Cab Calloway


Will the nearly silent “The Artist” become the first “silent” film to win the Oscar for best picture since the 1927 silent film “Wings” won the very first Oscar for best picture? Find out when Billy Crystal hosts “The 84th Annual Academy Awards.” (ABC, 5:30 p.m.)

1944’s “To Have and Have Not” is the tale of an old rummy (Walter Brennan) who seeks an answer to the eternal question, “Was you ever bit by a dead bee?” There’s also some romantic nonsense involving Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. (KCET, 9 and 11 p.m.)


How blue can you get? B.B. King is among the living blues-music legends featured on “In Performance at the White House.” And hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi, legendary jazzman Cab Calloway, above, is remembered on “American Masters.” (KOCE, 9 and 10 p.m.)


“American Experience”
profiles Pennsylvania’s Amish, and on “Parenthood,” the family celebrates a momentous occasion in the season finale. (KOCE, 8 p.m.; NBC, 10 p.m.)


Blimey! A bevy of beauties from across the Pond will challenge the lovely ladies of the good old U.S. of A. for supermodel supremacy on “America’s Next Top Model: British Invasion,” the latest edition of the Tyra Banks-hosted reality competition. (KTLA, 9 p.m.)


Are you “Awake” — or are you still asleep? Perhaps this is all just a dream. Or maybe you’re just crazy. Such is the existential predicament a grieving police detective (“Harry Potter’s” Jason Isaacs) is faced with in this intriguing new drama. (NBC, 10 p.m.)


Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 science-fiction fable “2001: A Space Odyssey” predicted what we now know to be true — computers want to kill us — while Peter Hyam’s 1984 follow-up “2010” confirmed that it’s hard to make a sequel to a masterpiece. (TCM, 8:30 and 11:15 p.m.)


If you think little girls are all sugar and spice and everything nice, you don’t know “Hanna.” Saoirse Ronan, below, is an assassin-in-training in director Joe Wright’s stylish 2011 thriller. (HBO, 8 p.m.)
