“Super Bowl's Greatest Halftime Shows,” 9-11 p.m., CBS.
When Michael Jackson
soared in 1993, the Super Bowl halftime shows transforemed. Gone were
the days of marching bands, Up With People, Carol Channing, Andy
Williams, Mickey Rooney and (really) a fiddling Miss America; taking
over were rock stars.
Two days before this
year's show – with Coldplay and guests, including Beyonce -- this
looks back at Springsteen, Stones, Madonna and more. It also talks to
some of the performers – Bono (2002), Paul McCartney (2005),
Beyonce (2013), Bruno Mars (2014) and last year's Katy Perry and
“Sleepy Hollow” return, 8 p.m., Fox.
When we last visited
“Hollow,” Abbie Mills the cop was trying to rescue her sister
Jenny; she was promptly blasted away. Now – after an 11-week break
– the show returns with a strong hour that starts with a
high-octane motorcycle chase, then adds deep passion.
Ichabod Crane and
Jenny Mills obsess on finding Abbie. Along the way, we see Betsy Ross
and Pandora; flashbacks and fantasy are quite big here.
ALTERNATIVE: More fantasy, everywhere.
The good news is
that the big broadcast networks have taken a fresh interest in
fantasy shows. The bad is that they've stuffed most of them into one
At 8 p.m., “Sleepy
Hollow” collides with CW's “Vampire Diaries” (the Phoenix stone
has left Stefan and Damon shattered). At 9, NBC's “Grimm” (the
legendary “lake monster” is linked to a tourist's death) and CW's
“The Originals” (Aya may know of a vampire-killing weapon) face
Fox's “Second Chance”: Duval starts to realize that the guy he's
working with may be his re-incarnated father.
(1994), 6:45 p.m., Freeform. This Oscar-winner leads a strong night
for light movies. At 8 p.m., there's “Finding Nemo” (2003) on
Disney, “The Hangover” (2009) on TNT, “Love Actually” (2003)
on VH1 and the superb “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (2005)
on IFC. At 9, Starz has the idealistic “Tomorrowland” (2015) and
Showtime has Spike Lee's new Michael Jackson documentary.
8 p.m., CBS. This show's eight-episode season, split between two
nights, concludes with the CEO of 4 Wheel Parts. Next week, a new
“Amazing Race” begins.
“Caught on Camera”
return, 8 p,m., NBC. Hosted by Nick Cannon, this had a couple
episodes in 2014, then disappeared. It's based on European shows,
with moments caught on phone-cameras and more.
Standing,” 8 p.m., ABC. Living spaces become an issue for all three
sisters. Mike wants Kristin to get a house, not an apartment; Mandy
wants Eve out of the basement, her work space.
“Dr. Ken,” 8:30,
ABC. Joel McHale guests as a prominent malpractice lawyer who has
clashed with Ken. Now their kids have a date at a Valentine's Day
“Live at the
Lincoln Center,” 9-11 p.m., PBS (check local listings). Some of
opera's greats link in a concert for the Richard Tucker Foundation
and its award – sometimes called “the Heisman Trophy of opera.”
Renee Fleming (a previous winner) and Andrea Bocelli top the line-up
– which includes new winner Jamie Barton. She grew up in
Appalachia, listened to bluegrass and rock, then converted.
“Key & Peele
Super Bowl Special,” 10 p.m., Comedy Central. This repeats last
year's special. It follows reruns of the witty “Key & Peele,”
from 2:40 to 4:47 p.m. and 6:53 to 10 p.m.
