Top TV week of March 10: 'Lindsay', 'Believe', 'Resurrection', 'Girls'

MONDAY

Series PREMIERE Believe, 10 p.m., NBC

It really doesn't matter what this show is about — we're watching it. The series was created by Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity) with someone from J.J. Abrams' production company Bad Robot, AND Abrams (Lost) is also producing the show. We're in! Though the premise sounds solid, too: A 10-year-old girl with extraordinary powers is assigned a former death-row prisoner as her guardian. Co-star and Twin Peaks alum Kyle MacLachlan should add spooky sci-fi gravitas. The show has a special debut tonight, then moves to its regular time slot 9 p.m. Sunday.

TUESDAY

Trophy Wife, 9:30 p.m., ABC

After finding videos of Pete's weddings to Diane and Jackie, Kate (Malin Akerman) realizes she missed out on something special by eloping and wants a real wedding. You know what that means: Ring bearer Bert!

THURSDAY

Hollywood Game Night, 9 p.m., NBC

We'll say this for Hollywood Game Night: It can sure put together an entertaining celebrity guest lineup. Franklin & Bash co-stars Breckin Meyer and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zach from Saved by the Bell, always and forever), Angela Kinsey from The Office, and the hilarious Fred Willard are among the celebs joining host Jane Lynch for this new episode.

Scandal, 10 p.m., ABC

According to the description for this episode, "A dirty secret could have deadly repercussions." Which is basically like saying humans need to breathe and grass is green. Just another fact of life.

SUNDAY

The Good Wife, 9 p.m., CBS

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio is making an appearance on the show as himself in this new episode, in which Alicia is asked to be the keynote speaker at the American Bar Association conference in NYC. We're sure Alicia's perfect hair and crisp pantsuits will translate with the change of scenery.

Girls, 10 p.m., HBO

Every episode of this season has been better than the last one. There was Hannah's new job writing advertorials. That epic best friend fight at the beach house. The interview with Patti LuPone. As Girls heads into its penultimate episode this week, we can't wait to see where Hannah and the gang go.

Resurrection, 9 p.m., ABC

You've seen the promos for this one. An older couple is shocked to see their young son return from the dead. A girl asks "Did I die?" ABC's newest drama looks downright eerie. It's also eerily similar to a French series that aired on the Sundance Channel (and is now available on Netflix) called The Returned. That show is flat-out fantastic, so, just one episode in, we're still intrigued enough by its premise to give this one a shot.

Lindsay, 10 p.m., OWN

We're not usually interested in watching celebs implode before our eyes, but we can't help be intrigued by this Lindsay Lohan docuseries. Like Oprah (who put it on her channel and seems to be mentoring young LiLo), we'd like to see the troubled actor succeed. Will she ever get back that natural talent that made her a star? You think about that; in the meantime we'll be reliving the Lohan glory days by watching Mean Girls again. And Parent Trap. Come on, she plays two people! And one of them has a British accent!
