PopWatch Planner: 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' in theaters, more

Posted on

As April comes to a close, Andrew Garfield is once again suiting up as the oh-so-amazing Spider-Man, just as John Oliver suits up for the debut of his new talk show. Elsewhere, The Following‘s season is coming to an end, just as 16 and Pregnant kicks off another year of teens, babies, and more drama than most scripted television could fathom.

Here’s your pop culture schedule for the week:


Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, 11 p.m., HBO

It’s the premiere of John Oliver’s show, guys. And his first guest is the former director of the NSA. That is all.


The Following, 9 p.m., Fox

Season 2 comes to an end with the unlikeliest of alliances: Ryan and Joe work together to save Claire, a.k.a. the woman they both love. So that shouldn’t be awkward (or dangerous) at all.


16 and Pregnant, 11 p.m., MTV

They’re still 16. They’re still pregnant. And we’re still watching.


Chicago PD, 10 p.m., NBC

In night two of the big Chicago FireChicago PD crossover event, the Intelligence Unit tries to track down those responsible for a bombing at Chicago Medical. Spoiler: That bomb might not have been the only one.


iHeartRadio Music Awards, 8 p.m., NBC

If you aren’t a diehard Grey’s Anatomy fan who plans to spend Thursday night getting reacquainted with Preston Burke (Isaiah Washingon), then we’d suggest tuning in to the first ever iHeartRadio Music Awards. Because where else would you hear a new song from Michael Jackson?


The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theaters

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are back, and this time they’re joined by three villains, played by Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, and Jamie Foxx. We’ll save you a seat.


White House Correspondent’s Dinner, 9 p.m., MSNBC

There’s something special about Hollywood glamour mixing with D.C. politics. Joel McHale hosts this year’s gala. Plus, you never know when someone unexpected might crash the thing.


Resurrection, 9 p.m., ABC

The season 1 finale is about what happens when too many of the deceased return to Arcadia — and more importantly, what happens to Bellamy when he asks for outside help.
