The Week’s guide to what’s worth watching

The best programs on TV this week

All Together Now—A Celebration of ServiceGeorge W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter honored fellow former President George H.W. Bush by attending this event celebrating his commitment to volunteerism. Performances by musicians Garth Brooks, Cee Lo Green, Sheryl Crow, and Sam Moore highlight the program, which was recorded March 21 at the Kennedy Center in Washington. Monday, March 28, at 8 p.m., NBC

Nurse JackieReturning for Season 3 of this dark comedy series, Emmy winner Edie Falco continues to believably harmonize the title character’s many facets—gifted nurse, loving mother, faithless adulteress, cunning drug addict. Actor Steve Buscemi directs the season premiere, deftly blending deadpan farce with drama. Anna Deavere Smith stands out among the supporting cast as Jackie’s imperious boss. Monday, March 28, at 10 p.m., Showtime

Frontline: Money and March MadnessTelevision rights to the NCAA’s March tournament are worth $10.8 billion over 14 years, but none of it goes to the players themselves. Correspondent Lowell Bergman interviews Sonny Vaccaro, a former marketing executive for Nike, Adidas, and Reebok who helped turn college basketball into big business—but who is now spearheading a class-action suit on behalf of unpaid student athletes. Tuesday, March 29, at 9 p.m., PBS; check local listings

Body of ProofAny resemblance between House and this new drama about a Philadelphia medical examiner is likely not a coincidence. Dana Delany stars as the caustic Dr. Megan Hunt, who has rocky relationships with the city’s police and with her co-workers, her ex-husband, and her daughter. Hunt’s brilliant career as a neurosurgeon was ended by injury—but that doesn’t stop her from having uncanny insights into murders. Tuesday, March 29, at 10 p.m., ABC

Plan B: Mobilizing to Save CivilizationThis Journey to Planet Earth documentary follows pioneering environmentalist Lester Brown around the world as he warns of the grave potential consequences of climate change and argues eloquently for his solution, which would entail reducing carbon emissions, stabilizing populations, eradicating poverty, and restoring natural resources. Economist Paul Krugman, journalist Thomas Friedman, and various scholars and scientists also comment; Matt Damon hosts. Wednesday, March 30, at 10 p.m., PBS; check local listings
