Friday: On Magic City, Ike considers a risky deal with mob boss Sy Berman (James Caan). And if TV has taught us anything, it's that risky deals with mobsters usually don't turn out so well. 9 p.m., Starz.

Friday: More absurdity is coming our way on Season 2 of Comedy Bang! Bang! In the opener, Scott welcomes Sarah Silverman, and Reggie takes the day off. 10 p.m., IFC.

Saturday: Bad guys (and gals) had better watch out. Beware the Batman is a stylish new computer-animated series that has the DC Comics superhero returning in fine form to kick butt and do good. 10 a.m., Cartoon Network.

Sunday: The drama inside Atlantis Cable News with Jeff Daniels, Sam Waterston, Jane Fonda and Emily Mortimer continues with the season two premiere of The Newsroom. 9 p.m., HBO.

Sunday: Adam Richman's Fandemonium has the former Man v. Food host traveling to events with devoted fans bases to find out what makes them unique. Among his stops are the Daytona 500 to Trucks Gone Wild to some Kentucky horse race in early May. 10 p.m., Travel.
