Living legend

It goes without saying that "The American Comedy Awards" will feature a lot of promising, up 'n' coming comics, but the real draw here is the presentation of the Johnny Carson Award to Bill Cosby, a legend who is still killing it today. His appearances on "The Tonight Show" were almost as impressive as those Pudding Pops commercials. 8 p.m. KARE, Ch. 11

Mad man

Marc Maron returns for a second season of "Maron," a sort-of public therapy session that is rarely laugh out-loud funny, but offers great insight into the neuroses of the creative mind. Conan O'Brien, Ray Romano and Sarah Silverman are among the upcoming guest stars. 9 p.m. IFC

How she met the mothers

Get a jump on Mother's Day with an episode of "Instant Mom" that brings together Marion Ross ("Happy Days"), Florence Henderson ("The Brady Bunch"), Meredith Baxter ("Family Ties") and Jackée ("Sister, Sister"). The foursome offers advice to Tia Mowry's character, who apparently didn't learn anything about parenting from watching reruns on Nick at Nite. 7 p.m. Nick
