“America’s Next Top Model: College Edition”
REALITY. Tyra Banks, who earned a diploma from Harvard University’s Executive Education Owner/President Manager Program, wants to prove brainy is beautiful when a new cast of model wannabes — all of whom have pursued some form of higher education — compete on the catwalk. Another twist for Cycle 19: Viewers get to vote for their favorite photo shoots.
Season premiere, Friday, 8 p.m., The CW
DRAMA. Don’t worry, “True Blood” fans — if your favorite character gets killed off in Sunday’s finale, he/she can always return as a vampire, ghost or witchy vision next season.
Season finale, Sunday, 9 p.m., HBO
MOVIE. Your Saturday night just got a lot schlockier: Danny Trejo plays the janitor at a New England private school haunted by a demonic dead headmaster. Charisma Carpenter also stars — as the school’s sexy librarian, natch.
Saturday, 9 p.m., Syfy
