Lifetime Original Movie “A Sister’s Revenge” (Lifetime at 8) doesn’t tell us why this woman wants revenge, but it starts with her seducing a happily married restaurateur.

Kathie Lee Gifford performs a musical number on “Smash” (NBC at 9); in an unrelated note, Tom and Julia talk about splitting up as producing partners.

Sunday talk-shows: “Platts Energy Week” (WUSA at 7:30 a.m.) interviews Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), Energy Minister of Trinidad & Tobago Kevin Ramnarine and Lockheed Martin’s Dan Heller; “This Week in Defense News” (WUSA at 8) has Center for Strategic and International Studies’ Anthony Cordesman and National Defense University’s T.X.

Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and U.S. Chief Information Officer Steve VanRoekel.

Will Peter be named governor? Will Cary strike out on his own with a new law firm? “The Good Wife” (CBS at 9 p.m.) wraps up Season 4 with an answer — or maybe with a cliffhanger, as the show has been renewed for a fifth season.

Tyrion learns a thing or two about weddings on “Game of Thrones” (HBO at 9); meanwhile, Robb suffers a betrayal.
