This week’s TV Movies



Brits pick the best of the past year’s flicks at the “BAFTA Awards 2013,” where “Lincoln” leads the pack with 10 noms. And singer Frank Ocean is up for six trophies at “The 55th Annual Grammy Awards.” (BBC America, 5 and 8 p.m.; CBS, 8 p.m.)

Cylons! The metallic meanies are back in “Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome,” a new prequel to the acclaimed science fiction series. And zombies! “The Walking Dead” are still walking and still dead when that horror-drama returns with new episodes. (Syfy, 8 p.m.; AMC, 9 p.m.)


Bob Newhart, Louis C.K. and “30 Rock’s” Tina Fey — we miss her already — are among the funny folks who’ll be talking shop with host David Steinberg on a new season of “Inside Comedy.” (Showtime, 11 p.m.)


President Obama delivers the “State of the Union” address before a joint session of Congress. After which, “Frontline” explores the contentious politics of the national debt, the deficit and that dreaded “fiscal cliff.” (Various channels, 6 p.m.; KOCE, 8 p.m.)



“Southland,” which went one-season-and-out on NBC in 2009 before moving to cable, is hanging tough. The L.A.-set cop drama is back for a fifth season, with a promotion for C. Thomas Howell from recurring guest star to series regular. (TNT, 10 p.m.)


If you liked “The Da Vinci Code” or “National Treasure,” you might also enjoy the new drama “Zero Hour” – which is rather a lot like “The Da Vinci Code” and/or “National Treasure.” And we mean rather a lot. “ER’s” Anthony Edwards stars. (ABC, 8 p.m.)


Concluding Saturday, the two-part rock-doc “History of the Eagles” revisits the band’s 1970s-’80s heyday. And the snazzy show tunes of Broadway’s Kander & Ebb take center stage on a new “Live From Lincoln Center.” (Showtime, 8 p.m.; KOCE, 9 p.m.)


Beyoncé may just be the hardest-working woman in show business. She makes records and videos, designs clothes and fragrances, acts in movies, and has just directed a new documentary about herself, “Beyoncé: Life is But a Dream.” (HBO, 9 p.m.)

“Stories from the Road to Freedom” uses rare photos, movies and sound recordings to tell the untold tales of everyday African Americans from the end of slavery to the civil rights era. (History, 10 p.m.)
