Game of Thrones Sunday at 9 p.m., HBO
The show returns just in time, because diehard fans were getting all kinds of ookie without it. This season, “Game of Thrones” will feature two really enjoyable new cast members. Ciarán Hinds is on hand as the leader of the Wildlings, who live beyond the wall. He was so perfect as Caesar in “Rome.” And Diana Rigg (pictured) appears as Lady Olenna, Margaery’s grandmother, who is also known as the Queen of Thorns. By the way, don’t try to jump into “Game of Thrones” without watching the first two seasons. You will be lost.
Ben Hur Sunday at 8 p.m., Ovation
Emily VanCamp from “Revenge” plays Esther. Hugh Bonneville, the Earl of Grantham, plays Pontius Pilate. And Kristin Kreuk from “Beauty and the Beast” IS Tizrah. Is there anything more you need to know about this miniseries adaptation of the novel by Lew Wallace? Cheese will be provided, if you need added incentive.
