TONIGHT’S MUST-SEE: Basketball, 9 p.m. ET, CBS.
This is the big one, the NCAA championship game, with a
preview at 8:30 ET.
Preceding that in many time zones (but following it on the
West Coast) is a rerun of the funny season-opener of “The Big Bang Theory.” Back
from his ocean adventure, Leonard decides to quietly stay at Penny’s place for
a few days he doesn’t tell his roommate Sheldon, whose feelings are hurt.
TONIGHT’S MUST-SEE II: “Dancing
with the Stars,” 8-10:01 p.m., ABC.
It’s a night for the Houghs to take over. Julianne – once
one of the show’s pro dancers, now an actress and country-music singer – is a
guest judge; her brother Derek leads this edition’s first “all-star” dance, mixing
pros, contestants and (tonight) Kathryn McCormick, formerly of “So You Think
You Can Dance.”
This also may be Derek’s last time being teamed with Amy
Purdy. Tonight, we learn which changes viewers have ordered in the show’s
“switch-up” vote. Last week, no one was pushed out because Billy Dee Williams
(the oldest contestant, at 76) withdrew because of back trouble.
TONIGHT’S ALTERNATIVE: “In Performance at the White House,”

In between are other great women. The line-up includes
Melissa Etheridge, Jill Scott, Janelle Monae, Ariana Grande and “Voice” winner
TONIGHT’S ALTERNATIVE II: “Being Human” series finale, 9
It’s been a tough journey for this show, adapted from a
smart British series about mismatched misfits. Syfy cancelled it after four
seasons, but gave it time to plan this finale.
“Human” started with Aidan (an angry, 260-year-old vampire)
and Josh (a good-hearted werewolf) renting an apartment, only to learn it’s
occupied by Sally (a bubbly ghost). Josh met Nora, inadvertently turned her
into a werewolf, and married her. Also, Aidan got angrier and Sally got
quirkier. Tonight, Sally considers an extreme sacrifice and Aidan desperately
tries to rid the house of evil.
