Back to the Future
6/5c AMC
Michael J. Fox is at the wheel of this hysterical, historical joyride as AMC goes back-to-back-to-back with all three entries in the time-traveling "Back to the Future" film franchise. In the 1985 original, Fox's time machine steers him to 1955, where he meets his parents-to-be as teens. The sequel, Back to the Future Part II (1989), has him shuttling between 2015 and 1955 in an effort to rescue his kids; and 1990's Back to the Future Part III finds Fox moseying into the Old West, circa 1885. — Ray Stackhouse

Happy New Year, Charlie Brown 8/7c ABC That Charlie Brown sure knows how to partay. In tonight's first holiday charmer (from 1986) Chuck rings in the New Year at a party with Tolstoy's War and Peace

, which he has to read over the holidays. He does take part in some of the festivities before settling down to the tome — only to miss the evening's surprise.

Women's Basketball
9/8c ESPN2
A week after surpassing the 88-game winning streak of John Wooden's UCLA Bruins, Geno Auriemma's Connecticut Huskies ironically headed to California---as if the late Wizard of Westwood wanted a word — for a game at Pacific on Tuesday and tonight's showdown with Stanford. The visit to Palo Alto is not just another stop on UConn's double-digit victory tour, however, as the Cardinal entered the week with the distinction of being the last team to defeat Geno's squad (in a 2008 NCAA semifinal). Coach Tara VanDerveer and Co. also put a real scare into the Huskies in last April's championship game until Maya Moore (23 points, 11 boards) came to the rescue for consecutive win No. 78. — Roger Leister
