What to Watch: The TVLine-Up for Sunday

On TV this Sunday: Another Amazing Race comes to an end, Zach Galifianakis brings his Ferns to prime time, the Comedy Awards show you the funny, Sherlock is back on the case, GCB says C-YA and more. We made some tough calls and singled out 13 programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm The Amazing Race (CBS) | Two-hour Season 20 finale: As the final four teams battle for the $1 million prize, they must contend with a fast-paced Japanese game show and a not-so-relaxing “rescue mission” trip to Hawaii.

9 pm Desperate Housewives (ABC) | In the series’ penultimate episode, the ladies are shocked by Gaby’s nonchalant attitude as Bree continues to take the fall for Carlos in Alejandro’s murder trial. True Blood‘s Brit Morgan and Franklin & Bash‘s Reed Diamond guest-star.

9 pm Army Wives (Lifetime) | The tribe rallies to help Jackie as she sinks deeper into her pill addiction; Roland meets a man who claims to be David’s biological father; though an investigation exonerates the 32nd, Frank remains haunted by the orphans.

9 pm Nurse Jackie (Showtime) | Meeting with Kevin a cafe, Jackie is served divorce papers instead of lunch — bazinga! Cruz institutes a draconian dress code that is not a hit with his staff; Zoey looks for a new roommate and finds one in [see series title].

10 pm GCB (ABC) | Season finale: The GCBs find themselves in danger when Carlene takes them down to unincorporated Juarez for the Condos for Christian Living groundbreaking ceremony. Meanwhile Amanda’s suspicions regarding Luke lead to a surprising discovery about Ripp. Sandra Bernhard makes a special guest appearance.

10 pm Mad Men (AMC) | Peggy is irritated by a secret she has to keep! Pete covers for a friend! Don gets unexpected news!

  • You forgot about Sherlock on PBS’s Masterpiece Theater.

  • Um, Sherlock? Game of Thrones?

    • Ah, yes — SHERLOCK is a most legitimate oversight. I shall add! (GoT has been included every week this season so far; as such, it’s taking a breather this week.)

  • Seems to me like TV line is missing the mark when they don’t even mention the show who’s 2nd season has had the most buzz including increased ratings. I don’t remember Game of Thrones disappointing this year.

    Comment by Damien – May 6, 2012 03:54 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The excellent GAME OF THRONES been included every week this season so far; as such, it’s taking a breather this time around.

  • Game of Thrones isn’t even on this list? What gives? TVLine must have some kind of vendetta against it. Promoting Army Wives over GoT? Really TVLine? Shameful. Sarcasm btw. Although Army Wives sucks.

    All the Fox comedies seem pretty solid tonight. I’ll be watching them, DH, GCB, Once, RHONJ, and CA.

    • GOT dose not need to be on this list every week. they let different shows get notice each week.this week GOT is taking a break so please dont be rude to both Tvline and Armywives fans

  • Too many great shows to watch. Man, once May is over it’s going to be a whole different ball game on Sunday nights. I’ll be watching the AMAZING Game of Thrones and Sherlock plus Mad Men, Once Upon a Time, Girls, Veep, comedy awards, Between Two Ferns, the Borgias. Putting that PVR to good use today.

  • Cougarton Abbey and Inspector Spacetime on Bluray.

    Comment by Abed – May 6, 2012 07:07 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • TAR. OUAT. DH. GCB. Nurse Jackie. Killing. Mad Men. Veep. GoT.

    Thank goodness for DVRs.

    I think it is fair you gave thrones a break. You should give Girls a similar break. It’s been up there for four weeks in a row and it’s one of the worst shows in television history.

    • Nope, GIRLS didn’t make the cut last week.

      Comment by Matt Webb Mitovich – May 6, 2012 07:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The Killing, Mad Men & the season finale of Amazing Race. I’ll be disappointed if Rachel and Dave wins the $1 million prize.
