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.
