‘Golden Globes,’ return of ‘Bachelor’
Note: All times are Eastern/pacific unless noted.
DON’T MISS: “The 76th Annual Golden
Globe Awards” – It might not be Hollywood’s most prestigious trophy bash, but this celebration of the year’s best movies and TV shows tends to be the most fun. Why? Because booze flows freely and the stars are usually in a chillout kind of mood, which leads to entertaining speeches and off-the-cuff hilarity. Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg team up to host the event. (5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET, on Sunday, NBC).

MONDAY: “The Bachelor” returns with a new leading man – Colton Underwood – and 30 drama-prone women. A happily-ever-after to this twisted fairy tale is not guaranteed. (8 p.m.,

Blue Book” is based on the real-life, top-secret investigations into UFOS conducted by the U.S. Air Force during the 1950s and ’60s. Aiden Gillen leads the cast. (10 p.m., A&E).

FRIDAY: “Sex Education” is a witty coming-ofage dramedy set in Wales. It follows an inexperienced, socially awkward high school student (Asa Butterfield) whose mother (Gillian Anderson) happens to be a famous sex therapist. (Netflix).
