The 53rd Grammy Awards (CBS, Sunday) — Yes, the Grammys are a joke, but this will have to suffice because all the respectable music critics are, like, totally over awards shows, man. For Kanye fans, set your alarm clock for next year, because My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy came out after the September 30th eligibility deadline. Way to stay timely, Grammys. Scheduled to perform: Eminem and Dr. Dre, Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, and Lady Gaga (rumored to be playing with Muse, which could actually be pretty cool). How much you wanna bet she’s taken the gramophones off the awards she won last year and fashioned them into a chestplate?
Saturday Night Live (NBC) — Russell Brand hosts with musical guest Chris Brown, who of course tried his hardest to punch the attractiveness off of Rihanna. I’m torn about Brand: I find his stand-up comedy atrocious, but I couldn’t help but like him in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek.
The British Oscars (BBC America, Sunday) — Okay, so technically they’re called the BAFTA Awards, but I prefer to get to the point. Nominated for top awards are The King’s Speech and a bunch of movies that are going to lose to The King’s Speech.
Bob’s Burgers (Fox, Sunday) — I still haven’t caught an episode of this yet, and it’s really bothering me. Here’s hoping I finally remember to DVR it.
Onion News Network/Portlandia (IFC, Friday) — More shows I keep forgetting to DVR. I’m really gonna do it, people! (Unless I forget.)
The Sunset Limited (HBO, Saturday) — Based on a play by Cormac McCarthy, directed by Tommy Lee Jones, and starring Jones and Samuel L. Jackson. This is going to win every Golden Globe and Emmy award possible for a TV movie.
