NCAA Basketball (CBS 7pm, 9:30pm) Washington vs. Syracuse/Cincinatti vs. Ohio State
I don’t follow basketball, but a lot of people seem to like it.

I never know who any of the “performances by” people are on this show anymore.

And when this show says “old acquaintance,” you know they mean it.
30 Rock (NBC 8pm, 8:30pm) Liz tries to mentor Hazel; struggling to let go of his page duties, Kenneth goes to extremes to ensure Tracy is taken care of; Jack and Jenna scheme to get Avery back in the news. Liz’s version of Jack and Avery’s romance leaves Jack confused about his feelings for Diana; Jenna and Tracy battle Weird Al Yankovic; Kenneth gets a new job at the network.
“Jenna and Tracy battle Weird Al Yankovic;” just let that sink in for a minute.
If it were me, I think I’d just let Weird Al win.
