MOVIE “The Sound of Mu­sic” / 7:00pm (7) Julie An­drews’ sweet voice fills the hills in this Academy Award-win­ning 1965 mu­si­cal based on the true story of Aus­tria’s Von Trapp fam­ily. An­drews plays Maria, the con­vent-trained gov­erness of a wealthy Aus­trian’s (Christo­pher Plum­mer) chil­dren. The score fea­tures such songs as “Edel­weiss” and “My Fa­vorite Things.” Among those play­ing the young­sters are An­gela Cartwright, Ni­cholas Ham­mond, Heather Men­zies and the late Charmian Carr.

Son of Zorn / 8:30pm (5) Zorn (voice of Ja­son Sudeikis) de­ploys a clever way to play hooky from work in “A Tale of Two Zorns.” He wants to be avail­able to buy a new video game the mo­ment it goes on sale, so he puts a body dou­ble in his usual place. Once Edie and Linda (Ch­eryl Hines, Artemis Peb­dani) re­al­ize what’s go­ing on, the dou­ble gets abused by them in a way the real Zorn doesn’t. Johnny Pem­ber­ton and Tim Mead­ows also star. Fam­ily Guy / 9:00pm (5) Hav­ing a prob­lem-solv­ing call trans­ferred to tech­ni­cal sup­port in In­dia isn’t un­usual these days ... but trav­el­ing there to find the per­son be­hind a voice you fell in love with is. Such is the mis­sion of Brian (voice of Seth MacFar­lane) in “Road to In­dia,” and he brings Stewie (also voiced by MacFar­lane) along. Peter (yes, MacFar­lane’s voice again) steals the show at a bingo night.

Shame­less / 9:00pm (Show­time)

The ex­tended Gal­lagher clan is painfully fa­mil­iar with peo­ple drop­ping out of their lives, of­ten through aban­don­ment but some­times through death — and the Sea­son 7 fi­nale finds them deal­ing with the loss of one of their own. The sit­u­a­tion sparks mixed emo­tions, as in­di­cated in the episode ti­tle, “Re­quiem for a Slut.” Else­where, Debbie, Carl and Liam (Emma Kin­ney, Ethan Cutkosky, Bren­den Sims) get swept up in Frank’s (Wil­liam H. Macy) lat­est scheme.

Julie An­drews stars in “The Sound of Mu­sic” Sun­day on ABC.
