Prime Picks

Super Bowl LI (FOX): New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons. Starts at 6:30pm ET. Lady Gaga is the halftime performer.
24: Legacy (FOX): Series Premiere. In the opening hour, a Special Forces member that was part of a team that took down a wanted terrorist and has been living under witness protection gets found by followers of the terrorist. He escapes and needs help from CTU after others of his team are killed and he learns of a plan for terror attacks on American soil. Starts following the postgame show. Some ridiculous stuff happens in the first three episodes and there are plenty of shady characters and potential moles, but Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre in the movie Straight Outta Compton) as the lead is really good and I quite enjoyed the ride so far. If you liked 24, you’ll probably like this as well. Will you be checking this out tonight?

  • Homeland (Showtime): Repeats. The first three episodes of season six replay tonight.
