Wiig-ing out

“Homeland” (8 p.m. Sunday, Showtime) may be losing steam, but the parodies are still going strong. In the season premiere of “The Simpsons” (7 p.m. Sunday, KMSP, Ch. 9), Lisa suspects her dad has been “turned” and calls on a jumpy FBI agent (Kristen Wiig). The episode’s name? “Homerland.”

The Powers that be

Kenny Powers is back in the majors, which means major-league baseball has more than steroids to worry about. “Eastbound & Down” (9 p.m. Sunday, HBO) returns for its fourth and final season with star Danny McBride doing anything and everything to make you laugh.

Exchanging passes

Country music wannabe Jessie James hopes she’ll fare better in reality TV in “Eric & Jessie: Game On” (9 p.m. Sunday, E!), a new show that chronicles her marriage to ex-Gopher and current Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker.
