“Being Human” (9 p.m., BBC America). Still haven’t seen last week’s season premiere, but I’ll get to it one of these days. Tonight, George and Nina try to help an out-of-control teenage werewolf who happens to be a basketball star. Oh wait, that was “Teen Wolf.”
“Independent Spirit Awards” (7 p.m., IFC). Joel McHale hosts and promises to be less abrasive than Ricky Gervais. And with the many nominations for “Black Swan,” “127 Hours,” “Winter’s Bone” and “The Kids Are Alright,” this should be an interesting Oscar preview.
“An Idiot Abroad” (7 p.m., Science). Karl goes to Rio for Carnival, delves into the gay scene and hangs out at the beaches. Should be fairly offensive for all parties involved.
Game of the day
BYU vs. San Diego State (11 a.m., CBS). A huge late-season matchup between two of the least likely national powers. Plus it’s a chance to watch Jimmer Fredette score a million points.
NFL Scouting Combine (starting at 8 a.m., NFL Network). If you’re hard-core enough to watch this and you don’t work for an NFL team, you need professional help. Or else you’re Eric Branch.
“Area 51” (9 p.m., Syfy). An alien prisoner escapes from the secret facility and all hell breaks loose. Sounds good, except it stars Jason London (is he the crazy one, or is that Jeremy?) and Bruce Boxleitner. It also sounds like the plot to “Paul.”
