We're Approaching Peak Red-Carpet

2014 NFL Pro Bowl on NBC at 7:30pm ET.

The 56th Annual Grammy Awards on CBS at 8:00pm ET. The red carpet extravaganza for this is on E! and starts at 4pm. Two hours of Countdown to the Red Carpet: The 2014 Grammys and two hours of Live From the Red Carpet: The 2014 Grammys. Given the precedent being set here, I anticipate the Oscar red-carpet coverage will begin at 8am ET and will include watching some hapless starlet getting vacuum sealed into her gown and spackled with make-up. Anyway, this year’s Grammy performers line up looks vaguely promising.

Bob’s Burgers on Fox at 8:30pm ET.

Downton Abbey on PBS at 9:00pm ET. I am intrigued by PBS’s decision to put Downton Abbey and Sherlock back to back on Sundays as I’m not sure how much an overlap they have, audience-wise. All they really have in common is that everyone in England or with passing knowledge of proxy servers has already seen them both.

True Detective on HBO at 9:00pm ET. I have to tell you, writing on the internet without having HBO is nearly unbearable when series like this come out. As much as I generally don’t care about spoilers, it does make me a little sad to know that by the time this series is (legally) available to me, it probably won’t hold any real surprises.

Genevieve Burgess enjoys looking at pretty dresses as much as the next person, but can’t imagine doing it for four solid hours.

    Okay, GB, you're giving Christina Ricci a pass?

    (Yeah, I know, it's a Lifetime movie, but it seems that Ricci is still a favorite around here.)

    That mass wedding that Queen Latifah is going to perform almost convinced me to watch the Grammys. ALMOST.

    Also, I'll especially love it when E! starts making Ryan Seacrest do the pre-pre-pre-show for the Schmemmys starting Friday morning a week before the actual televised awards. By himself. Interviewing the stage crew after the dress rehearsal.

    ME ME ME ME. And I have no idea how to watch these ahead of time online.
