If you live up here in New England, the good news is, you’re probably going to have a lot of time to watch television this weekend. The bad news? You may not have any power with which to watch. So, power up those devices, folks, download lots of movies and television shows, build a blanket tent, and settle in.
The Walking Dead (AMC, Sunday 10 p.m.) — The weekend’s big event is the return of The Walking Dead and the showdown between Merle, Daryl, and The Governor. We also find out whether if the rumors were true that Glen Mazarra bungled the second half of the season. Check back on Monday for the return of our weekly recaps.
The Jenny McCarthy Show (VH1, Friday 10 p.m.) — Does anyone remember Singled Out? I still can’t listen to Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist without thinking, “How is this guy a nerd? HE HOSTED SINGLED OUT?” But of the two, he certainly came out of the situation best, as McCarthy kicks off a VH1 talk show tonight that’ll probably be about how $$%$ING crazy she is.
Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday 11:30 p.m.) — Justin Bieber hosts, and the big question will be whether the show even airs or not, considering the storm coming through, although to my knowledge, SNL has never been interrupted by weather.
Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome (SyFy, Sunday 8 p.m.) — The prequel web series to Battlestar Galactica is coming to the SyFy channel, should you want to follow the adventures of a young William Adama.
The Grammy Awards (CBS, Sunday 8 p.m.) — L.L. Cool J will host the awards this year, and if you’re suffering through it, don’t do it alone, for God’s sake. Join the Uproxx live discussion.
House of Cards (Netflix, Anytime) — What better time than during a snowstorm than to binge-watch House of Cards. I loved the show, but my concern is still that people who didn’t catch it early will lose interest. So, if you haven’t seen it yet, check it out: I’m cool with validating Netflix’s strategy.
Shameless (Showtime, Sunday 9 p.m.) — The episode description says that “Jimmy learns his parents are getting divorced and his dad is gay.” Wait, WHAT? Jimmy’s Dad is gay? He is going to LOSE IT.
