PICK OF THE WEEKEND

Spring Broke

Alex Gibney has been everywhere lately. The busy documentarian (The New Yorker Presents, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, Cooked) serves as exec producer on this new doc, which examines how “the spring­ break industry” has grown and changed American culture over the past 50 years.

SEASON FINALE

Second Chance

Fox, Friday, 9 p.m.

The Frankenstein adaptation hasn’t been renewed, so this might actually be the show’s (sorry) final chance.

ANOTHER SEASON FINALE

Black Sails

Starz, Saturday, 9 p.m.

The governor of the Bahamas seeks out the pirates. Also, “governor of the Bahamas” is my definitely my new career goal.

THE KING IS IN

Vinyl

HBO, Sunday, 9 p.m.

Richie Finestra goes to Las Vegas to poach Elvis Presley. If there was ever a way for Richie to kick his many bad habits, going to Vegas to schmooze with Elvis is not it.

MONEY MATTERS

Billions

Bobby Axelrod and Wendy Rhoades do some serious soul-searching. Then again, they are super-rich — can’t they just buy one?

BECAUSE DOWNTON’S GONE

Mr. Selfridge

Fans of either Jeremy Piven or British-set costume dramas, rejoice! The show about a department store kicks off its final season with a two-hour premiere.
