This is the biggest TV marathon day of the year as well as the biggest football day. Among the choices, if the Super Bowl is not your thing:
SciFi has hours of Star Trek: Enterprise (the one with Scott Bakula) and Discovery Channel the same of MythBusters, both starting at 9 a.m. WE offers six hours of America's Cutest Puppies beginning at 10, then 12 hours-plus of Rich Bride, Poor Bride;My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding; and Platinum Weddings. AMC shows all five Death Wish movies starting at noon, which is also when TNT's 12 hours of The Closer begins. And it wouldn't be a marathon day without USA doing Law & Order: Criminal Intent and SVU starting at 11 a.m. and the granddaddy - or grandmother, rather - marathon of them all, Murder, She Wrote, from 8 a.m. on Hallmark Channel.
House, 9 p.m., WTVT-Ch. 13
Only two new episodes are left because of the writers strike, and Fox burns off both this week. Tonight, the doctor who would sneer at Tom Brady's ankle "mystery" gets the coveted post-Super Bowl spot to treat, by long distance, a woman at the South Pole. On Tuesday, things end with business as usual: House thinks a woman is sick because she went from hedonist to Hasidic Jew.
Project Runway, 10 p.m., Bravo
If this doesn't make Coco Chanel rise from the dead seeking vengeance, nothing will: The final six designers make costumes for the WWE Divas. Meanwhile, PR has its New York Fashion Week runway show Friday. If all goes according to the previous three seasons, the final four will show their collections.
Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton, 8 p.m., Sundance Channel
The network begins six nights of fashion-oriented programs to accompany New York's fall fashion week with the U.S. premiere of this documentary about Jacobs, one of the most influential designers working today (some would say the most influential). It's the first time Jacobs has allowed cameras to record his design process; chronicled is the creation of his spring 2007 ready-to-wear collections for his eponymous line and for his employer Vuitton.
