TV This Week

November 13, 2011

SUNDAY

It's like déjà vu all over again on "Family Guy," when enfant terrible Stewie and his pooch-pal Brian use Stewie's trusty time machine to reinsert themselves into the pilot episode of the irreverent animated sitcom. What could possibly go wrong? (Fox, 9 p.m.)

Your friends and neighbors: The new eight-part docu-series "All-American Muslim" profiles members of Dearborn, Mich.'s large Muslim community — like Suehaila Amen, below — as they struggle for acceptance in the culture at large. (TLC, 10 p.m.)

MONDAY

Wendy Doulton is "The Headhuntress" — but don't worry, she's not out to separate your noggin from your neck. She's a British-born, L.A.-based corporate recruiter with a no-nonsense style putting job seekers through their paces in this special. (Bravo, 10 p.m.)

TUESDAY

Surely, they joust: Heavily armored anachronistic types mount up with lance and shield to clean each other's clocks in the reality series "Knights of Mayhem." It's like Medieval Times, without the free soda refills. (6, 7, 9 and 10 p.m. National Geographic)

WEDNESDAY

Thanksgiving is just a week or so away. But before you baste that bird and then gobble-gobble-gobble it down, check out "My Life as a Turkey," the touching tale of naturalist Joe Hutto and some of his fine feathered friends, on a new "Nature." (KOCE, 8 p.m.)

THURSDAY

Regis, we hardly knew ye: The talented Mr. Philbin, set to end his tenure as co-host of morning TV's "Live! with Regis and Kelly" next Friday, looks back over his decades-long career in a chat with Katie Couric on a special "20/20." (ABC, 8 p.m.)

FRIDAY

Heart's Ann and Nancy Wilson and Blondie's Deborah Harry are just some of the "Women Who Rock" in this new music doc. And the original "American Idol" (below) does likewise in "Unplugged: Kelly Clarkson." (KOCE, 9 p.m.; VH1, 11 p.m.)

SATURDAY

Like "The Office"? We still do. The workplace comedy's Rainn Wilson stars in the R-rated 2010 superhero send-up "Super." Love "Community"? We very much do, and one of that college-set sitcom's MVPs takes center stage in the stand-up special "Donald Glover: Weirdo." (Showtime, 9:30 p.m.; Comedy Central, 11 p.m.)
