- NCAA Basketball Championship -- CBS, Monday, 9 p.m.
This thing is still going on?
- The Masters -- CBS, Sunday, 2 p.m.
One of the best days of the sports calendar (Sunday at The Masters) is this week, and the Tiger Woods sycophants that dominate the golf world are catatonic that Woods won't compete this year.
He hasn't won a major in six years and a Masters in nine. It's like he's Arnold Schwarzenegger. People keep expecting him to come out with another Terminator 2 or True Lies, but really they're just going to have to be happy with Escape Plan.
And I'd guess the two of them probably have a steroid thing in common, too.
- Inside the Hunt for the Boston Bombers -- National Geographic, Sunday, 9 p.m.
National Geographic's latest "special presentation" recounts the manhunt that followed last year's Boston Marathon bombing, and early reviews indicate that it's pretty good.
But it's one of those hybrid docudramas that features faceless actors partaking in weird re-enactments. It makes sense, though -- there was literally zero coverage from that week that National Geographic could have used.
- Turn -- AMC, Sunday, 9 p.m.
AMC's new venture to fill their post-Breaking Bad (and soon-to-be post-Mad Men) abyss of quality shows is Turn, a period drama set during the Revolutionary War. Based on the book "Washington Spies," the show follows a group called the Culper Ring, who were secret confidants of George Washington.
There must've been innovative spy gadgets back in the 1700s, right? How about wooden teeth with daggers that protruded from them on command? Or a wig bomb? Or better yet -- wig balm. It looks like a tube of Chapstick, but a full, fluffy wig comes out of it for any of your disguise needs.
Man, spies are so cool.
- Mad Men -- AMC, Sunday, 10 p.m.
The final season of Mad Men is here, except it's being split into two halves to torture us. Gah, AMC, I rue the day you tried to make The Killing a thing!
When we last left ... um ... whatever that agency is called these days, Don had been asked to take a leave of absence because of his bad behavior, Pete was ostensibly moving to California, and Bob Benson continued to do creepy Bob Benson things.
The last shot of the season (Don showing his kids the brothel he grew up in) suggested possible happiness at the end of the tunnel. Only 14 episodes left until we find out.
