Screen Gems: TV the week of August 1

12th & Delaware (9 p.m Monday, HBO) -- A tense documentary from the front lines of America's most 12th&delaware ferocious social struggle: a street corner in Fort Pierce where on one side stands an abortion clinic and, on the other, a so-called crisis-pregnancy center where anti-abortion counseling is done.

Aftermath with William Shatner (9 p.m. Monday, Bio Channel) -- Once we couldn't escape their names in the headlines: Jessica Lynch, the D.C. Sniper, the Unabomber, Mary Kay Letourneau. Now they're yesterday's news. This new where-are-they-now series opens with an interview with Bernhard Goetz, known in tabloids as the Subway Vigilante after he gunned down four men he thought were about to rob him in 1984.

One Water (9 p.m. Monday, Planet Green) -- A documentary about the worldwide struggle over water rights that was produced at the University of Miami and is narrated by Martin Sheen.

18 to Life (9 p.m. Tuesday, The CW) -- The CW, a network aimed a teenage girls, apparently couldn't find an American network stupid or venal enough to make a sitcom about the amusing foibles of teen marriage. Thanks for stepping in, Canada. What would we do without you?

The Real Housewives of Washington D.C. (9 p.m. Thursday, Bravo) -- After this, there's nothing left for Bravo to do but The Real Housewives of the Ninth Circle of Hell. Lucretia Borgia, Lizzie Borden and Lily Munster have reportedly already submitted audition tapes.
