  • 31comments

What to watch on Friday, May 27.

The weekend is back and it's better than ever. For one thing, it's 50 percent larger this time. But also, the television schedule isn't exactly stacked—you might even have slip outside for a spell!


8pm, NBC
Friday Night Lights
Don't miss this show though, it's the best (duh). Tonight a salacious website reports team secrets during rivalry week, plus Vince's dad undermines his relationship with Coach Taylor. And don't you love how much Billy Riggins is involved this season? This week he and Luke put in some quality time. Quality DREAMBOAT time.

10pm, E!
The Soup
Now that Community's on hiatus, I think it's okay if we return our attentions to Joel McHale doing what originally put him on the map: Hosting this thing.

11pm, VH1
Storytellers: Death Cab for Cutie
It seems like a lot of Death Cab's songs are already lyrically self-explanatory, but for those that aren't, check out tonight's Storytellers. Hopefully Ben Gibbard might finally explain what a lyric like "I need you so much closer" ACTUALLY means. WHO so much closer, and WHY? #notmybusiness

8pm, SCIENCE
How It's Made
Tonight's episode: Whips, automated pizza makers, incense cones, and turbine engines. More like, How's YOUR SATURDAY NIGHT Made, am I right?

What to watch on Saturday, May 28.

9pm, CNBC
The Suze Orman Show
Tonight Suze will give you tips on how to start your summer off right! Because when you think summer, you think Roth IRAs and living trusts. You know, classic summer stuff.

10pm, Science
Oddities
Tonight, lovable weirdos Mike and Evan will come into possession of a throwing knife once owned by Houdini, and also probably yet another horrifying piece of taxidermy. What I'm trying to say is, finish your sandwich BEFORE watching this show.

What to watch on Sunday, May 29.

9pm, HBO
Game of Thrones
Tonight word finally gets back to Khal Drogo about the plot on Daenerys' life, and he doesn't take it well. Fair enough! Plus: Ned confronts Cersei about Jon Arryn's death.

10pm, AMC
The Killing
It's technically only been about a week since Rosie Larsen's death, but that's apparently all the time we need to deem Detective Linden the worst detective ever? Everyone is in agreement about this, right? The one thing she's good at, though, is looking over her shoulder while talking to people, so she's got that going for her. Anyway, tonight the police regroup after the prime suspect turns out to be not-so-prime.

10pm, HBO
Treme
Legendary musician John Hiatt stops by for a performance, plus Janette discovers that Jacques is in trouble. [Tense trumpet.]

8pm, VH1
Mob Wives
The ladies air their grievances, plus the fight at Renee's house continues—except it gets slightly shoutier? Who knows. They all just need to sit down and have some Popsicles or something.

SNEAK PREVIEW, 10:30pm, E!
Ice Loves Coco: Baby Got Backstory
In what's sure to be television's most sensual and elegant new reality show, cameras follow Ice-T and his voluptuous meme/wife Coco as they just live normal, unremarkable lives. Just kidding. Plus, did you see that subtitle? That's just good subtitling right there!
