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.

(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).
