But The Event is still on NBC at 9 PM, with "Face Off":

President Martinez (Blair Underwood) and Blake Sterling (Zeljko Ivanek) have the Sleepers surrounded, but after Sophia (Laura Innes) triggers a national disaster, negotiations ensue.

Cartoon Network has a full slate of programs. It starts at 6:30 PM with Batman: The Brave and the Bold, "Bat-Mite Presents: Batman's Strangest Cases!"

Here's a clip.

It all caps off at 8 PM, with a one-hour season finale for Star Wars: The Clone Wars: "Padawan Lost"/"Wookiee Hunt". And just who is the Wookiee they're hunting?

Ahsoka finds herself trapped on a Trandoshan moon, prey in an elaborate and cruel hunt. As Ahsoka and her allies struggle to evade the Trandoshan hunters, their efforts receive an unexpected boost when a new captive — Chewbacca the Wookiee — arrives.


Of course, these episodes also have already aired overseas. Here's a clip.

The hit series Superjail! is getting slammed back in general population for a second season of destruction premiering Sunday, April 3 at midnight (ET, PT) on Adult Swim. Double the insanity. Double the crazy. Double the pain of being kicked in the guts really hard. Season 2 makes Season 1 - which had a body count in the tens of thousands - look like Steel Magnolias.
