TV critic's picks for Saturday, Dec. 29

Gone, and almost forgotten

The networks are using this slow weekend to burn off fresh episodes of canceled shows, which should please the 17 fans of "Made in Jersey" (7 and 8 p.m. Saturday, WCCO, Ch. 4) and the 13 fans of "The Mob Doctor" (8 p.m. Saturday, KMSP, Ch. 9), which gets my vote as the most poorly conceived show of 2012.

This means war

In the new series "Food Court Wars" (9 p.m. Saturday, Food), Perkins & Sons hot dogs takes on Kettle n' Spouts shrimp-and-grits to see who will get the honor of serving wary shoppers in a location certain to be near an Orange Julius.

Grey's anatomy

Those Ling sisters are a curious duo. While Lisa Ling digs into all sorts of sex operations on the OWN network, Laura Ling looks into the most-talked-about book of the year in "E! Investigates: The Real 50 Shades of Grey" (9:30 p.m. Sunday, E!).
