2014 Olympic Winter Games on NBC at 7:00pm ET. Tonight’s time-delayed and frustratingly edited events are men’s downhill skiing, women’s snowboard slopestyle, men’s ski jumping and the ladies free skate event of the team figure skating competition. The whole team figure skating thing is so bizarre to me. I mean, I guess it’s nice that they’ve figured out a way to get more nights out one of the most popular winter sports, but it really just doesn’t seem like a natural outgrowth of the sport. But that’s why I’m not working for the Olympics. That and I still have a shred of dignity.
Downton Abbey on PBS at 9:00pm ET.
Shameless on Showtime at 9:00pm ET.
True Detective on HBO at 9:00pm ET. There’s going to be a 15 minute teaser for season 4 of Game of Thrones right before this at 8:45pm. So, all you Game of Thrones fans looking for a fix, this will have to hold you over until the DVDs come out on February 18th.
The Walking Dead on AMC at 9:00pm ET. Fourth season winter premiere. They’re out of the prison, so now the race is on to find what the next location they get to hide in for most of the time so the makeup team doesn’t blow their budget too quickly.
Genevieve Burgess is counting the days to April 6th.
