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

PICK OF THE WEEKEND

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Netflix, Friday, streaming

Some people (mostly ones without jobs) have already finished binging season 2 of the hilarious Tina Fey/Robert Carlock/Ellie Kemper/Tituss Burgess jokefest, so you’ve got a lot of catching up to do!

SERIES FINALE

Childrens Hospital

Adult Swim, 11 p.m.

All hail Dr. Childrens: After 8 years, a pair of Emmys, and countless unlucky patients, Rob Corddry’s left-of-left-field, hospital-set joke machine takes one last spin on the gurney. Given that it started as a medical-procedural spoof before later turning into a genre-hopping goofball showcase, there’s no telling how the series will end.

SUPREME DRAMA

Confirmation

HBO, Saturday, 8 p.m.

Talk about pedigree: Kerry Washington (Scandal!) and Wendell Pierce (The Wire!) star as Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas in this based-on-recent-history TV movie event. For more on the film, read our review — and also check out Essence’s fascinating interview with Hill herself.

SEASON FINALE

Beowulf

Esquire, Saturday, 10 p.m.

Make your high school English teacher proud!

JLD + SNL

Saturday Night Live

NBC, Saturday, 11:30 p.m.

SNL welcomes back Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who used to be a cast member back in the ’80s — which, by the way, she has some thoughts about.

SEASON FINALE

Vinyl

HBO, Sunday, 9 p.m.

I hope season 2 will be called Cassette.
