Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Monday, March 30. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Comedy Central Roast Of Justin Bieber (Comedy Central, 10 p.m.): Look, we’re not going to say that the Roast Of Justin Bieber is going to be good. In fact, it will almost certainly be offensive and only mildly funny. But Monday nights are the most desolate they have been in a while, with most shows on hiatus right now. But you can watch the Kevin Hart-hosted roast of Biebz, whose roasters include Hannibal Buress, Chris D’Elia, Snoop Dogg, Natasha Leggero, Ludacris, Shaquille O’Neal, Jeff Ross and Martha Stewart (???).


Regular coverage

Bloodline (Netflix, 7 p.m.)

Bates Motel (A&E, 9 p.m.)

Better Call Saul (AMC, 10 p.m.)

RuPaul’s Drag Race, (Logo TV, 9 p.m.)

Elsewhere in TV Club

Monday show coverage might be sparse, but the latest theme week promises plenty of exciting new TV Club work: Today, The A.V. Club’s Mad Men Week kicks off. Gwen Ihnat writes about the significance of “Both Sides Now” by Judy Collins, heard over the credits of the season-six finale. In a new Watch This, Brandon Nowalk looks at Christina Hendricks pre-Mad Men work on Firefly. Vikram Murthi challenges the notion that Don Draper is an antihero in this For Our Consideration. Jay R. Ferguson, who plays the lovable Stan Rizzo, sat down with The A.V. Club for 11 Questions. And an all-new Inventory looks at the various pieces of pop culture that have entered the Sterling Cooper (Draper Pryce) offices.

What else is on?

The Voice (NBC, 8 p.m.): Part three of the Knockouts goes down on The Voice tonight. Nate Ruess tries to make things fun!

Jane The Virgin (The CW, 9 p.m.): There’s a repeat tonight, but Oliver Sava is taking the opportunity to revisit episode three, which we missed before our regular coverage began. Better late than never!

The Following (Fox, 9 p.m.): More. People. Die. Murder for everyone!

Cancer: The Emperor Of All Maladies (PBS, 9 p.m.): Part one of the three-part PBS documentary on the history of cancer and search for its cure premieres tonight.


Castle (ABC, 10 p.m.): In the hilariously titled “Habeas Corpse,” a personal-injury lawyer who is not Saul Goodman is murdered, and the list of suspects is very long.

Training Day (Spike, 7:30 p.m.): Denzel Washington won an Oscar for his performance as a corrupt undercover cop in this classic action flick.


Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (Oxygen, 5:30): Or if you’re looking for a slightly quieter night, opt for this classic comedy. It’ll make you want to take your own day off and hit the streets of Chicago.

In case you missed it

The Simpsons (Classic): Emily L. Stephens looked at “The Old Man And The Lisa,” and you should, too.
