What to Watch This Weekend: The Finales of Hawaii Five-0, OUAT, Blue Bloods, and Revenge and the Premieres of Penny Dreadful and Rosemary's Baby


What to watch on Friday, May 9...


8pm, The CW
Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Guest-comic Keegan-Michael Key returns to the panel, and in solidarity, the regulars all append cool hyphenates to their first names for the week.


9pm, NBC
Grimm
While Nick and Hank probe a double homicide with ties to the Verrat, Trubel encounters an enigmatic father-and-son duo that has arrived with a special delivery for “the Portland Grimm” (they would’ve gotten to town sooner, but they went to Maine first by accident, and don’t even ask it was a whole big thing). Meanwhile in “The Inheritance,” Adalind’s behavior triggers Renard’s Spidey-sense.


SEASON 4 FINALE, 9pm, CBS
Hawaii Five-0
“'O ka Pili 'Ohana ka 'Oi” (“Family Comes First”) finds Grover compelled to aid a big-time heist after his daughter is abducted by an old foe. In other dastardly developments, Wo Fat busts out of the hoosegow and makes a beeline for Oahu.


9pm, The CW
Hart of Dixie
In “Stuck,” Wade warns Zoe not to aid his dad’s romantic life, and that certainly sounds like advice Zoe will follow, doesn’t it? Around BlueBell, Lemon’s efforts to boost Fancie’s profile flounder, and Lavon and George square off with Mayor Gainey in a matter before the city comptroller. I know, I know—another city comptroller plot on The CW? Geez, give it a rest already, guys.


10pm, NBC
Hannibal
The team learns the facts behind Freddie’s disappearance in “Ko No Mono,” and whether or not Will is just bluffing, I think his listening to the theme from Superfly on repeat over and over is laying it on a bit thick. Meanwhile, Mason suspects Margot of plotting against him, because Mama Verger didn’t raise any fools (creepy sadistic weirdos, yes; fools, no).


10pm, Syfy
Continuum
In "Wasted Minute," Kiera and an emotionally off-balance Carlos race to thwart Liber8’s latest plot—a potentially catastrophic chemical attack on the city.


SEASON 4 FINALE, 10pm, CBS
Blue Bloods
Danny crosses a line when he looks into a verboten case in “Exiles,” landing him on modified duty. No, I said duty. Stop snickering. Honestly, you people.

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING TONIGHT?


What to watch on Saturday, May 10...


SEASON 4 FINALE, 10am & 10:30am, The Hub
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
A new threat looms over Equestria in “Twilight’s Kingdom, Parts 1 & 2,” as they tend to do come season premiere or finale time. But when Princess Celestia calls on Discord for help, Twilight Sparkle is left to wonder what role she and her friends must play in defending the realm.


9pm, Starz
Da Vinci’s Demons
While Leonardo and Riario stare death square in the kisser in “The Fall from Heaven,” Zoroaster and Nico brainstorm a way out of their own predicament. Elsewhere, Lorenzo waits for his audience with the King of Naples, who has given him a window of 8am to 6pm because everyone knows the King of Naples was the cable repair guy of Renaissance Europe monarchs.


9pm, BBC America
Orphan Black
Sarah returns to home base in “Governed as It Were By Chance,” teaming with Cosima to research the roots of the clone experiment—and unearthing troubling new details about Mrs. S. Meanwhile, Helena settles in swimmingly at the Prolethean compound.


SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 10pm, BBC America
In the Flesh
Kieren scrimps and saves in hopes of quitting Roarton and starting fresh—well, as fresh as a Partially Deceased Sufferer can get, I suppose. But his grand ambitions are complicated when Victus foments tension between the living and the not-quite, sparking a grisly response from the Undead Liberation Army.


11:30pm, NBC
Saturday Night Live
Host Charlize Theron makes her second appearance, while musical guest The Black Keys make their third. This can only be more grist for the mill for the scads of conspiracy theorists inspired by The Number 23.

What to watch on Sunday, May 11...


7pm, Fox
Bob’s Burgers
“Wharf House (or How Bob Saves/Destroys the Town, Part 1)” finds Bob and Felix in cahoots to persuade Mr. Fischoeder to unload Wonder Wharf. Tina’s on a mission of her own, chaining herself to the wharf’s carousel to protest its impending demolition.


