Shows We're Looking Forward To, Now That the Olympics Are Over

Now that the Olympic drama of icebound athletic competition (and tearjerking backstories) is over, TV is ready to resume airing real drama. And by real drama, we mean, of course, fake drama, scripted by writers and performed by actors.

It seems like most of television went into hibernation during the Olympics, with only 'Lost,' 'American Idol,' and a handful of other shows daring to take on the unstoppable might of Bob Costas. Now that the games are over, however, March will see the long-awaited return of some favorite series and the premieres of some anticipated new shows.

There are some big events this month, including the return of Jay Leno to 'The Tonight Show' (tonight on NBC), the Oscars (March 7, ABC), and March Madness basketball (starting March 18 on CBS). There are also reliable old favorites returning, including 'Gossip Girl' (March 8, the CW), 'America's Next Top Model' (March 10, the CW), 'The Celebrity Apprentice' (March 14, NBC), 'South Park' (March 17, Comedy Central) and 'Dancing With the Stars' (March 22, ABC). You can see a list of the whole month's notable TV premieres, finales, and specials here. Among these are a handful of new and returning shows we're especially looking forward to in March.

"I had never heard that," she replied. "That would be amazing."

When I asked her if the show would appeal to Buffy fans, she asked, "Did the original Buffy movie do well in the theaters?" When we said it didn't, she shot back in self-deprecating fashion: "This could be the perfect metaphor, then."
