HIGHLIGHTS

Farewell, Speed channel — as of Saturday morning, Fox Sports 1 launches in its place, focusing on college sports, NASCAR and UFC.

Also, goodbye to “Do No Harm” (NBC at 10 p.m.), the Jekyll-and-Hyde medical series that was pulled off the weekday prime-time schedule almost immediately. In the series finale, Jason panics when his alter ego, Ian, unexpectedly starts taking over his body during his day job.

Oprah airs her much-anticipated Lindsay Lohan interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” (OWN at 9 p.m.), and if that’s not enough LiLo for you, Oprah’s network has also commissioned a reality show about her life.

On Season 4 of competition series “The Great Food Truck Race” (Food Network at 9), the eight teams compete to win not only a food truck but $50,000 to start the business. In the opener, everyone begins in Beverly Hills and must create a delicious $20 dish.

“Dexter” (Showtime at 9) tries to help his ex, Hannah, flee the country and multi-tasks by also trying to figure out if his protege is able to follow his code of serial killing.

Marisol doggedly continues to try to get her son out of jail by living a secret life on “Devious Maids” (Lifetime at 10), as she discovers information about Flora that could help the case.
