1 Lynne Palazzi and Chris Raymond are a husband-and-wife editorial team. Palazzi has written and edited for Time Out New York, US Weekly, and Parents. Raymond has worked for Esquire, GQ, Details, and Success. They met at ESPN The Magazine. The couple teamed up to tackle our Super Bowl coverage, profiling The NFL Today host James Brown (“Super Man,” pg. 62) and five of his CBS Sports colleagues (“All Stars,” pg. 74). “I’ve watched JB on Sundays for so long, I felt like I knew him,” says Raymond. “He’s every bit as thoughtful and warm in real life.” Adds Palazzi: “I’m not a huge sports fan. But, after talking to the people who work behind the scenes at CBS, I’m fascinated by the wizardry that goes into a sports broadcast.”…

I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I HAVE NEVER BEEN happier to see the calendar flip to a new year. It’s time for something fun. Something we can watch together, cheer for, and enjoy while eating foods that definitely aren’t part of any healthy New Year’s resolution. (Guacamole counts as a vegetable, right?) On February 7, we will get just what we need to start 2021 off right: Super Bowl LV in Tampa Bay, Florida. And for a record-breaking 10th time, James Brown (“Super Man,” pg. 62) will be at the helm of CBS’s coverage of the big game. This month we sat down with JB to talk about what drives him personally and professionally. His commitment to faith, family, and, yes, football is truly inspiring. For more inspiration, look no further than…

“LOOK OUT, GOTHAM, I’M SUITED UP AND ready to go,” captioned Javicia Leslie on social media, wearing Batwoman’s cape and cowl. Leslie admitted it was “weird” slipping into the suit for the very first time. “I looked in the mirror and said, ‘Wow, like this is real. I’m a superhero!’” she says. “But I also know what this moment represents.” The 33-year-old actress, who identifies as bisexual, is taking the reins of the lesbian crimefighter from Season 1 star Ruby Rose. But Leslie is making history as the first African-American woman to portray Batwoman in a live-action production. Watch caught up with the Arrowverse newcomer. Has the weight of the role dawned on you yet? Do you feel excitement? Pressure? All of the above! To know that this role represents so many…

WE’RE FINALLY GETTING SOME NEW YEAR’S resolutions to last year’s cliffhangers. The CW’s pandemic-delayed “fall” lineup rolled out this month with a pair of newbies: Superman & Lois joins the ever-expanding Arrowverse, while Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki reimagines a ’90s classic (Walker, Texas Ranger). In case you need to jog your memory, here’s a handy refresher of your returning faves. ALL AMERICAN (Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT) WHERE WE LEFT OFF: Star football player Spencer James (Daniel Ezra) transfers from Beverly Hills for his senior year—although his shoulder isn’t 100%.

WHAT OTHER ACTOR CAN CLAIM TO HAVE PLAYED the rangy likes of Kumar Patel, the ultimate stoner horndog of the raunchy Harold & Kumar franchise, the brainy but doomed Dr. Lawrence Kutner of House, as well as White House press secretary Seth Wright of Designated Survivor? Oh, and who also actually worked in D.C. for two years as the Obama administration’s associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement? Only the brilliant Kal Penn can. Now the New Jersey–born, UCLA-degreed son of Gujarati Indian immigrant parents is stepping into Clarice, the new Silence of the Lambs–inspired series. As Shaan Tripathi, a former Smithsonian curator turned FBI agent, Penn and a motley crew of cohorts at the Violent Criminal Apprehension Program [ViCAP] will team up with Clarice Starling as…
