1) “Clarice” debut, 10 p.m., CBS. Three decades ago, “Silence of the Lambs” won the best-picture Oscar, with Jodie Foster as Clarice, a young FBI agent who catches a serial killer. Now we nudge ahead a year; Clarice (Rebecca Breeds, shown here) wants to stay in her desk job, but she’s nudged into the field. The result is beautifully directed and acted, but a mixed blessing. It has unneeded flashbacks (brief, but gory) and the cop-show cliché of higher-ups who just keep getting in the way.
2) Comedies, 8-10 p.m., CBS. Mired in reruns lately, CBS suddenly has new episodes to give “Clarice” a boost. That begins with “Young Sheldon” starting college – and promptly arguing with a professor. Then “B Positive” puts Drew in another funk, after missing his daughter’s soccer game. “Mom” sees Bonnie turn irate when her husband makes a big purchase without consulting her. And on “The Unicorn,” Wade and his new girlfriend are doing well, until he has a slip of the tongue.
3) “Last Man Standing,” all night. First, CMT has reruns from 4-8 p.m.; then Fox – with the show’s ninth and final season – has a new episode at 9:30. Bill Engvall has his eighth turn as Rev. Paul … who, Mike feels, might be taking advantage of the soft-hearted Kyle.
4) “Walker,” 8 p.m., CW. Micki is unhappy with the attention she gets during an investigation. Meanwhile, secrets are emerging from Walker’s time when he was away, working undercover. He learns his parents had trouble; his son learns some of his secrets.
5) “Coming to America” (1988), 8:30 p.m., Freeform. On March 5, Amazon Prime will debut “Coming 2 America,” which sets some sort of record for patience – waiting 33 years for a sequel, with the original stars. First, here’s a chance to see that first film. Eddie Murphy plays an African prince, hoping to find a bride in the U.S.; Arsenio Hall plays his friend. The two stars also each play three other roles.
