This week's TV picks
"Dancing With the Stars" 7 p.m., ABC: The competitors hoof it to movie music. I'm hoping for a cha-cha to the theme from "Jaws."
"Terra Nova" 7 p.m., Fox: Dinosaurs and time-travelers from a dystopian future, I get, but a virus that causes memory loss and paranoia? That's just science fiction gibberish.
"Monday Night Football" 7:30 p.m., ESPN: The Bears take on the Lions in Detroit. Go, Bears!
"The War of 1812" 8 p.m., PBS: Reenactments and scholarly knowledge examine the War.
"Last Man Standing" 7 p.m., ABC: If the premiere of this awful Tim Allen sitcom throwback is any indication, it won't be the last show standing.
"Women, War and Peace" 9 p.m., PBS: Matt Damon narrates this five-part exploration of women's rights in war- and peace-time.
"H8R" 7 p.m., The CW: Levi Johnston faces his haters. Could this mark Sarah Palin's CW debut?
"Modern Family" 8 p.m., ABC: What could make this show even funnier? David Cross as an aggravating city councilman, that's what.
"Revenge" 9 p.m., ABC: Emily turns her vengeful sights from the rich folk what done her daddy wrong to a therapist who helped destroy her childhood.
"Charlie's Angels" 7 p.m., ABC: This show is now remaking individual episodes of the original - tonight's outing, in which the angels are jailed in Cuba, is based on an episode from 1976.
"The Big Bang Theory" 7 p.m., CBS: "Star Trek" universe denizens Wil Wheaton and Brent Spiner guest star.
"The Office" 8 p.m., CBS: The rejuvenated, Steve Carell-less series visits - wait for it - Schrute Farms, always a good sign.
"Independent Lens" 9 p.m., PBS: New host Mary Louise-Parker ("Weeds") introduces Season 13's premiere look at a troubled, Muslim-themed superhero comic book in "Wham! Bam! Islam."
"Ghost Adventures" 8 p.m., Travel: Personally, I think the Winchester house, explored tonight, really is haunted - by the 6,000 camera crews that have already explored it on these ghost shows.
"Rules of Engagement" 7 p.m., CBS: A first-run, network sitcom on a Saturday night? If I were David Spade, I would be looking for a new job.
"Sunday Night Football" 7:15 p.m., NBC: Bears vs. Vikings in Chicago. Go, Bears!
"Masterpiece Mystery" 8 p.m., PBS: "Harry Potter's" Jason Isaacs portrays Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie investigating murder and missing persons.
