TV alerts: “Sarah Connor,” basketball, “Scandal”

OK, I’ll admit it: I gave up on The Sarah Connor Chronicles after the third episode. For me, Lena Headey‘s hotness just couldn’t make up for the convoluted story lines and John’s terrible acting. But I know I’m in the minority, and plenty of people love the show.

Tonight’s two-hour season finale has a very tantalizing description: “Sarah enters into a business deal with a mysterious partner.” If only Piper Perabo were playing the partner.

Meanwhile, if real-life showdowns are more your style, there’s another finale tonight: the women’s college basketball Big East regular-season title game. UConn takes on Rutgers at 7/6c on ESPN2.

And there’s one more face-off tonight — probably the most dramatic one. Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett give female bonding a new meaning in Notes on a Scandal at midnight/11c on HBO2. The film polarized lesbian audiences (at least here on AfterEllen.com — see my take and Malinda’s for examples), but no matter how you feel about it, you’ll probably be fascinated.
