2013 means new choices
Tribute to Dick Clark, Cotton Bowl highlight this week’s TV offerings.
If you think a new year means a lot of new programming, you’re mostly wrong. Here’s what to watch and what to avoid on television this week:
Monday: “Enchanted” 7 p.m., NBC: A winning Amy Adams carries this slight tale of a fairytale princess in modern-day New York.
“New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Celebrates Dick Clark” 7 p.m., ABC: Jenny McCarthy and Fergie host a tribute to the most famous New Year’s counter-downer ever.
“Dick Clark’s Primetime New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2013” 9 p.m., ABC: Tonight’s countdown (interrupted only by your local news and a ton of commercials) features performances by Brandy, Taylor Swift and Pitbull.
“New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly” 9 p.m., NBC: I can’t recommend watching Carson Daly if your goal is to stay awake until midnight.
Tuesday: “Parenthood” Dale Roe is your Go-to Guy for useful information. He writes guides on everything from allergies to TV shows to local events to QR codes. What topics would you like to know more about? Send an email to droe@statesman. com.
