Jan. 28: Working Class is a new comedy that has a blue-collar single mom (Melissa Peterman) moving her family into an upscale suburb. As per TV sitcom requirements, the show contains a grouchy old neighbor (Ed Asner). 8 p.m., CMT.

Jan. 29: Those of you who thought Skating With the Stars was too fake and cheesy might want to check out the real thing; the U.S. Figure Skating Championships are held in Greensboro, N.C. On tap tonight: the women's final. 9 p.m., NBC.

Jan. 30: For the second straight year, the NFL gives us a game on the off week between the conference championships and the Super Bowl. The Pro Bowl, the NFL's all-star game between players who did not make it to the Super Bowl, gives us a little bit of football fluff before things get serious between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers next week. Bad news for Animation Domination fans is that both games are on Fox, so that'll be two Sundays in a row without The Simpsons, Family Guy, etc. 7 p.m., Fox.

Jan. 30: Can't wait a month for the Oscars? You can get a Hollywood self-congratulatory fix with the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. 8 p.m. TNT and TBS.

Jan. 30: The latest PBS Masterpiece sensation comes to an end with the final episode of Downton Abbey. But fear not, fans. The show was such a smash, the Crawley family and its servants will be back for a second season in England, and PBS will no doubt bring them back across the pond. 9 p.m., KET.
