TV Highlights: Week of March 4

March 04, 2012

SUNDAY

Will Matthew and Lady Mary marry? Whither Mr. Bates? The answers to those and other questions will have to wait, for what already feels like forever, for Season 3. Til then, there's the special "Downton Abbey — Behind the Drama." (KOCE, 9 p.m.)

Based on a bestseller with a somewhat indelicate title – hence the tasteful initials – the naughty new prime-time soap "GCB" stars Leslie Bibb and "Glee's" Kristin Chenoweth, below, as the misbehavin' ladies of a well-to-do Dallas suburb. (ABC, 10 p.m.)

MONDAY

When the "battle rounds" begin on the singing competition "The Voice" the judges recruit professionals to help the contestants. Christina Aguilera works with Jewel and Lionel Richie; Adam Levine teams with Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke; Cee Lo Green has Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and Ne-Yo; Blake Shelton gets help from Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert. (NBC, 8 p.m.)

TUESDAY

When last we left "Breaking In" — honestly, that was so long ago we don't really remember. But we do know that "Will & Grace's" Megan Mullally is joining this once-canceled sitcom when it finally returns for a second season. (Fox, 9:30 p.m.)

WEDNESDAY

He battled a madman's kung fu army, bested Chuck Norris at the Colosseum in Rome, and single-handedly put martial arts movies on the map. And now, the man, the myth, the legend is saluted in the 2011 documentary "I Am Bruce Lee." (Spike, 9 p.m.)

THURSDAY

One year ago, a large earthquake off the Japanese coast unleashed a massive tidal wave. Previously unseen footage of the unfolding disaster, some of it shot by survivors themselves, is featured in special "Japan Tsunami: Tales of Terror." (TLC, 9 p.m.)

FRIDAY

They'll always have Portland: Carrie Brownstein and "SNL's" Fred Armisen ring down the curtain on another season of "Portlandia," the duo's quirky sketch-comedy show set in the perpetually cloudy and crowded-with-hipsters Oregon burg. (IFC, 10 p.m.)

SATURDAY

Politics sure did make strange bedfellows out of Sen. John McCain (Ed Harris) and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (Julianne Moore, below), as detailed in the new docudrama "Game Change," based on the book about the 2008 presidential race. (HBO, 9 p.m.)
