Ellen Gray's weekend TV picks
* THE GABBY DOUGLAS STORY. 8 p.m. Saturday, Lifetime.
Kicking off a month of sports of all sorts, this biopic of Olympic gold medal gymnast Gabby Douglas walks a balance beam of its own, sidestepping the controversy that followed her spectacular performance at the 2012 Olympics but noting some of the challenges she faced in her quest for gold. Douglas (portrayed by both Imani Hakim and Sydney Mikayla) has a cameo, while Regina King plays her mother and S. Epatha Merkerson her grandmother.
* DOWNTON ABBEY. 9 p.m. Sunday, WHYY12.
Counterprogramming's the name of the game this weekend since, believe it or not, millions of Americans won't be watching that football game in North Jersey. Last year's second-most watched show? You guessed it: the one with all the Brits, which is gunning again to be a distant No. 2.
* SHERLOCK. 9:58 p.m. Sunday, WHYY12.
If I hadn't already fallen hard for Amanda Abbington's Mary Watson, this game-changing Season 3 finale would have sealed the deal.
* BROOKLYN NINE-NINE. 11 p.m. Sunday, Fox29.
One of the season's best (and somewhat underwatched) new comedies, set in a New York police precinct and starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is hoping for a Super Bowl bump from its post-game appearance. It follows an episode of "New Girl" that features Prince.
