"Winter Olympics," 8 a.m.-1 p.m., 6-10 p.m.,10:30 p.m.-1 a.m., NBC. On the final full day of competition, the gold medals flow. In the afternoon, women have 5,000-meter speed skating and 12.5-kilometer biathlon. At night, short-track speed skating includes men's 500-meter, women's 1,000-meter and men's 5,000-meter relay. There's also four-man bobsled and men's 15-kilometer biathlon. The bronze-medal men's hockey game is this afternoon.

"Mrs. Harris," 6 p.m., HBO. Well bred and well educated, Jean Harris was headmistress of a prep school in suburban New York. She also was the longtime mistress of Dr. Herman Tarnower, author of the best-selling "Complete Scarsdale Medical Diet." In 1980, by accident or intention, she shot and killed him. That story has perplexed people for decades. Strong performances from Annette Bening and Ben Kingsley result in a sometimes-comic view of a tormented relationship.


"Forrest Gump" (1994), 7 p.m., ABC. Tom Hanks is a slow-thinking, good-natured chap, entangled in historic events with great support from Gary Sinise, Robin Wright, Mykelti Williamson, and Sally Field.
