Reruns still dominate the prime-time schedule; the new season is now scheduled to begin next week. Biography (8 p.m., A&E) has a new profile of "Godfather" author Mario Puzo. CBS resumes new episodes of the reality show The Amazing Race (9 p.m., CBS). The West Wing (9 p.m., NBC) reruns last season's cliffhanger finale, in which Bartlet grapples with all manner of crises as he decides whether or not to run for reelection. HBO reruns the season premiere of Curb Your Enthusiasm (9 p.m., HBO); Larry and Cheryl go house hunting, and Larry realizes his dream of being a car salesman.


Diamondbacks at Rockies (7 p.m., ESPN)
Braves at Phillies (7 p.m., ESPN2)
