It's a good week for TV watchers, with both "The Voice" and "Game of Thrones" returning to the small screen. And if you liked "Twilight," you might want to check out the new movie based on a novel by "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer, even if it's vampire-free.
MONDAY: 'The Voice'
"The Voice" returns for a fourth season with its first big judge shakeup. Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera? Out, at least for now. Usher and Shakira? In! The two single-name singing superstars will join fellow judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. They'll get help from battle-round advisers Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum, Sheryl Crow, Pharrell Williams and Joel Madden. (March 25, 8 p.m., NBC.)
SUNDAY: 'Game of Thrones'
Winter is coming! Again! Still! "Game of Thrones" fans have been waiting a long time for the third season of the HBO fantasy drama, and we're finally heading back to Westeros. This season is loosely based on the first half of the third book in the series, "A Storm of Swords." New characters will include Mance Rayder, the King-beyond-the-Wall; Unsullied eunuch captain Grey Worm; Catelyn's uncle Brynden Tully, the Blackfish, and more. (March 31, 9 p.m., HBO.)
FRIDAY: 'The Host'
Any movie with Stephenie Meyer's name on it has to be taken seriously after her huge worldwide hit with the "Twilight" series. "The Host," based on another book by Meyer, takes a completely different tack. Instead of vampires, it focuses on alien invaders who have been taking over the minds of humans. One human, Melanie (Saoirse Ronan) refuses to give in to the alien, and they form an emotional connection. Wow, that might be even harder to explain than the whole Team Edward-Team Jacob thing. (Opens March 29.)
