Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ series took the week off to accommodate President Ellis Obama’s State of the Union address, but next Tuesday will see Peggy back in action, with Howard Stark in tow as thumbs circle “The Blitzkrieg Button.” See the return of Iron Man’s pappy and a mysterious new villain in the first photos from next week’s ‘Agent Carter!’
FX’s ‘Archer’ has sustained plenty of impressive guest voices over the years, but rarely does the script flip to see the rest of the world become animated. That said, watch Conan O’Brien get a sexual thrill out of killing in an ‘Archer’-ized short against Russian mobsters!
‘SNL’’s choice to follow up Kevin Hart’s 2015 premiere hosting with ‘The Voice’ coach and newbie Blake Shelton pulling double duty seemed a risky venture, but the Southern singer fits in just fine by his first promos with cast member Cecily Strong. Watch Shelton get his obligatory chair-spin (and call out that punk Adam Levine) in our first look at this weekend’s ‘SNL!’
‘Justified’’s 6th and final season takes aim with its 1st 2015 installment in “Fate’s Right Hand,” as Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) presses Ava and a freed Dewey Crowe to turn on Boyd, while the man himself plans a daring bank robbery for his new employers.

Martin fantasy drama has released a new trailer for its forthcoming IMAX presentation, unboxing a brand-new bit of footage from season 5 to boot!
Sony PlayStation’s forthcoming entry into the original content arms race, ‘Powers’ has flexed plenty of footage and photos of its impending premiere, but with little sense of how the Brian Michael Bendis superhero drama would be rolled out.
