NCAA men's basketball tournament (Ch. 2): Maryland vs. Texas-El Paso (10:40 a.m.); BYU vs. Syracuse (approximately 1:10 p.m.); Duke vs. Alabama State (5:10 p.m.); Air Force vs. North Carolina (approximately 7:40 p.m.) You may (or may not) be interested to know that CBS will be airing the games live — the network issued a statement a couple of days ago that, "Contrary to published reports, CBS will not use a delay in broadcasting the NCAA men's Division I basketball championship." The network also said that CBS's executive vice president "mis-spoke" when he told the New York Times that there would be just such a delay. Gee, what networks (and CBS in particular) are going through in the aftermath of Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake's infamous Super Bowl halftime performance . . .

Friends (7 p.m., Ch. 5): Yet another repeat chosen by online fan voting. This is what happens when a series produces only 18 new episodes and has to stretch those out from September to May.

Tru Calling (7 p.m., Ch. 13): Tru enters a beauty contest in order to prevent a murder.

Steve Harvey's Big Time (7 p.m., Ch. 30): Performers include a family of Celtic dancers, a break dance contest and a man who shows how low he can go with the limbo.

The Fabulous Life of Donald Trump (7 p.m., VH-1): Gee, yet another hour on yet another TV network for the Donald's ego to be inflated.

Will & Grace (7:30 p.m., Ch. 5): Will tries to teach Karen to drive, and she ends up in jail.

Like Family (7:30 p.m., Ch. 30): Maddie gets promoted, but her new job leaves her no time to help Keith with his problems at school.

The Apprentice (8 p.m., Ch. 5): This hour has nothing new — it recaps the action up to this point in the show's run.

Jamie Kennedy Experiment (8 p.m., Ch. 30): Nikki Hilton helps upset a guest at an upscale hotel. (A repeat follows at 8:30 p.m.)

Kenny vs. Spenney (8 p.m., GSN): This offbeat, low-budget Canadian import features two buddies — Kenny Hotz and Spencer Rice — who challenge each other in odd contests. The humor comes in when they involve others in their weirdness.

Designed to Sell (8:30 p.m., HGTV): The cable network's latest home improvement show is just what the title indicates. Interior designers work with homeowners (and a $2,000 budget) to spruce up their abode in order to make it more attractive to prospective buyers. But, after the makeover, might some of those homeowners decide not to sell?

ER (9 p.m., Ch. 5): If you missed it the first time around, here's a second chance to see one of the doctors go splat when a helicopter falls on him. (Repeat)

Great Performances (9 p.m., Ch. 7): Harry Connick Jr. performs.
