Mar 27 2011 12:55 am CET

If you are planning on staying in today you have a lot of television options. FMC has a Cleopatra marathon, Sandra Lee is back in the kitchen, two more teams will advance to the Final Four, and Showtime has two finales tonight. Here's what's on TV Sunday.

In honor of Elizabeth Taylor's passing, Fox Movie Channel will air a 24-hour marathon of the big-budget (for its time) epic Cleopatra. The film co-stars Richard Burton and Rex Harrison. The marathon begins at 6am.

The First Girlfriend of the great state of New York, also known as Sandra Lee, is back to terrorize the kitchen. If you think I am being completely unfair, I present you "Kwanzaa Cake":

A new season of culinary crimes against humanity Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee begins today at 11:30am on Food Network.

NCAA March Madness continues with the second half of the Elite Eight this afternoon on CBS. At 2pm Eastern in San Antonio, 11-Seed VCU challenges 1-Seed Kansas. Will the final top seed be eliminated or will Kansas earn the right to face Butler in the Final Four? Over in Newark, 4-Kentucky takes on 2-North Carolina at 4:55pm Eastern. The winner will meet up with UConn in Houston next weekend.

Lastly, on Showtime two shows have their season finale tonight. At 9pm, Califonication closes its fourth season with guest star Rob Lowe. At 10pm, Shameless ends its debut season when the truth about Steve's actual job is revealed. Both shows are expected to return.
