Ahead of the curve: Weekly pop culture calendar

Gleeks, the McKinley High glee club will soon be back in action. (Can we all say, "finally"?)

There's been a lot of buzz about this "Thriller"-themed episode that's airing after the Super Bowl tonight - do you think it'll live up to the hype? We'll soon find out!

But that's not all that's happening: Justin Bieber's got a movie, JWoww's got an advice book and Chris Brown is coming to a "Saturday Night Live" near you. Check out what not to miss this week after the jump.

Sunday

  • Before we get to "Glee," you can check out the Puppy Bowl VII on Animal Planet starting at 3 p.m., and then tune in to Super Bowl XLV over on Fox at 6:30 p.m.

Monday

  • Jennifer Beals, Jason Clarke and Don Kress star in Fox's new cop show, "The Chicago Code," premiering at 9 p.m.
  • We've no doubt Katy Perry will light up like a "Firework" in her guest appearance on "How I Met Your Mother" at 8 p.m. on CBS.

Tuesday

  • If "Jersey Shore" hasn't done enough to teach you the fine art of capturing a juicehead's heart, JWoww's got your back: Her book, "The Rules According to JWoww," arrives February 8.
  • Also releasing on Tuesday are a slew of DVDs, including Katherine Heigl's "Life as We Know It"; Tyler Perry's "For Colored Girls"; "Paranormal Activity 2"; and Zach Galifianakis' "It's Kind of a Funny Story."
  • Hey "Glee" stans: Chris Colfer will join Adam Sandler on "Letterman," and over on "The Tonight Show," Javier Bardem will be chopping it up with Jay Leno.

Wednesday

  • Matthew Perry is making a return to primetime TV with "Mr. Sunshine," premiering at 9:30 p.m. on ABC
  • "Friday Night Lights" fans, the end has come: The series finale airs at 9 p.m. on DirecTV's 101 Network. (But if you missed this season, NBC has announced that it will kick off the fifth and final season on Friday, April 15 at 8 p.m.)
  • Later that night, Elton John will both appear and perform on "Letterman" and 50 Cent will drop by "Conan."

Thursday

  • If one hour of "Jersey Shore" just isn't enough, Snooki will be on "Letterman" tonight.

Friday

  • If you're going to the movie theaters this weekend, be prepared for a Belieber takeover: the 16-year-old's film "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" opens on February 11. Also attempting to stay afloat at the box office that weekend: Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler's "Just Go With It" and the animated feature "Gnomeo and Juliet."

Saturday

  • Bring in Saturday night with Russell Brand and Chris Brown, who will be holding it down over on "Saturday Night Live."
