Life with father

Celebrate Father’s Day with two very different movies. Start with Michael Keaton’s very funny “Mr. Mom” (8 a.m. Sunday, Encore Family), which screens all day until 6 p.m. Then honor your dad’s inner Atticus Finch with the classic “To Kill a Mockingbird” (7 p.m. Sunday, TCM). Hey, it’s better than giving the old man a tie!

Blood transfusion

Sookie and Jason must face their parents’ killer without the aid of their spiritual leader. “True Blood” (8 p.m. Sunday, HBO) starts its sixth season without creator Alan Ball and fans are eager to see if the series still has teeth.

Hi, Bob!

“The 3rd Annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards” (midnight Sunday, Reelz) shows you just how much respect critics get from Hollywood. The telecast isn’t live, it only includes an hour of highlights and is hosted by Retta, who plays the eighth banana on “Parks & Recreation.” On the plus side, Bob Newhart will be on hand to receive the Icon Award.
