Kit­ten Bowl II

North Shore An­i­mal League Amer­ica spokesper­son Beth Stern re­turns to host the cham­pi­onship “game” in this popular counter-pro­gram­ming stunt for view­ers who don’t give a hoot about the Su­per Bowl. New York Yan­kees ra­dio vet­eran John Ster­ling will pro­vide color com­men­tary on plays by the 90-plus “catth­letes” par­tic­i­pat­ing, all of which will be adopted out im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the game.

11 a.m., HALL

Su­per Bowl XLIX

One of the big­gest sports — and tele­vi­sion — events of any year ar­rives again, as Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth call the ac­tion when the AFC cham­pion New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots and the win­ners of the NFC, the de­fend­ing cham­pion Seat­tle Sea­hawks, col­lide at the Uni­ver­sity of Phoenix Sta­dium in Glen­dale, Ariz. Bruno Mars set some­thing of a high bar as last year’s half­time-show star, but he has a solid suc­ces­sor: Katy Perry, who’s cer­tain to in­fuse the ap­prox­i­mately 12-minute­long per­for­mance with her own brand of “Fire­work.”

The Black­list

In “Luther Brax­ton,” a new two-part episode that concludes Thurs­day, Red (James Spader) is ar­rested and taken to a se­cret detention fa­cil­ity, send­ing Liz (Megan Boone) and the rest of the task force scram­bling to save him be­fore he dis­ap­pears for­ever. At the hid­den fa­cil­ity, Red has an un­ex­pected re­u­nion with Luther Brax­ton (guest star Ron Perl­man), a thief with whom he shares a com­pli­cated his­tory. David Strathairn and Janel Maloney also guest star.
