This weekend on TV: Love him or hate him, you'll love/hate "The World According to Dick Cheney"

The World According to Dick Cheney (10 p.m., Showtime), which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, is as polarizing as the man it's about.

Fans of the former vice president will think it's too hard on him; foes will think it's not hard enough on him. Cheney fans will enjoy his rise to power; Cheney foes will applaud when he's portrayed as a liar who led George W. Bush and America into the war in Iraq.
