    or

    My favorite TV program is on the weekend. OK

    or do I need to use any kind of verb after is

    for example,

    My favorite TV program is shown on the weekend. This is the best one.
    Thank you^^

    In BE we say 'at the weekend'.

    'My favourite TV programme is on at the weekend' ('on' = 'shown').

    My favourite TV show is always on at weekends. (This means that whatever my favourite TV show is at any given time, it always seems to be shown on either a Saturday or a Sunday.)

    My favourite TV show is on at the weekend. (My current favourite show is shown on either a Saturday or a Sunday.)
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
