The White House Correspondents Dinner. If you must watch this annual event that brings the press and politicians together to raise money for scholarships — the president, in a departure from tradition, is skipping this year — at least go for the unfiltered view you're unlikely to find on cable news. The Daily Show's Hasan Minhaj will perform. 9:30 p.m. Saturday, C-SPAN.
Full Frontal with Samantha Bee Not the White House Correspondents Dinner. The president won't be at this one, either. But Bee will. Proceeds go to the Committee to Protect Journalists. 10 p.m. Saturday, TBS.
Sexual Assault in College: Tamron Hall Investigates. It's estimated one in five women in college will experience sexual assault.

Bob Casey (D., Pa.), who cosponsored the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act. 8 p.m. Sunday, Investigation Discovery.
American Gods. Neil Gaiman's Hugo Award-winning fantasy novel comes to TV in this intriguing but not necessarily easy to follow adaptation by Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) and Michael Green (Kings).

Victorian Slum House. This could be your antidote to all those cable dream-home shows. Participants are sent back to 19th century tenement conditions "to live as their ancestors did" in London's East End. Fans of PBS's "House" shows (Manor House, Frontier House, etc.) should recognize the format. 8 p.m. Tuesday, WHYY12.
Batman & Bill. Philadelphia filmmakers Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce (The Art of the Steal) turn their attention to the story of Bill Finger, the long-uncredited cocreator of Batman, and to author Marc Tyler Nobleman, who made a crusade of winning recognition for Finger. May 6, Hulu.
