Girls just want to have fun

Lena Dunham may indeed be “the voice of her generation,” as she stated not so eloquently in the first season of “Girls,” but that doesn’t mean I want to a split an ice-cream sundae with her character anytime soon. Her series resumes this weekend, and, if anything, the four primary female leads are even less likable than when we met them, particularly Marnie (Allison Williams), who takes Bridezilla to a whole new level in nuptials that haven’t been this doomed since Dennis Rodman tied the knot with Carmen Electra. Like the rest of her gal pals — and I use that term loosely since they never seem to offer any genuine form of friendship to one another — she’s more obsessed with self-satisfaction than sisterhood. 9 p.m. Sunday, HBO


You wouldn’t normally get cast members of iconic series such as “Cheers,” “Friends” and “Will and Grace” to reunite unless they were guaranteed a truckload of awards, but they’re all on hand for “Must-See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows,” which honors the most successful sitcom director of all time. 8 p.m. Sunday, KARE, Ch. 11

Graduate course

Those who caught PBS’ recent documentary on Mike Nichols may think they can afford to skip “Becoming Mike Nichols.” Don’t. The film, based solely on the director’s interviews with Jack O’Brien (the last Nichols would do before his death in late 2014), includes some of the same anecdotes, but there are plenty of fresh goodies, including the tale of how Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson” became part of “The Graduate” soundtrack. 8 p.m. Monday, HBO

The fugitive

Alfred Hitchcock set the template for thrillers in which the wrong man is accused, and the Brits haven’t looked back since. “Prey,” a dour six-part miniseries, plays out in that tradition as a detective (John Simm) goes on the run after his wife is found dead. Creator Chris Lunt does a nice job of showing the trials and tribulations of U.K. cops, even if they’re not being chased for murder. 9 p.m. Thursday, BBC America
