The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards — The new fall season kicks off in earnest this week with a deluge of series premieres. But first we celebrate the best television work of the past season.

For the first time, Internet-only shows are big-time contenders as Netflix crashes the party with nominations for House of Cards and its Arrested Development revival. 8 p.m. Sunday, CBS.
Sunday: After eight killer seasons, the groundbreaking drama, Dexter, comes to a close. Will our blank-faced antihero escape to Argentina, or will he pay dearly for his sins? 10 p.m., Showtime.
Monday: It’s time again to play musical chairs. The Voice kicks off Season 5 and celebrates the return of original coaches, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera, who are back to spar with Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. 8 p.m., NBC.
Tuesday: Grab the Kleenex NCIS fans. The new season launches with two episodes largely devoted to bidding an emotional farewell to beloved Ziva (Cote de Pablo). Sniffle. (8 p.m., CBS).
