Safety first

Crime doesn’t pay if you’re in Jonesboro, Ga., the home of “Prepper Hillbillies,” a new docu-series about a shop that devises creative solutions for warding off trespassers and burglars. I’m guessing the service is slightly more reliable than Jed Clampett’s shotgun. 9 p.m. Saturday, Destination America

Queen of comedy

Is it possible that we’re blessed with the presence of the funniest woman in the history of television? Julia Louis-Dreyfus makes a strong case for herself in another side-splitting season of “Veep,” the series that’s almost as hilarious as an afternoon of C-SPAN. This time around, her character, Selina Meyer, is positioning herself for a presidential run. Suffice it to say, very little goes well. 9:30 p.m. Sunday, HBO

Playing chicken

When he isn’t making sophomoric comedies like “Dads,” Seth Green is churning out clever short cartoons that serve pop culture up on a plate. “Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise” features guest voices from Zac Efron, Alfred Molina and Nathan Fillion. 10:30 p.m. Sunday, Adult Swim
