Weekend TV: 'Insecure,' 'Video Music Awards'

Wynonna Earp
SyFy, Friday, 10 ET/PT

The delightful series concludes its second season tonight. Wynonna Earp is a fun romp that balances its supernatural elements with strong character drama, and the back half of the second season has been particularly compelling. In the finale, Wynonna, the mystically-gifted descendant of Wyatt Earp, is back after an ill-advised wish wiped her from existence in last week’s episode. Now that’s she’s returned to the town of Purgatory, she has to deal with the Widows, demonic villains who just resurrected their even more demonic husband. And she just went into labor.

Issa Rae’s uproarious comedy is pushed back a bit Sunday, thanks to the super-sized Game of Thrones season finale. Issa finds herself without a car, Molly (Yvonne Orji) is worried about a friendship and Lawrence (Jay Ellis) is hit with some stark truths when he tries to pitch his app. 

MTV Video Music Awards

The wild, irreverent and colorful awards ceremony returns, with Katy Perry as host and performer.  Kendrick Lamar leads the nominees with eight for his video HUMBLE. Perry and The Weeknd tied for second with five apiece. Fans will likely hear many chart-topping tracks in the show’s trademark over-the-top performances from Miley Cyrus, Ed Sheeran, Fifth Harmony and Lorde, among others.
