The ABC Weekend Special is a weekly 30-minute anthology TV series for children that aired Saturday mornings on ABC from 1977 to 1997. It featured a wide variety of stories that were both live-action and animated. Similar to both the ABC Afterschool Special and The ABC Saturday Superstar Movie that had started five years previous, the ABC Weekend Special differed in that it was primarily aimed at younger viewers following ABC's Saturday Morning cartoon lineup, whereas the ABC Afterschool Special was known for its somewhat more serious, and often dramatic storylines dealing with issues concerning a slightly older teen and pre-teen audience. With the debut of the ABC Weekend Special, some of the early ABC Afterschool Specials that had been targeted towards younger viewers were subsequently repackaged and re-run instead as ABC Weekend Specials.

Weekend was a television newsmagazine that ran on NBC from 1974 to 1979. It was originally aired once monthly on Saturday nights from 11:30 P.M. to 1 A.M. Eastern time, the same time slot as Saturday repeats of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson during its first season, then to replace Saturday Night Live, once a month on those weekends when the SNL cast was not producing a show. The program was awarded a George Foster Peabody medal in 1975 and attracted a cult following. The program was hosted by Lloyd Dobyns, who also did much of the reporting. The show's creator and executive producer was past president of NBC News, Reuven Frank. Together, Dobyns and Frank were largely responsible for the distinctive writing and quirky style of the program. In 1978, after four years of critical success and moderately good ratings for that hour, NBC moved Weekend to prime time. After airing once a month in various time slots in September, October, and November, the network placed the program weekly on Saturday nights at 10 P.M. Eastern time starting in December of 1978. Linda Ellerbee was added as Dobyns' co-host and co-lead reporter. Placed against strong programs on ABC and CBS, the show eventually died of poor ratings. A few years later, Ellerbee and Dobyns reunited to anchor another late-night NBC news program, NBC News Overnight.
Weekend Live was an American news/talk television program on Fox News Channel. The program featured live news story updates from correspondents, analysis from a number of different regular contributors, interviews with newsmakers of the week, and regular subject specific segments. Compared to other programming on the network, it didn't feature a commentary segment, but does have regular one-minute "Fox Real Time" news recaps. Broadcast live from the network's Washington, D.C. studios from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Saturday and 12:00–2:00 p.m. Sunday ET, the show was hosted by Bret Baier. The show had been previously hosted by Tony Snow from 2002 until 2003 on both ends of the weekend, and from 2003 until his departure to join the White House, on Saturdays, followed by Brian Wilson. The program ran as America's Election Headquarters, using that title during the 2008 presidential election campaign. The Weekend Live name was ultimately dropped altogether on November 5, 2008 and was retitled as America's News HQ.

Weekend World was a British television political series, made by London Weekend Television and broadcast from 1972 to 1988. Created by John Birt not long after he moved to LWT, the series was broadcast on the ITV network at lunchtimes on Sundays. Produced by Nick Elliott and David Elstein, it began by mirroring CBS's "60 Minutes" featuring several stories each week but gradually devolved into a show that featured a forensic interview with a major political figure each week. The original reporter/researcher staff included Yvonne Roberts, Monica Foot, Christopher Hitchens, Julian Mounter, Paul Flattery, Mike Englehard, Jane Hewland, Julian Norris and Nelson Mews, who were later joined by Peter Martin and David Cox. It was presented by Peter Jay initially when first broadcast in 1972, but was best-remembered for being anchored by former Labour MP Brian Walden between 1977 and 1986. Conservative MP Matthew Parris took over in 1986, resigning his seat, and presented the programme until the series ended in 1988. Walden in particular gained a reputation for "grilling" his interviewees over an extended interview in a manner that has only occasionally been seen on British television since. Parris, on the other hand, was largely criticised for his lighter and more laid-back style.
Weekend Outlook was a weekend morning weather program on The Weather Channel. It was comparable to First Outlook, but with a different focus: Weekend Outlook was geared toward weekend planning and forecasts, compared to the commuter/straightforward style of First Outlook. It also started one hour later than First Outlook; the first hour is occupied by Weather in the Classroom and then Sunrise Weather, a weekend-exclusive early morning weather program. Weekend Outlook was one of the lowest-rated programs on The Weather Channel. From 2003 to 2007, It was hosted by only Ray Stagich, then from 2007 to 2008, it was hosted by Stagich and Stokes. After Stokes was fired from TWC, he got replaced by Cheryl Lemke. She, however, was also fired during 2008 and got replaced by Mark Mancuso. That lasted until the show was canceled. Mancuso later was fired during 2009 and Stagich went on to Sunrise Weather. The Weekend Outlook name has also been used by The Weather Channel for weekend forecast inserts until 2003. Weekend Outlook made its debut as part of the large 2003 graphical relaunch of The Weather Channel. Upon the 2008 HD relaunch of The Weather Channel, Weekend Outlook temporarily used portions of the Weekend Planner package.

These included Anna Soubry, Adrian Mills, Kaye Adams, Sue Jay, Roger Cook, Bibi Baskin, Paul Ross, John Stapleton, James Whale, Ed Doolan, Victoria Derbyshire, Patricia Mitchell and Claudia Winkleman.
