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

PICK OF THE WEEKEND

Bloodline

Netflix, Friday, streaming

If you binged the first season of this Kyle Chandler-starring Florida-centric family drama, season 2 has been a long time coming. But the wait is over — the new episodes are now available. But if for some reason you can’t drop everything you’re doing to watch 12 hours of television right now, feel free to whet your appetite with an exclusive new clip of the Rayburn clan being all Rayburn-y.

COUNTRY MATTERS

American Masters: The Highwaymen

PBS, Friday, streaming, 9 p.m.

A documentary on the seminal country supergroup that consisted of the guitar-wielding greats Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, and Chris Gaines. (Okay, fine, one of those people isn’t really in the band, or even a real person.)

SEASON PREMIERE

Chef’s Table

Netflix, Friday, streaming

Can’t get out of town for the weekend? Never fear: For its second season, this food-centric docuseries will take you around the globe to profile the renowned chefs of restaurants around Brazil, Mexico, Slovenia, and, of course, the U.S.

WILD WILD WEST

Lost in the West

Nickelodeon, Saturday, 8 p.m.

The first installment of a three-part movie about a pair of stepbrothers who get transported back to 1885. Once there, the duo will ride horses, wear cowboy hats, and try not to get cholera. (Part two will air Sunday night, while part three will arrive Monday.)

DCOM

Brink!

Disney Channel, Sunday, 11:20 a.m.

The Disney Channel is running a DCOM marathon all Memorial Day weekend long, with four straight days of some of its most beloved classics. For my money, Brink! — the exciting and uplifting tale of a rollerblader who just wants to rollerblade, man, and also sponsors are bad! — is the best of them all. It’s a film that embodies the virtues that all DCOMs should aspire to have. It is the Citizen Kane of its genre, so be sure to savor this revival while you can.

SEASON FINALE

The Carmichael Show

NBC, Sunday, 8 p.m.

Friday’s episode is titled “President Trump,” but it has yet to be endorsed by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

NINJAS

American Ninja Warrior: All Stars

NBC, Sunday, 9 p.m.

The competition series airs its first-ever all-star special. The night’s challenges will include the Mega Wall, the Giant Peg Board, the 40-Foot Salmon Ladder, the Flying Shelf Grab, the Jump Hang, and the Sore Muscles in the Morning.

SEASON PREMIERE

Celebrity Food Fight

Food, Sunday, 10 p.m.

Hosted by Andy Richter, the show has a pretty simple premise: Celebrity guests (think Andy Dick, Melissa Rivers, Coolio) are paired with chefs and play food-related games (taste tests, etc) against other duos. The winning team gets the coveted Golden Plate trophy, while the losers are tasked with washing the dirty dishes. “You’d be surprised by how many people took this very seriously,” the ever-modest Richter tells EW. And not everybody is a gracious loser, he adds: “One person dropped a few dishes and stated that their strategy was ‘The more I break, the less I have to wash.’” Spoiler: It was one of the people named above.
