TO WATCH

Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials 2013, 8 p.m., CBS Boomer Esiason and Aisha Tyler host a show dedicated to the one thing that consumerist Americans love more than watching two packs of steroid monsters tear each other limb from limb in an overwhelmingly lopsided game punctuated by hours of standing around doing nothing: Ads that cost way too much, selling things no one watching needs. Except beer. We all need beer

Top Chef: Seattle, 10 p.m., Bravo The chefs must create something with iceberg lettuce while on a cruise to Alaska. We swear, if one of them cuts it into wedges and serves it with Russian dressing, we are done with this show.
