Sunday 
“Westworld" (7 p.m., HBO, Season Premiere) - Season two begins tonight! You can get prepped with my spoiler free preview right here. 

“Into the Badlands” (8 p.m., AMC, Season Premiere) - Sunny and Bajie go undercover on The Widow’s frontlines, seeking passage to a possible cure for Henry. 

Monday 
“The Crossing” (9 p.m., ABC) - Desperate to rescue his son, Oliver, from a potentially lethal situation, Jude reaches out to Emma with a request that could endanger the lives of everyone at the camp. 

“Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special 2018” (9 p.m., CBS, TV Special) - Christina Aguilera joins James Corden for “Carpool Karoake” and Anna Faris, Allison Janmey, Kunal Nayyar, and Iain Armitage join for “Crosswalk the Musical: The Sound of Music.”

“The 100” (8 p.m., The CW, Season Premiere) - Clarke struggles to survive on a desolate, scorched earth. Meanwhile, her friends in space come across a long awaited beacon of hope. 

Wednesday 
“The Handmaid’s Tale” (Hulu, Season Premiere) - The Emmy-winning drama series returns with a second season shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. “Gilead is within you” is a favorite saying of Aunt Lydia. In Season Two, Offred and all our characters will fight against – or succumb to – this dark truth.

“Brockmire” (8 p.m., IFC) - Now calling minor league games in New Orleans, Jim is up for the major leagues in Atlanta. He competes agains Raj, a likable young announcer.

Thursday 
“NFL Draft” (6 p.m., Fox, Sports Special) - Round one from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Broncos have the fifth pick in the first round. Who will they take? I have no idea, I just hope it’s not Baker Mayfield. 

“Quantico” (9 p.m., ABC, Season Premiere) - The season three premiere picks up three years later with Alex living a peaceful, anonymous life in Italy. However, Ryan persuades her to abandon the idyllic existence and help him rescue Shelby from a notorious international arms dealer know only as The Widow. 

Friday 
“Bobby Kennedy for President” (Netflix, Documentary Premiere) - The four-part docuseries utilizes rare and never-before-seen archival footage – much of it digitized for the first time – to transport us to a turbulent and dynamic era, letting Bobby's voice and viewpoint be the guiding force. 

“The Week Of” (Netflix, Film Premiere) - The comedy tells the story of a devoted, middle class father (Adam Sandler) determined to pay for his daughter's wedding despite the prodding of the wealthier father of the groom (Chris Rock). A series of calamities forces the dads (and their families) to come together and endure the longest week of their lives.

Saturday 
“The Hitman’s Bodyguard” (6 p.m., HBO) - A professional bodyguard (Ryan Reynolds) must protect his longtime nemesis, a ruthless hit man (Samuel L. Jackson) who has agreed to testify against a dictator. I'm fulling expecting to hear some Whitney Houston during this film. 

“The Beach House” (7 p.m., Hallmark, Movie Premiere) - When Cara finds her life spinning out of control, she returns to Lowcountry to visit her mother. Before long, the rhythms of the island open her heart as she becomes a bona fide “turtle lady” and repairs the family beach house. And no, I didn’t make any of this up. It’s in the description of the film. Andie MacDowell, Minka Kelly, and Chad Michael Murray star.
