TV Worth Watching
"Game of Thrones" (Sunday on HBO at 9 p.m.)
Seems hard to believe, but it's already time to bid farewell to GoT Season 5. This show usually has a strong close, leaving us begging for more. Episode 10, "Mother's Mercy," is likely to be no different. HBO's synopsis tells us "Stannis marches. Dany is surrounded by strangers. Cersei seeks forgiveness. Jon is challenged." GoT has strayed from the books more than ever this season, but many bells are ringing with those descriptions. Worry for everyone and prepare to feel all available emotions.
"CMT Music Awards" (Wednesday on CMT at 10 p.m.)
Erin Andrews and Brittany Snow will co-host the live June 10 show, which will include performances from country artists Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Jake Owen, Sam Hunt and Zac Brown Band.
"Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell" (Saturday on BBC America at 10 p.m.)
