"Girl power" is the rule of the day (or late night) when octogenarian funnywoman Betty White hosts. It's clearly ladies' night in a special Mother's Day tribute, featuring the slated return of former distaff cast members Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and Ana Gasteyer, all reuniting to add a powerhouse female spin to the satirical proceedings. All this glorious estrogen-fueled fun is balanced by the muscular rap stylings of Jay-Z, who takes the stage as music guest. — Dean Maurer

Rescued
8/7c CNN
Prior to the January 2010 earthquake, life for many Haitian children was one of abject poverty. In its aftermath, life became all that much worse. Yet, as this moving report from Soledad O'Brien shows, hope is not absent. O'Brien relays the stories of a 7-year-old orphan and a former child slave whose lives changed for the better — earthquake and setbacks notwithstanding — when they were taken in by Christian missionaries. — Jeff Gemmill

Mongolian Death Worm

If you spent the dawn of your acting career playing the younger version of an action hero made famous by Harrison Ford, you probably wouldn't be too surprised if you ended up in a 2010 flick about treasure hunters bent on finding the tomb of Genghis Khan. Tune in to see if Sean Patrick Flanery picked up anything from his "Young Indiana Jones" days that might come in handy against man-eating worms. — Michael Chant

NASCAR Racing
7/6c Fox
As NASCAR's answer to Wrigley Field, venerable Darlington (S.C.) Raceway resisted night racing for years before finally giving in back in 2005. Now, the Southern 500 is one of the most dazzling events on the Sprint Cup calendar, as lights enhance the contact-filled action on the quirky 1.36-mile oval dubbed "too tough to tame." En route to his storybook runner-up series finish last year, 50-year-old Mark Martin took the checkered flag at Darlington for just the second time in 43 starts, edging out Tony Stewart, who counts the Lady in Black (its other nickname) as one of just three active tracks he's yet to tame. — Roger Leister

Vicky Cristina Barcelona
9/8c Showtime
Writer-director Woody Allen scores once again with this winning 2008 romantic comedy about vacationing American friends (Scarlett Johansson, Rebecca Hall) who both fall for a Spanish painter (Javier Bardem). But his ex-wife (Penélope Cruz), "an incredible woman [who once] put a knife into [him]," is not quite out of the picture. The four main performers work wonderfully well together, and Allen's dialogue crackles with wit and sophistication. — Ray Stackhouse
