“Save Me” (KOB-4 7 p.m.) In this kooky sitcom, Beth (Anne Heche) starts receiving messages from God after a near-death experience. Enjoy it while you can, it’s not on the lineup for fall.

“Showville” (AMC 7 p.m.) You know how much you love small-town talent shows? Well now you don’t have to go to the community center to watch one.

“Does Someone Have to Go?” (KASA-2 8 p.m.) In FOX’s newest reality show, employees at troubled companies decide which staff member to fire. … Remember that time you ate my lunch out of the fridge, Craig? Boo-yah!

Friday 24

“Invasion” (Animal Planet 5 p.m.) AnPlan kicks off its new invasive animal paranoia show with “Invasion of the Swamp Monsters.” Killer reptiles, giant pythons, virus-carrying snails: just the stuff to make you long for a nice summer vacation in Florida.

Saturday 25

“Sanjay and Craig” (Nickelodeon 8:30 a.m.) Created by the animators behind “Bob’s Burgers” and produced by the geniuses behind “The Adventures of Pete & Pete,” this crackpot cartoon introduces us to a kid and his talking snake (voiced by nerd comedian Chris Hardwick).

Monday 27

“Hit the Floor” (VH1 7 p.m.) VH1’s new series “follows the lives and loves of the Los Angeles Devil Girls, the premiere dance team in all of professional basketball.” Hey, at least it’s not a reality show.
