Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Friday, February 9 and Saturday, February 10. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (Friday, The CW, 8 p.m.): Several surprises arose during last week’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: There was a time jump, Home Base received some major renovations, and Nathaniel pledged himself to Rebecca—before she bailed on him. And then, in the preview for tonight’s episode: Trent! Trent? Yes! “Trent?!” An episode title, and a truly appropriate exclamation, as Crazy Ex-Girlfriend barrels toward its third-season end game with an assist from Paul Welsh’s smiling, turtlenecked blackmail artist, the depths of whose obsessions puts Rebecca’s to shame. Though, really, he’s the one who should be ashamed. Allison Shoemaker is still happy to see this goony weirdo anyhow.


Regular coverage

Jane The Virgin (Friday, The CW, 9 p.m.)

Wild card

Olympics 2018: Prime Time: Opening Ceremony (Friday, NBC, 8 p.m.): The competing nations gather in Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium, though the assembled athletes will probably be wishing they’re gathered around the Olympic flame. Don’t know if you’ve heard, but it’s cold over there.
