Winter Olympics (8 p.m., NBC). It’s a pretty entertaining lineup tonight: Lindsey Vonn is the favorite in the women’s super-G, Apolo Ohno goes for a record-breaking seventh career medal in the 1,000m short-track speedskating, Shani Davis goes for gold in 1,500m speedskating, and the men’s bobsled gets under way.
“Survivors” (8 and 9 p.m., BBC America). No, it’s not the reality show. This British miniseries follows a group of survivors after a global flu pandemic that pretty much destroys humanity. The premiere episode re-airs at 8, with another episode after. I caught a bit of it last week, and it’s not bad. Kinda grim, but. . . .
Drop in and watch
“Deadliest Catch” (Discovery). There’s a daylong marathon of the gripping docu-series following Alaskan crab fishermen, running from noon until the wee hours of the morning. It’s great stuff, and will likely be a little more poignant in the wake of the recent death of one of the captains, Phil Harris.
