TO WATCH

SEASON PREMIERE Graceland, 10 p.m., USA The second season finds Mike back at Graceland — the frat house for Feds — after the cartel put out a hit on him. That's bound to change the mood in the house.

Father's Day: He'd probably rather be fishing or golfing, but dad gets in free with a paid kids admission at many local attractions this weekend, including MOSI, the Florida Aquarium and Lowry Park Zoo.
