What to Watch the Week of February 13: ‘Mrs. Maisel’ Returns, Ali Wong’s New Special, and the Puppy Bowl

All the talk today will be on the Los Angeles Rams taking on the Cincinnati Bengals in the Super Bowl (and as a St. Louis native who is still infuriated with Rams owner Stan Kroenke and the NFL, I have two words: Go Bengals). But the real highlight of the week happens on Friday, February 18 when Amazon Prime Video’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel returns. A lot is changing in Midge’s world, including this: After three seasons of Amazon Prime Video releasing all episodes at once, they’ll be dropping only two new episodes each Friday until the finale on March 11. Given that Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino basically create the equivalent of stunning mini-movies each episode, there’s something to be said for savoring each masterpiece. 

Meanwhile, the Winter Olympics head into their last week before the flame is extinguished and the countdown to the 2026 games in the Italian cities of Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo begin. For a full schedule of remaining events, click here

And with that, here’s what to watch the week of February 13!

Sunday, February 13

Super Bowl LVI (NBC, Peacock): The biggest, though not necessarily the best, game of the year airs tonight from Los Angeles, with country star Mickey Guyton singing the national anthem and Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, and Dr. Dre performing in the halftime show. If you tune in for the commercials more than anything, just wait until you see Zendaya sporting a stunning seashell dress in her first Super Bowl ad on behalf of Squarespace. 6 P.M. ET/3 P.M. PT

Puppy Bowl (Animal Planet/Discovery+): The only competition I care about today. Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg return to coach the Puppy Bowl, which is in itself a huge feat since if it were left up to me, I’d just be taking photos of these adoral pups all day (check out all the pup-stars here). 2 P.M. ET

Bel-Air (Peacock): NBC will air Olympics coverage after the Super Bowl, but the show with the most post-Super Bowl hype is on their streaming service, Peacock, and it’s none other than Bel-Air. The Will Smith-produced re-imagining of the iconic sitcom stars newcomer Jabari Banks in the lead role and is set in present day. By now you probably know that even though the origin story is the same, there’s a lot that’s different about this re-telling, namely that it’s a hour-long drama and set in the present day.

Ali Wong: Don Wong (Netflix): Comedian Ali Wong releases her third Netflix special, Don Wong, on Valentine’s Day, which was filmed last November. According to the streamer, “Ali reveals her wildest fantasies, the challenges of monogamy, and how she really feels about single people.” (I’ll spoil it for you: We’re amazing). Nahnatchka Khan directs. Streaming.
