Hannibal (NBC, Friday 10 p.m.) — Now that Hannibal has officially been renewed for a third season, we’re one season closer to Bryan Fuller’s awesome seven-year plan. Meanwhile, tonight’s episode will feature more Mason Verger, which is always a good thing.

Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday 11:30 p.m.) — With host Charlize Theron, who we haven’t really seen since Prometheus. She basically pulled a two-year mini-Alison Lohman on us.

Whose Line Is It Anyway? (CW, Friday 8 p.m.) — I wouldn’t normally mention it, but I did see that Keegan-Michael Key is on tonight’s episode. He’s awesome (and great in his new sitcom, Playing House over on USA).

Mad Men (AMC, Sunday 10 p.m.) — “Don receives a visitor from his past (Betty?); Stan embarrasses a superior; Ginsberg gets help from Peggy with a problem; Harry finds a new ally.” God, please don’t let Harry’s ally be Lou Avery. Also, I can’t believe there’s only three episodes left this season.

Rosemary’s Baby (NBC, Sunday 9 p.m.) — Rosemary’s Baby was directed by Roman Polanski, who was married to Sharon Tate, which I’m pretty sure means that Zoe Saldana is going to die.

Game of Thrones (HBO, Sunday 9 p.m.) — Tyrion faces down his father in the trial of the century, whatever century that is. I hope he hires Johnny Cochran to defend him. Meanwhile, Dany hangs out, enjoys some craft services, and waits around for her character TO FINALLY DO SOMETHING.

The Good Wife (CBS, Sunday 9 p.m.) — Eli finally learns that Peter and Alicia’s marriage is a sham.

Orphan Black (BBC America, Saturday 9 p.m.) — Michiel Huisman — who joined the cast last week — has now romanced Dany on Game of Thrones, Connie Britton on Nashville and Sarah on Orphan Black. Not a bad year at all.

Silicon Valley/Veep/Last Week Tonight (HBO, Sunday 10 p.m.) — Watch these shows.
