Around the remote: Chuck Barney's TV picks for Jan. 22-28

DON'T MISS: "Riverdale" - This one could either be really fun - or a complete disaster. Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and the whole comic book gang show up in this subversive live-action drama. But you may not recognize them. It's a radically different take on the wholesome town, which turns out to be rife with danger and dark secrets. One of those secrets involves our beloved redhead (KJ Apa) having an affair with his teacher, Miss Grundy. Yikes. 9 p.m. Thursday, The CW.

Compared to other TV shows, the grammatically challenged "This is Us" should not be a hit. In a landscape cluttered with network, cable and streaming series that feature flying dragons, killer zombies, graphic nudity, massively staged period pieces and glitzy gimmicks from time travel to super powers, the NBC series has captivated viewers with simple stories of three siblings told through different points in their lives.
