For the 28th season of this great reality competition, 11 new teams of two — all social-media stars — head out on a race around the world, in the hopes of winning the $1 million grand prize. Phil Keoghan is back as the host. Season premiere, 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12, on CBS.
Season 5? Really? Time flies, I guess. Even though there’s no Tim Gunn to be found on this spinoff/companion series, there are plenty of reasons to tune in. We get to watch designers who didn’t make the cut on “Project Runway” return to create, stitch and emotionally break down once again for judges Alyssa Milano, Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman, in hopes of winning the $100,000 grand prize. Make it work! Season premiere, 9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, on Lifetime.
Although he’s been hosting the show for just about a year, this is the first prime time edition of the show with Corden at the helm, and you can expect lots of “big game” related bits and chatter. Scheduled guests include Zac Efron; Anna Kendrick; Adam DeVine and Elton John (singing “carpool karaoke”!). 8:35 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 7, on CBS.
The folks at Fox are hoping you still believe and are willing to once again follow agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson) in this six-episode revival of the landmark 1993-2002 sci-fi series. Many of those involved with the original series — on both sides of the camera — are back (Chris Carter, Darin Morgan, Mitch Pileggi, William B. Davis), so this could be a lot of creepy/paranoid fun. 7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 24, on Fox.
