« Abortion: Hard choices and bad choices | Main | The ugly side of 'Nip/Tuck's Kelly Carlson »

Screens: TV the week of October 28

UndertakingThe Undertaking (10 p.m. Tuesday, WPBT-PBS 2) -- Trick or treat? We don't need no stinkin' trick or treat when we've got this episode of Frontline about what really goes on in embalming rooms.

Lost Book of Nostradamus (8 p.m. Sunday, History Channel) -- Scholars say a book recently discovered in a forgotten nook of the National Library in Rome may be the final work of the 16th century seer. Supposedly it contains drawings that foretell World Wars I and II, the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II and the rise of Islamic fundamentalism. Though, as usual, it's silent on who will
win the World Series, the next kid to get the silver medallion in Kid Nation, or anything else truly useful.

Carlson1 Nip/Tuck (10 p.m. Tuesday, FX) -- Those priapic plastic surgeons are back for a fifth season, not that anyone cares or is going to watch since the show stole away like a thief in the night and moved itself from Miami to Los Angeles, and the entire cast and crew can die screaming like pigs in Hell for all we care. (Except for that cute Kelly Carlson, of course.) Not that we're bitter or anything, you traitorous commie bastards.

Gwtw Donald Trump marathon (8 p.m. Saturday, Turner Classic Movies) -- No matter how much you love Rosie O'Donnell or hate The Apprentice, it's hard to hold a grudge against a guy who, allowed to program Turner Classic Movies for a night, chooses The African Queen, Gone With the Wind and Citizen Kane.

PBS airdates and times may different outside South Florida.
