February 2011 TV Calendar of Premieres, Specials and Finales

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 1st 2011 6:00AM
'Mr. Sunshine' / 'The 83rd Annual Academy Awards' / 'The Chicago Code'While everyone's expecting this year's Super Bowl to set new television viewing records, as the NFL has been doing all season, that doesn't mean there's nothing else going on this month. Fox brings you not only the big game, but that special super-sized episode of 'Glee' airing right after it, as well as new series 'The Chicago Code' and 'Traffic Light.'

Not to be outdone, ABC premieres 'Mr. Sunshine,' starring Matthew Perry, while CBS kicks off Sarah Chalke in 'Mad Love,' 'Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior' and the returns of Rob Mariano and Russell Hantz to 'Survivor: Redemption Island;' not to mention a whole cast of returning favorites on the new season of 'The Amazing Race.'

This month also sees some big-time award shows, including a stateside airing of the British Academy Film Awards, the Grammys and the Academy Awards. Also coming stateside, to keep us confused, is the third season of the original UK 'Being Human.' Starz bids farewell to their 'Spartacus' prequel while saying hello to their ambitious King Arthur epic, 'Camelot.'

Other farewells include season adieus for 'Primeval,' '$#*! My Dad Says,' Human Target,' and 'Episodes.' DirecTV viewers will see the series finale of 'Friday Night Lights,' while everyone else will be waiting until NBC airs the final season this summer starting April 15. In the meantime, NBC hasn't given up on 'The Event' [but they have bumped it back a week, to March 7 now--jh], while CBS closes the chapter on the first (and only?) season of 'Live to Dance' to make room for 'Dancing with the Stars' next month.

But for this month, with winter hitting especially hard, why not just stay home and sit in front of the warmth of your television. Just hang on to this handy guide of all the premieres, specials and finales and you'll be set until the thaw ... or next month.
