It may seem a little warm for March, but there's still plenty of ice on the tube. Check out CBS tonight.

"Michael Flatley: Lord of the Dance" (7 p.m.-9 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- "River-dance" star Flatley performs in his own Irish dance-and-music spectacular. (Times are approximate; remember, it's pledge time.) PBS.

"Star Trek: Voyager" (7 p.m.-8 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- Capt. Janeway and the gang finally make it back to Earth; only problem is, it's 20th-century Earth, where they have to prevent an egotistical jerk of a computer genius from tampering with the future and ending life as everyone's come to know it. If you saw this two-parter when it aired in November, you know whether the world survives. If not, watch and find out. You'll have fun. UPN.

"Dangerous Minds" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- With the school about to celebrate its 50th anniversary, superteacher Louanne and the kids struggle to cope with the realization that the school's namesake was a racist. ABC.

"Scott Hamilton: Upside Down" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Scott Hamilton, a crowd-pleaser if ever there were one, takes to the ice with no one to please but the crowd. Helping him out are fellow Olympians Kristi Yamaguchi, Kurt Browning and Ekaterina Gordeeva. CBS.

"Early Edition" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Gary serves on a jury and does a big no-no: He reads a newspaper. Even worse, it's tomorrow's newspaper today, and he finds out something he really shouldn't. Kevin McCarthy, who tried so desperately to avoid becoming a pod person in the original "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," guest-stars. CBS.

"Profiler" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Here's a nasty scenario: A vigilante in upstate New York is killing criminals who manage to wriggle their way free of the justice system, then sending tapes of their deaths to the local TV station. NBC.

"On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (12: 05 p.m.-3: 05 p.m.), "License To Kill" (3: 05 p.m.-6: 05 p.m.), "The Man With the Golden Gun" (8: 05 p.m.-10: 50 p.m.) and "You Only Live Twice" (10: 50 p.m.-1: 20 a.m., TBS) -- Four movies, four Bonds: In order, you get George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton, Roger Moore and Sean Connery. Pick your favorite (say Lazenby, and be unique).

"In Grizzly Country" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., repeats midnight-1 a.m., Discovery) -- What better way to spend a Saturday than hanging out with a bunch of Alaskan bears?

"Silence of the Lambs" (10: 55 p.m.-1 a.m., The Movie Channel) -- Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins and some fava beans combine for one of the most honored pictures in Oscar history, one of only three films to win Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Director. Cool movie, too.
