What to watch on Sunday, January 24...
The gang rushes a wounded Galavant to a seek mystical medical attention in “Love and Death,” though they still find time for romance and zombies. Then in “Do the D’DEW,” battle is joined between Hortensia and Valencia, with Isabella rallying her side while Madalena enlists Wormwood’s evil magic on hers.
As Anna and Mary make haste for London, Downton greets a pair of visitors from the past. Meanwhile, Baxter mulls a new case and Daisy continues her efforts for Mr. Mason.
Frank teaches Debbie to game the welfare system in “The F Word,” which I think qualifies as some of the best parenting of Frank Gallagher’s career. Elsewhere, Kevin and Veronica’s attempts to make amends with the hospitalized Yanis aren’t as well received as they would hope.
MINISERIES PREMIERE, 10pm or following the NFC Championship Game, Fox
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson return as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in this six-episode reboot, which finds the now-former feds looking into a possible government conspiracy (a topic about which they may know a thing or two). “My Struggle” introduces Mulder and Scully to a web-TV host (Joel McHale) and a woman (Annet Mahendru) who claim to have been abducted by aliens. The second episode airs tomorrow at 8pm as the series settles into its regular Monday timeslot.
Emma tends to a wounded friend, Dr. Foster juggles personal and professional problems, and Mary recruits Samuel to help better her patients’ lives. Meanwhile in “The Haversack,” Silas ropes Aurelia into some chicanery.
Chuck’s investigation is thrown off course even as Axe makes a bold play in “Naming Rights.” Though at press time, Axe was still workshopping the best cool-guy one-liner to drop when he makes the aforementioned bold play. Right now it’s between “The Axe-Man scoreth!” and “Just the AXE, ma’am!”
