Ride With Norman Reedus (AMC, Sunday 10:00 p.m.) – Even though The Walking Dead creators don’t really care about fans’ opinions, the show’s host network certainly does. AMC has heard the cry of the people and given us what we’ve wanted all along: more Norman Reedus. The crossbow-wielding hero from TWD is taking his love of motorcycles on the road and inviting some celebrity guests along with him. In the series premiere, he travels up the Pacific Coast Highway from Los Angeles to Santa Cruz, California.

Game of Thrones (HBO, Sunday 9:00 p.m.) – The long-awaited Brienne/Jamie reunion takes place tonight and word is, it won’t be a happy one. While the two are working things out at Riverrun, Tyrion’s plans for Meereen slowly start to come together and Arya faces a new challenge. (I guess we’ll see if that theory is true tonight.)

Hell on Wheels (AMC, Saturday 9:00 p.m.) – The showdown between Cullen and the Swede, who went on a murderous rampage on the Hatch, finally takes place.

O.J.: Made in America (ABC, Saturday 9:00 p.m.) – Part one of this five-part documentary chronicling the life of O.J. Simpson begins by taking a look at his football stardom in the 1960s and examining why the country fell in love with him off the field.

Outlander (Starz, Saturday 9:00 p.m.) – Jamie takes advantage of Claire’s being from the future by using her knowledge to lead the Jacobite army into battle. Claire meanwhile is busy tending to wounded Scots back at camp.

The 70th Annual Tony Awards (CBS, Sunday 8:00 p.m.) – After James Corden’s stellar Broadway-themed Carpool Karaoke, we’re pretty excited for him to be hosting this year’s Tony Awards. Of course, Hamilton is going to win everything (as it should), but that’s part of why you should watch. Lin-Manuel Miranda is a talented speech giver, after all.
