Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Sunday, August 27. All times are Eastern. Black tie optional.

Top picks

Game Of Thrones (HBO, 9 p.m.): We hope you’ve picked out your finest IKEA furs, because it’s time to close out the seventh season of this fantasy drama. HBO has left us without a synopsis, but we can all safely assume that a lot of blood will be shed in this, the longest episode of the series to date. “The Dragon And The Wolf” of the episode title are rumored to be Daenerys and Jon Snow, but will the finale see them join the incest gang, or will they just go into battle together (wittingly) for the first time? Or will Bran just have another flashback to Jon’s birth—Rhaegar and Lyanna also fit this bill, after all—and remain creepy and useless? And even at 79 minutes, will there really be enough time to address the looming White Walker invasion, Arya and Sansa’s falling out, Cersei’s “delicate” condition, and Viserion’s cool new look? With all this up in the air, we’re more grateful than ever to have Myles McNutt and Brandon Nowalk on review duty.


Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Awesome 10 Year Anniversary Version, Great Job? (Adult Swim, 12 a.m.): Fend off your Thrones hangover by joining John Hugar in celebrating 10 years of Tim And Eric.

Regular coverage

Twin Peaks (Showtime, 8 p.m.)
The Strain (FX, 10 p.m.)
Insecure (HBO, 10:30 p.m.)
Rick And Morty (Adult Swim, 11:30 p.m.)
BoJack Horseman (Netflix): The latest addition to TV Club Classic is the first season of Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s brilliant animated series. Les Chappell will be there for you with daily reviews.

Wild card

Ray Donovan (Showtime, 9 p.m.): Liev Schreiber keeps on fixing things in this Showtime crime drama, so maybe throw him a bone with a watch?
