In Theaters: Game
Last year's Fever Pitch captured the thrill of victory for Red Sox fans. Game 6
should remind them of the agony of defeat. Michael Keaton stars as a New York
playwright who is struggling to put on a good show in front of Broadway's most
notorious theater critic--while trying to find time to watch his beloved Red
Sox play the Mets in the 1986 World Series.

Patrick Dempsey is taking this grand marshall stuff seriously. The Grey's
Anatomy star (below) will get behind the wheel and compete in the Panoz GT
Series race at Sebring on Friday before fulfilling his ceremonial duties at

new R10 turbo diesel, which is expected to dominate the race. Speed Channel

The Honeymoon Is
Rahman was auditioning for Wedding Crashers II. On the eve of James Toney's
December nuptials in Cancun, Rahman (left) disrupted a TV interview with the
former WBA heavyweight champ, leading to a brawl in the lobby of a posh resort.
(They were attending an awards ceremony there.) "He tried to slap me,"
said Toney (right). "But he missed and scratched me like a woman."
Tonight they'll settle their differences--hopefully like men. Rahman is making
his first defense of the WBC belt he was awarded after Vitali Klitschko retired
in November. HBO 10 p.m.
Duke guard J.J. Redick (below) has been called arrogant and whiny--but is he
also a sex symbol? Redick's status as an eligible bachelor is one of the many
topics tackled in this wide-ranging interview that probes the mind of the most
reviled, and quite possibly the best, college basketball player in the country.
CSTV 8:30 p.m.
How good is LeBron James? Good enough to make Kobe Bryant look positively
one-dimensional. Sure, the Lakers guard is threatening to run away and hide
with the NBA scoring title; his average of 35.2 points is almost two points
better than Allen Iverson's. But King James is leading Cleveland in scoring
(30.5 per game) and assists (6.7) and is third in rebounding (7.0), giving him
a chance to become the first player since Michael Jordan in 1989-90 to average
30-7-7. ABC 1 p.m.
