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!
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.
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.
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.
HBO, Sunday, 9 p.m.
I hope season 2 will be called Cassette.
