06.01.12 17 Comments

Game of Thrones (HBO, Sunday) – Season finale. SEASON FINALE?! But that means it’s ENDING! How can it be ending when it feels like it just started?! Holy crap. What am I supposed to do with my Sundays from now on? At least I have “Mad Men.”

Mad Men (AMC, Sunday) – The fifth season’s penultimate episode. Wait, but “penultimate” means SECOND TO LAST! What is going on?! WHY DOES EVERYTHING I LOVE LEAVE ME?

Best Friends Forever (NBC, Friday) – The last episodes of this show are airing back-to-back tonight. It was a really promising comedy that NBC buried, killed, and is now burning off two at a time on a Friday night in June. A+ work all around, Peacock.

Miss USA Pageant (NBC, Sunday) – Which one is this? Is this the Donald Trump one? I’m rooting for whichever contestant would make him saddest.

The Glades/Longmire (A&E, Sunday) – Season premiere of “The Glades,” and series premiere of “Longmire,” a show about a Wyoming lawman. Sorry, “Longmire,” there’s only room for one frontier television lawman in my life, and he lives in Harlan.

Veep/Girls (HBO, Sunday) – The thing I like about “Veep” — besides the fact that it is a great TV show — is all the news stories about whether or not that’s what it’s really like to be vice president, often with quotes from someone in Joe Biden’s office. I bet that person loves their job. “Yeah, no. It’s a TV show. Uh huh, yeah. Fiction. What? No, fiction is the made-up one. You’re thinking of biographies.”

MTV Movie Awards (MTV, Sunday) – Hosted by Russell Brand. My expert prediction is that Twilight and The Hunger Games will win dozens of awards that will be presented to them by people I have never heard of.
