Army Wives (9 p.m. Sunday, Lifetime) The seventh season of TV’s only drama about the lives of military families kicks off with an unexpected and devastating twist on the cliff-hanger that ended last year’s run. Is this a soap? Yeah. Does it pull it at your heartstrings? Ohhhh, yeah.

Ring of Fire (8 p.m. Monday, Reelz) As if we didn’t have enough to worry about from zombies, terrorists, Kardashians, the ebola virus and the ever-present possibility that one of Jerry Springer’s guests will talk about sleeping with your mother, here’s a two-part miniseries about a chain of volcanic eruptions that destroys the world. Terry O’Quinn of Lost presides over the chaos and destruction.

The World According to Dick Cheney (9 p.m. Friday, Showtime) The former vice president, in all his combative glory, talks about his career and how everybody who followed him in Washington is a fool or a swine. The rare documentary that’s likely to appeal to people who love him and those who hate him.
