True Detective
(HBO, Sunday 9 p.m.) — With Colin Farrell’s now infamous meltdown about “the LeBrons, or whatever,” behind him, he and Ani set out to determine whether that dead guy turned up dead because of his affinity for, um, ladies of the night. Vince Vaughn continues his uppity use of Ebonics while searching for his missing money.

Ballers (HBO, Sunday 10 p.m.) — Like Lena Dunham before him, The Rock offers vital advice to someone close to him while sharing brunch, and Ricky’s ego comes back into play when he realizes that not all of the Dolphins players are thrilled to have him around.

The Brink (HBO, Sunday 10:30 p.m.) — Porn Stache is still tripping his face off while carrying out a top secret mission for the president, and Jack Black does his Zero Dark Thirty impersonation while being interrogated by Zaman’s soldiers.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO, Sunday 11 p.m.) — John Oliver tries to somehow top his epic takedown of internet trolls and revenge porn from last week.

Dennis Rodman’s Big Bang in Pyongyang (Showtime, Friday 9 p.m.) — Remember when Dennis Rodman self-appointed himself as the U.S. Ambassador to North Korea? Well, Showtime’s got a 95-minute documentary on his trips to visit supreme leader and noted basketball fan Kim Jong-un.

HUMANS (AMC, Sunday 9 p.m.) — Series premiere. The Hawkins family learns a valuable lesson in being careful what they wish for when Dad brings home the latest must-have in-home gadget… a robot butler called a “Synth.” The line between human and machine gets blurred as the family faces probably terrifying consequences after inviting an A.I. into their home.

LATE-NIGHT GUESTS: Benicio del Toro, Taylor Kitsch and Penn & Teller were supposed to be on Fallon, but the taping was canceled as the host had to undergo surgery after injuring his hand.
