Veep: Season 1
Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars as the hapless vice president in the hysterical West Wing/Arrested Development/Curb Your Enthusiasm mashup that almost makes you feel bad for Joe Biden. Almost—let’s not get carried away here. (HBO)

The Borgias: Season 2
The Sexy Pope (Jeremy Irons) returns for another season of Renaissance-era power struggles, intrigue, violence and decadence that’s actually more historically accurate than most of what’s on the History Channel currently. (Paramount)

When a corporate diva-bitch (Lauren Holly) becomes embroiled in a Detroit sex-trafficking ring posing as a modeling agency, only her tyrannized assistant (Kaylee DeFer) can rescue her. Or just find a new, nicer boss. Yeah, go with that. (Asylum)

Dose of Reality
When a strange woman (Fairuza Balk) is found beaten up in the cleanest bar bathroom ever captured on film, it’s up to the bartender and the owner to figure which of them did it, as well as why the owner’s around at closing time. (Monarch)

Parental Guidance
The grandparents (Billy Crystal, Bette Midler) agree to baby-sit the grandkids while their parents (Marisa Tomei, Tom Everett Scott) go to work; poop jokes, Valuable Lessons and the ultimate test of my Marisa Tomei movie loyalty ensue. (Fox)
