TV picks: Weekend, Jan. 11-13

Amy Poehler, left, and Tina Fey host the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards
SPECIAL. Sure, favorites like “Homeland” and “Argo” are nominated, but we’re guessing the performance most deserving of a statue on Sunday night comes from co-host — and former “Weekend Update” co-anchors — Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (both nominated for Best TV Comedy Actress to boot).
Sunday, 8 p.m., NBC

DRAMA. Cinemax continues its foray into scripted television with this drama about a deceptively sleepy town in Pennsylvania with an ex-con sheriff who is hunted by the head of a Ukrainian gang.
Series premiere, Friday, 10 p.m., Cinemax

“Cyndi Lauper: Still So Unusual”
REALITY. The quirky singer seems made for reality television; here the 59-year-old pop star is followed by cameras as she appears on “The Voice” and works on an autobiography.
Series premiere, Saturday, 9 p.m., WEtv

2013 Miss America Competition
SPECIAL. “The Bachelor” host Chris Harrison presides over the annual celebration of big hair and bikinis.
Saturday, 9 p.m., ABC
