial for allowing the Nazis to commit genocide.

'Dexter'
(Sun., 9PM, Showtime)
Miguel presents Dexter with a new opportunity that may not live up to Dex's bad guy standards, while a sick, elderly friend of Dexter's asks him to assist her with suicide. Poor serial killer ... his intentions are so misunderstood.


'Crash: The Next Great Depression?'
(Sun., 10PM, History)
How similar is our current economic crisis to the 1929 stock market crash that led to the Great Depression? The mere fact that this special is even comparing and contrasting the two is more than a bit worrisome ...

'Rock of Love Charm School'
(Sun., 9PM, VH1)
'Royally Screwed' is the name of the episode, an apt title since Sharon sets the women loose on a duchess so they can display their etiquette skills. Or lack thereof.

'Mail Order Bride'
(Sat., 9PM, Hallmark)
What happens to Aaron Spelling stars of the past? They reunite for cable movies. 'Melrose Place' alum Daphne Zuniga is a con woman who tries to hide out by pretending to be a mail order bride for a Wyoming rancher ('Beverly Hills 90210' star Cameron Bancroft), but the scam may fall apart when her old boss ('Melrose'-er Greg Evigan) pops up.

Also on tonight:
- 'Legend of the Seeker' (Sat., check listings)
- 'Crocodile Feeding Frenzy' (Sun., 9PM, Discovery)
- 'Chef Jeff Project' (Sun., 10PM, Food Network)
- 'Skins' (Sun., 10PM, BBC America)
