"The Price is Right," "Dexter"

The man show

Bob Barker may have been concerned about household pets when he was hosting "The Price Is Right" (10 a.m. Friday, WCCO, Ch. 4), but he never seemed to care about the fact that all the showcase models were women. That's about to change. In this episode, replacement host Drew Carey will reveal the male finalists vying for a chance to look cute in front of a brand new car.

Back to the future

If you're new to "Fringe" (8 p.m. Friday, KMSP, Ch. 9), which is in its fifth and final season, you will be as confounded as someone who tries to decipher a William Faulkner novel by reading only the last chapter. Long-term fans will find themselves shuttled into the year 2036 with only a minimal number of headaches.

Carrey almighty

Jim Carrey may be a terrific actor, but I'm not sure he's an ideal house guest. The comic's mugging nearly derails an "All-Star Comedy Roundtable" (9 p.m. Friday, Epix), which also features Chris Rock, Ben Stiller and Bill Hader.

The truth is out there

If anyone can keep a secret, it's "Dexter" (8 p.m. Sunday, Showtime). But even our favorite serial killer (Michael C. Hall) can no longer hide his hidden hobby from his foul-mouthed sister (Jennifer Carpenter) in this seventh season of a series that needs a twist this big to keep the show fresh.
