Just a week before the Super Bowl, Jane Fonda, Sally Field, Rita Moreno, and Lily Tomlin star in the movie 80 for Brady, about four women of a certain age who go to the big game to see their favorite quarterback and get caught up in all kinds of shenanigans.

Pamela Anderson is trying to reclaim the narrative about her life and career with the Netflix documentary Pamela, a love story, where she addresses everything from her relationships to that infamous sex tape.

Beyoncé, Adele, Harry Styles, Bad Bunny, Brandi Carlile, and more could all go home with Grammys on Sunday — Trevor Noah hosts.

Plus, the debut of On My Block spin-off series Freeridge, the debut of Jason Katims' new series Dear Edward starring Connie Britton and Taylor Schilling, the debut of the Freeform series The Watchful Eye, EW takes over the newest episode of Hell's Kitchen, and the streaming premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
