Doctor Who

On TV this weekend: Doctor Who‘s secret is revealed, Orphan Black has a civil war on its hands, a new class enters the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Ben Affleck is Mr. Saturday Night, a Family Guy moonlights on The Simpsons (and both of those shows end their seasons) and The Cleveland Show has its swan song. Here are 15 programs to keep on your radar.

SATURDAY, MAY 18

8 pm Doctor Who (BBC America) | Season finale: The Doctor’s secret is discovered. (If you want a hint about what he’s hiding, check this out.) (Next up: a 50th anniversary special that will air later this year.)

9 pm 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony (HBO) | Artists including Usher, Don Henley, John Mayer, Public Enemy, Carole King and Jennifer Hudson perform to honor this year’s class – which includes Heart and Quincy Jones — during the three-hour event.

9 pm Orphan Black (BBC America) | Sarah’s actions pit the Orphans against each other.

10 pm 48 Hours (CBS) | The news journal investigates gang and drug wars in Chicago.

11:30 pm Saturday Night Live (NBC) | Season finale: Argo star/director Ben Affleck hosts with musical guest Kanye West. (SNL will be back next season, minus at least one of its Not Ready for Primetime Players.)

SUNDAY, MAY 19

7 pm The Cleveland Show (Fox) | Back-to-back season (series?) finale: Dr. Fist reveals that Freight Train’s newly nice nature may be the result of dementia, and the kids’ schedules overwhelm Cleveland and Donna. (Unofficially cancelled.)

8 pm The 2013 Billboard Music Awards (ABC) | Performers at the three-hour ceremony include Pitbull, Christina Aguilera, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and Prince.

The Simpsons8 pm The Simpsons (Fox) | Back-to-back season finale: If the guy Marge meets online tonight sounds like Family Guy‘s Peter Griffin (or Stewie, Brian or Quagmire), it’s because Seth MacFarlane provides his voice. (Yep, renewed.)

9 pm All-Star Celebrity Apprentice (NBC) | Two-hour season finale: Trace and Penn put the finishing touches on their charity event, and then The Donald and his hair fires one of them.

9 pm ACM Presents: Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night (CBS) | Two hours: The country-music star hosts an evening of performances by his wife Faith Hill, Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Ne-Yo and Pitbull, among others.

9 pm North America (Discovery) | Miniseries premiere: Tom Selleck (Blue Bloods) narrates this two-hour foray into “the incredible array of wildlife that lives in our own backyard.” (Side note: The New Jersey Meadowlands are in my backyard, and I’m fairly certain I don’t want to know what’s living there.)

9 pm Game of Thrones (HBO) | King’s Landing hosts a wedding, and Daenerys meets the Titan’s Bastard.

9 pm Mr. Selfridge (PBS) | Two-hour season finale: Tragedy strikes on the day polar explorer Sir Earnest Shackleton comes to the store. (British network ITV has renewed the series for a second season; no word yet on when/if it will debut in the U.S.)

9 pm Family Guy (Fox) | Back-to-back season finale: A time machine malfunction creates big problems for Stewie and Brian in Vegas, and the Griffins get tossed from the posh Barrington Country Club. (Yep, renewed.)

10 pm Mad Men (AMC) | Don is disrupted by a surprise visitor. Peggy looks for inspiration. (Maybe she’ll find it in Dream Ted’s smoking jacket?)
