Other bets:

SUN­DAY: We reg­u­lar folks have no say in the Os­cars, Em­mys and Grammys. But we rule “The E!

(9 p.m., E!, USA and Syfy).

SUN­DAY: Bri­tish funny woman Ju­lia Davis wrote, di­rected and stars in “Sal­ly4ever.” It’s a dark, very off­beat com­edy about a woman (Cather­ine Shep­herd) who is about to marry her neb­bish boyfriend (Alex Mac­queen) when she en­coun­ters a free-spir­ited les­bian (Davis) who dra­mat­i­cally changes her life.

In the new se­ries “Real Coun­try,” Sha­nia Twain, Jake Owen and Travis Tritt se­lect emerg­ing artists to per­form in show­cases that spot­light their mu­si­cal talents.
