TV Watch List: Weekend, Nov. 11-13

Filmmaker/“Metal Evolution” host Sam Dunn, left, bangs heads with Alice Cooper in the mini-series exploring the history of heavy metal.

‘Metal Evolution’
MINI-SERIES. Sam Dunn hosts this 11-episode history lesson on all things heavy metal.

Series premiere, Friday, 10 p.m., VH1 Classic

‘Green Lantern: The Animated Series’
ANIMATED. Here’s another attempt to get a little love from novice comic book fans for Green Lantern (sorry about that box office flop, Hal Jordan). The superhero and his powerful ring get animated, so watch out, all those who worship evil’s might.
Series premiere, Friday, 7 p.m., Cartoon Network

‘Britney Spears: The Femme Fatale Tour’
MUSIC. The troubled pop princess proves she can still reign strong over an entire arena of worshippers in this hits-filled footage, taken from a two-night stint in Toronto during her summer Femme Fatale Tour.
Premiere, Saturday, 8 p.m., Epix

‘The Simpsons’
ANIMATED. Marge becomes a food blogger, which means we get a sriracha joke and an Anthony Bourdain cameo. Mmm… animated food porn. …
