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).

Other bets:

MON­DAY: A highly pre­dictable sea­son of col­lege foot­ball comes to a close with Alabama meet­ing Clem­son in the cham­pi­onship clash at Levi’s Sta­dium in Santa Clara. Alabama is seek­ing its sec­ond straight ti­tle and third in four years. (5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET, ESPN).

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.,


MON­DAY: Su­san

Boyle vs. Darci Lynne Farmer? “Amer­ica’s Got Ta­lent: The Cham­pi­ons” brings to­gether some past win­ners and fan fa­vorites from not just the U.S. ver­sion of the show, but its for­eign fran­chises as well. Terry Crews hosts. (8 p.m., NBC).

TUES­DAY: The new drama se­ries “Project

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).

WED­NES­DAY: Fi­nal sea­son of the caus­tic rom­com “You’re the Worst.” Jimmy and Gretchen tell the story of their love to a prospec­tive wed­ding plan­ner. That can’t turn out well. (10 p.m., FXX).

THURS­DAY: The cop com­edy “Brook­lyn Ninenine” be­gins a sec­ond act of sorts. Af­ter be­ing canceled by Fox, it launches a new sea­son on a new net­work. Let’s hope it’s as funny as ever. (9 p.m., NBC).

THURS­DAY: In the fresh­man sit­com “Fam,” an ide­al­is­tic per­fec­tion­ist (Nina Do­brev) sees her life up­ended when her wild teen half-sis­ter (Odessa Ad­lon) un­ex­pect­edly moves in. (9:30 p.m., CBS).

FRI­DAY: Sea­son 2 of the time-trav­el­ing com­edy “Fu­ture Man” picks up in 2162 as Josh, Wolf, and Tiger learn that their mis­sion to save the fu­ture not only didn’t work out, but trig­gered a war. Some­how they’ve got to fix that. (Hulu).

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).

SATUR­DAY: Now that the mushy hol­i­day movies are over, we can get back to de­mented crime sto­ries. In “My Mother’s

Split Per­son­al­i­ties,” a widow (Lind­say Hart­ley) acts bizarre while her boyfriend (Jef­fer­son Brown) plots to get his hands on her for­tune. (8 p.m., Lifetime).
