Also on Sunday: Unaired Bowie Profile

image006Sometimes, the profiles they work on for “60 Minutes” (CBS, 8 p.m.) go unfinished or get shelved. A 2003 profile of David Bowie, for example, never made it on air until tonight, two weeks after his death at age 69.

In the interview, recorded in Woodstock, N.Y., the 56-year-old Bowie is in a good place emotionally. “I’ve a great, wonderful domestic life. My public life — songwriting, the recording, performances and all that, side of it — are really enjoyable. They’ve never been so enjoyable. So, I consider myself really a very lucky guy.  I really do.”

The road to the Super Bowl teams will be determined by the winners in the AFC championship of New England at Denver (CBS, 3 p.m.) and NFC championship game of Arizona at Carolina (Fox, 6:40 p.m.), which will be followed by the reboot of “The X-Files” (Fox, 10 p.m., approximately).

Seems like a good use for the final season of “Downton Abbey” on “Masterpiece” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings): old characters come back to visit. Tonight, somebody formerly of the maid staff.

What’s different about “Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry” (E!, 10 p.m.)? Well, the charlatan at the head of it only talks to celebrities including tonight, Jamie Presley, Bella Thorne, NeNe Leakes and John Salley.

The feds may be wanting to move a little too quickly against Bobby Axelrod on “Billions” (Showtime, 9 p.m.). After all, this is only the second episode. They got to stretch a whole series out of this thing.

The two hour season premiere of “Marvel’s Agent Carter” (ABC, 9 p.m.) gets a same week rerun.” The comedy “Bridesmaids” (NBC, 8 p.m.) gets a rare prime time broadcast slot. The only new scripted fare on broadcast TV are two more episodes of “Galavant” (ABC, 8 and 8:30 p.m.).

Hey guess what: “The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth” (Showtime, 8 p.m.) didn’t turn out to be the most groundbreaking political show after all, though it pretends to be. Mostly there’s too much from the smug hosts who also run a kind of “Pardon the Interruption” type show on politics on the Bloomberg network. Tonight they sit down with Chris Christie and get some drive-by quotes from Jeb Bush.

The premiere of “The Real Housewives of Potomac” (Bravo, 9 p.m.) last week was one of the biggest for the franchise.

Why do women sign up for these shows? Well Cynthia of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” (Bravo, 8 p.m.) got booked in an eyewear commercial.

Frank teaches Debbie how to game the welfare system on a new “Shameless” (Showtime, 9 p.m.).

The U.S. Army Rangers 2003 battle to control Haditha Dam in Iraq is the subject of “Live to Tell” (History, 10 p.m.).

Emma helps a wounded friend on the second episode of “Mercy Street” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings).

Not sure what the appeal of shows like “Alaska: The Last Frontier Exposed” (Discovery, 8 p.m.) will be for those under snowbanks on the East Coast. Possibly more appealing: “Beachfront Bargain Hunt” (HGTV, 8 p.m.) or “Caribbean Life” (HGTV, 9:30 p.m.).

They celebrate Thanksgiving on “Work Out New York” (Bravo, 10 p.m.).

Turner Classic Movies looks at race relations in “Lost Boundaries” (8 p.m.) and “No Way Out” (10 p.m.). Then, two silent films about orphans: “Mickey” (midnight) and “The Kid” (TCM, 1:30 a.m.).

Men’s college hoops today include Tulane at Cincinnati (ESPNU, noon), East Carolina at Memphis (CBS Sports, 2 p.m.), Dayton at Fordham (CBS Sports, 4 p.m.), Evansville at Indiana State (ESPNU, 4 p.m.), North Carolina at Virginia Tech (ESPNU, 6:30 p.m.), Syracuse at Virginia (ESPN2, 7 p.m.) and Utah at Washington (ESPNU, 8:30 p.m.).

Women’s games include South Florida at UCF (ESPNU, 2 p.m.), VCU at Richmond (NBC Sports, 3 p.m.), Ohio State at Rutgers (ESPN2, 3 p.m.) and South Carolina at Mississippi State (ESPN2, 5 p.m.).

And the Round of 16 continues at the Australian Open (Tennis, 7 p.m.; ESPN2, 9 p.m.).
