It's going to be huge

NBC may have wanted to keep its distance from its former "Apprentice" host, but ratings trump principles almost every time, which explains why The Donald will be making an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." If you expect hard-hitting questions from Fallon, you haven't been watching the program. 10:35 p.m. Friday, KARE, Ch. 11

Games people play

Many kids who once dreamed about being firefighters and pop stars have channeled their ambitions toward becoming gaming moguls. That's the pretense behind "Game Shakers," a new series about a pair of Brooklyn 12-year-old girls who create an empire, despite the fact that they're saddled with an unreasonable curfew. 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nick

Playing the field

You can't go wrong picking Will Ferrell for your fantasy baseball league, as long as you restrict yourself to the games being played in "Ferrell Takes the Field," an amusing fundraising effort in which the comedian plays 10 positions for 10 different major-league teams over the course of one day. Ferrell is surprisingly adept, although he shouldn't be expecting a call from Paul Molitor anytime soon. 9 p.m. Saturday, HBO

Here comes the judge

All appears to be forgiven between the "2016 Miss America Competition" and Vanessa Williams, who was forced to relinquish her title 32 years ago after pictures of her in the buff appeared in Penthouse magazine. Williams, who will serve as head judge following a fairly successful career in music, should be honored with a replacement crown or, at the very least, a paper hat from Burger King. 8 p.m. Sunday, KSTP, Ch. 5
