Your daily guide to the most interesting stuff happening on TV and streaming. All times Eastern.

PICK OF THE WEEKEND

The Walking Dead

AMC, 10 p.m.

The zombie drama ends its sixth season with a 90-minute banger that finally delivers the much-anticipated introduction of the one they call Negan, that bat-wielding nemesis who’ll be played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. According to (the admittedly biased) Andrew Lincoln, “This is the greatest entrance ever written.” And thanks to EW’s own Walking Dead scholar Dalton Ross, you can read all about that (and more!) here

SEASON PREMIERE

Banshee

Cinemax, Friday, 10 p.m.

Not sure about this action-filled drama yet? Maybe our critic Jeff Jensen can change your mind

GoT + SNL

Saturday Night Live

NBC, Saturday, 11:35 p.m.

With host Peter Dinklage, musical guest Gwen Stefani, and at least one Game of Thrones sketch, no doubt.

THE VOICE

The Story of God With Morgan Freeman

Nat Geo, Sunday, 9 p.m.

Whoever came up with the idea for a miniseries that sends Morgan Freeman — a.k.a., the voice of God — around the globe to explore world religions deserves to go to Heaven.

SEASON PREMIERE

Call the Midwife

PBS, Sunday, 8 p.m.

A baby is born with no arms or legs? Heavens, call all the midwives!

TROPHY LIFE

2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards

TBS/TNT/TruTV, Sunday, 8 p.m.

The ceremony will include live performances from Justin Bieber and Zayn Malik, as well as an award for “Most Meme-able Moment” — for which (gasp!) Taylor Swift and Kanye West are both nominated.

MORE TROPHIES

51st Academy of Country Music Awards

CBS, Sunday, 8 p.m.

This ceremony, however, looks like it will be very Kanye West-less.
