This week's TV Movies  

 



 

SUNDAY

So the Lakers are having a lousy season. But teammates Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard will be hitting the court with the rest of the league's best at the "2013 NBA All-Star Game," where singer Alicia Keys will rock the halftime show. (TNT, 5 p.m.)

Billy Campbell has the unenviable task of following in two-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis' footsteps when he portrays our nation's 16th president in "Killing Lincoln," a new docudrama based on the book by Bill O'Reilly. (Nat Geo, 8 and 10 p.m.)

MONDAY

Audrey Hepburn's little black dress in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and John Travolta's white suit in "Saturday Night Fever" are just two of the "Iconic Movie Looks" revisited by "Project Runway's" Tim Gunn, et al., in this new special. (TV Guide, 9 p.m.)

TUESDAY

Robert Knepper plays an actor who plays the leader of a cult on a fictional TV series called "Cult," the show-within-a-show on the new TV series "Cult." It's not as confusing or as sinister as it sounds … or is it? Dunh-dunh-dunh! (KTLA, 9 p.m.)

"After Newtown: Guns in America" examines our nation's relationship with firearms, followed by a profile of Newton shooter Adam Lanza on "Frontline." The next night, "Nova" explores the rampage-shooting phenomenon, followed by the similarly themed special "The Path to Violence" (KOCE, 9 and 10 p.m; also Wed.)

WEDNESDAY

You like them, you really like them: Previous Academy Award winners and current nominees Sally Field and Denzel Washington are among the stars getting "Mad About Oscar With Katie Couric" on a special edition of "20/20." (ABC, 10 p.m.)

THURSDAY

C'mon, boy, go find the IED! Get it! Good boy! Yes, you are! The new special "Glory Hounds" salutes the approximately 600 military working dogs – a.k.a. "MWDs" – deployed with U.S. troops on the battlefields of Afghanistan. (Animal Planet, 8 p.m.)

FRIDAY

Guitar-slinging gospel singer Sister Rosetta Tharpe, below, one of the unsung progenitors of rock 'n' roll, is remembered on a new "American Masters." And the soulful Alabama Shakes and blues-rocker Gary Clark, Jr. get down with their respective bad selves on a new "Austin City Limits." (KOCE, 9 p.m.; KLCS, 9 p.m.)

SATURDAY

Our favorite film from last year, "Beasts of the Southern Wild," is a long-shot to win best picture at the Feb. 24 Academy Awards. But it stands a reasonable chance of taking home the top prize at the "2013 Independent Spirit Awards." (IFC, 10 p.m.)
