TV Notes: ‘Game of Thrones’ wraps up, but questions remain
“GAME OF THRONES” SEASON FINALE – We’re still recovering from the brutal bloodbath of the so-called “Red Wedding.” So it hardly seems fair that Season 3 of this epic fantasy now rushes to a close. Of course, we have some burning questions: Will the remaining Starks be able to survive? Can the Lannisters retain their grip on the Iron Throne? And what will bratty Joffrey do next to tick us off? 9 p.m. Sunday, HBO.
SUNDAY: Neil Patrick Harris returns to host “The 67th Annual Tony Awards,” honoring the best of Broadway. The musical “Kinky Boots” leads the pack with 13 nominations. 8 p.m., CBS.
SUNDAY: We keep waiting for Chicken Little to show up on “Falling Skies.” Instead, all we get are aliens – or “skitters.” Season 3 begins tonight. 9 p.m., TNT.
MONDAY: Season 2 of “Major Crimes” begins with the slaying of a high profile filmmaker’s pregnant wife. Sounds like a job for Capt. Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) and her elite team of LA police detectives. The show debuts just before the premiere of “King & Maxwell.” 9 p.m., TNT.
MONDAY: Step aside Jon Stewart. It’s time for John Oliver to take over “The Daily Show” as its regular host takes a three-month leave to direct a movie. At least the Brit has high ambitions: His goal is to get Queen Elizabeth as a guest. 11 p.m., Comedy Central.
TUESDAY: Season 4 of “Pretty Little Liars” actually begins a few moments before the end of March’s cliffhanger as we learn what the girls saw in that trunk that was so shocking. The premiere of “Twisted,” a small-town murder mystery, immediately follows. 8 p.m., ABC Family.
WEDNESDAY: As Season 5 of “Royal Pains” opens, Hank (Mark Feuerstein) is antsy to return to work after spending the winter recuperating from brain surgery. His first patient is a woman whose fundraising efforts may be harming her health. 9 p.m., USA.
WEDNESDAY: It’s all about what dudes dig during “Guys Choice 2013,” the awards show that feels like a frat party. Among the offbeat categories: Holy Grail of Hot (“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke). 9 p.m., Spike TV.
THURSDAY: On “Pawn Stars,” the guys get a hot tip on a pair of punching bags once owned by boxing great Rocky Marcianao. Naturally, this inspires Rick to show off his not-so-great boxing skills. 9 p.m., History.
FRIDAY: Season 2 of the Rat Pack-era drama “Magic City” begins with Ike (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) sitting in the clink on trumped-up murder charges. New to the cast are James Caan, Esai Morales, Jamie Harris and Sherilyn Fenn. 9 p.m., Starz.
SATURDAY: On the “AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Mel Brooks,” director Martin Scorsese leads a black-tie celebration of the comedy legend who gave us “Blazing Saddles,” Young Frankenstein” and “The Producers.” 9 p.m., TNT.
