Third-round games begin today, and there’s already lots of drama between the lines – and the lineups. The day’s action begins at 12:15 p.m. ET on CBS, when Ohio State (seeded No. 2 in the West) faces No. 10 seed Iowa State, which already knocked Notre Dame (No. 7) out of the tourney. Other games featuring second-round bracket-busters include 13th-seeded LaSalle, which beat fellow West team Kansas State (ranked No. 4), facing off against 12-seeded Mississippi, which in the previ

Slimy actor Josh Duhamel is the host of this year’s kid-friendly funfest. Well, he may not have been a slimy actor when this show begins – but by the time it’s over, there’s a very good chance he’ll have been slimed.

It’s “Girls with Guns” night on TCM, and the action begins with this tightly coiled, slightly twisted 1949 cult classic, starring Peggy Cummins and John Dall.

Another entry in TCM’s “Girls with Guns” salute tonight, this one is an early one – less than a decade after movies made the transition from silent to sound. And it stars a real pistol in the title role: Barbra Stanwyck.

This is an observation, not a recommendation. Tonight NBC reveals the flaw in presenting its Saturday-night “same-week” prime-time reruns of new late-night episodes of Saturday Night Live. Namely, when the late-night show is in reruns, then the Saturday-night show has nothing new to present. So tonight, we get a cut-down Jeremy Renner / Maroon 5 episode of SNL at 10 p.m. ET, and a repeat Adam Levine / Kendrick Lamar SNL at 11:29 p.m. ET. If you’re going to watch both, especiall

What Steven Spielberg lost in converting this stage play to this 2011 movie was its overt symbolism, and the beauty of the onstage “puppet” that symbolized the titular animal. What he gained, though, was a majestic creature with spirit to spare, and a brilliantly photographed film about a horse and his trainer, and their separate grim journeys through World War I. Jeremy Irvine stars as the trainer – but watch for Peter Mullan as Ted Narracott, who figures prominently in War Ho

When is a Fellini movie not a Fellini movie (not completely, anyway)? When it’s this 1948 Italian film, because it’s directed by Roberto Rossellini, who also wrote the screenplay. But others who contributed to the story include both Federico Fellini and Jean Cocteau, and Fellini himself, in this rarely televised movie, has an onstage role as well, as the Tramp. Anna Magnani (pictured) stars.

Tonight’s edition features a report by Ted Koppel, who usually reports on international issues. Tonight, though, he focuses on the United States, and this country’s sometimes shocking treatment of juvenile prisoners, whom Koppel finds stuck away in adult prisons, sometimes put in solitary confinement for their own protection.
