TV week of Feb. 10: 'House of Cards', 'Rake', 'Intelligence', Winter Olympics

MONDAY

The Fosters, 9 p.m., ABC Family

We totally love this show and what it has to say about family, both the ones we are born with and the ones we create for ourselves. But, honestly, has no one ever questioned that Callie's foster family's last name is the FOSTERS?

Questioning Darwin, 9 p.m., HBO

This documentary from Antony Thomas takes an in-depth look at the modern creationist movement and examines how Darwin's findings affected his own religious beliefs. Hey, seems like Bill Nye might have a few things to say about this topic.

Intelligence, 10 p.m., CBS

Here's the thing. It's so easy to make fun of a show that decided to call itself Intelligence for, uh, not being that way. That's all we're going to say.

WEDNESDAY

NOVA, 9 p.m., PBS

Tonight this show tackles the mystery of how the Duomo — the enormous dome atop the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, Italy — got built. Well, we have no idea, but it couldn't have taken as much work as it took me to hoof it up to the very top of that thing during that summer studying abroad. Let's just say it's not a good activity following a wine "tasting" the day before.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, 10 p.m., CBS

Let us all take a moment to reflect that Ted Danson is still on television in a weekly capacity. Good for you, Ted, good for you.

THURSDAY

Rake, 9 p.m., Fox

Greg Kinnear's incorrigible lawyer takes on a new case: a cannibal played by Denis O'Hare. Well, that's not something you see on TV every day! Unlike all the other elements of this show.

FRIDAY

Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, 8 p.m., ABC

Poor Charlie Brown. He wants to be remembered on Valentine's Day so badly, he'd settle for a card from just about anyone. Come on, dude, raise your standards!

House of Cards, Netflix

Since almost everything on network TV this week is reruns thanks to the Olympics, it's the perfect time to binge the second season of Netflix's original series House of Cards — it premieres in its entirety today. Because what better way to spend Valentine's Day than with Kevin Spacey's murderous, lying egomaniac Frank Underwood!

SATURDAY

XXII Winter Olympics, 3 p.m., NBC

Today, they're handing out medals in women's short track, cross-country skiing and men's skeleton. Who cares what they show, it's the Olympics! We'll be glued to it all day like a zombie regardless.
