Ride along

"Crash Test: With Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer" has the hosts picking up passengers like Aubrey Plaza and Natasha Leggero who pay for the fare by performing stand-up routines. Comics get the hook if — "Speed" reference! — the bus slows down to under 20 miles per hour. 10 p.m. Friday, Comedy Central

"Whitney Cummings: I'm Your Girlfriend" reminds you of her immense gifts with a no-holds-barred takedown of romantic conventions. 9 p.m. Saturday, HBO
