Today, we’ve got the “Super Bowl Counter Programming” edition of “5 Shows After Dark” because I’m pretty certain that I don’t have to tell you about the Super Bowl. Away we go!
“Puppy Bowl VIII” on Animal Planet at 3pm, 5pm, 7pm, 9pm and 11pm. Basically, if you turn on Animal Planet tonight, some manner of adorable fuzzy animal will be frolicking with joy. The upside: there’s a pot bellied pig pep squad! The downside: There’s a weird Treasure Buddies tie in that interrupts at the very least the second half of the game. (Full disclosure: I may be watching the Puppy Bowl while writing this. And by “may” I mean “definitely am.”)
“Downton Abbey” on PBS at 9:00pm ET. PBS will also be rerunning an episode of “Downton” before this episode in certain markets, so if you’re a fan take a look.
“Luck” on HBO at 9:00pm ET.
“Shameless” on Showtime at 9:00pm ET. Showtime actually has a full schedule up tonight with “House of Lies” and “Californication” coming on after “Shameless” because they just don’t care about the foozeball, apparently.
The Marathons: “Ab Fab” marathon on BBC America, “Law and Order: SVU” on USA, “Law and Order: Mothership” on TNT, and “Being Human” (American version) on SyFy.
