TONIGHT'S MUST-SEE: Basketball, 6:09
p.m. ET and about 8:49 p.m., CBS.
Tonight, we learn who will be in the
NCAA championship game Monday.
Of the four teams that were top-seeded
in the regions, Louisville is the only one that's still around.
Tonight – after losing Kevin Ware to a compound leg injury – it
faces ninth-seeded Wichita State.
Afterward, two No. 4 seeds, Syracuse
and Michigan, collide. This could be fun.
TONIGHT'S MUST-SEE II:“Orphan Black,”
9 p.m., BBC America.
Slick, smart and deeply human, this
show gets better each week.
In last week's opener, street-smart
Sarah (the superb Tatiana Maslany) kept seeing women who look like
her. One committed suicide; Sarah snatched her purse and her identity
– perilous one as a cop.
Another was killed in Sarah's car. The
next steps – covering up a body, uncovering secrets – are
difficult and compelling.
TONIGHT'S ALTERNATIVE: “Smash,” 9
After a soaring start, “Smash”
faded in the ratings and has just been banished to Saturdays. Still,
it tells an interesting story – Broadway musicals in the making –
with great songs and voices.
Karen left “Bombshell” (the Marilyn
Monroe musical) to join the emerging “Hit List” show. Now she's
fallen for the composer … unaware of his druggie past (and, maybe,
present). Tonight, things crumble.
Now Ivy stars in “Bombshell” –
and is jolted to learn that Tom has hired her mom (Bernadette Peters)
to play her mom. Now Tom tries to soothe things with a surprise; Liza
Minnelli is a guest star.
Other choices include:
– “The Voice,” 8 p.m., NBC.
Here's a rerun of Tuesday's episode, with the fourth night of
– “The Middle,” 8 p.m., ABC. In a
rerun, the parents try to focus on a different kid for each day of a
three-day weekend. That means paintball with Axl, a sci-fi book
convention with Brick … and an overbooked, 17-item itinerary with
– “Doctor Who,” 8 p.m., BBC
America. The doctor takes Clara to the rings of a planet that is
having its festival. Unfortunately, there will be a sacrifice.
– “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962), 8
p.m. to midnight, Turner Classic Movies. Sweeping visuals help tell
the true story of an Englishman who led an Arab revolt. The result
won seven Oscars, including best picture and director (David Lean).
Peter O'Toole and co-star Omar Sharif were nominated.
– “How to Live With Your Parents
(For the Rest of Your Life,” 8:30 p.m., ABC. Here' a second chance
to see the fun pilot film. An earnest mom (Sarah Chalke) returning to
her mom's chaotic world.
– “The Following,” 9 p.m., Fox.
Here's a quick rerun of Monday's solid episode, with sudden changes
in surroundings. Claire is in Joe's hide-out, desperate to find her
kidnapped son; the FBI people are in a former armory that Joe seems
to be using for weapons and training.
– “Saturday Night Live,” 10 and
11:29 p.m., NBC. First is a rerun, with Bruno Mars as host and music
guest. Then Melissa McCarthy has her second turn as host, this time
with music from Phoenix.
