Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Thursday, January 11. All times are Eastern.

Top picks

23rd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards (The CW, 8 p.m.): Join first-time awards show emcee Olivia Munn as she takes us through the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s 2018 picks for best TV and film. The Shape Of Water’s in good shape with 14 nominations, including a Best Actress nod for the radiant Sally Hawkins. Meanwhile, Feud’s several nominations will pit Alfred Molina against Stanley Tucci in the supporting actor, TV movie or limited series category, while Judy Davis and Jackie Hoffman will compete against each other—as well as Laura Dern, Regina King, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead—in the corresponding supporting actress race. But it looks like the BFCA didn’t want history to repeat itself, as only Jessica Lange is up for best actress, TV movie or limited series, for her role as Joan Crawford. Better luck next time, Susan Sarandon and Bette Davis’ ghost.


Regular coverage

The Good Place (NBC, 8:30 p.m.)

Will & Grace (NBC, 9 p.m.)

Great News (NBC, 9:31 p.m.)

Top Chef (Bravo, 10 p.m.)

Wild card

Superstore (NBC, 8 p.m.): This year’s Golden Globes have already come and gone in real life, but if you feel the need to reminisce already, Amy (America Ferrera) hosts her own Globes party on tonight’s episode of Superstore. And look, it is definitely not just a desperate attempt to show how well she’s doing post-divorce, even if she does end up needing some help from Jonah (Ben Feldman).
