Sunday TV Picks: ‘Downton Abbey’ returns to KCTS
TV picks for Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014, include “Downton Abbey” on KCTS, “The Simpsons” on Fox and “The Good Wife” on CBS.
Tonight in Prime Time
After last season’s devastating finale, many fans vowed to never watch Julian Fellowes’ hit series again. That would be a shame, because Season 4 has a lot of great stuff in store for devotees, including great work from Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael, Joanne Froggatt and Penelope Wilton. The year is now 1922, and the new season begins in the dead of night, with someone leaving Downton in a hurry. Welcome back, Sunday night TV obsession. 9 p.m. Sunday on KCTS (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
