The next big LIVE musical is Rent, and the stars of that production better hope they’re not up for any Screen Actors Guild Awards, because they won’t be there to accept one; Chris Pine reunites with the creative team behind Wonder Woman for a six-part thriller that ties into the real-life Black Dahlia murder; CTV’s reality music competition, The Launch, returns; and if you’re hooked on American politics, The Circus is the ultimate look at the past week in Washington. Something for almost everyone on this relatively quiet week before the Super Bowl. Happy Viewing.
