What’s on TV This Week: ‘Vanderpump Rules’ and the Grammys


Between network, cable and streaming, the modern television landscape is a vast one. Here are some of the shows, specials and movies coming to TV this week, Jan. 29-Feb. 4. Details and times are subject to change.

BAD ROMANCE 10 p.m. on ABC. In February 2023, Becky Bliefnick was murdered in her home, and her estranged husband, Tim Bliefnick, was immediately the primary person of interest. Evidence was found in the home and online, but one of the creepiest parts of the case is an appearance Tim made on “Family Feud” years earlier. The question he was asked didn’t seem out of the ordinary: “What’s the biggest mistake you made at your wedding?” His answer: “Honey, I love you, but said, ‘I do.’” This special edition of “20/20” takes a deeper look at the case.

VANDERPUMP RULES 8 p.m. on Bravo. I will always choose “Below Deck” over anything else in the Bravo universe, but I can humbly admit that this season premiere is going to be one of the network’s biggest must-watch moments all year. After “Scandoval” set the reality-television world aflame, this is the first chance to check back in with Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix (minus Rachel Leviss, who has left the show). With Madix headed to Broadway to play Roxie in “Chicago” and Tom Schwartz coming off a slight character-redeeming run on “Winter House,” I personally can’t wait to see more drama unfold.

FEUD 10 p.m. on FX. Ryan Murphy is back at it with another season of his anthology series. When the show debuted in 2017, it focused on a feud between the actresses Joan Crawford and Bette Davis that exploded when they filmed “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” This season, subtitled “Capote vs. the Swans,” focuses on the fallings-out that the writer Truman Capote had with New York City socialites, including Ann Woodward, Babe Paley and C.Z. Guest.

FARMER WANTS A WIFE 9 p.m. on Fox. The second season, hosted by the singer and actress Jennifer Nettles, is bringing 32 “city girls” to the countryside to meet four single farmers to hopefully create a match. Look, it’s definitely not conventional (and might not be particularly successful), but I’ve read enough novels with the “big city girl moves to a small town and falls in love” trope that I’m willing to suspend my disbelief — for now.

KOKOMO CITY 9 p.m. on Showtime. This documentary, which made its theatrical debut over the summer, follows the stories of four Black and transgender sex workers in Georgia and New York. “One by one, the interviewees — Daniella Carter, Koko Da Doll, Liyah Mitchell and Dominique Silver — share candid stories of how they sustain themselves in a profession whose clients can quickly turn toward violence,” Teo Bugbee wrote in her review for The New York Times. The danger they can face was made devastatingly evident when Koko Da Doll was fatally shot in April 2023, months before the documentary aired at Sundance.

HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS 9:15 p.m. on Freeform. Ah, the golden era of romantic comedies — I miss it! (Though I will say that “Anyone but You” gave me those same butterflies that a good 2000s rom-com does). This one stars Matthew McConaughey as Ben Barry, who bets his friends that he can make any woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Simultaneously, Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) is writing a column about how to make a man leave you in 10 days. Of course, their goals directly clash as they set their sights on each other. Chaos (along with some lingering glances and light flirtation, of course) ensues.

THE GRAMMY AWARDS 8 p.m. on CBS. As someone who helps cover a lot of awards shows, I could argue that the Grammys is one of the most enjoyable to watch. Why? Because only a few awards are handed out, and there are many fun performances. This year Billy Joel, Olivia Rodrigo and Luke Combs are scheduled to perform, and Dua Lipa and Billie Eilish are pulling double duty — both are set to perform and each is nominated for their respective songs in “Barbie.” SZA has the most nominations of the night (nine), all for her album “SOS.” Jon Batiste, boygenius, Brandy Clark, Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift each has six nominations.

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM 10 p.m. on HBO. After 11 seasons and a six-year hiatus, this series starring Larry David as a version of himself is airing its final season. “As ‘Curb’ comes to an end, I will now have the opportunity to finally shed this ‘Larry David’ persona and become the person God intended me to be — the thoughtful, kind, caring, considerate human being I was until I got derailed by portraying this malignant character,” David said in a statement.
