It’s a bustle of premieres, returns, and hiatuses in the entertainment world this week — not to mention a new Zac Efron movie! Our advice after an emotionally draining week: for every dark piece of entertainment, balance it with two pieces of light.

From prom in Mystic Falls, to Tom Cruise’s new Sci-fi adventure, we’ve got your pop culture planner for the week. Check it out below! READ FULL STORY
The weather is warming up, the brown things are turning green, and it’s time to watch some baseball. Or, if stadiums aren’t your thing, watch some baseball in a dark theater on a giant screen. Advance word on the Jackie Robinson flick 42 is quiet, though the First Family loves it.
The buzz on 42 – plus other things the White House has yet to approve for your week — below.
You probably don’t remember, but New York was covered in snow the last time I put together the PopWatch Planner. (Sorry, y’all.) To the rest of the country: enjoy what I assume is wonderfully warm weather.
If you still need a little heat, just watch Jennifer Love Hewitt in the season premiere of The Client List. That, and other suggestions, after the jump.
How many times have you heard “I can’t believe it’s March” this week? Well, one more time, “I can’t believe it’s March!” The Oscars are over, the college basketball brackets aren’t even out yet, and it’s going to be a while before May sweeps begin. In the meantime, Justin Timberlake is hosting Saturday Night Live again, Rachel Zoe returns, and our cover stars from Oz The Great and Powerful are hitting the big screen. Here is our list of to watch this week to beat March Madness (Look, we don’t really watch sports). Have a great week!

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.
Once a year, America puts aside its preference for tasteful understatement and simple pleasures to celebrate everything that is good and loud about sports, television, violence, capitalism, and patriotism. It’s called the Super Bowl — a super… bowl — the clumsy but perfectly christened title for an American manufactured spectacular. The Ravens meet the 49ers tonight in New Orleans, but regardless of the outcome, the commercials will be analyzed, the enormous television audience will be documented, and the buffalo wings will be picked clean.
Check out our other picks for the week below and tell us what you’re watching. Have a great week!
Super Bowl XLVII, CBS, 6:30 p.m.
The Baltimore Ravens will face off against the San Francisco 49ers in the most-watched television event of the year. More than 100 million viewers will likely tune in to see which Harbaugh brother will hoist the Lombardi Trophy, to watch Beyoncé perform at halftime, and, of course, to see all the dazzling 30-second commercials that companies shelled out $4 million to air. (That’s $133,333 per second.) READ FULL STORY
On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President Barack Obama will take his second oath of office. Find out what else is on our pop culture radar this week below!
This week, we’ll ring in the new year and three shows will have their third season premieres — including the highly anticipated Downton Abbey. Find out what else is on our PopWatch planner below!
The holidays are a welcome gift for overworked PopWatchers. Now is the time to catch up on all those movies the critics have already crowned Oscar contenders, or marathon a TV show on Blu-ray before the new season kicks in — Downton Abbey season 3 starts Jan. 6! — or simply track down a show you’ve been reading great things about. In the theater, Quentin Tarantino’s bloody Django Unchained, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a sadistic villain, promises to be a jolly good time when it premieres on Christmas Day. Let’s put him on the Naughty list.
Check out what else is stuffed in this week’s PopWatch stocking.

In his defiant press conference on Friday, National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre blamed the media for last week’s school massacre in Newtown, Conn., and suggested that American schools should have armed guards. Since he didn’t answer any questions, his sitdown with David Gregory on Sunday morning’s most hallowed political talkshow takes on even greater interest and will most certainly set the political agenda for the week ahead.
