BREAKING BAD 10 p.m., AMC
If I put anything else in this slot, I’d be lying. Fans have been waiting for the final episodes of “Breaking Bad” — and dreading them — for a year. There’s nothing disappointing about this season premiere, by the way, which picks up where the last episode ended: with Hank — played with red-hot intensity by Dean Norris — and his bathroom reading.
CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL: COUNTRY’S NIGHT TO ROCK 8 p.m., ABC
This three-hour special recaps the four-day event from June, with all the country performers you’ve come to expect making nice to fans. These folks are booked for almost every country-music TV event ever: Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, and Kelly Clarkson.
DRUNK HISTORY 10 p.m.,
So then [hic] Harry Houdini and Sir Arthur freaking Conan [hic] Doyle were fast friends, but then, um, they disagreed and were just rivals [hic]. This Detroit-based episode re-creates the failed friendship between the two famous men, as well as Ralph Nader’s feud with General Motors.
BROADCHURCH 10 p.m., BBC America
This eight-episode crime series has a few things in common with “The Killing,” except it’s set in the United Kingdom in a small seaside community where it is often sunny. A pair of very different homicide detectives — David Tennant’s Alec is cool and brusque, Olivia Colman’s Ellie is warm and emotional — work together to solve the murder of an 11-year-old boy. It’s a diverting murder mystery.
WEDDING ISLAND 10 p.m., TLC
Are you addicted to wedding porn? If so, then TLC is your homeland, with everything from “Say Yes to the Dress” to “Four Weddings.” This new addition to the genre follows the preparation dramas of Sandy Malone, the only wedding planner on Vieques Island.
THE WHITE QUEEN 8 p.m., Starz
Starz is reairing the series premiere, for those who missed it last Saturday. This show is a must-see for those who love the Philippa Gregory “Cousins’ War” novels on which it is based. Set during the War of the Roses, it’s royal melodrama at its juiciest. And this is a must-not-see for those who don’t like their historical fiction loaded up with romance and untethered from facts. Max Irons (with Rebecca Ferguson), Jeremy’s son, stars as King Edward IV.
THE WHITE QUEEN 9 p.m., Starz
Did you decide to take on this sudsy version of 15th-century history, which plays like an aphrodisiacal “Game of Thrones”? Here’s the second episode of the 10-parter, in which Elizabeth, played by Rebecca Ferguson, begins a long power struggle with James Frain’s Lord Warwick, a.k.a. “The Kingmaker.” I must admit it, your grace: I am hooked.
