Say a little prayer

Dionne Warwick gets the Legend Award during the “Soul Train Awards 2013” (7 p.m. Sunday, Centric) with tributes from Gladys Knight, Ronald Isley and Eric Benet. “Fine,” says Warwick, who declared bankruptcy earlier this year. “But can’t you just write me a check instead?”

Hero worship

Anderson Cooper hosts “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute” (7 p.m. Sunday, CNN), which celebrates citizens who have gone beyond the call of duty. Allison Williams of “Girls” will also be on hand, which means honorees will be treated to at least one very awkward sex scene.

Desperately seeking Susan

Susan Sarandon pours herself a cup of tea and looks back at one of England’s most delicious exports in “Return to Downton Abbey” (8 p.m. Sunday, TPT, Ch. 2). The appearance from the Oscar-winning actress can only lead me to believe that she’ll show up in Season 4 as a chain-smoking nun who vows to destroy the Crawley family.
