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

PICK OF THE WEEKEND:

Game of Thrones

HBO, Sunday, 9 p.m.

Fine, we’ll remind you to tune into the sixth season finale of Game of Thrones, which is the series’ longest episode ever. (It clocks in at 69 minutes, so adjust your DVRs accordingly). Miguel Sapochnik, who directed both last week’s bloody “Battle of the Bastards” and this week’s episode, told EW that the finale “feels equally as epic as episode 9…but for completely different reasons.” Check out the photos from the season closer “The Winds of Winter” here.

Disney, Friday, 8 p.m.

This reimagining of the 1987 movie Adventures in Babysitting starring Elisabeth Shue as a harried teenager tasked with protecting three kids in the big city is the channel’s 100th original movie.

Center Stage: On Pointe

Lifetime, Saturday, 8 p.m.

Several original cast members are back in this sequel to 2000’s Center Stage, which finds American Ballet Company taskmaster Jonathan Reeves (Peter Gallagher) forced to incorporate modern dance to keep the troupe afloat. So, he holds a boot camp to audition potential dancers. Enter Bella (Nicole Muñoz), a newbie dancer who may or may not have what it takes. Check out Bella’s dance moves in this exclusive clip.

SERIES DEBUT

Roadies

Showtime, Sunday, 10 p.m.

You can expect some fight-flirting between production managers played Luke Wilson and Carla Gugino. Here’s what Crowe, Wilson, and Gugino had to say about the series
