Sunday’s a big night all around: The 59th Annual Grammy Awards on CBS, hosted by charmer Brit James Corden, start at 8 p.m. ET/PT, with musical guests from Chrissy Teigen’s husband John Legend to ancient grumpus collective Metallica (Beyoncé unconfirmed at presstime). You’re also looking at the winter premiere of “Walking Dead” (AMC, 9 p.m. ET/PT) and HBO’s new seasons of “Girls” and “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver,” starting at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Monday’s finale of “The New Celebrity Apprentice” (NBC, 8 p.m. ET/PT) will just sit there like cold meatloaf as one or another of these misfit toys wins… something… And “The Young Pope” will smirk its way into the sunset with a final hour (HBO, 9 p.m. ET/PT). We’ll also be treated to the premieres of “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” (VH1, 9 p.m. ET/PT) and its cyberpunk equivalent, Season 2 of “Humans,” on AMC at 10 p.m. ET/PT. And sometime before Tuesday morning, “The Mindy Project” begins its three-week finale on Hulu.
Wednesday, Katie Heigl gives it the old college try with her fiftieth pilot — this season, “Doubt” on CBS at 10 p.m. ET/PT — and BET brings to a close its three-part Nelson Mandela miniseries “Madiba” starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
And finally, Netflix will release a third season of “Chef’s Table” early Friday — a Screener favorite with low-key buzz, this foodie/personality documentary series is a followup to David Gelb’s beloved 2011 film “Jiro Dreams of Sushi,” with all the lush photography, compulsive perfection and intimate moments we’ve come to expect. If “Great British Bake-Off” is a barrel ride of quaint thrills, consider “Chef’s Table” the lazy river: Engrossing, sumptuous and mindful.
