Awards season continues this week with the Oscars, “Premio Lo Nuestro” and the “Independent Spirit Awards.” Meanwhile, Syfy airs a new original movie, and that reminds me — three words you’ll never hear on any awards show, ever, are “Syfy original movie.” Here’s what to watch and what to avoid on television this week:
“The Food Hospital” 8 p.m., Cook: Put me in ICU — the ice cream unit.
“Inside Comedy” 10 p.m., Showtime: Comic/writer Tina Fey and writer/director Judd Apatow guest.
“Cult” 8 p.m., CW: Fans of a TV series about a fictional cult get a little too into it — sort of like fans of Oprah.
“Body of Proof” 9 p.m., ABC: Megan’s back for a third season, and she’s after a serial killer who’s holding her daughter captive.
“Criminal Minds” 8 p.m., CBS: In Austin, the crew finds that murder victims’ watches all show the wrong time. And they’re all probably wearing hats and ironic T-shirts, too.
“Top Chef” 9 p.m., Bravo: Part one of the season finale airs.
“The Americans” 9 p.m. FX: The American agents wonder if the Russians are behind the attempted Reagan assassination.
“Necessary Roughness” 9 p.m., USA: Season 2 concludes tonight.
“My Strange Addiction” 9:30 p.m., TLC: A subject’s been eating sand for five years. I wonder if that was the main course or the desert — I mean, uh, “dessert.”
“Extreme Couponing” 7 p.m., DFH: Tonight’s second-season opener was supposed to be an hour long, but they got 50 percent off.

“2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards” 9 p.m., IFC: Former “Saturday Night Live” star Andy Samberg wears his digital shorts to the stage as host of this annual celebration of independent film.
“The Oscars Red Carpet Live” 7 p.m., ABC: Who am I wearing? Well, my dog’s on the couch with me, and he has his head draped over my ankles. Does that count?
“85th Annual Academy Awards” 7:30 p.m., ABC: How far into the broadcast before first-time host and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane breaks into a nervous Stewie voice? Barbra Streisand, Adele and Norah Jones perform.
