‘True Blood’ stays crazy
Season 3 of television’s wildest, weirdest drama series picks up right where we left off with Sookie (Anna Paquin) desperate to track down the kidnapped Bill (Stephen Moyer).
Meanwhile, Andy (Chris Bauer) urges Jason (Ryan Kwanten) to keep his mouth shut about Eggs’ death, which has left poor, tortured Tara (Rutina Wesley) groggy with grief.
The new season also brings an infusion of new blood in the form of several additional characters, including some sexy werewolves. 9 tonight, HBO.
Other best bets:
Sunday: It could be a really big night for Sean Hayes at “The 64th Annual Tony Awards.” Not only is he hosting the gala that shines a spotlight on the best of Broadway, he’s also a potential winner for his role in “Promises, Promises.” 8 p.m., CBS.
Sunday: Another riveting season of “Breaking Bad” comes to an end, and we’re braced for a shocker. The finale has Walt (Bryan Cranston) hatching a “disturbing” plan to provide for his and Jesse’s (Aaron Paul) safety. 10 p.m., AMC.
Sunday: Fans of Christina Aguilera can get a full blast of the pop idol as she headlines new episodes of “Behind the Music” and “Storytellers.” In the former, she talks candidly of the “demons and pain” of her youth and how she battled depression. 9 and 10 p.m., VH1.
Tuesday: “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List” returns for a sixth go-around. In the opener, our caustic redhead preps for a guest-starring role on “Law & Order: SVU” by gleaning advice from Lisa Minnelli, who has appeared on the crime drama herself. 9 p.m., Bravo.
Wednesday: For its seventh season, “Top Chef” heads to Washington, D.C. where it will cook up a batch of challenges presented by local movers and shakers, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and CIA director Leon Panetta. Seventeen new “cheftestants” vie for supremacy. 9 p.m., Bravo.
Wednesday: In the new sitcom, “Hot In Cleveland,” veteran funny women Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves play three fabulous Hollywood pals who improbably wind up in Ohio. There, they move into a home run by a cranky caretaker played by the red-hot Betty White. 10 p.m., TV Land.
Thursday: On “100 Questions,” obsession rears its ugly head as Charlotte (Sophie Winkleman) dates a guy who is so scarily into her that he gets her face tattooed on his chest. 8:30 p.m., NBC.
Friday: On “Friday Night Lights,” poor Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) is struggling to keep his new team together. Quarterback, Vince (Michael B. Jordan), is accused of bringing a gun to school, and Luke (Matt Lauria) misses practice. 8 p.m., NBC.
Saturday: “Dad’s Home” arrives just in time for Father’s Day. It’s a feel-good TV movie starring David James Elliott as a widower who loses his job and becomes a stay-at-home dad, which gives him a totally different perspective on some very important family matters. 9 p.m., Hallmark.
