What to Watch: 02/15/2016

Haaaaaaaaappy Presidents’ Day to all you presidents out in PresidentLand. Tonight’s recommendations have pretty much nothing to do with the leaders of the free world, although one could argue ambulance-chasing lawyers, Lifetime movies, and celebrities receiving awards are three pillars of America.

NAVANI’S PICK: 
58th Annual Grammy Awards [CBS, 8p]
LL Cool J returns as the host on a new night with performances by Adele, Miguel, The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar and more. Highlights include the first ever Broadway musical performance from the nominated cast of Hamilton and a special tribute to Celia Cruz.

JASON’S PICK:
Better Call Saul [AMC, 10p]
In the first season finale, all of Jimmy McGill’s good intentions turned to dust, his heroes failed him, and he took his first steps in his transition to morphing into Breaking Bad’s iconic slippery lawyer Saul Goodman. He returns tonight a changed man, and kind colleague/passing love interest Kim will assuredly not care for it. Also, there’s more Mike!

KATHERINE’S PICK:
A Date to Die For [LMN, 8p]
A woman going through a divorce wakes up the morning after a first date to find her date in bed (and fully clothed) with a knife in her chest. Framed–she thinks–for the murder, she must prove that someone else (totally her husband, obvs) did it.

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

  • Syfy’s adaptation of beloved fantasy series The Magicians scored its most critically satisfying episode last week. Looks like there’s some hope for the supernatural show.
  • Major Crimes returns after a two-month layoff with a gang-related five-parter called “Hindsight,” tonight on TNT. We’re deep into the fourth season of the show which formed from the ruins of The Closer.
  • It’s a particularly funny art-themed episode of TBS’ Angie Tribeca — the painter whose stolen work drives the initial plot is named MacGuffin. That is all!
  • Lucifer may not be a classic show, but it’s a lark, and Tom Ellis is a devilishly appealing lead. It’s on FOX.
  • We’ve lost most of our interest in the once-promising NBC sitcom one-two punch of Superstore/Telenovela. However, both boast will-they-are-won’t-they storylines coming to a head, so maybe this is the night they turn the corner.
