Metro’s breakdown of your weekend TV.

‘2013 Young Hollywood Awards’
AWARD SHOW. They’re broadcasting the 15th annual celebration of people with way too much money and way too much fame at way too young an age live from Santa Monica, Calif. No, we’re not jealous. Much.
Thursday, 8 p.m., CW

‘Hollywood Game Night’
GAME SHOW. A random assortment of celebrities, including that lunatic Tom Arnold, compete on trivia centered around cat-themed movie moments. It should be… weird.
Thursday, 10 p.m., NBC

‘Dexter’
DRAMA. Dex visits a young psychopath to determine if he’s a good fit for his table. We’re hoping he is — it’s been a long minute since we got to watch him slice and dice someone.
Sunday, 9 p.m., Showtime

‘The Newsroom’
DRAMA. We’re still not sure if we’re fans of this show — it’s a bit heavy-handed and self-important for our taste — but we are enjoying the recounting of the Occupy movement’s beginnings. Remember when that was a thing?
Sunday, 10 p.m., HBO