SEASON 3 FINALE, 8pm, ABC
Once Upon a Time
You’re cordially invited to the coronation of Mary Margaret and David’s newborn lad in “Snow Drifts” and “There’s No Place Like Home.” If you are unable to attend—for instance, because you have been sucked backwards through Zelena’s time portal like Emma and Hook, who must Marty McFly their way home without disrupting the past—kindly RSVP in the negative.


8pm, PBS
Call the Midwife
Upon returning from the Mother House, Jenny is seconded to The London, where she detects worrisome signs beneath the facility’s polished surface. Meanwhile, Sister Julienne ballasts an unstable new mother, Chummy receives devastating news from home, Trixie is stood up by Tom, and Dr. Turner and Shelagh unearth an unpleasant surprise during their adoption process.


8:30pm, Fox

Cleveland returns from the Island of Failed Sitcom Spin-off Stars in “He’s Bla-ack!” But no sooner has he settled back into Quahog than he’s barred from seeing Peter because of Lois and Donna’s quarrel over parenting.


MINISERIES PREMIERE, 9pm, NBC
Rosemary’s Baby
In this adaptation of the 1967 novel, Zoe Saldana and Patrick J. Adams star as young marrieds whose fresh start in Paris is soon bedeviled by… well, by the Devil. “Night 1” finds the couple settling into their tony new digs and meeting their hospitable neighbors, but the building’s spooky past looms large. (Part 2 airs Thursday, May 15, at 9pm.)


9pm, HBO
Game of Thrones
With his fate all but sealed, Tyrion makes one more stand against Tywin in “The Laws of God and Men.” On Dragonstone, Stannis and Davos prepare to execute a new strategy. Across the Narrow Sea, Dany sets to hearing from her new subjects. And at Winterfell, Yara comes calling for her brother (or what’s left of him).


9pm, CBS
The Good Wife
A client’s indecorous public comments put a megabucks merger at risk in “The One Percent,” and naturally it falls to Alicia to clean up the mess. At Lockhart Gardner, a pharma class action pits Diane and Louis against one another, while at the governor’s office, Eli discovers that Alicia and Peter have set their relationship status to “it’s complicated.”


9pm, Showtime
Nurse Jackie
Jackie tries to stay a step ahead as Frank scours her house for drugs in “Rag and Bone.” In less surreptitious shenanigans, Zoey confronts a discontent Prentiss, and Mia and Kevin share an announcement.


9:30pm, Showtime
Californication
While Levon and Nikki share a night in “Getting the Poison Out,” Karen, Hank, and Marcy are stuck in the considerably less pleasant company of Nikki’s skeevy pal. Elsewhere, Charlie finds himself out of his depth with a new client.


SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, Showtime
Penny Dreadful
Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Billie Piper and Josh Hartnett are among the cast of this supernatural horror series set in Victorian London. The opener, “Night Work,” finds an intrepid explorer, an American marksman, and a mad scientist from Geneva teaming to investigate a disappearance.


SEASON 3 FINALE, 10pm, ABC
Revenge
Emily and Victoria come out guns blazing in “Execution.” No one and nothing may be left standing when the smoke clears, possibly including a fourth season of the show.


10pm, AMC
Mad Men
A visitor from Don’s past pays a call in “The Runaways,” so lay your bets now on which ex-Bobby Draper is back for revenge. Around SC&P, Peggy lends Ginsberg a hand, Stan embarrasses a bigwig, and Harry learns he has a new ally in the office who is definitely not just a mop wearing sunglasses and a necktie that he’s taken to calling “Hank,” no sir.


10pm, HBO
Silicon Valley
Pied Piper enlists a hacker’s help in “Third Party Insourcing,” setting Richard on edge. Meanwhile, Jared needs Peter Gregory’s John Hancock, and Gilfoyle’s girlfriend receives plenty of notice around the incubator.


10:30pm, HBO
Veep
“Detroit” sends the Veep to an economic summit in the Motor City, where her coterie is quickly irritated by her personal trainer. Elsewhere, Jonah and Mike hash out a possible photo op for Selina and Maddox, and Catherine runs interference on a protestor.

I hate these stupid videos that you now have on your site. I would be happy enough if they didn't automatically play and actually waited for a user to press play first.
