TV This Week

March 13, 2011


There's a lot at stake when Ingrid Bergman portrays "Joan of Arc" in the 1948 historical drama, firing up a mini-marathon of films about the legendary 15th century French heroine that includes Renée Maria Falconetti in director Carl Theodor Dreyer's gripping 1928 silent "The Passion of Joan of Arc." (TCM, 5 and 9:30 p.m.)

Dave? Dave's not here, man. But Homer is, along with Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, a.k.a. Cheech & Chong. The reunited 1970s-era stoner/slacker comedy duo gets animated when they guest star on "The Simpsons." Far out, man. (Fox, 8 p.m.)


Keep on trekkin'! LeVar "Geordi" Burton from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and Walter "Chekov" Koenig from the original series join William "Capt. Kirk" Shatner on season-ending installments of "Shatner's Raw Nerve." (Biography, 7 and 7:30 p.m.)


"Hey, pal, ya got a building permit for that comb-over?" — or something similar — is probably the tamest thing anyone will have to say about the real-estate mogul/reality TV star at the "Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump." (Comedy Central, 10:30 p.m.)


Just last week, James Taylor (above right, with Allison Janney) was featured in an item on this very page about singer-songwriters. Now he's back, playing a singer-songwriter who is not James Taylor, on a new episode of "Mr. Sunshine." (ABC, 9:30 p.m.)


"Kathy Griffin: 50 & Not Pregnant" finds the sassy, brassy comic doing her celebrity smackdown routine in Milwaukee. Frankly, our Emmy-winning gal deserves a bump — maybe not the baby kind, but at least up from the D- to the C-list. (Bravo, 9 p.m.)


"Supernanny," we hardly knew ye: After six seasons of schooling America's children and their parents on the difference between acting naughty and being nice, British nanny and childcare expert Jo Frost and her reality series take a final bow. (ABC, 8 p.m.)


He knows you are, but what is he? He's Paul Reubens, better known as bow-tied, skinny-suited man-child Pee-wee Herman (below), and he's bringing his signature silliness to the stage once again in "The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway." (HBO, 10 p.m.)
