Family Guy

Family Guy
9/8c Fox
Hugh Laurie lends his House voice (if not his dignity) to this repeat from last December, in which Peter grabs the reins of Pewterschmidt Industries after Lois' dad, Carter, suffers a heart attack and lapses into a coma (that's where House comes in). Peter's management style certainly won't surprise regular Family Guy viewers, and taxpayers can be relieved that Pewterschmidt Industries didn't receive a bailout. Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons have voice cameos in their Big Bang Theory roles.  — Paul Droesch

Brian Boitano Skating Spectacular
4/3c NBC
Olympic champ Brian Boitano is back for another year of headlining this skating exhibition, this time from Sioux City, Iowa. Sister act Heart is also on tap to perform as top skaters — including Michael Weiss, Steven Cousins, Yuka Sato and Ryan Bradley — hit the ice. — Brie Hearn

The Sound of Music
7/6c ABC
This beloved musical may be a bit on the sugary side, but that never stops us from tuning in to Robert Wise's 1965 extravaganza. Julie Andrews is utterly irresistible as Maria Von Trapp, and hearing her sing those glorious Rodgers and Hammerstein tunes is like listening to liquid crystal. The film won Oscars for Best Picture and for Best Director. Rated G. — Joe Friedrich

Sunday Night Football
8:15/7:15c NBC
The dilapidated Vikings continue to play out their 2010 campaign, taking on the playoff-bound Eagles in Philadelphia. The Vikings have just had one of those seasons where nothing seems to go right, and injuries to key personnel have played a huge part in their woes. Things probably won't get any easier for them against the high-flying Birds, coming off one of the most dramatic victories in franchise history, and starring two of the NFL's most exciting players in Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson. — Dave Roeder

Little Caesars Bowl
8:30/7:30c ESPN
Seven bowls down, 28 to go! That's the tally entering tonight's contest in Detroit, where Florida International (6-6) and Toledo (8-4) go at it in the second of three Sun Belt-vs.-MAC matchups on the bowl schedule. With senior playmaker Eric Page and a disciplined plus-14 turnover margin, the Rockets of Toledo are ready to launch in front of a partisan Ford Field crowd. While Motown ain't quite Pasadena, FIU and coach Mario Cristobal are happy to be in action anywhere this time of year as the Golden Panthers make their bowl debut after posting a 9-39 record the last four years. —Roger Leister

Masterpiece Contemporary
9/8c PBS
Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael may be legendary artists, but they're also Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles — as everyone but snooty curator Quentin Lester (Trevor Eve) could tell you. This family-friendly outing written by Frank Cottrell Boyce (Millions) finds Lester in Wales after a plumbing mishap forces the National Gallery collection to an area mine for safekeeping. He soon meets a boy (Sam Davies) he mistakes for an art aficionado, falls for a teacher — and sees one of the paintings stolen. — Jeff Gemmill

My Kid Survived

Three incredibly lucky — and incredibly brave — kids recount the life-or-death experiences they survived in this one-hour special. Included is the story of a 9-year-old Boy Scout who was forced to endure the freezing wilderness alone after he was left behind on a camping trip; and an 11-year-old girl recalls being lost for four days in alligator-infested swamplands. — Karen Kelty
