Most likely this combination of weekend schedules will go on through the summer as the original programming continues to dwindle.

Why has no one pointed out that this should be up for tomorrow (SUNDAY) & not today (SATURDAY)???

I'm not getting your issue. The post covers both Saturday AND Sunday thus the "What's On This Weekend" title and not "What's on Tonight."
