CATCH-UP MARATHONS Check out previous episodes of "Longmire" (Saturday 2 p.m.- midnight, A&E), before Season 2 starts Monday at 10 p.m., and "The Glades" (Sunday 1-6 p.m.), before Season 3 arrives Monday at 9 p.m. Noah Wyle's first season of "Falling Skies" (Monday 10 a.m.-8 p.m., TNT) leads to next Saturday's Season 2 marathon; Season 3 starts June 9. There's comedy with "Baby Daddy" (Monday 2-7 p.m., ABC Family), launching its second season Wednesday at 8:30 p.m.

SEASON FINALES They're finally winding down, but we've got a few goodies left. Like the backstage-Broadway saga "Smash" (Saturday 9-11, NBC/4).

DRIVING THE LIE Or maybe Sunrise Highway. "XOX, Betsey Johnson" (Sunday at 8 p.m., Style) finds designer Betsey and daughter Lulu setting off on an emotional road trip to their Hamptons home. More at stylenetwork .com/betseyjohnson.

INSECT INVADERS! As the 17-year cicada brood emerges, we get a double dose of insect onslaught. The locusts hour "Swarm Chasers" (Sunday at 8 p.m., Science) is followed by "Cicadas and Invaders 2013" (Sunday at 9 p.m., Science), counting down the world's wildest hordes. Check out Cicada Cam at goo.gl/NvVUr.

HOW MUCH TYLER PERRY CAN YOU STAND? Guess we'll find out this week. Perry is the guest on "Oprah's Next Chapter" (Sunday at 9 p.m., OWN), conveniently timed to promote his two new shows this week. "The Haves and the Have Nots" (Tuesday at 9 and 10 p.m., OWN) is a drama tracking a powerful Savannah family (led by John Schneider) and their hired help (Crystal Fox). "Love Thy Neighbor" (Wednesday at 9 and 9:30 p.m., OWN) is a comedy about a family-run diner, with Patrice Lovely, Kendra C. Johnson and Palmer Williams. More at oprah.com /own.

WEEKS OF THE WEEK Cable's cooking. It's Burger Week in prime time Sunday-Friday on the Cooking Channel, and Grilling Week in prime time Monday-Saturday on Food Network. It's even Meat Week on Destination America this Monday- Saturday.

SOAPS SALUTE Yet another tribute to a daytime icon, this time the late Jeanne Cooper on "The Young and the Restless" (Tuesday at 12:30 p.m., CBS/2). More at goo.gl/MWsB3.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CURSE WORD? Who would ask such a thing? Host and interviewer James Lipton, of course, on "Inside the Actors Studio" (Wednesday 7-9 p.m., Bravo), one of the few survivors from Bravo's old "artsy" days. "Actors Studio" celebrates its 250th episode in new chats with old guests, among them Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lopez, Dave Chappelle and Spike Lee. Plus 19 years worth of memories.

'REAPER' REUNION Find your way to FearNet for the new "Reaper Reunion Special" (Tuesday at 9 p.m.), celebrating The CW humor-horror fave with creators and cast including Bret Harrison and Ray Wise.
