With the House of Representatives sit-in, the U.S. Supreme Court 4-4 “non-decision” blocking some of President Obama’s immigration reform executive orders, and England’s astounding vote to remove itself from the European Union, this is one hell of a news week. And Maher’s guests this week include Paul Begala, Michael Steele, and The Nightly Show host Larry Wilmore.

SERIES PREMIERE: This new USA drama series is an English-language telenovela remake of Telemundo’s La Reina Del Sur, with Alice Braga playing a resourceful and resilient woman who has to stand and survive against a vengeful drug cartel. For a review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.

This one should be a Must-See: For the first time I can remember, Graham has an all-female guest roster occupying his couch – and they’re all stars of the new Ghostbusters reboot.

SERIES PREMIERE: And the unusual summer series keep coming from the broadcast networks. Tonight it’s American Gothic, a title last used for a marvelously dark CBS series starring Gary Cole as a cross between Mayberry Sheriff Andy Taylor and the Devil. This time, also for CBS, it’s a new story, a single-season mystery story. For full reviews, see David Hinckley’s All Along the Watchtower and Ed Bark’s Uncle Barky’s Bytes.

SERIES PREMIERE: This new HBO sports talk series has gone out of its way to promote itself with opinionated, potentially controversial remarks by the show’s host. Now it comes to the hard part – the talk part. Opening guests: Charles Barkley, who’s no stranger at making controversial sports-relared remarks, and Bill Simmons’ fellow Bostonian Ben Affleck.

The filmed bits and sketches still outshine the ones performed in front of a studio audience, and that’s a ratio that has to be overturned for Maya & Marty to be a true variety show, much less a successful one. So here’s hoping, as we get another first-run episode tonight. In addition, many of the Broadway artists who recorded What the World Needs Now, to help The Center in Orlando, will perform it on the show tonight.

Apparently, CBS is televising this series on both Sunday and Monday nights, offering a next-day repeat – at least for now. But that’s good news, even if it’s temporary, because this gives you a second chance to catch the second episode of BrainDead. And that’s the one that summarizes all of the activity from the premiere episode into a jaunty opening theme song, catching you up to date instantly. Don’t miss it – it’s such a fun, enjoyable recap, it feels

SEASON FINALE: Tonight Starz offers a double-header season finale of its Girlfriend Experience series, in which Riley Keough, Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, plays Christine, a woman who finds herself embroiled in the world of high-class escorts. In previous weeks, Christine was drummed from her “vanilla” job as an intern after videos of her having sex with her boss hit the Internet, and she was trying to rebuild and rebound from a very low and vulnerable place. Well, tonight he

Tonight’s episode is called “Battle of the Bastards.” To readers of the original books, that may signal something. To me, it’s just an ironic choice for an episode televised on Father’s Day.

SEASON FINALE: Two episodes are shown back to back as tonight’s season finale – and since it amounts to a battle in which the team of friends bands together to do battle with Dracula, and save Eva Green’s Vanessa, I’d highly recommend watching them both.

Power: Season One

The buzz-worthy Starz crime drama of a boss trying to go legit has been quietly building a dedicated audience and critical acclaim. Power continues the recent Starz tradition (Boss, Magic City) of antiheroes dangerously walking both sides of the line. Once glamorous nightclub owner James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) is out, the old life pulls him back in, Michael Corleone-style. Season One, which sets the storyline, is on sale at Amazon for $8. —Eric Gould
