PRIME VIEWING THIS WEEK


SUNDAY

Bon Jovi (above), Beyoncé and the Black Eyed Peas are among the musical acts slated to perform at "The 52nd Annual Grammy Awards." Also on tap: An all-star tribute to Michael Jackson, including a 3-D mini-movie. (CBS, 8 p.m.)

MONDAY

The new docu-series "Kell on Earth" tracks New York City public-relations maven Kelley Cutrone and her crew of aspiring flacks as they work behind the scenes to build buzz and generate positive press for their fashion-industry clientele. (Bravo, 10 p.m.)

TUESDAY

What hath Ben (Michael Emerson, above) wrought? What -- or who -- has gotten into Locke? And did detonating that hydrogen bomb actually change the past/present/future? Those questions will be answered -- hopefully -- as "Lost" begins its final season. (ABC, 9 p.m.)

WEDNESDAY

Paging Dr. Dawson: James Van Der Beek ("Dawson's Creek") gets fitted for a lab coat when he guest stars as Mercy Hospital's hard-to-please director of intensive care on a new episode of the medical drama "Mercy."(NBC, 8 p.m.)

THURSDAY

"The Vampire Diaries" raids the costume closet for a flashback episode, partly set in the 19th century, that explores the origins of the bad blood between blood-sucking brothers Stefan and Damon (Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder). (KTLA, 8 p.m.)

FRIDAY

Our hero (Andy Whitfield) is a bit raw about being low gladiator on the totem pole, while Lucretia and Ilithyia (Lucy Lawless, Viva Bianca) scope out the beefcake at a pre-fight bacchanal, on the sexy sword-and-sandal drama "Spartacus: Blood and Sand."(Starz, 10 p.m.)

SATURDAY

The new docudrama "Temple Grandin" profiles a woman (Claire Danes, below left) whose personal struggle with autism led to more compassionate treatment for those with the often misunderstood mental and emotional disorder. (HBO, 8 p.m.)

OUR OWN DEVICES

If we weren't simultaneously texting on our cellphones, updating our status on Facebook and watching TV on Hulu, we'd have time to tell you that the newsmagazine "Frontline" thinks we are fast becoming a "Digital Nation." Go figure. (KCET, 9 p.m. Tue.)

WE ARE FAMILY

In the new special "A Family Is a Family Is a Family: A Rosie O'Donnell Celebration," the former talk-show host introduces viewers to families, including her own, that fall outside the classic definition of a mom, a dad and 2.5 kids. (HBO, 7 p.m. Sun.)

THERE'S THE BEEF

Two local institutions -- Huell Howser and In-N-Out Burger -- come together when the affable TV host takes a tasty look at the storied fast-food chain on a new edition of "California's Gold." Bring us back a Double-Double, please. (KCET, 7 p.m. Sun.)
