TV THIS WEEK: Super Bowl LVI, Boba Fett finale, Resident Alien, Astrid & Lilly, Star Trek & more

From the Big Game, to big Star Wars finales, to big alien doomsday plans - let's dig in.

The Big Game is upon us, and with it will almost certainly come some high-profile commercials and trailers for plenty of big ol' genre properties and A-list stars.

NBC is airing the Super Bowl this year, which should hopefully make for a great game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams. If you're not into the sports ball, there's also the commercials and halftime show. So, a little something for everyone.

The most recent live action Star Wars series comes to an end this week, as The Book of Boba Fett looks to wrap up its storyline (as well as a few crossover arcs from The Mandalorian, apparently). SYFY has new episodes of Resident Alien and Astrid & Lilly Save the World, and Paramount Plus has the midseason premiere of Star Trek: Discovery. That one will certainly tide us over until the premiere of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds a few months later.

Digging a bit deeper, NBC and Peacock have the Winter Olympics on tap daily; Netflix has a new batch of episodes from Matt Groening's Disenchantment; Disney+ has a making-of special for Hawkeye; HBO Max has a new Peacemaker, plus a new Raised by Wolves. Arrowverse fans looking for some superhero action won't find many fresh adventures this week, as The CW is mostly running re-runs.

Check out the full rundown below.
