What to Watch This Week | February 6–12’s consummate viewing recommendations for shows, movies, sports, and more on TV this week.

Regarding the upcoming Super Bowl LVII (meaning 57): Why are we still using Roman numerals in 2023? It’s actually somewhat surprising that no patriotic groups have boycotted the NFL for failing to use “American” numbers. Get that conversation going at your Super Bowl party this weekend and see what happens.

This week’s What to Watch recs include (of course) the Super Bowl, a new season of South Park, the returns of You and C.B. Strike, the debut of Gina Rodriguez sitcom Not Dead Yet, and the romantic comedy threesome of Your Place or Mine, Somebody I Used to Know, and At Midnight. Snuggle up with some TV!

What’s premiering this week

South Park | Comedy Central | Animation, comedy

Season 26 premiere, Wednesday, February 8: Over 26 years of South Park, we’ve learned a couple of things. For one, Kenny never dies. Two, show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone rarely give any hints about what’s going to happen in a new season. A return to kid-focused storylines would be great, as would finally burning down Tegridy Farms (sorry, Randy). South Park has been renewed through Season 30, so there’s plenty of time to get back to basics.

What to watch on Netflix this week

You | Netflix | Drama

Season 4 premiere, Thursday, February 9: Just in time for Valentine’s Day, everybody’s favorite stalker/serial killer/identity chameleon Joe (Penn Badgley) is back. This time around, he’s posing as a university professor in London as he keeps tabs on Marienne (Tati Gabrielle) after her escape last season—romantic, no? Continuing its trend of being annoying (ugh, password sharing), Netflix is releasing five of 10 episodes of You this month, with the final five arriving in March.

You (Netflix)

Your Place or Mine | Netflix | Comedy, romance

Movie premiere, Friday, February 10: Ashton Kutcher returns to the rom-com game with Your Place or Mine, the story of two best friends (Kutcher and Reese Witherspoon) who live on opposite ends of the country. When they swap their respective homes in Los Angeles and New York for a week, they realize that . . . they’ve been in love for decades? Your Place or Mine comes from the writer of The Devil Wears Prada and 27 Dresses, so just trust the process.

C.B. Strike: Troubled Blood | HBO, HBO Max | Drama, thriller

Season 5 premiere, Monday, February 6: British import C.B. Strike is based on the book series by Robert Galbraith (a J.K. Rowling pseudonym), following the cases of Cormoran Blue Strike (Tom Burke), an ex-military investigator turned private detective. In the four-episode Troubled Blood, Strike and business partner/unrequited love interest Robin Ellacott (Holliday Grainger) are hired to locate a woman who disappeared in 1974.

Harley Quinn | HBO Max | Animation, comedy

Special premiere, Thursday, February 9: The full title is Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine’s Special, and Harley (voiced by Kaley Cuoco) and her girlfriend Poison Ivy (Lake Bell) are more than capable of delivering on it. During their first Valentine’s Day together, Harley and Ivy accidentally unleash a “love spell” over Gotham, causing the entire city to get hot and horny—what could go wrong? As you should already know, this DC cartoon is not for the kiddies.

What to watch on Hulu this week

Not Dead Yet | ABC, Hulu | Comedy

Series premiere, Wednesday, February 8: Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) returns to TV in Not Dead Yet, an adaptation of the Alexandra Potter book Confessions of a 40-Something F**k Up (ABC opted for a different title). Rodriguez stars as Nell, a recently single and broke woman looking for a fresh start at a SoCal newspaper as an obituary writer. Borrowing a trick from Ghosts, only Nell can see and speak with the spirits she’s writing about; wackiness ensues.

Stolen Youth | Hulu | Documentary

Series premiere, Thursday, February 9: Three-part docuseries Stolen Youth: Inside the Cult at Sarah Lawrence examines the reign of terror of Larry Ray, an ex-con who posed as a campus psychologist and spiritual adviser for 10 years to run an abusive sex cult. Using Ray’s own recording and accounts from survivors, director Zach Heinzerling (McCartney 3, 2, 1) paints a harrowing picture of a monster. On a positive note, Ray was recently sentenced to 60 years in prison.
