In an ongoing effort to help fans of March Madness have a gentle landing back into television programming without your favorite games on four channels at once, USA Network offers viewers to your problems. Beginning Apr. 12 at 10 a.m. EST and extending through Apr. 13 at 10 p.m. EST, you can enjoy the TIVA and Chris Cross Marathon weekend and forget about college basketball, for a little while at least.

If you’re a fan of “NCIS,” you don’t need any explanation; you already know that TIVA is the romantic dynamic between Tony (DiNozzo) and Ziva (David). The “T(ony)-(Z)iva” electricity has been a favorite part of the shows that, for eight years helped elevate “NCIS” to its position as the number one scripted drama in America on CBS. Of course it goes without saying that the show begins and ends with the leadership and talent to command the camera that Mark Harmon does to perfection.

The "NCIS" reruns are such a popular staple of the USA Network. Even show stars Pauley Perrette and Brian Dietzen have stated that they regularly enjoy watching the marathons on the USA Network. The first part of USA’s basketball-free weekend features the following 10 hours of your favorite episodes that you already know by their titles:

10:00 AM NCIS (TIVA MARATHON) UNDER COVERS
11:00 AM NCIS (TIVA MARATHON) SEMPER FIDELIS
12:00 PM NCIS (TIVA MARATHON) ALIYAH
01:00 PM NCIS (TIVA MARATHON) TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES
02:00 PM NCIS (TIVA MARATHON) REUNION
03:00 PM NCIS (TIVA MARATHON) THE INSIDE MAN
04:00 PM NCIS (TIVA MARATHON) GOOD COP, BAD COP
05:00 PM NCIS (TIVA MARATHON) TELL-ALL
06:00 PM NCIS (TIVA MARATHON) BERLIN
07:00 PM NCIS (TIVA MARATHON) REVENGE

Next, part two of the fun begins on Sunday, late morning, with the “Chris Cross” Marathon. Viewing begins with the “first Chris” (O’Donnell) in six consecutive hours of “NCIS: LA,” followed by actor Chris Meloni in “Law & Order SVU.” So enjoy viewing all day and early Sunday evening with Chris number one (“NCIS:LA”) and Chris number two (“Law and Order SVU”) solving crimes.

You can always watch “The Masters” on CBS all weekend long or enjoy two days of USA Network marathons and catch up later Sunday evening because you know the playoffs will run long, as they always do. And right now, Bubba is atop the leader board, so tune into USA Network and enjoy.
