5 must-see TV events
Year of Awesome 2016

01/07/16



Whether you’re looking forward to the return of your favorite paranormal investigators, Mulder and Skully, or a live musical rendition of the 1970s classic Grease, the first few months of 2016 have a lot to offer on the small screen. Here’s a look at some of the biggest deals on television.

 
Tune in to the 21st Annual Critics Choice Awards at 8 p.m. on Jan. 17. It will be simulcast on cable channels A&E, Lifetime and LMN. Unlike in previous years where the film and television categories were separate, they will be combined this year in a single three-hour event. The television and movie awards event will be hosted by comedian and actor T.J. Miller.
 
Want to believe? Follow former federal agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully down the rabbit hole of government conspiracies, monsters and extraterrestrial encounters with a six-episode series event marking the return of the X-Files. The original series aired from 1993 to 2002 with more than 200 episodes. Original actors David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their roles and the show’s creator, Chris Carter, is taking the helm. The first episode will air on Fox immediately following the NFC Championship Game, but following episodes will air Mondays at 8 p.m. starting Jan. 24.
 
Watch a young ensemble cast bring the story of Grease back to life with a live musical television event on the Fox network on Jan. 31. Julianne Hough plays Rydell High’s newcomer, Sandy, while Aaron Tveit plays bad boy Danny Zuko and Vanessa Hudgens plays troublemaker Rizzo. Grease: Live is based on the 1971 musical Grease.
 
It’s Super Bowl 50, happening Sunday, Feb. 7, and airing on CBS. This Super Bowl will decide the top NFL team at the San Francisco 49ers Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The stadium was chosen since it is the league’s “golden anniversary.” Also, since the the roman numeral of 50 is an awkwardly solitary “L,” the branding will break from tradition and go with the Arabic numerals this year.
 
The 88th Academy Awards will air on ABC at 8:30 p.m. Feb. 28 to decide the past year’s best picture, actor, actress and more. Chris Rock is hosting.
