On TV this Sunday: The Indy 500 unleashes some very hot wheels, Harry’s Law argues its final case, Mad Men‘s Peggy feels trippy, one of HBO’s Girls learns a secret about her beau and more. In addition to the specials and marathons listed in our Memorial Day Weekend guide, here are eight programs to consider.
Noon Indianapolis 500 (ABC) | The 96th running promises to be the hottest one ever — literally, with temperatures expected to hit a high of 95. Use the A/C liberally, drivers. What?
8 pm Harry’s Law (NBC) | Series finale: When Harry’s ex-husband is found dead with no one to claim the body, she is burdened with planning the funeral, which to her surprise stirs up more emotion than she anticipated.
9 pm Game of Thrones (HBO) | Tyrion and the Lannisters fight for their lives as Stannis’ fleet assaults King’s Landing.
9 pm Mermaids: The Body Found (Animal Planet) | In this tongue-in-cheeky Monster Week “exposé,” testimony from “rogue” government scientists — coupled with computer animation, “eyewitness” video and photographic “evidence” — suggest the existence of a never-before-identified sea creature with ties to humans. Some of them even have dancing/singing crab friends!
9 pm Food Network Star (Food Network) | If only because the network has been running clips from my and Ausiello’s years-ago stint as “judges” (Guy Fieri makes a damn tasty fishbowl drink), I’ll give a shout-out to tonight’s Chopped-themed challenge.
9 pm The Good Wife (CBS) | Didja miss seeing Lisa Edelstein in that other TV show’s series finale? Catch her here in a repeat of her first of three TGW visits.
10 pm Mad Men (AMC) | Don is challenged by a pitch! Peggy contemplates a trip!
10:30 pm Girls (HBO) | At the “best party ever” in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Hannah learns Adam’s main defining trait, Marnie is beside herself after seeing Charlie, Jessa teases a mystery texter, and Ray becomes Shoshanna’s spirit guide.
