Weekend highlights:

Best bets for viewers:

Today: ABC rolls out Set for Life (8 p.m.), with Jimmy Kimmel hosting a high-stakes seven episode game show where contestants can win a monthly paycheck for up to 40 years. Also, Snoop Dogg guest stars on USA’s Monk (9 p.m.) in a ripped-from-the-headlines role as a rap star accused of murder.

Tomorrow: The indie darling and Oscar-winning Little Miss Sunshine, with its stellar ensemble cast, makes its cable debut (8 p.m., HBO). Greg Kinnear, Toni Collette, Alan Arkin (best supporting actor), Steve Carell, Abigail Breslin and Paul Dano are members of the dysfunctional family that bonds to accomplish a cherished dream on an unforgettable road trip.

Sunday: Design Star, HGTV’s search for the country’s best up-and-coming interior designer, returns for its second season at 10 p.m. This year’s competition is in Vegas, baby, with 11 contenders vying for the top prize — the chance to host their own show on the cable network. Elsewhere, competition is also the focus of TV One’s new series, David E. Talbert Presents: Stage Black, as the noted stage director seeks out undiscovered talent for the national tour of his next production, “Love in The Nick of Tyme,” starring Morris Chestnut (“Boyz n the Hood”) and R&B; recording artist Avant. A star-studded panel of judges, including actors Blair Underwood and Elise Neal, will make the call each week.
