    Coronavirus may have pulled the plug on March Madness, but HBO is filling the void tonight with a new documentary looking at the FBI's two-year investigation into the hidden underworld of collegiate basketball recruiting. Also tonight: Little People, Big World returns for Season 20, Schitt's Creek airs its penultimate episode, and One Day at a Time hopes to build on last week's impressive numbers. Here's what's new and noteworthy on TV this Tuesday:

    DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE: HBO's documentary The Scheme takes a hard look at the FBI's two-year undercover investigation into corruption in the world of college basketball, featuring never before seen evidence and an interview with Christian Dawkins, the 26-year-old whose criminal enterprise was at the center of the investigation.

    NEW EPISODE: Though Pop TV brought One Day at a Time back from cancelation, they wisely chose to simulcast last week's Season 4 premiere on both Pop TV and TV Land, quadrupling their viewership in the process.
