What to Watch: Weekend Edition

FRIDAY

12pm ET - ESPN2 - French Open - Maria Sharapova vs. Yaroslava Shvedova. Won’t believe you if you say you’re watching for the “tennis.”

7pm - ESPN2 - NCAA Women’s College World Series: #3 Washington vs. #10 Arizona St. - Bracket.

9pm - ESPN2 - NCAA Women’s College World Series: #5 Michigan vs. #1 Florida - Winner takes on either #9 Arizona or #4Alabama.

9pm - ESPN – NBA Western Conference Finals, Game 6: Lakers @ Nuggets - Can the Lakers FINALLY string together two good games? Doubtful.

Non-sports pick - 9pm - ABC - Unbroke: What You Need To Know About Money - Seems like something everyone should watch. Wait, what's that? A financial advisor talks to Will Smith, Samuel L. Jackson, and others about finances? Jackson will explain that if you buy Kangol hats in bulk you can save a few bucks. Will Smith will share that parents just don't understand and you shouldn't listen to their advice.


SATURDAY
12pm/2pm/7pm/9pm - ESPN - NCAA College Women’s World Series - This will show you who is playing when.

1:30pm - NBC - French Open - How long does this tournament run? It's like three weeks of tennis.

3pm - CBS - PGA: Crowne Plaza Invitational, third round - Leaderboard.

4pm - Fox – MLB: Dodgers @ Cubs
OR Braves @ Diamondbacks
OR Twins @ Rays

8pm - NBC – Stanley Cup Final, Game 1: Penguins @ Red Wings - Will the short rest hurt the already injured Red Wings?

8:30pm - TNT – NBA Eastern Conference Finals, Game 6: Cavaliers @ Magic - Magic get their second chance to close it out. If they can't take care of business at home they will have to travel back to Cleveland for a Game 7.

Non-sports pick - 5pm - Fx - When Stunts Go Bad - It's a marathon! What could be better?

SUNDAY
12:30pm - TBS – MLB: Yankees @ Indians - Indians’ Carl Pavano pitches against his former team in Cleveland. So that means there's at least a less chance he'll be booed.

1:30pm - Fox - NASCAR: Autism Speaks 400 - Well, at least it's going around in circles for a good cause.

3pm - CBS - PGA: Crowne Plaza Invitational, final round - Follow along with the leaderboard.

3pm - NBC - French Open - No live action. Just same-day tape.

8pm - ESPN – MLB: Dodgers @ Cubs - The under-achieving Cubs face the top team in baseball.

8:30pm - ABC – NBA Western Conference Finals, Game 7: Nuggets @ Lakers - Only if necessary.

TBD - NBC – Stanley Cup Finals, Game 2: Penguins @ Red Wings - Back to back games? NBC really hates hockey. Blame Conan.

Non-sports pick - 2pm - TNT - LA Confidential - Little interesting fact - the long speech Guy Pearce gives at the end of the film was given to him the night before they shot the scene.
