Screen Gems: TV the week of May 30

Are We There Yet? (9 p.m. Wednesday, TBS) -- The 2005 comic movie about a marriage between a Arewethere playboy bachelor and a mother of two teens gets the TV treatment. Instead of Ice Cube and Nia Long as the not-always-happy couple, we get Terry Crews (Everybody Hates Chris) and Essence Atkins (Half And Half). Actually, Ice Cube's there. You just can't see him: He's the executive producer.

Uncommon Courage: Breakout at Chosin (8 p.m. Monday, Smithsonian Channel) -- A brisk documentary about a crucial mission that saved thousands of lives during the most savage battle of the Korean War. Check back later today for a full review.

Carole King-James Taylor: Live at the Troubador (9 p.m. Friday, WPBT-PBS 2) -- Wouldn't it be cool if it were 1971? Richard Nixon is president, Taiwan is in the United Nations, Adam 12 is the cutting edge of cop shows, and Carole King and James Taylor are touring together. Well, one out of four ain't bad. (If you live in South Florida, think of the program as a preview of their live show on Saturday at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise).

Note: Days and times for PBS shows are for the Miami area, and may differ elsewhere.
