As if you needed another reason to watch Spartacus, this is a sexy pic of slave turned warrior, Saxa (Ellen Hollman). The photo is part of an ongoing, “In the Tub” series which benefits breast cancer research. Here’s what you need to watch this weekend.


Spartacus @ 9pm, Starz: You call them marauders, I call them pirates. Either way, Spartacus needs to strike a deal or risk starving his people.

The Job @ 8pm, CBS: Someone gave Mark Burnett another reality show. This one’s about…jobs. No way, you got that from the title?

Nikita @ 8pm, The CW: Nikita heads to Kosovo, presumably to kick some Bosnian/Serb ass.


Saturday Night Live @ 11:30pm, NBC: Justin Bieber pulls double duty this week as host and musical guest.

Kansas-Oklahoma @ 4pm, ESPN: Could the Jayhawks lose three games in a row for the first time in history?

Rugby Sevens @ 4pm, NBC: I get it, rugby’s not your thing. But trust me, 7-man is entertaining.


Grammy Awards @ 8pm, CBS: Entertainers have been warned to cover up lest some poor teenage kid at home accidentally see Beyonce’s upper thigh and get a boner.

Downton Abbey @ 9pm, PBS: Yes, I’m recommending this show and yes, I’ve never watched it…sadly, I might add.

House of Lies @ 10pm, Showtime: If this show gets a third season, I’ll be shocked. Though I do enjoy watching Kristen Bell.
