Chris Rock should shake things up a bit as host of this annual awards ceremony that honors achievements in film. I’m fairly certain “The Revenant” will take a lot of the awards, and I can’t wait for Rock’s opening monologue. Red carpet coverage begins at 4 p.m., ceremony is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 28, on ABC

How best to describe this new Louis C.K.-produced comedy? It concerns Chip Baskets (Zach Galifianakis), a man who wants to be a French clown but can’t speak French. He then decides to move home from Paris to Bakersfield, Calif., where he becomes a rodeo clown. And his family is a sight to behold (he has a twin brother, and his mother is played by Louie Anderson). The words eccentric or quirky seem inadequate, So let’s go with tres magnifique. 10 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25, on FX.

When this wonderfully strange legal drama premiered last year, fans of “Breaking Bad” hoped that this prequel would fill the void. But watching Bob Odenkirk’s idealistic Jimmy McGill slowly become “Breaking Bad’s” Saul Goodman is an embarrassment of TV riches. Also, great supporting work from Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean and Rhea Seehorn. Season premiere, 10 p.m. Monday, Feb. 15, on AMC.
If you’re not in the mood for flowers on Valentine’s Day, you might want to spend time with Rick Grimes and the gang as they attempt to escape the zombie-overrun community of Alexandria. It’s not to everyone’s taste, but this is gripping, must-see TV. Midseason premiere, 9 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 14, on AMC.
