PopWatch Planner: The Grammys, 'Die Hard' lives, and 'The Following' kills
We made it through the blizzard! That means it’s time to warm up and dry off with a week of musical performances and Bruce Willis blowing things up.
That and several other post-disater to-dos for this week’s planner. Don’t forget to tell us what we missed.
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards, 8 p.m., CBS
It’s The Grammy’s, that really big awards show that doesn’t involve James Franco trying to do everything. Instead, advance buzz is building for a double-shot of Mumford & Sons, whether or not fun. will be anointed as the new Band of America, and the return of Timberlake.

The Amazing Race, 8 p.m., CBS
