Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Friday, May 11, and Saturday, May 12. All times are Eastern.


Top picks

Master Of None (Netflix, Friday): Aziz Ansari’s acclaimed series returns to Netflix Friday with a set of episodes that are largely innovative and entertaining. “It’s a rich season of television, one that commits to the implied prefix of its title—‘jack of all trades’—without validating the stated suffix,” Erik Adams wrote in his review. Warning: You’re going to have a strong case of Italy-centric wanderlust as soon as you start watching. Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya will check in with Dev. Her reviews will publish every other day.


Regular coverage

Dear White People
RuPaul’s Drag Race (VH1, Friday, 8 p.m.)
Reign (The CW, Friday, 9 p.m.)
Doctor Who (BBC America, Saturday, 9 p.m.)
Class (BBC America, Saturday, 10 p.m.)
Samurai Jack (Adult Swim, Saturday, 11 p.m.)
Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday, 11:29 p.m.)


Wild card

I Love Dick (Amazon, Friday): Transparent’s Jill Soloway has a new series for Amazon based on Chris Kraus’ landmark piece of feminist literature. The series revolves around filmmaker Kraus’ (Kathryn Hahn) obsession with an artist named Dick (Kevin Bacon). (Yes, that explains that title.)
