Live X Games

9.30am, Espn

Tignes hosts the fourth annual European spin-off of the winter extreme sports fest. It's still a baby compared with its more established sibling, which might explain why famed snowboarder Shaun White has elected to "focus on training" rather than attend. Still, some big names will be present, including freestyle skier Bobby Brown and four-time X-Games superpipe-winning snowboarder Kelly Clark. Day one sees the men's and women's ski slopestyle and superpipe disciplines. Gwilym Mumford

Youngers

7.30pm, E4

First of eight episodes in E4's teen comedy-drama about two best friends from Peckham hoping to make it big in the UK rap scene. While Jay (Calvin Demba) has flunked his GCSEs, Yemi (Ade Oyefeso) has bagged a scholarship to a private school,

Ellen DeGeneres on Greyson Michael Chance: 'Trying to do it the right way'

  • Pop2it
Ellen DeGeneres is taping a variety-show special for TBS next week that will feature a number of acts, ranging from a Japanese troupe with a hit viral video to country stars Lady Antebellum.

It would also be natural to expect her protege, 12-year-old YouTube sensation Greyson Michael Chance, to be part of the lineup too, right? Wrong.

"He's getting ready for whatever is going to happen to him. There's a lot that's about to happen, and we're trying to do it the right way," DeGeneres says of Greyson, whom she made the first signee to her newly formed record label.

Kristen Stewart And Snoop Dogg Dominate This Week's 'Late Night Lineup'

  • MTV Newsroom
Well, that didn't take long. Jay Leno made his return to his old home on "The Tonight Show" at 11:35 p.m. and immediately bested longtime rival David Letterman in the ratings. Whether or not Leno can hold the lead is a big question, though he managed to top "The Late Show with David Letterman" with far fewer high-profile guests than his opponent.

This week probably won't see any significant shifts, as Letterman is only doing three shows this week. Still, those three will feature the likes of Jennifer Aniston on Monday (March 15), Snoop Dogg on Tuesday (March 16) and Gerard Butler on Wednesday (March 17). Leno will counter with "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi on Monday, recently-announced "Saturday Night Live" host Betty White on Tuesday, a performance by Orianthi on Thursday (March 18) and a visit from "Hot Tub Time Machine" star John Cusack on Friday (March 19).

One significant upside: Jimmy Fallon got a boost,
