Thursday 7

“Community” (KOB-4 7 p.m.) “Community” finally makes it back on the air for its long-awaited fourth season. With graduation looming in the storyline, don’t expect the show to stick around too long.

“Guinness World Records Gone Wild” (truTV 6 p.m.) Ordinary people try to break world records live on TV. Dan Cortese of “MTV Sports,” “The Rock N’ Jock B-Ball Jam” and “Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant” fame hosts.

Friday 8

“The Job” (KRQE-13 7 p.m.) Five candidates compete for an assistant manager position with the Palm Restaurant Group. … So now we’re just broadcasting job interviews and calling it reality TV?

“Alaska Fish Wars” (Nat Geo Wild 8 p.m.) Enough with the fishing shows already!

“Something Borrowed, Something New” (TLC 8 p.m.) Enough with the shopping for wedding dresses shows already!

“The Jenny McCarthy Show” (VH1 8:30 p.m.) Today’s topic: Vaccinations give your kids autism. Tomorrow’s topic: How Jim Carrey screwed me over. The next day: Back to that vaccine thing.

Saturday 9

“The Grammys Will Go On: A Death in the Family” (KRQE-13 8 p.m.) A look back at the 2012 Grammy Awards. Hey, at least Whitney Houston’s death gave them a theme to work with.

“Odd Folks Home” (Science 7:30 p.m.) Edgar Oliver, the weird customer who drops by “Oddities” every once in a while, hosts this new show about people’s freaky collections.

Sunday 10

“BAFTA Film Awards 2013” (BBC America 6 p.m.) Awards show season is in full swing, people. Get used to it.

“The 55th Annual Grammy Awards” (KRQE-13 7 p.m.) LL Cool J hosts. Justin Timberlake performs. Boom.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome (Syfy 7 p.m.) “Battlestar Galactica” is rapidly becoming the show that wouldn’t die. Here, Syfy airs its surprisingly good web series about a young Bill Adama battling Cylons as a hotshot Viper jockey.

“Gypsy Sisters” (TLC 7 p.m.) Seriously, TV? Why not just let Gypsies and the Amish fight it out in an arena for the title of ethnic/religious stereotype du jour. Loser takes on Rednecks and Guidos for second place.

“The Walking Dead” (AMC 7 p.m.) All right, let’s get this Rick vs. The Mayor rumble started!

“Car Lot Rescue” (Spike TV 8 p.m.) Like “Bar Rescue” only with car lots. … You asked.

Monday 11

“The BET Honors” (BET 7 p.m.) BET hands out awards to Halle Berry, Chaka Khan and other prominent African-Americans.

“Hall of Game Awards” (Cartoon Network 8 p.m.) Cartoon Network, for some reason, hands out awards to professional athletes. Makes less sense than the BET thing.

“Bang Goes the Theory” (BBC America 8:20 p.m.) “Mythbusters” meets science magazine in this “hands on” BBC series.

Tuesday 12

“The 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show” (USA 6 p.m.) Westminster has added two new breeds this year: The Russell Terrier and the Treeing Walker Coonhound. I haven’t been this excited since the Cesky Terrier and the American English Coonhound were recognized in 2012!

Wednesday 13

“Survivor” (KRQE-13 7 p.m.) This show has been on so long (26 seasons as of tonight), producers are having to make up locations. Caramoan? Totally fake.
