Louisville and Michigan could offer a thrilling finale Monday to the NCAA Basketball Tournament. That would be a fitting end to the tourney. But "Dancing With the Stars" and "The Voice" won't take the night off.
The week's highlights:
Monday: The blind auditions continue on "The Voice" at 8 on NBC. "Dancing With the Stars," at 8 on ABC, asks the 10 remaining celebrities to perform in honor of the best years of their lives. Zendaya Coleman, Jacoby Jones and Kellie Pickler are setting the pace. "The Carrie Diaries" delivers its season finale 8 on The CW. CBS will start the Louisville-Michigan game in the 9 p.m. hour. If you don't like basketball, Fox has a fresh "Following" at 9 and NBC offers a new "Revolution" at 10.
Tuesday: "NCIS," TV's most most-watched series this season, presents a new episode at 8. Tony is worried about how Ziva is dealing with her father's death. NBC counters with more auditions of "The Voice," and the network hopes the singing contest will help bring viewers to "Ready for Love," a dating contest that debuts at 9. "Dancing With the Stars" shares the latest results at 9; the show fills out the hour with a Brad Paisley performance and an Andrea Bocelli-Jennifer Lopez duet. PBS hopes you'll be glad to spend some time with Carol Burnett. Public television replays an "American Masters" profile of the TV legend at 8, then follows with a "Pioneers of Television" half-hour at 9:30 focused on Burnett, Lucille Ball and Betty White. Now that's a trio to celebrate.
Wednesday: "American Idol" has two hours to fill at 8 on Fox, and so the six finalists will each perform two songs. One of those songs will be one the contestant wishes he or she had written. The entire ABC and CBS lineups are new. Paget Brewster and Benjamin Bratt guest star on "Modern Family" at 9 on ABC. PBS' "Nova," at 9, launches a four-part series on Australia, and the photography should do wonders for tourism.
Thursday: "American Idol," at 8, brings on two former champs, Kelly Clarkson and Scotty McCreery, to perform. If a woman finalist is in jeopardy of being ejected, look for the judges to use their lone save this season. If Lazaro Arbos gets the fewest votes, the judges will not save him. Count on that. A new "Glee" follows at 9 on Fox, and the network teases that "an unthinkable event occurs at McKinley High."
Friday: Starting at 8, CBS airs new episodes of "Undercover Boss," "Vegas" and "Blue Bloods." "Vegas" rejoined the schedule last week, and the ratings were ho-hum. Can the Dennis Quaid show do better against reruns? At 10 on PBS, "Michael Feinstein's American Songbook" celebrates the diverse talents of Bing Crosby, Kate Smith, Rosemary Clooney, Rose Marie of "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and violinist Joshua Bell.
Saturday: Vince Vaughn hosts "Saturday Night Live" at 11:30 on NBC. Miguel will be the musical guest. Vaughn has the thankless task of following Melissa McCarthy, who was sensational Saturday. "Louie" star Louis C.K. headlines his fourth stand-up special for HBO. "Louis C.K.: Oh My God" starts at 10 p.m.
