Five candidates vie for an assistant manager position with the Palm Restaurant Group on 'The Job,' airing Friday, Feb. 8, 2013.

Are you one of the soon-to-be-snow-weary northeasterners stuck in this weekend’s potentially-epic snow storm? (Or do you just not like to go outside even in good weather?) Have no fear: this weekend offers plenty of television to keep you occupied inside.

Sure, there are the obvious choices. Watch every episode of House of Cards on Netflix. Catch up with Downton Abbey just in time for Sunday’s season semi-finale (not including the Christmas special). Remind yourself what’s going on on The Walking Dead before the show returns, also on Sunay. Fill out your Grammy ballot before the show’s broadcast (Sunday again).

But that’s not it. Here, presented without comment, are five other television-viewing ideas:

In case you didn’t guess, The Weather Channel has planned a whole weekend’s worth of live coverage of Winter Storm Nemo.

The premiere of the new reality competition The Job airs Friday at 8:00 ET on CBS. And it’s what it sounds like: the contestants are competing for an actual job (which will, one hopes, not be too depressing to watch). The first episode has them aiming for an assistant-manager position with the Palm Restaurant Group.

Get ready for the upcoming Bridget Jones book by watching Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, which is airing on Style twice this weekend.

Have a pre-Valentine’s Day marathon! The movie Valentine’s Day airs twice on TBS, Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown is on ABC at 8:00 pm on Saturday, and Sunday’s episode of The Simpsons is also love-themed.

Sunday on SYFY, catch the premiere of Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.
