1) TONIGHT’S MUST-SEE: “American Masters,” 9-11 p.m., PBS. Just 51 weeks after PBS had a splendid Marian Anderson profile, here’s an even better one. Last year’s film focused on the peak: Banned from the segregated Constitution Hall, Anderson had a triumphant concert (shown here) at the Lincoln Memorial. This film includes that, but has a deeper profile of a winding life – a phenom at 8, a high-school grad (finally) at 24, a star who performed for royalty, but sat in the back of the bus.
2) “The Resident,” 8 p.m., Fox. Conrad hasn’t quite reached the hospital and already has a crisis: A young girl, injured and silent, was found near a highway; there’s work to be done in the hospital and in the unknown. Also, there’s rage as A.J. and Devon try to help stout woman. It’s a good episode that also starts a story – Billie confronting her past – that will continue.
3) “Jeopardy National College Championship” opener, 8 p.m., ABC. Here are 36 smart souls from 36 different schools. The competition continues (Tuesdays through Fridays) for two weeks, then has its championship Feb. 22. Mayim Bialik hosts, during her two-network spurt; her “Call Me Kat” has new episodes at 9 p.m. Thursdays on Fox.
4) Winter Olympics. Women’s alpine skiing will be live – the first run in prime time (8-11 p.m.) and the second and final one in latenight (11:35 p.m. to 2 a.m.) Also live are men’s freestyle skiing (prime) and snowboarding halfpipe qualifying runs (women in prime, men latenight). Taped events are all day on USA and 2-5 p.m. on NBC, plus mixed-doubles curling on CNBC – bronze at 5 p.m., gold at 8.
5) “Super Bowl Greatest Commercials All-Time Classics,” 8 p.m., CBS. Yes, the Olympics and Super Bowl week coincide. Here’s a special that counts down the top 10, then lets viewers choose between the top two. It’s hosted by Daniela Ruah and by Boomer Esiason, who had a Super Bowl link: The Cincinnati Bengals are in this year’s Super Bowl – for the first time since he was their quarterback in 1989.
