PopWatch Planner: SAGs, saying goodbye to '30 Rock,' and the Super Bowl

Bookended by the Screen Actors Guild awards and the Super Bowl, this week has something for everyone, including a cute groundhog named Phil, who with any luck will be getting up early on Saturday with news about warmer weather ahead. There’s also a new zombie flick, the end of a favorite series, and a new one to add to your DVR. Check out our picks for the week below and tell us what you’re watching. Have a great week!

SUNDAY
SAG Awards, TBS and TNT, 8 p.m. ET

One year after the mega-merger of SAG-AFTRA, Hollywood actors gather to honor each other for their work without pesky politics getting in the way. Who will win? Les Misérables and Lincoln lead the film acting nominations; Homeland and Mad Men are favorites for TV. Check back to EW.com for live coverage Sunday night.

MONDAY
RuPaul’s Drag Race season premiere, 9 p.m., Logo

Sashay your way into season 5 of the hit show on Logo.

TUESDAY
Hotel Transylvania out on DVD.

Get spooked by Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg as this new version of Dracula has the famed vampire inviting other ghoulish friends over for a party — fright and animated high jinks ensue.

WEDNESDAY
The Americans premieres, FX, 10 p.m.

Keri Russell flashes back to the ’80s in this new show about Russian spies next door. How retro!

THURSDAY
30 Rock series finale NBC 8 p.m.

It’s really over. Say one final TGS farewell to Liz, Tracy, Jack, Jenna, Kenneth, and the gang.

FRIDAY
Warm Bodies opens in theaters.

The poster tag line reads “guys love a girl with brains” and it couldn’t be more true than in this fun, oddball zombie rom com. Yes, zombie rom com, just go with it.

SATURDAY
Groundhog Day. Again!

It’s Groundhog Day and it’s the weekend, so fire up the DVD player and watch one of the best comedies of all time in honor of Punxsutawney Phil. Bill Murray will make even a dark February day seem brighter. Or get up early and tune in to the real-time news to find out if the groundhog sees his shadow.

SUNDAY
Super Bowl XLVII, CBS, 6:30 p.m.

The Baltimore Ravens will face off against the San Francisco 49ers. With the brother vs. brother coaching showdown and some great playoff games that led up to tonight’s championship, the game is set to be an exciting one. Oh, who are we kidding, we’re in it for Beyoncé and the commercials.

Your favorite TV shows just got hotter: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, and Doctor Who have been given a makeunder by a New York City burlesque troupe.

GoT played in her mind during her unconscious state and she channeled the character Tyrion Lannister during her risqué performance.
