Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Sunday, April 28. All times are Eastern.


Top pick

Game Of Thrones (HBO, 9 p.m.): One day soon, the world of What’s On Tonight will once again turn its lonely eyes to Killing Eve, or Barry, or Veep, or one of the other deserving series that air on Sunday nights. Today is not that day. For the third week in a row, we’re all under the dominion of the rulers of Westeros: Sansa Stark, the blond, the formerly dead guy, and some other people.

In another week, perhaps the cat-and-mouse game that Eve and Villanelle are playing could knock this series of its poky throne. Maybe Jonah’s Presidential run could do it. Like any of you, we find ourselves unable to resist the charms of North Hollywood Henry. But for this week, like Ser Brienne Of Tarth, we must stand our ground, because Winterfell is under siege, and forecasters predict a bloodbath.

Might want to adjust the brightness on your screen for this one; the trailer is dark and presumably full of terrors, if we could see it.

We’re safely tucked away in the crypt, and our newbies and experts reviews will be up just as soon as we check the Mailbag Of Thrones and update the dead pool.

Regular coverage

The Simpsons (Fox, 8 p.m.)
Killing Eve (BBC America and AMC, 8 p.m.)
Supergirl (The CW, 8 p.m.)
American Gods (Starz, 8 p.m.): second-season finale
Bob’s Burgers (Fox, 8:30 p.m.)
Billions (Showtime, 9 p.m.)
Barry (HBO, 10:25 p.m.)
Veep (HBO, 11 p.m)


Wild card

The Red Line (CBS, 8 p.m. and 9 p.m., limited series premiere): Executive-produced by Ava DuVernay and Greg Berlanti, this series follows a man (Noah Wyle) and his daughter (Aliyah Royale) as they struggle to grieve and seek justice when their husband/father is fatally shot by a Chicago cop (Noel Fisher). It’s not an easy watch, but the performances make it worth checking out, particularly Wyle’s and Royale’s.
