Sundays are usually a great day for television, but there is no new episode of Game of Thrones tonight because of the holiday weekend. When HBO aired the penultimate episode of season two, a year ago over Memorial Day weekend, the episode pulled in the worst ratings of the season by a large margin. Because of that lack of success last year, Game of Thrones has decided to delay season 3, episode 9, “The Rains of Castamere”. The show will be pushed back a week and air on June 2.
Without the pleasure of a new Game of Thrones episode, what is there you do? Here are a few ideas:
- You can check out this revamped version of the Game of Thrones theme song that features some gnarly guitar shredding.
- If you are looking to prepare yourself for the highly anticipated episode next week, you can catch up the show by sorting through or Game of Thrones recaps from Margaret McCloskey.

- There is a new episode of Mad Men on television tonight, along with all of the new episodes of Arrested Development, which returns for the first time since 2006.
