A selective crucial checklist of noteworthy weekend Tv:
The 76th Yearly Golden Globes (Sunday, 8/7c, NBC): Above her illustrious career, Carol Burnett has amassed 5 Golden World wins — and 6 Emmys (but who’s counting?). As the year’s awards season kicks off, Burnett gets the initial receiver of a Tv set existence accomplishment award, named in her honor. (The Cecil B. DeMille Award, for achievement in film, goes to Jeff Bridges.) Even though you could question what took them so lengthy, it is an acknowledgement that Television is at minimum as prestigious as videos these days. And with Killing Eve nominee Sandra Oh and Brooklyn 9-9 winner Andy Samberg web hosting the festivities at the Beverly Hilton, the Tv set nominees are noteworthy for how quite a few 1st-12 months demonstrates are in the mix.

Initially up: the story of Jenny (Emilie Ullerup), who falls for Craig (Kevin McGarry), the very best guy in her sister’s impending nuptials at an ice hotel. Assume substantially melting (of hearts, in any case) right before it’s all about.
60 Minutes (Sunday, 7/6c, CBS): The really hard-hitting newsmagazine returns for the new yr with a report it is billing as “the interview the Egyptian govt does not want you to see.” The subject matter: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who talks with Scott Pelley about how his armed service is doing work with Israel in opposition to terrorists in North Sinai. But Pelley’s tricky questions about El-Sisi’s authoritarian tactics at home certainly rankled, mainly because 60 Minutes stories that the Egyptian ambassador achieved out to say the interview could no for a longer time be aired. Luckily, flexibility of the not-pretend-information push wins out.
In a further section, Anderson Cooper interviews outspoken New York Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, who at 29 is the youngest woman even elected to the U.S. Congress.
Household Person (Sunday, 9/8c, Fox): In a satire of the information biz, Peter (Seth MacFarlane) gets a faux-information contributor to a local Quahog station just after his hair turns white — read through: distinguished — and his antics seize the focus of a distinguished politician.
