Series

Survivor: The Australian Outback (8 p.m., CBS) moves to Wednesdays to make room for CBS's NCAA Tournament coverage on Thursday. The tribes have merged but the old alliances are still there -- kind of like the 50-50 split in the Senate. Fox airs back-to-back reruns of The Simpsons (9 p.m., Fox). On a new episode of The West Wing (9 p.m., NBC), staffers' weekend plans are shot when a senator begins a Friday night filibuster. American Justice (9 p.m., A&E) profiles Erin Brockovich -- the real one. Denis Leary's new series The Job (9:30 p.m., ABC) is a dark half-hour comedy-drama about a smart-mouthed, boozing New York police detective. Bill Nunn, Wendy Makkena, Diane Farr and Lenny Clarke costar. If you prefer smart-mouthed New York police detectives without the booze and the attitude, there's a new Law & Order (10 p.m., NBC); the discovery of a woman's body leads to the reinvestigation of a suspect who may have been wrongly convicted. On Once & Again (10 p.m., ABC), Rick and his kids move in with Lily, Grace and Zoe, but they fail to find "Brady Bunch" harmony. Bobby Knight and Vince McMahon go On the Record with Bob Costas (11 p.m., HBO).
