Billy the Exterminator
 (New Season)

There is a dark, frightening underbelly to New Orleans, a place where dirty, icky creatures wander about — and we’re not talking about drunken tourists puking all over Bourbon Street. In this reality series, Billy and Ricky Bretherton make a living by clearing out the city’s myriad pests, everything from bugs to rats to alligators. In the fifth-season premiere, Billy tracks a deadly rattlesnake that’s wound up in someone’s backyard, and then gets into a tussle with a 15-foot-long python.


5 p.m. & Midnight, Space

The evil Morgana finds a way to use Merlin’s magical powers against his will as a weapon against Arthur.

The Legacy of 
Jim Croce

Thirty-year-old folk-singer Jim Croce was on the cusp of big-time fame, with eight top-40 singles in a span of just two years, when a plane crash tragically cut his life short. This hour-long special compiles a number of Croce’s television appearances in the early 1970s, many of which haven’t been seen in their entirety since their original broadcast. Croce’s widow, Ingrid, and son, A.J., provide commentary.

Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown

8 p.m., ABC

The entire Peanuts gang experiences romantic troubles in this 1975 special in which Charlie Brown mistakenly believes he’ll be getting enough Valentine’s Day cards to fill a briefcase, while Linus has an unrequited crush on his teacher.

Lisa Lampanelli: Long Live the Queen

The undisputed Queen of Mean casts a spell of hilarious offensiveness over her audience with this one-hour stand-up special for anyone who didn’t get enough racist, sexist and other types of “ist” jokes from her various celebrity roast appearances. Consider yourself warned.
