What TV shows we should watch this weekend


Your TV watching should be geared around Sunday’s Academy Awards though you should DVR Disovery’s documentary about Argo on Saturday. Here’s what you need to watch.


Spartacus @ 9pm, Starz: The possible infiltration of a Roman spy causes tension to mount between Spartacus and the men under his command.

Nikita @ 8pm, The CW
: The CIA director gets assassinated. Sounds like a job for Maggie Q.


Argo: Inside Story @ 10pm, Discovery: Bryan Cranston narrates this wonderful documentary of the real Argo.

Georgetown-Syracuse @ 4pm, CBS: One of the last times we’ll see this classic Big East battle.


The 85th Annual Academy Awards @ 8:30: Not sure if I would call this must-watch but it’s good for Twitter fodder.

Shameless @ 9pm, Showtime
: Why is this show on as the time as the Oscars? Does Showtime hate its viewers?

Daytona 500 @ 12, FOX
: I mean, I guess, if that’s your thing.
