TV devotes little time to holy season

Viewers looking to television to reflect the solemnity of Passover and Good Friday will find the pickings rather slim. The holy week series "In the Footsteps of Jesus" (8 p.m., History) concludes with "Mysteries of Golgotha," a look at the legends and archaeological sites associated with the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. PAX repeats the 2000 drama "Thomas" (7 p.m., Pax), an Italian-made biography of the apostle (Ricky Tognazzi), known as Doubting Thomas, who required tangible evidence of the resurrection of Jesus (Danny Quinn).

Tonight's other highlights

  • Arsenio Hall is host of "Star Search" (7 p.m., CBS).
  • Ali Landry guest stars on "Fastlane" (7 p.m., Fox).
  • Mike tries to make peace with his dying father on "Hack" (8 p.m., CBS).
