Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Sunday, July 1. All times are Eastern.


Top pick

Power (Starz, 8 p.m.): The Starz crime series focuses on Omari Hardwick as James “Ghost” St. Patrick, leading a double life as a nightclub owner and a drug kingpin. But after tragedy struck last season, Ghost now creates “a dangerous alliance with his former drug partner and brother-in-arms Tommy Egan and mortal enemy Kanan Stark. As Ghost mourns the death of his daughter Raina, he searches for vengeance and throws himself into his work, reaching new, professional heights. But with this newfound publicity, his quest for blood threatens to dismantle his legitimate legacy.” We’ll see how this tenuous alliance plays out over the inevitably tension-filled 10 episodes of season five.

Regular coverage

Pose (FX, 9 p.m.) 
The Affair (Showtime, 9 p.m.)
Preacher (AMC, 10 p.m.)

Wild card

Nailed It! (Netflix): The fun reality series is back for another season on Netflix, as enthusiastic but inexperienced chefs try to pull off elaborate fondant-filled edible art sculptures. But everyone—contestants and judges alike—is usually good-natured about it, even though one contestant this season apparently served a cake that used salt instead of sugar.
