“The Nineties” (9 p.m., CNN): Tonight’s installment of the documentary series, “Clinton: The Comeback Kid,” recalls Bill Clinton’s presidency, which began and ended with controversy spanning from an inability to reform America’s health care system to a sex scandal that led to impeachment proceedings.

As the beloved epic fantasy returns for its seven-episode penultimate season, all eyes are on the Iron Throne. Daenerys Targaryen has finally set sail for Westeros with her armies and dragons. Jon Snow is now King in the North after surviving the Battle of the Bastards. And in King’s Landing, Cersei Lannister has seized control by incinerating the High Sparrow and her arch enemies. But as old alliances fracture and new ones emerge, an army of dead men marches on the Wall, threatening to cause major havoc. 9 p.m. Sunday, HBO.
