On TV this weekend, June 7-9

On TV tonight


Killing Lincoln, 8 p.m., NatGeo Tom Hanks narrates a dramatization of the events surrounding Abraham Lincoln's assassination. Not to spoil it, but John Wilkes Booth did it.

Da Vinci's Demons, 9 p.m., Starz Leonardo tries to save the Medicis from the Pazzis' murder schemes. Because if they die, who else will buy Leo's paintings?

Tanked, 9 p.m., Animal Planet A mall in Annapolis, Md., wants a sailboat fish tank. So, of course, the guys start looking at battleships for ideas. We do hope they know battleships don't have sails.

Mystery Diners, 10 p.m., Food The manager of a New Orleans seafood restaurant wants to be a comedian. We bet the health inspection is no laughing matter.


The Good Mother, 8 p.m., Lifetime When your teenager ends up dead and you may be responsible, you just may not qualify for the title of mother of the year. Just putting that out there.

SERIES PREMIERE Sam & Cat, 8 p.m., Nickelodeon Victorious and iCarly personalities combine forces to make a super-ultra-megazord of tween sitcoms. It's about this age you quit asking your kids what they're watching, anyway.

MINISERIES FINALE In The Flesh, 10 p.m., BBC America Do you think this will break away from zombie tropes and have a happy ending? Well, it is a British production …


The 67th Annual Tony Awards, 8 p.m., CBS Kinky Boots may win an armload of awards. It's about as sure a thing as having Neil Patrick Harris host for a fifth time after tonight.

SEASON PREMIERE Insane Coaster Wars: World Domination, 8:30 p.m., Travel In case you wanted to travel specifically to ride a roller coaster. The tilt-a-whirl at the state fair just isn't cutting it.

SEASON PREMIERE Falling Skies, 9 p.m., TNT There may be a spy in the ranks, which is a problem. And since it's the season premiere, the crew actually will put some bucks into this episode so we can see more creepy crawlies.

SEASON FINALE Game of Thrones, 9 p.m., HBO Sure, you're all angry about last week's Red Wedding episode. Unless you actually read what happens in the books, that is. Then you were angry already.
