FRIDAY

RuPaul’s Drag Race

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on VH1

Season Premiere

If the electrifying season 12 premiere is any indication, it’s a unanimous, boots-the-house-down-ticket vote in favor of RuPaul’s Drag Race ruling your life for the next three months. Mama Ru wants you to get your life as a new cast of queens spars for the title across politically-themed challenges and musical death-matches overseen by a sickening roster of guest judges including Nicki Minaj, Robyn, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Whoopi Goldberg, and more. Forget the founding fathers, it’s all about these mothatucking mamas from here on out. —Joey Nolfi

If you’ve seen the Netflix extravaganza, then SNL‘s musical guest will be a familiar face: Talking Heads’ David Byrne. Come on by to see if we’ll get a Diner Lobster sequel, and if Byrne will bring the kids on stage to relive the glory of “Pay Attention!” —Omar Sanchez

Doctor Who

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on BBC America

Season Finale

Last week’s first half of the Doctor Who two-part season finale saw Jodie Whittaker’s time traveler, her friends, and the remnants of humanity facing off against the Cybermen. Also? In the show’s closing seconds, the return of Sacha Dewan’s villainous Master. Dewan took time out to tease this Sunday’s season-closer. “That really important statement that I said to the Doctor, which is ‘Everything you think you know is a lie’ — hopefully that question will be answered,” says the actor. “But more answers lead to more questions. The Master has so many different sides, but you’re going to see a side to him that you’ve not seen before, and you’re going to see a side to the Doctor that you’ve not seen before either. Yes, it’s pretty chaotic and action-packed, in one sense. It’s also incredibly emotional as well.” —Clark Collis

Dispatches From Elsewhere

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 10 p.m. on AMC

Series Debut

Only a few years ago, Jason Segel was a rising comedy superstar, between hits like How I Met Your Mother and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. But the 40-year-old actor felt like he outgrew “stunted adolescence” and “being devastated about a girl,” so a bit of “self-exploration” found him creating, writing, directing, and starring in AMC’s new spooky adventure series Dispatches From Elsewhere. Segel, Sally Field, André Benjamin, and Eve Lindley play four strangers who yearn for something more, until they are brought together by a “puzzle hiding just behind the veil of everyday life” and the game’s enigmatic frontman (Richard E. Grant). Segel doesn’t want to reveal too much about the mystery at the center of his story, although he’s willing to share the connection to a familiar tale. “What the show is about, parallel to that mystery, is four people in states of isolation and existential crisis on these character journeys, a lot like The Wizard of Oz.” he told EW. “And the journey along the yellow brick road is just as important as reaching Oz.” —Derek Lawrence
