We’ll find out tonight on “TAR: Family Edition” (9 pm, Ch 12). The Linz family again starts out second tonight as teams go searching for the World’s Largest Office Chair somewhere in Alabama.

This is always one of my most fun nights of the year. Rick Ludwin, the NBC vice president who supervises Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien and SNL (and 1970 Miami grad), makes his annual trip to Miami Unviersity in Oxford to chat with students. His Sunday night presentations are always filled with great TV insights (a year ago he explained how Ashlee Simpson had screwed up the night before on SNL). His topic this year: “Conan O’Brien: Then and Now.”
Lecture is free and open to public at 7 p.m. Sunday in Williams Hall, under the TV tower on Oak St. (near Spring St.)
