Spend Sunday night with the fierce ladies of Claws

Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Sunday, June 11. All times are Eastern.

Top picks

Claws (TNT, 9 p.m.): This new series looks at the lives of five women who run a Central Florida nail salon as a front for money laundering, offering what TNT calls “a midnight-dark, wickedly funny meditation on female badness.” The promos are certainly high-octane, and the cast includes standouts like Niecy Nash, Carrie Preston, and Judy Reyes, so this looks like a fun summer show to check out. Even it makes our own week-old manicure look horribly inadequate.

70th Annual Tony Awards (CBS, 9 p.m.): This awards show, unlike some we could mention, features performers used to appearing on stage, offering show-stopping numbers from shows lighting up Broadway right now, like Dear Evan Hansen and Groundhog Day The Musical. Plus, this year Kevin Spacey is hosting, and if this promo is any indication, that Christopher Walken imitation he loves so much is bound to show up at least once. Self described theater kid Esther Zuckerman can’t wait.

Regular coverage

Orange Is The New Black (Netflix)
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix)
Bob’s Burgers (Fox, 8:30 p.m.): Some sort of “special presentation,” since the show already has its season finale.
Twin Peaks (Showtime, 9 p.m.)
American Gods (Starz, 9 p.m.)
Fear The Walking Dead (AMC, 9 p.m.)
Silicon Valley (HBO, 10 p.m.)
I’m Dying Up Here (Showtime, 10 p.m.)
Veep (HBO, 10:30 p.m.)

Wild card

Menendez: Blood Brothers (Lifetime, 8 p.m.): This is a wild card, all right. You may not have realized this, but Courtney Love has been bolstering up her acting career again, with appearances on shows like Empire, Sons Of Anarchy, and Revenge (where she apparently played a character called “White Gold”—looks like we picked the wrong time to stop watching that show). This helps explain her starring appearance in this Lifetime movie about the Menendez killings as Kitty Menendez, mother of the two Beverly Hills sons who murdered their parents with a shotgun in in 1989. This movie appears to be decidedly on Lyle and Erik’s side, saying that it will “reveal new details about the extreme abuse the brothers endured at their father’s hands, all while their mother looked the other way.” Whatever side you’re on, we’re certain that Love will ham this up spectacularly.
