    American Suzuki's 2011 Super Bowl commercial featured angry snowmen. This year the automaker is going with a gang of huskies. Catch more on "Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials" at 8 p.m. Wednesday on CBS.

What to watch for on TV this week:

Wednesday: Talking babies. Goofy animals ... For years now, the Super Bowl telecast has been a showcase for standout ad spots. "Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials" is a special that runs down the best of the best, based on viewer votes. 8 p.m., CBS.
Thursday: "Grey's Anatomy" offers an intriguing "what if" twist with an episode that envisions alternate fates for the show's characters. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), for example, imagines what life would have been like if her late mother (Kate Burton) had not fallen victim to Alzheimer's. 9 p.m., ABC.
"The Union," directed by music-loving filmmaker Cameron Crowe, is a documentary that examines the collaboration of Elton John and Leon Russell on their acclaimed 2010 album. Included: A rare look into John's composing process. 9 p.m., HBO.
