Monica Parales, Jacque Nimble and Mandy Rain are plaid-skirted "School Gyrls" who meet in detention and go on to form a pop-music trio in this tune-filled made-for-cable fable, featuring an appearance by teen heartthrob Justin Bieber. (Nickelodeon, 7 p.m.)


The 2007 disappearance of aviator Steve Fossett near the California-Nevada line made national news. But dozens of similar cases have gone largely unreported. The new special "Lost in the Nevada Triangle" investigates. The truth is out there. (National Geographic, 5 and 8 p.m.)


The season premiere of the newsmagazine "Frontline" sends a video journalist "Behind Taliban Lines" for a rare ground-level look at the resurgent Afghan insurgency. A second segment explores Pakistan's troubled public school system. (KCET, 9 p.m.)


On "Faces of America With Henry Louis Gates Jr.," the professor traces Oscar winner Meryl Streep's genealogy to Puritan-era New England and follows the family line of Eva Longoria Parker back to 17th century Spain. (KCET, 8 p.m.)


The ladies' figure skating final is always one of the marquee events at the "XXI Winter Olympics." We'll keep our fingers crossed for 2010 U.S. champion Rachael Flatt and/or her teammates to be on the medals platform in Vancouver. (NBC, 8 p.m.)


Counting Crows, Sugarland and Seal are among the artists who "come together" to mark the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' "Abbey Road" at the selfsame London recording studio on the third-season premiere of "Live From Abbey Road." (Sundance, 8 p.m.)


2009's "Fast & Furious" -- the fourth film in the action franchise -- finally reunites Vin Diesel and Paul Walker from the series' 2001 debut. But the real attraction remains those illegal yet sleek street machines, tearing up the asphalt all around L.A. (HBO, 8 p.m.)


Terry Crews, best known as the tough-but-tender paterfamilias on the sitcom "Everybody Hates Chris," puts his real-life parenting skills on display in the new docu-series "The Family Crews." Does father really know best? We'll see. (BET, 9 and 9:30 p.m. Sun.)


In the new special "Sinbad: Where U Been?," the seafaring hero relates the wondrous tale of his seven magical voyages to strange and distant - oh, wait, that's the other Sinbad. They must mean the stand-up comic. (Comedy Central, 10 p.m. Sun.)
