The time has come to define Bracketology as it will be for the 2019 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. The brackets for the four regions – East, South, West and Midwest – will be announced tonight, as will the schedule for the first round of the tournament, including Tuesday and Wednesday’s play-in games.

9 p.m. ET on CW

When Maggie (Sarah Jeffery) shows the strange room under Vera Manor to Macy, Harry and Charity (Madeleine Mantock, Rupert Evans, guest star Virginia Williams), their fascination quickly turns to apprehension when Mel (Melonie Diaz) and Maggie switch both bodies and powers in the new episode “Switches & Stones.” Later, Macy seeks guidance from the Elders over how to conquer her inner demon, which leads to an eye-opening experience.


Tricky Dick

9 p.m. ET on CNN – Series Premiere

This four-part docu-series delves into the life and times of Richard Milhous Nixon, chronicling his rise and early fall, followed in turn by a startling comeback that was only a prologue to his complete political destruction during a turbulent American political decade. The opener, “Part One: The Will to Win,” covers his upbringing in a modest household that often seemed beset by tragedy. Those challenging times toughened the young Nixon’s resolve, teaching him how to recognize an opportunity and seize it when it came along.



9 p.m. ET on SHOWTIME – Season Premiere

Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but it’s rarely off the menu on this splendidly acted drama as it returns for Season 4, wherein old foes Bobby Axelrod and Chuck Rhoades (Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti) and their chief counselor, Wendy Rhoades (Maggie Siff), form an uneasy alliance to take down their rivals. In the season premiere, “Chucky Rhoades’s Greatest Game,” Chuck — no longer U.S. Attorney — struggles to reclaim power, while Axe sets his sights on taking down Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon).


High Maintenance

10:32 p.m. ET on HBO – Season Finale

Series star and co-creator Ben Sinclair also wrote and directed “Cruise,” the Season 3 finale, in which his character, The Guy, has an unexpected reunion with two old high school friends (guest stars Cassie Beck, John McKeever), who are visiting New York under less than happy circumstances. Meanwhile, Leonard (guest star Reed Birney), an acting teacher, weighs the advantages and drawbacks of moving back to the city.
