This weekend’s best bets on TV

Among this weekend’s best bets on television:

Saturday

A tsunami results in deadly sharks filling the aisles of an underground grocery store in the 2011 movie, “Bait.” We’re still trying to figure out why they didn’t call it “Supersharket.” 9 p.m., Syfy.

“Raiders of the Lost Art” is a new series that explores the mysterious stories behind the disappearance of some of the world’s most valuable artworks from museums, galleries and private homes. 8 p.m., Ovation.

Sunday

“Secrets of Her Majesty’s Secret Service” could tell us everything about the British foreign-intelligence agency, MI6, but then they’d have to kill us. 8 p.m., PBS.

LeAnn Rimes and Fall Out Boy entertain with others on “MDA Show of Strength Telethon,” at the annual fundraiser for Muscular Dystrophy research. 9 p.m., ABC.

The competitors on “The Great Food Truck Race,” bring their food trucks to Austin, Texas, where there’s already a food truck every 20 feet. 9 p.m., Food.

Season 4 of “Falling Skies” concludes with back-to-back hours. 9 p.m., TNT.

“Masters of Sex” continues its excellent season (pay attention, Emmy voters), but there’s trouble for Virginia (Lizzy Caplan) as she gets in over her head trying to treat Barbara Sanderson (Betsy Brandt) on her own. 10 p.m., Showtime.
