TV picks for June 3:  "Inside Amy Schumer,” "The Big Band Years,” "Famous in 12”

  • Updated: June 2, 2014 - 2:52 PM

Glenn Miller is among those celebrated in “The Big Band Years.”

And the band played on

Peter Marshall pays tribute to Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, Cab Calloway and others in “The Big Band Years.” Unfortunately, most of these icons didn’t live long enough to have Marshall lead them through “Hollywood Squares.” 7 p.m. TPT, Ch. 2

Almost famous

How powerful is TMZ? We’re about to find out. In “Famous in 12,” the celebrity-gossip center is trying to turn an unknown family into stars in less than a dozen weeks. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are all fair game. Dating a Kardashian is not. 7 p.m. WUCW, Ch. 23

Let’s talk about sex

“Inside Amy Schumer” wraps up its very funny second season with more outrageous sketches about sex. Schumer has mastered the art of dirty talk, but I’d like to see her stretch out and tackle more subjects. Maybe her upcoming movie with Judd Apatow will prove she’s got more than one card to play. 9:30 p.m., Comedy Central
