‘Bones’
TV’s most reliable “It’s on while I’m doing something else” show takes a look at a murder connected to a medical marijuana dispensary. We mock, but we’ll miss is someday when it finally shuffles off the air (in 30 years or so, since Fox keeps renewing it).
Fox, 8PM

NCAA Championship game
Since everyone’s bracket is totally busted at this point, you might as well watch this one for the actual enjoyment of watching a basketball game. Watch UConn take on Kentucky in the big final game.
CBS, 8PM

‘In Performance at the White House: Women of Soul’
Yes, you should occasionally turn on PBS for programming besides your beloved “Downton.” See greats Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle alongside newer acts like Janelle Monae and Ariana Grande.
PBS, 9PM

‘Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’
This is your warning that Colin Firth will be on your television. Repeat, Colin Firth will be available for gawking at on TV. Here’s hoping Fallon gets him to play one of their goofy games, which seems like a prime spot for some serious Firth.
NBC, 11:30PM
