Daniel Day-Lewis won every award except an Olympics gold medal for his turn in “Lincoln,” but he’s not the only actor to step into the ex-president’s big boots. Raymond Massey earned an Oscar nomination for his work in 1940’s “Abe Lincoln in Illinois,” a laconic film directed by John Cromwell. 9:30 a.m. Friday, TCM
Days of whine and Rosie
First, Rosie O’Donnell makes up with Howard Stern by showing up at his 60th birthday bash. Now she’s appearing as a guest on “The View,” a show she left in 2007 after an infamous on-air feud with Elizabeth Hasselbeck. What’s next? A sea cruise with Donald Trump? 10 a.m. Friday, KSTP, Ch. 5
It wouldn’t be a Beatles tribute without … Katy Perry singing “Yesterday” and an Eurythmics reunion? The line-up for “The Night That Changed America: A Grammys Salute to the Beatles” may be a real head-scratcher, but at least it had the good sense to invite Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to perform together with a little help from their friends, Joe Walsh and Peter Frampton. 7 p.m. Sunday, WCCO, Ch. 4.
After a two-month break, the cast of “The Walking Dead” returns, at least those who weren’t destroyed in the shocking mid-season finale. Actually, shocking may be too strong a word. As we’ve come to learn, everyone both behind and in front of the camera is vulnerable. Now that the prison has been destroyed, where will the gang move next? I hear Santa Fe is nice this time of year. 8 p.m. Sunday, AMC
