CBS offers salute, celebration of the Beatles BY KEVIN MCDONOUGH It was 50 years ago today. “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles” (8 p.m. Sunday, CBS, TVPG) reminds us of the remarkable night the Fab Four first played on “The Ed Sullivan Show” on Feb. 9, 1964. Tonight’s glance back is hardly the first in a long and winding road of Beatles retrospectives. In fact, rehashing Beatles history is as old as the Beatles phenomenon itself. The band consciously cited their “old” 1964 images as wax figures on their 1967 “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album cover. And even as they were shedding their mop top facade, it was being recycled on American television as “The Monkees” by 1966. After breaking up in 1970, the ex-Beatles would find inventive and occasionally angry ways to define themselves as un-Beatles. George Harrison would even appear in the 1978 TV mockumentary “The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash,” a Monty Pythonesque spoof of the band’s well-known story. Beatles impersonators would arrive and never go away. “Beatlemania” opened on Broadway in 1977 and is still probably playing in a mall or dinner theater near you. The Bee Gees would appear (along with everyone from Peter Frampton to Peter Allen and Alice Cooper to Steve Martin) in a 1978 movie musical called “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” — instantly condemned as one of the worst movies ever made. Emerging artists continually struggled under the burden of comparisons to the Beatles. Everyone from The Knack to Supertramp would be touted as the “next” Beatles, while others like The Clash would snarl about “phony Beatlemania” in their 1979 song “London Calling.” It would take John Lennon’s murder in 1980 to end speculation about a Beatles revival. But that hardly stopped a steady parade of imitations and homages. Retrospective clips within the 1984 spoof “This Is Spinal Tap” offered spot-on parodies of the British folk-skiffle scene from which the Beatles emerged. Nirvana would imitate early Beatles clips in its 1992 video for “In Bloom.”

The early ‘90s would bring the band Oasis, who flagrantly aped the Beatles’ attitude and sound. I once heard the band described as “the Rutles without a sense of humor.” The surviving Beatles would reunite for an “Anthology” special, shown on ABC in 1995. They would also appear, separately, on “The Simpsons,” the only scripted TV show to feature George, Paul and Ringo (as well as Linda Eastman McCartney). In 2001, an episode of “The Powerpuff Girls” entitled “Meet the Beat-Alls” consisted almost entirely of dialogue derived from Beatles lyrics. Like the 1993 “Baby on Board” “Simpsons” episode, “Meet the Beat-Alls” referenced the arc of the Beatles’ career. While “The Simpsons” was written, created by and often for baby boomers, Craig McCracken, creator of “The Powerpuff Girls,” hadn’t even been born when the Beatles broke up. And “The Powerpuff Girls” audience hadn’t been born during the heyday of Oasis. Movies about the Beatles, their music and influence — from “Backbeat” (1994), “Two of Us” (2000), “Across the Universe” (2007) and “Nowhere Boy” (2009) — continued to keep the memories and legend alive, as have any number of “American Idol” nights devoted to Beatles songs and even a 40th-anniversary salute to “Sgt. Pepper’s” in the show’s 2007 finale. And let’s not forget the fateful trip to India in the 2007 musical-comedy “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.” Or the Beatles-saturated episodes of “SpongeBob SquarePants” and “Wonder Pets!” • The fourth season of “The Walking Dead” (9 p.m. Sunday, AMC, TV-MA) finds survivors of the prison farm scattered to the winds, or rather, the abandoned suburbs. That means far more scenes of fighting off shuffling monsters and no more attempts at education and agriculture and other signs of civilization. Tonight’s episode alternates between scenes of nail-biting suspense in a haunted house and moments of machetewielding decapitation. • As if to throw down the gauntlet and challenge “The Walking Dead” viewers to choose between their two favorite cult shows, HBO offers “Game of Thrones: Ice and Fire: A
