HDTV Listings for March 8, 2006

Kevin C. Tofel

What we're watching: Let the early symptoms of the disease known as "March Madness" begin! ESPN-HD has a Big East Basketball doubleheader in 720p starting at 7 p.m. tonight. First up: Rutgers vs. Seton Hall at Madison Round Garden. Tip number two is Louisville vs. Pittsburgh at 9 p.m. Don't forget, the winner of every conference makes it to the big dance starting soon. Personally, NCAA Basketball was one of the first (if not the first) high-definition programs I've ever seen. Sniff, sniff. I need a tissue after that tidbit of nostalgia.

Our traditional high-def listings continue below.
