Screen Gems: TV the week of March 29

Cupid (10 p.m. Tuesday, WPLG-ABC 10) -- Way back before he charmed us all with Veronica Mars, Cupid Rob Thomas produced a short-lived ABC series called Cupid about a mental patient who thought he was the Roman god of love, sent to Earth to match up 100 couples. (It starred, believe it or not, Jeremy Piven, who plays the sleazeball agent on HBO's Entourage.) The seven people who actually saw it thought Cupid was disarmingly sweet. Well, now we'll a chance to find out: Thomas has talked ABC into letting him remake Cupid, this time with Will & Grace's Bobby Cannavale in the title role.

House (8 p.m. Monday, WSVN-Fox 7) -- Even if you're not a fan of this series about a doctor so irascible that he prefers watching patients on medical soap operas to seeing his own, this episode may be interesting. It stars Mos Def as a paralyzed accident victim who can communicate only through eye blinks -- and it's told mostly from his perspective, shot with special camera equipment.

Coming Home (8 p.m. Wednesday, WPBT-PBS 2) -- Sesame Street characters Elmo and Rosita join Queen Latifah and John Mayer in this special aimed at helping kids cope with daddies -- and these days, possibly mommies -- coming home from Iraq with scars, both visible and invisible. Wouldn't it be nice if this item was some kind of grim joke? But it's not.

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