FANCY PANTS (AND DRESSES)
E! Live From the Red Carpet: The 2016 Met Gala

Houdini & Doyle

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah
Fox, 9 p.m.
By now, you’ve heard about Jon Snow. (You have heard about Jon Snow, right?) But what does Jaime Lannister think about it? Find out tonight, as Noah’s guest will be none other than Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Maybe he’ll even sing Jeremih to Noah.
