Watch this for week of Jan. 2

Rose Parade 2012, 11 a.m., HGTV: In case you don't care a whit about football, there's always this special, commercial-free and broadcast in 3-D. It's like the corny floats are driving right into your living room!

NHL Hockey, 1 p.m., NBC: While most Americans are watching one of 7,000 NCAA bowl games, diehard shinny fans can watch the Broad Street Bullies take on the Broadway Blueshirts in South Philly for this year's Winter Classic outdoors at the Phillies' home, Citizens Bank Park.

SEASON PREMIERE The Biggest Loser, 8 p.m., NBC: Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince are back as trainers for the unlucky 13th season. Unlucky, because despite tons of related people showing up together, they're all competing solo.

SERIES PREMIERE Work It, 8:30 p.m., ABC: A rip-off of Tom Hanks' old sitcom Bosom Buddies, about two guys who pretend to be women to get jobs as pharmaceutical reps. Because men are now willing to make 70 cents for every dollar they used to make.

I Get That a Lot, 8 p.m., CBS: Another installment of semi-lebrities like Apolo Ohno, Jerry Springer and Dr. Drew Pinsky pretending they aren't themselves when people recognize them. They should be so lucky.

Modern Family, 9 p.m., ABC: Manny's real father shows up to take the boy to the races for his birthday. That's right, it's Benjamin Bratt versus Ed O'Neill. Our money's on Dutch.

Grey's Anatomy, 9 p.m., ABC: Will someone please just give Teddy the bad news about Henry already? You're not making things any easier.

SERIES PREMIERE Project Runway All Stars, 9 p.m., Lifetime: Heidi, Michael, Nina and Tim have been replaced by Angela Lindvall, Joanna Coles, Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman. Don't know about that one, especially with designers not good enough to win the first time around.

A Gifted Man, 8 p.m., CBS: Patrick Wilson needs surgery. Quick! Someone call his dad!

Fortune Finders, 10 p.m., NatGeo: Following a team of investigators in Las Vegas responsible for securing valuables and contacting family members when someone dies alone. Sounds like a joy-filled vocation.
