Screens: TV the week of March 25

Private Screenings: Jane Fonda (8 p.m. Thursday, Turner Classic Movies) -- Fonda sits down to talk Jane_fonda with network host Robert Osborne about her life (one tidbit guaranteed not to be mentioned: she was, no kidding, Miss Army Recruiting 1962) and movies, and whatever you think about the former, some of the latter have been stunning. TCM is devoting the rest of the night to some of Fonda's more memorable films, including Barefoot In The Park, They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, The China Syndrome and Comes A Horseman. What, no Barbarella?

The UCLA Dynasty (10 p.m. Monday, HBO) -- Anybody who thinks winning a second consecutive NCAA basketball championship would make the Florida Gators a dynasty needs to watch this documentary on how UCLA and coach John Wooden won 10 titles between 1964 and 1975. Highlight: Bill Walton recalls an impassioned speech in which he told Wooden that the coach had no right to dictate his hair length. To his surprise, Wooden agreed: "I just have the right to determine who is going to play.'' Guess who won.

Ultimate Coyote Ugly Search (8 p.m. Friday, CMT) -- Five teams of women compete to write the most
insightful essay on the works of Betty Friedan. Oops, wait, CMT said that had to be trimmed out in the editing room, so instead it's just eight weeks of jiggly chicks dancing on bartops for a $50,000 prize. Guess you'll have to wait for the DVD to see those smokin' essays.

Agree on Barbarella. Also, no Cat Ballou?
