XXII Winter Olympics (NBC at 8 p.m.) coverage includes women’s Alpine skiing with Julia Mancuso as the best bet for a U.S. medal, finals in figure skating (pairs), women’s snowboarding (halfpipe) and men’s speedskating.

Expect two hours of the Hollywood round on “American Idol” (Fox at 8), featuring solo and group performances from contestants who passed the first round of auditions last week.

“Bravo’s Top Ten Dinners From Hell” (Bravo at 8) counts down the network’s most heated dinner parties from its long and tumultuous reality-show past.

A repeat episode of “Modern Family” (ABC at 9) has Phil back into his real estate niche and Luke running a poker tournament out of the basement, while Cameron takes the helm of a pet’s funeral for Lily.

A Boston area restaurateur looks to share his passion for Lebanese-style pies with residents and goes to “Buy This Restaurant” (Food at 9) for help finding the perfect location.

“Super Skyscrapers” (MPT and WETA at 10) looks into the Leadenhall Building in London, which was designed as a tapered tower with a steel exoskeleton. It’s being constructed off-site, delivered to its location and assembled like a giant Lego set.

The guys of “Workaholics” (Comedy Central at 10) set their sights on an attractive local consumer reporter.

Before its season debut March 11, “The Real Housewives of New York City” (Bravo at 10) comes back for a 30-minute sneak peek at Season 6.

In typical “Broad City” (Comedy Central at 10:30) fashion, everything’s a bit of a mess. Abbi bug-bombs her apartment, Ilana loses her keys and the ladies possibly face living on the streets just in time for Abbi’s first art gallery show.

“The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” (Comedy Central at 11) talks to actor Joel Kinnaman from “The Killing” and the new “RoboCop.”

Seth Meyers, new host of “Late Night,” and actress Sarah Paulson come to “Watch What Happens: Live” (Bravo at 11) with host Andy Cohen.

Actors Andy Samberg and Michael B. Jordan stop by the “Late Show With David Letterman” (CBS at 11:35), with a musical performance from Ellie Goulding.

Actress Abbie Cornish is on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (ABC at 11:35), with music from Naughty Boy featuring Sam Smith.
