All times Eastern.

Friday

7:00 p.m., ESPN: The Big East semifinal doubleheader features No. 5 Louisville and No. 10 Villanova in the opener and No. 18 Syracuse against West Virginia in the nightcap. Will the Orange have anything left in the tank after last night's 70-minute epic against Connecticut?

Saturday

8:40 a.m., Setanta Sports: The grudge match between Manchester United and Liverpool --  the top two teams in the current Premiership standings, respectively -- represents some of the most compelling theater in sports. (Compounding the hostility: If United win their 18th league championship this May, they'll draw even with Liverpool atop the all-time title standings.) Don't get Setanta and looking for a spot to watch Saturday morning? Punch your zip code into their venue finder to find a pub near you showing the match.

7:00 p.m., NBC: Olympic hero Michael Phelps talks to Matt Lauer on Dateline NBC.

10:30 p.m., HBO: Fictitious former major leaguer Kenny Powers (portrayed with gusto by Danny McBride) is the centerpiece of Eastbound & Down, this riotous comedy which makes ample use of pay cable's expanded boundaries.
