(CBS NEWS) The biggest entertainment news of this coming week is happening Saturday but you won't be able to see it for several weeks.

Guns N' Roses, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Beastie Boys and others are being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in an elaborate concert ceremony Saturday night in Cleveland. The presenters, who may do some performing themselves, include Green Day, Chuck D, John Mellancamp, Steven Van Zandt, Carole King, Better Midler and ZZ Top.

The ceremony is being taped and will be broadcast May 5 on HBO.

In New York that same night, TV Land, the channel for nostalgia buffs, is honoring Aretha Franklin and the casts of "In Living Color," "Laverne & Shirley," "One Day At A Time," and "Pee-wee's Playhouse." The taped awards ceremony will air on the channel on April 29.

In other TV highlights, look for the premiere of two more female-based comedies - "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23," on Wednesday on ABC and "Girls" on HBO on Sunday.

Also Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" returns Monday on the Travel Channel.

Music Lovers will see the release of albums by Alabama Shakes ("Boys & Girls"), Bonnie Raitt ( "Slipstream") and M. Ward ("A Wasteland Companion").

The only major motion picture opening this week is "The Cabin in the Woods" starring Chris Hemsworth and Bradley Whitford. The horror movie directed by Drew Goddard follows five friends as they  retreat to a woodland cabin for a brief getaway,

Among the DVDs being released Tuesday is "The Iron Lady," which won Meryl Streep an Oscar for her portrayal of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Look for the publication on Tuesday of "A Natural Woman," a memoir by singer songwriter Carole King, and "Come Home" by best-selling author Lisa Scottoline, whose previous thrillers include "Save Me," "Think Twice," and "Look Again."
