Off the Wall: 'My Little Pony' marathon, Beyonce at 'Stellar Gospel' awards

Off the Wall can't wait to watch.

 

Kid stuff?

Not necessarily. Grown-ups also get into shows like the cartoon "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" (new season Saturday at 11 a.m., Discovery Family) and the new K-pop musicom "Make It Pop" (weeknights at 7, Nickelodeon). Take a look at nick.com/make-it-pop

 

Just because

Sorry, we're just suckers for some stuff. Like a marathon of "Hollywood Hillbillies" (Saturday 12:30-5:30 p.m., Sunday 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m., Reelz). Or an ex-rapper building a jellyfish tank on "The Vanilla Ice Project" (Saturday at 10 p.m., DIY). Or the mile-high club inquiry of "Mysteries at the Museum" (Friday at 9 p.m., Travel).

 

Big returns

Diana Gabaldon's time-tripping adventure "Outlander" (Saturday night at 9, after marathon 1-9 p.m., Starz) launches the second half of its introductory run. Emmy-laden "Mad Men" (Sunday night at 10, after catchup marathon Saturday 12:30 a.m.- Sunday 10 p.m., AMC) launches the second half of its final season. Two more critical/audience faves offer new episodes: Mike Rowe's unscripted jobfest "Somebody's Gotta Do It" (Thursday at 9 p.m., CNN) and comic Louis C.K.'s soul-baring saga "Louie" (Thursday at 10:30 p.m., FX).

Musical treats

Beyoncé reunites with Destiny's Child at this year's "Stellar Gospel Music Awards" (Sunday at 4 p.m. on WNYW/5, at 8 p.m. on TV One), taped last week. "Sinatra: All or Nothing at All" (Sunday-Monday 8-10 p.m., HBO) celebrates the crooner and cultural icon, through ace biographer Alex Gibney ("Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown"). Long Island rocker Dee Snider is back on "Oprah: Where Are TheyNow?" (Sunday at 9 p.m., OWN). Hunter Hayes launches a new season of "Front and Center" (Saturday at 11:15 p.m., WLIW/21; Sunday at 11 p.m., WNET/13). And accidents will happen in the career of "Elvis Costello: Mystery Dance" (Friday at 9 p.m., Showtime). See some Sinatra at hbo.com

 

Season finales

Wrapping it up: William H. Macy's "Shameless" (Sunday night at 9, after marathon 10 a.m.-9 p.m., Showtime), and movie-based "12 Monkeys" (Friday at 9 p.m., after marathon 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Syfy). Also watch "Monkeys" at syfy.com/12monkeys

 

Big premieresFollowing the "Shameless" season finale is the sneak-preview pilot of "HAPPYish" (Sunday at 10 p.m., Showtime), starring Steve Coogan as a "rebranding" fortysomething, with Bradley Whitford and Kathryn Hahn. (Weekly premiere April 26.) Also, TV movie leads Christina Ricci and Clea DuVall go to series in "The Lizzie Borden Chronicles" (Sunday at 10 p.m., Lifetime), with Jonathan Banks and Cole Hauser.
