All times eastern; PBS schedules may vary.
The week kicks off with the Daytime Emmys (but not on TV!); the Met Gala gets the E! treatment; the early years of King Henry VIII’s first wife are examined; and Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD finally return. Happy viewing!
The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards – 8 to 11pm online
Mario Lopez and Sheryl Underwood once again host daytime’s biggest night (though it’s a smaller night in the grand scheme of things, so the Daytime Emmys are no longer televised).

(NOTE: The annual Emmy “after party” happens on The Talk (CBS/Global) at 2pm on Monday.)
