Sunday 
“Wayne’s World” (6 p.m., Starz Comedy) - Celebrate the 25th anniversary of this iconic SNL skit turned film by watching it today. Party on Wayne, party on Garth!

“National Memorial Day Concert” (7 p.m., PBS) - Laurence Fishburne and Joe Mantegna host the annual salute to America’s military heroes. Performers include Renee Fleming, Scotty McCreery, and the National Symphony Orchestra. 

Monday 
“The Bachelorette” (7 p.m., ABC) - Rachel takes eight lucky guys to a backyard barbecue in Mailbu where Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis help with a husband material obstacle course. I expect the Fear of Commitment Wall will be HUGE.    

“Still Star-Crossed” (9 p.m., ABC, Series Premiere) - Super show runner Shonda Rhimes takes a crack at a Shakespearean classic and gives it a modern twist. This drama about the Montagues and the Capulets follows the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet.  

Tuesday
“House of Cards” (Netflix, Season Premiere) - In season five Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his wife Claire (Robin Wright), whose characters have always been each other’s strongest allies, start showing cracks in their relationship. 

 “The Americans” (8 p.m., FX, Season Finale) - Philip and Elizabeth race against the clock as a life hangs in the balance, while Stan faces an uncertain future. 

Wednesday 
“The F Word With Gordon Ramsay” (8 p.m., Fox, Series Premiere) - Based on his U.K. series, each episode will combine good food and good cooking with Ramsay’s passion, energy and humor. Screeners weren’t available to press but I do know at some point Gordon dresses up in a fat suit. No joke. 

“The Carmichael Show” (8 p.m., NBC, Season Premiere) - The season three opener tackles a serious topic. A family debate about consent ensues after Maxine’s friend posts about her assault on social media. 

Thursday 
“Nashville” (7 p.m., CMT, Mid-Season Premiere) - Deacon tries to help Daphne pass her history class, but Daphne isn’t motivated. Meanwhile, Juliette gives Maddie unsolicited advice about a song. 

“Game 1 of the NBA Finals” (7 p.m., ABC) - The Cavaliers/Warriors trilogy begins its third phase tonight. Will it be “Return of the Jedi” or “Revenge of the Sith?” Here’s hoping it’s the former. 

Friday 
“House Hunters International” (8:30 p.m., HGTV) - A California couple land teaching jobs in Casablanca, Morocco. As a long time fan of the movie “Casablanca” yet with not actual experience with what it looks like, I’ll be checking this out. 

“The 76th Annual Peabody Awards” (9 p.m., PBS) - Rashida Jones hosts the annual event which honors powerful, enlightening and invigorating stories in TV, radio and digital media. Norman Lear and ITVS are also saluted. 

Saturday 
“Hatfields & McCoys” (3:35 p.m., Starz) - Watch the late, great Bill Paxton in one of his best roles as Starz runs the entire three part “Hatfields & McCoys” mini-series in a back-to-back-to-back marathon starting this afternoon. Kevin Costner and Tom Berenger also star. 

“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” (6 p.m., HBO) - A boy follows a series of clues that lead him to a mysterious orphanage on a remote Welsh island. There he discovers a community of children with unusual abilities and learns he is destined to protect them. See, your kids aren’t so weird after all.
