HOT SPOT(S): Anything but the Super Bowl
February 1, 2009  | By Diane Werts
 
lucy harpo marx.jpgBurned out on Super Bowl before it starts? We've found some quality TV alternatives to that pigskin thing. You know there's a winner among Hugh Laurie, Lucille Ball, Kyra Sedgwick, Tony Shalhoub or Tony Soprano.


Sunday's marathon alternatives include:


  • Monk (6 a.m.-6 a.m. ET, Sleuth) -- Tony Shalhoub solves murder cases but not his own compulsive problems.
  • I Love Lucy (8:30 a.m.-3 a.m. ET, Hallmark) -- Among the all-time classics showcased here is Harpo Marx'' "mirror" routine at 5 p.m. and 2:30 a.m. ET.
  • House (11 a.m.-4 a.m. ET, USA) -- Hugh Laurie diagnoses medical mysteries but not his own misanthropy.
  • The Closer (noon-11 p.m. ET, TNT) -- Kyra Sedgwick breaks down crooks and takes home awards.
  • The Sopranos (noon-midnight ET, A&E) -- The final season of the Jersey "family" drama wends toward . . . you know.
  • CSI (noon-4 a.m. ET, Spike) -- Two-parters are in the spotlight, including Grave Danger (buried alive) 4-6 p.m. and midnight; A Bullet Runs Through It (friendly fire?) 6-8 p.m.; Built to Kill (Cirque du Soleil) 8-10 p.m., and Living Doll/Dead Doll (Sara kidnaped) 10 p.m.-midnight, all times ET.
  • The Andy Griffith Show (7-10 p.m. ET, TV Land) -- This show takes place pre-Super Bowl era. But you know what the men of Mayberry would be watching.
