TV highlights for the week of March 2-8. All times are Eastern; check local listings. Ratings are listed for shows when available (see explanation box below).

SUNDAY - 3/2

Journey of the Heart (CBS, 9-11 p.m.): Cybill Shepherd gives a strong performance as the mother of a "musical savant" in this fact-based drama. Tony Johnston (Chris Demetral) is blind and was diagnosed as autistic. But he also has a musical genius that lets him break free of these difficulties and a mother who dedicates her life to giving him the music he needs to overcome these challenges. (TV-G) MONDAY - 3/3 EZ Streets (CBS, 10-11 p.m.): This critically lauded, viewer-starved crime drama starring Ken Olin and Jason Gedrick was yanked last fall after a mere two episodes. Thanks to a campaign by ardent fans, the bleak, intricately written show has a new lease on prime time. But can "Streets" survive when it's at the same address where it did poorly before: Wednesday night at 10 p.m.? (TV-14) Calling the Ghosts (Cinemax, 11 p.m.-12 midnight): This poignant program looks head on at the atrocities committed during the ethnic war in Bosnia. In it, two Muslim women describe the conditions, including torture and rape, which they and others endured during their captivity in a detention camp run by Serbs. Their testimony has resulted in the indictment of some of those responsible. Actress Julia Ormond is an executive producer for the documentary, which has won several film-festival awards. TUESDAY - 3/4 Just Shoot Me (NBC, 9:30-10 p.m.): Laura San Giacomo joins the ranks of female journalists populating the Peacock network. Hopefully, this new sitcom co-starring George Segal and David Spade has more zing than "Suddenly Susan" or "The Naked Truth." (TV-PG) The Practice (ABC, 10-11 p.m.): Courtroom drama is the staple of this promising series by David E. Kelley ("Picket Fences," "Chicago Hope"). Dylan McDermott stars as the head of a Boston law firm whose ideals are deeper than his pockets. The show is one of 10 new comedies and dramas premiering this week. (TV-PG) WEDNESDAY - 3/5 Temporarily Yours (CBS, 8:30-9 p.m.): From the people who brought you "The Nanny" comes this comedy about a brash New Yorker who has a new adventure each week as a temp-agency employee. Star Debi Mazar plays the role with Fran Drescher-like aplomb, but bad writing weighs the debut down. It perks up a bit in the scenes with the tightly wound head of the agency (Joanna Gleason). (TV-PG) Feds (CBS, 9-10 p. …
