Entertainment Weekly's daily guide to notable shows:

9-11PM
SEASON PREMIERE -- BEHIND THE CAMERA: THE UNAUTHORIZED STORY OF "MORK & MINDY"
(NBC, TV-14) Who knows why Chris Diamantopoulos would want to tackle Robin Williams, but to his credit, he's got him nailed. Diamantopoulos channels the comedian as he's "going to 11" and in rare quiet moments, with a performance that revives a tired formula of get-hit-show/ fight-with-network/ see-actor-lose-control.

Two issues: Watching "Robin Williams" for two hours is exhausting, and just like the real Mork & Mindy, it's all about him.

EW Grade: B+

Best of the rest

7-8AM*
SESAME STREET
(PBS, TV-Y) Your kid is not fat! The new fitness regimen is so Snuffy won't feel singled out.

9-11:30PM
NCAA TOURNAMENT FINALS
(CBS) So your bracket is shot to bits, your psyche is ripped apart from watching upset after upset, and you've lost a bunch of money and self-respect to those office pools you thought you'd win.

Your consolation prize? Another exciting NCAA Tournament Final in which history is made and a national college basketball champion is crowned. It's not as great a prize as, say, winning $300 from your coworkers, but it'll do.

9-10PM
24
(Fox, TV-14-V) Audrey thinks Jack's a bad egg? And what does she think Daddy Dearest did to her brother? I guess after Nina, Jack started going for naive.

9-10:40PM
THE STAIRCASE
(Sundance Channel, TV-14) It's not that you shouldn't share a home with a guy whose wife and friend ended up dead at the bottom of the stairs. You just might wanna go ranch-style.

9-11PM
ODD GIRL OUT
(Lifetime, TV-14-DL) Alexa Vega is a smart girl bullied by her ex-friends, proving there's no mean like teen.

10-10:30
FAT ACTRESS
(Showtime, TV-MA) Who can concentrate on Kirstie's crackhead brother? Blossom getting her itch scratched left us scarred.
