• THE 55TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS — Yes, we want to see who takes home the trophies during “music’s biggest night,” but mostly we crave the performances and the offbeat pairings of artists (such as Alicia Keys and Maroon 5) on stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Oh, and we also want someone to explain the difference between record of the year and song of the year. LL Cool J hosts. 7 p.m., CBS.
Other good bets
• Let the splatterfest resume. “The Walking Dead” kicks off the second half of its marvelous third season, and we’re pretty sure that the incensed Governor (David Morrissey) will want an eye for an eye. 10 p.m., AMC.
