On TV this weekend


Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, 8 p.m., ABC Charlie Brown continues to pine for the Little Red-Haired Girl as part of a voyeuristic obsession bordering on stalking, while Linus engages in a student-teacher relationship that would probably get his instructor arrested these days.

SERIES PREMIERE Auction Packed, 9 p.m., NatGeo What's with all the auction-related shows? Our theory: Auctioning off the stuff people bought but couldn't afford is the only steady work available these days.

Fringe, 9 p.m., Fox A terrorist's weapon of choice is a flesh-eating insect. Wait, is this the version of The Mummy that had Brendan Fraser in it?


SERIES PREMIERE Must Love Cats, 8 p.m., Animal Planet John Fulton travels across the country writing songs about interesting cats. No, not crafty bluesmen, actual felines.

Iron Invader, 9 p.m., SyFy A meteorite crashes on Earth and its dreaded space bacteria wreaks havoc. If only they had a bottle of Space Mr. Clean to kill those germs.


53rd Annual Grammy awards, 8 p.m., CBS The performers at this annual snoozefest include Lady Gaga, Eminem, Katy Perry, Arcade Fire and possibly even Britney Spears. Heck, with that lineup even we would consider sitting through 897 awards categories — and Justin Bieber's blatant promotion of his new movie.

British Academy Film Awards, 8 p.m., BBC America Wait, they get movies across the pond? What an age we live in!

Episodes, 9:30 p.m., Showtime Matt LeBlanc realizes the show he's in isn't very good. Is this art imitating life, or the other way around?
