Simulcast live on two networks, the “20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards” (TBS and TNT at 8 p.m.) honors the year’s best performances in film and television in a ceremony that’s often much more subdued than the “Globes.”

SERIES PREMIERE: Professional beautiful person Joseph Gordon-Levitt is bringing his online project to television with “HitRecord on TV” (Pivot at 10), a variety show in which Web users collaborate on short films and videos around a theme.

Rapper Drake is musical guest and host to “Saturday Night Live” (NBC at 11:30), which is also the debut of new cast member Sasheer Zamata.

Sunday talk shows: “Platts Energy Week” (WUSA at 8 a.m.) interviews John P. Holdren of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy; “BioCentury This Week” (WUSA at 8:30) features Geisinger Health System’s Glenn D. Steele Jr.; “Fox News Sunday” (Fox at 9) hosts Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) and former National Security Agency chief Michael V. Hayden; “White House Chronicle” (WETA at 9) has patient activist Mary Dimmock; “State of the Union” (CNN at 9) features Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.).

“Government Matters” (WJLA at 9:30) hosts Stephen Warren of the Department of Veterans Affairs; “This Week” (ABC at 10) features Russian President Vladmir Putin and Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Tex.); “Newsmakers” (C-SPAN at 10) talks to Richard Cordray of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; “This Is America and the World” (WETA at 10 and WHUT at 6 p.m.) talks to The Washington Post’s David Ignatius; “Meet the Press” (NBC at 10:30) has Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Rogers; “Face the Nation” (CBS at 10:30) talks to Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) and Rogers.

Sunday night, the docu-series “Castle Secrets and Legends” (Travel at 10 p.m.) premieres to give viewers a peek behind the gates of some of the most impressive castles, manor houses and mansions in the world.

SERIES PREMIERE: For a docu-series with far fewer brain cells, the show “#RichKids of Beverly Hills” (E! at 10) follows a clique of kids who’ve gained a little bit of fame by promoting their every action and thought on social media sites such as Instagram and Twitter.

SERIES PREMIERE: For something far less horrible, turn to new dramedy “Looking” (HBO at 10:30), which premieres with high hopes of it becoming a smart and earnest portrayal of a group of gay men living in San Francisco. Stars Jonathan Groff, Frankie J. Alvarez, Murray Bartlett and Raúl Castillo.
