Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Sunday, April 15. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Killing Eve (BBC America, 8 p.m.): This scintillating series premiered last week, and we’re already hooked. Jodie Comer may not have impressed us much in Thirteen, but she makes up for it here with her chameleon-like assassin psychopath Villanelle. And it’s been way too long since Sandra Oh was on our TV on the regular, as she plays the titular Eve, a detective trying to track down Villanelle as she becomes increasingly more fascinated by her. Lisa Weidenfeld gave last week’s premiere an A, and is as hooked as the rest of us to see how this intriguing cat-and-mouse series from Phoebe Waller-Bridge will play out.


Regular coverage

Bob’s Burgers (Fox, 7:30 p.m.)
The Simpsons (Fox, 8 p.m.)
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Fox, 8:30 p.m.): Back-to-back new episodes
The Walking Dead (AMC, 9 p.m.): Eighth season finale
Homeland (Showtime, 9 p.m.)

Wild card
