The seasons for both "Dancing with the Stars" and "America's Funniest Home Videos"� (ABC Family, 10 p.m.) may be over, but� there's one more task for Tom Bergeron: Hosting the 2009 Scripps National Spelling Bee (ABC, 8 p.m.).A record 293 champion spellers from age 9 to 15 were entered in the 82nd annual competition in Washington this week.

Early rounds today will be covered by the network better known as the worldwide leader in sports.

Chris McKendry of "SportsCenter" will host the rounds that start at 10 a.m.

and 1:15 p.m.

on ESPN.� Erin Andrews will be sideline reporter for both ESPN and ABC coverage.Last year the winning word, "guerdon,"� spelled a win for Sameer Mishra of Indiana.Bergeron will see one familiar face while hosting: Shawn Johnson, the Olympic gold medalist who won "Dancing with the Stars" last week, is planning to stop in, since her former teacher in junior high, Mary Brooks, is head judge of the event.For a competition that exercises a different set of muscles, auditions wrap up on "So You Think You Can Dance" (Fox, 8 p.m.)�in Seattle and Los Angeles (although auditions are held today in Boston for the fall season of the show).An unexpected 21st century hardship for Charles Dickens' character Little Dorrit came last week� on CPTV, when they repeated the third episode of the adaptation on "Masterpiece Classic" (CPTV, 9 p.m.) instead of the fourth episode that was scheduled.So if viewers thought the story was dragging and starting to repeat itself a bit, they were right.Officials said a glitch prevented showing part four, so replaying part three was the "only viable option." So chapter four runs tonight and the concluding fifth episode will now run next week, on June 4.The third-graders on Utah's Mighty Cheetahs were so completely dominating their girls' league, they decided to compete against the boys.� The documentary "Kick Like a Girl" (HBO, 6 p.m.) chronicles the move, in which they won a few games, but more importantly won the respect of the boys who initially dismissed them.It's meant for a girls' audience, as is the rest of the schedule tonight: "Beginning Filmmaking" (HBO, 5:30 p.m.), in which a documentary maker teachers his daughter some of what he knows; "Hard Times for an American Girl: the Great Depression" (HBO, 6:30 p.m.) in which girls talk to those who grew up in the other Depression, then the fictional film "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl" (HBO, 7 p.m.) starring Abigail Breslin.Oprah Winfrey was unavailable to be interviewed for a documentary about how her endorsement can make or break a product.

That makes Carl Quintanilla's report "The Oprah Effect" (CNBC, 9 p.m.) wanting as a documentary, but it may prove its own point by using her name in the title.The Latino Images in Film series on Turner Classic Movies ends with a look at families, in "Popi" (8 p.m.) and "My Family: Mi Familia" (10 p.m.) as well as couple of revisionist Westerns: "The Ballad of Gregorio Cortez" (12:15 a.m.) and "Lone Star" (2:15 a.m.).The weeklong series of films about contemporary female artists continues with the film "Guest of Cindy Sherman" (Sundance, 7 p.m.) by Paul Hasegawa-Overacker, also known as Paul H-O.The one baseball game on today comes early: Red Sox at Twins (NESN, 1 p.m.) Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals has Magic at Cavaliers (TNT, 8:30 p.m.).
