Screen Gems: TV the week of November 7

Conan (11 p.m. Monday, TNT) -- Earlier this year, following his departure from The Tonight Show after Conantbs four lackluster months as host, Conan O'Brien started sending out tweets about doing a new show with a squirrel. Now that he's back on a new TNT late-night show, let's see if he was telling the truth.

Pastport Cuba -- The Search For Nicolita (9 p.m. Sunday, SiTV) -- When swimsuit designer Nicole Di Rocco wanted to visit Cuba in search of a model for her new line of 1950s-style swimwear, she ran into unexpected opposition -- from her parents. Cuban exiles, they thought the trip amounted to an endorsement of Fidel Castro. Follow the family feud in this documentary.

Days of our Lives (1 p.m. Monday, NBC) -- After Guiding Light died at 57 and As The World Turns at 54, Days of our Liveshas to be considered a senior citizen as it turns 45. Watch the birthday episode Monday and offer congratulations on the nice present from NBC: the show will be telecast for the first time in HD.

Tracy Morgan: Black And Blue (10 p.m. Saturday, HBO)-- The idiosyncratic star of NBC's 30 Rock, whose brand of humor is as difficult to describe as it is not to pee your pants while laughing at it, gets a stand-up special.
