Television » Just a bit to the south of Utah, there will be some craziness this weekend on TV. "Skywire Live with Nik Wallenda" will feature the circus perform trying to walk 1,500 feet on a highwire suspended over the Grand Canyon — and he’s not wearing a safety harness. (It’s also not exactly the Grand Canyon — it’s the Little Colorado River Gorge outside the national park.)

WHEN » Sunday, 6 p.m.

CHANNEL » Discovery

Local sports on TV » There’s Arena Football League on Friday — Utah Blaze at Spokane Shock (8 p.m., Channel 14); and Major League Soccer on Saturday — Seattle Sounders at Real Salt Lake (7:30 p.m., Channel 4)
