What to Watch Sunday: Girls, Shameless and Three Other Premieres, Golden Globes and More
On TV this Sunday: Girls grab onto another season, say namaste to new Enlightened eps, the Gallaghers make their Shameless return, the Golden Globes fete Hollywood’s best and more. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm The 70th Annual Golden Globes (NBC) | Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler and 30 Rock‘s Tina Fey co-host the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual paean to television, movies and free booze. (See what Fey and Poehler have planned!)
8:30 pm Bob’s Burgers (Fox) | Bob winds up on a nude beach, and we’re guessing it’s as disturbing as it sounds. Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live) voices Tommy, a health inspector who blackmails the Belchers.
9 pm Girls (HBO) | Season 2 premiere: Hannah and new roommate Elijah (The New Normal‘s Andrew Rannells) throw a housewarming party, Marnie gets a visit from her mom (The Good Wife‘s Rita Wilson) and Jessa returns from her honeymoon.
9 pm The Good Wife (CBS) | Elsbeth Tascioni (returning guest star Carrie Preston) is arrested, so Alicia, Will and Diane step up to help her; Peter gets conflicting advice from Eli and Jordan.
9 pm Shameless (Showtime) | Season 3 premiere: Frank wakes up in a place completely foreign to him: Juarez, Mexico. (Read preview!)
9 pm Masterpiece Classic (PBS) | Downton Abbey: The estate’s fate hinges on a letter from a dead man, Edith and Sir Anthony share a crucial moment and Mrs. Hughes confronts a crisis.
9:30 pm Enlightened (HBO) | Season 2 premiere: With Tyler’s help – and possibly that of a reporter (My Best Friend’s Wedding‘s Dermot Mulroney) — Amy aims to take down Abadonn Industries bigwigs.
10 pm Happy Endings (ABC) | In “Kickball 2: The Kickening” — aka the “lost” episode from Season 2 — Alex convinces almost everyone (save for traitor Jane) to play on the kickball team her store is sponsoring for a city tournament. Get scoop on the episode (as given to us, like, seven months ago!).
10:30 pm Californication (Showtime) | Season 6 premiere: Charlie and Hank meet rocker Atticus Fetch, who wants to turn Hank’s book (well, actually the movie of Hank’s book) into a musical.
