Game of Thrones (HBO, Sunday 9:00 p.m.) — It doesn’t seem like Benioff/Weiss are going to slowly lead us into this season as Cersei and Jaime deal with the aftermath of Tywin’s death and Tyrion’s absence, while Varys shares a secret with Tyrion and Daenerys is forced to deal with a new threat.

Mad Men (AMC, Sunday 10:00 p.m.) — Don is both given and asked for advice. And if we’re lucky, we’ll get a chance to see the dimly-lit, drafty and drippy basement work space that Don sent Lou to when he took back his job. Because Lou has a contract, so he isn’t going anywhere.

Daredevil (Netflix, Already Available) — Just in case you’re not already fully immersed in a marathon of Marvel’s first Netflix series, let this serve as a reminder that The Man Without Fear’s TV debut is available to watch with your face.

Grimm (NBC, Friday 8:00 p.m.) — Nick and Hank try to track down a Wesen that freezes people, and Juliette tries to get revenge on Adalind.

12 Monkeys/Helix (SYFY, Friday 9:00-11:00 p.m.) — Jones’ progress may be in jeopardy in the 12 Monkeys season finale, and Alan and Walker comes to what’s described in the synopsis as “a bloody climax” on the Helix season finale.

Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday 11:35 p.m.) — Taraji P. Henson hosts and Mumford and Sons will sing the songs. Here’s hoping for one great Cookie sketch and a whole lot of surprises.

MTV Movie Awards (MTV, Sunday 8:00 p.m.) — Amy Schumer hosts MTV’s annual salute to movie films.

The Last Man on Earth (FOX, Sunday 9:00 p.m.) — The synopsis this week (and in previous weeks) reads, “Phil’s life in Tucson continues.” So, you’ve got that for back-to-back episodes again this week.

Silicon Valley (HBO, Sunday 10:00 p.m.) — It’s a whole new world for Pied Piper after TechCrunch Disrupt and everyone wants a piece.

Veep (HBO, Sunday 10:30 p.m.) — Selina prepares for her first speech as President and Gary suffers from the distance between him and Selina.

LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Kevin James, Vanessa Hudgens and Dan White on Fallon.
