"Olympic Ice," 3 p.m., USA Network; then "Winter Olympics," 4-5 p.m., 6-10 p.m., midnight-early morning, NBC. Four years ago, Americans took a fresh interest in pairs skating.

"24," 8 p.m., Fox. Jack tries to go undercover with the terrorists.

"Courting Alex," 8:30 p.m., CBS. Alex's new romance diverts attention from her neighbor.
