What to Watch: March 29 - April 4

by Stephanie Earp, posted Mar 29th 2010 2:29AM


Biography: Tiger Woods
- Thursday April 1, 8 pm, Biography Channel

When illustrious personages reach a certain age or notoriety, it is common practice in the media to have an obituary ready and written in case of sudden death. I imagine Michael Jackson falls into this category, and I know when I was at a magazine, a certain low-voiced newsman was our main worry. I would suspect the Biography Channel's eponymous show works the same way so I'm surprised it took this long to get a Tiger Woods episode on the air. Interviews with himself, his late father, Wayne Gretzky, Lance Armstrong and Michael Jordan pepper the episode, and is timed perfectly for Woods' return at the Masters this April.

The Marriage Ref - Thursday April 1, 10 pm, Citytv/NBC

Something is seriously up with Sheryl Crow. This week you can watch her on two different TV shows. This one, with Jimmy Fallon and Kirstie Alley as her fellow panelists, and on 'Cougar Town' where she continues her guest-starring role as Sara, the singing wine rep. Is this the beginning of a sly career move? I have to say, if it is, I'm not entirely against it.

Canwest Canspell National Spelling Bee - Saturday April 3, 8 pm, Global

Spelling bees. Who knew? We North Americans can't support a major soccer league, but get a bunch of kids to stand on stage performing one of the more elementary exercises involved in being literate and our hearts melt. Today's winner gets a $15,000 scholarship and goes on to the next level in Washington, D.C., this June.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition - Sunday April 4, 8 pm, Citytv/ABC

Allow me to provide a synopsis for this episode: Hopeful people do amazing things, but thanks to a natural disaster or medical emergency, they live in a hellhole and now Ty Pennington is going to change that. What makes this week so special is that Jessica Alba is his celebrity volunteer. If the rumour mill is even remotely right about La Alba, she'll help by painting her nails and drinking lattes.
