What to Watch Sunday: Finales for Mad Men and Veep, Diva's Back, Maids Gets Devious and More
Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.
6 pm Inside the Actors Studio (Bravo) | A special rebroadcast of the late James Gandolfini’s appearance on the series, which originally aired Oct. 17, 2004.
8 pm Celebrity Wife Swap (ABC) | Season 2 summer premiere: Sarah Palin’s daughters Bristol and Willow trade lives with Joan and Melissa Rivers. (There’s probably enough drama for a whole series, right?)
8 pm Cupcake Wars (Food Network) | The bakers compete for the chance to serve their creations at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair.
9 pm Drop Dead Diva (Lifetime) | Season 5 premiere: Jane searches for Owen, who went missing after seeing her kiss Grayson before their wedding.
9 pm Whodunnit? (ABC) | Series premiere: In this competition series, 13 strangers play a high-stakes game of murder and intrigue at Rue Manor. In each episode, contestants face elimination as they try to determine the “killer” among them. (Sounds a lot like The Mole, but without Anderson Cooper’s impeccable hosting skills.)
9 pm Crossing Lines (NBC) | Two-hour series premiere: Former NYPD detective Carl Hickman (Prison Break‘s William Fichtner) has been called upon by the International Criminal Court’s special crimes unit to track down global felons. Under the watchful eye of ICC Inspector Michel Dorn (Donald Sutherland), Carl reluctantly joins the team.
10 pm Copper (BBC America) | Season 2 premiere: Detective Corcoran must follow the rules of the new Sergeant Donovan (Donal Logue, Sons of Anarchy) as they hunt for missing boys.
10 pm Veep (HBO) | Season finale: With Selina’s future in doubt, the entire staff goes on a frenzied job hunt. (Yep, renewed.)
10 pm Devious Maids (Lifetime) | Series premiere: Four Latina maids work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills. In the pilot episode, after fellow maid Flora (Paula Garces, All My Children) is murdered, newcomer Marisol (Ana Ortiz, Ugly Betty) goes undercover to learn the truth of the crime. (Weigh in on the “controversial” premise.)Follow @rebeccaiannucci
