As part of its makeover, SyFy brings back a new season of "Eureka" tonight at 9 p.m.
While the series has had some legs entering its third season, I haven't followed it since the first, since it is one of those series that's a little too quirky for its own good.
The series centers around a town full of geniuses who come up with all sorts of clever devices that usually go awry. Usually, the town's sheriff (Colin Ferguson) helps solve the problem -- he's the only non-genius in town -- but he was fired last season and replaced by a cyborg. (I hate when that happens).
But, sure enough, the town soon needs Ferguson's help once more when something else goes wrong.
Meanwhile, two series wrap up this weekend.
ABC ends "Eli Stone" Saturday night at 10 p.m. This series was just the right amount of quirky, with Jonny Lee Miller playing a lawyer who may or may not be a prophet. They didn't have nearly the amount of musical numbers this season as they did last year, a shame because it meant less Victor Garber performing, but this was one of my favorite shows on ABC.
CBS wraps up the mystery series "Harper's Island" with consecutive episodes from 9-11 p.m. Saturday. Followers of the series (judging by the numbers, not that many) will finally get to know whodunnit.
WEEKEND'S BEST BETS: ABC continues to burn off original episodes of its series that didn't make it, with new episodes of "Surviving Suburbia" and "The Goode Family" airing from 8-9 p.m.
Meanwhile, Fox airs a new "Mental" at 9 p.m. It's not a good sign for a series when its switched from Tuesdays to Fridays during the summer, which is a shame, because this show has been fairly entertaining.

On Saturday, "Primeval" (BBC America, 9 p.m.) returns after a week's hiatus.
On Sunday, HBO brings back a new season of "Entourage" at 10:30 p.m., following new episodes of "True Blood" and "Hung."
On regular cable, "In Plain Sight" (USA, 10 p.m.) is new.
On regular TV, NBC kicks off the miniseries "Meteor" (NBC, 9 p.m.), about a giant rock set to hit the Earth. It comes on the heels of ABC's miniseries about the moon crashing into the Earth. I hope the networks come up with some new ideas, because these miniseries about things crashing into the Earth really freak me out.
"Masterpiece: Mystery" (PBS, 9 p.m.) continues its "Miss Marple" series.
