Cougar Town


The healing power of music will be on display when British singer Adele performs for the first time since her vocal-chord surgery and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band take the stage after the loss of late, great sax man Clarence Clemons at “The 54th Grammy Awards.” (CBS, 8 p.m.)

Kevin Smith (“Clerks”) is a well-known writer-director and hockey-jersey enthusiast. And he’s also proprietor of Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, a comics-and-collectibles shop that is the setting for the new unscripted series “Comic Book Men.” (AMC, 10 p.m.)


Musician Stevie Wonder, filmmaker Spike Lee, poet Maya Angelou, singer Mariah Carey and WWII’s Tuskegee Airmen are among the African Americans saluted for their cultural contributions when actress Gabrielle Union hosts “BET Honors 2012.” (BET, 9 p.m.)


Grrr! Just in time for Valentine’s Day, it’s the return of those lovely ladies of “Cougar Town.” Former “Friends” star Courteney Cox (above left, with Busy Phillips) heads the cast of this sexy, silly and severely underappreciated sitcom. (ABC, 8:30 p.m.)


Outwit, outplay, outlast … lather, rinse, repeat: “Survivor: One World” is the 24th iteration of the long, long, long-running reality competition. As always, Jeff Probst – a.k.a. “The hobst with the mobst” – presides over the proceedings. (CBS, 8 p.m.)


Everybody loved “Everybody Loves Raymond,” but in Russia? Not so much. That’s what series co-creator Phil Rosenthal discovered when he tried to rework the hit sitcom for Russian TV, as detailed in the 2010 doc “Exporting Raymond.” (HBO, 8 p.m.)


The Oscar-nominated drama “The Help” is also among the motion-picture nominees at “The 43rd NAACP Image Awards,” the civil-rights organization’s annual celebration of African American achievement in entertainment. (NBC, 8 p.m.)


They’ve got a lot to learn: Cameron Diaz, below, is one “Bad Teacher” in the 2011 comedy, and Paul Giamatti is a shady lawyer who volunteers as a high school wrestling coach in the 2011 indie drama “Win Win.” (Starz, 9 p.m.; Cinemax, 10 p.m.)
