On TV this Sunday: Weeds and Episodes, how we’ve missed you; The Glades goes gourmet; there’s a pretty (smart) new face in The Newsroom and True Blood tries burlesque on for size. Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm Oprah’s Next Chapter (OWN) | Oprah sits down with NBA Champions LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat.
9 pm The Glades (A&E) | When Jim finds the owner of his favorite food truck dead in its kitchen, he lands in the center of a political battle between gourmet food trucks and boardwalk restaurants. In related news, I suddenly find myself with a hankering for the street meat sold outside the TVLine offices. Be right back…
9 pm True Blood (HBO) | Sam’s shifter friends invite him for a run, Sookie opens up to Alcide, Eric and Bill don’t know whether they’ll survive the search for Russell, and Andy and Jason go to a burlesque party.
9 pm Drop Dead Diva (Lifetime) | Jane’s in for some royal pains when she represents a young woman who wants to get out of an arranged marriage to a prince.
9 pm Falling Skies (TNT) | Someone steals Ben and Hal’s bikes, and the search to retrieve them leads to the discovery of something much bigger. Elsewhere, Matt’s in danger and Weaver is reunited with a family member. (Get scoop!)
10 pm Weeds (Showtime) | As scooped by Ask Ausiello, Nancy is rushed to the hospital in the eighth and final season premiere, and she fights for her life while her family and friends wonder who the heck pulled the trigger. Who do you think did it? Hit the comments with your wild speculation!
10 pm Longmire (A&E) | Walt’s on the trail of a “dog soldier,” a legendary Cheyenne warrior (who’s actually probably a scuzzy sex offender who’s kidnapping foster children). Read about Season 2 and get scoop!
10 pm The Newsroom (HBO) | Mac attack! Will’s new executive producer takes charge and brings in Sloan Sabbith (Olivia Munn), a smart, hot on-air economist, to do a nightly segment. Ooh, and “a long-festering breakup secret gets out.” I know the show’s only been on for a week, but seeing as how we’re already tossing out ideas about Weeds’ gunman, who do you think the unhappy Newsroom couple could be?
10 pm Army Wives (Lifetime) | Hector’s guilt gets in the way of his reconciling with Gloria, and Roland and Joan wrestle with whether or not to report Marcus to his parole officer. Veep’s Anna Chlumsky guest-stars.
10:30 pm Episodes (Showtime) | Season premiere: Sean and Beverly get ready for the Pucks! series premiere, and Matt deals with the consequences of his sexual misadventure (while having a new one fall right into his lap).
