This special program profiles 16th-century samurai Miyamoto Musashi and also takes a look at traditional Japanese weapons and training methods. Tom Cruise will not be sharing his experiences as the last samurai (we hope).

FlashForward recap

To get you up to speed in time for Thursday's spring premiere, ABC has put together a nice little recap of the first ten episodes. We expect to see a lot of Joseph Fiennes' furrowed brow.

Series premiere, 10 p.m., FX


U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) believes in enforcing the law his way—by adopting the old-fashioned protocol of the 19th century lawman—so he's reassigned to his hometown to keep him from stirring up trouble. In the series premiere, he crosses paths with a white-supremacist former coal-miner who's taken up crime.

11:35 p.m., CBS

Late Show with David Letterman

Dave welcomes fellow late-night host Jimmy Kimmel. I wonder if they're going to talk about... Jimmy Fallon? Yeah, he's definitely the hot topic in late-night conversation right now.
