In "Mind Games," a new ABC drama-with-comedy premiering Tuesday, Steve Zahn and Christian Slater play brothers setting themselves up in the manipulation business. "We change people's minds without them knowing we did it," is how brother Clark Edwards (Zahn) describes their work, which takes "little observations" about human behavior "that had just been lying around in academic journals" and turns them into "powerful tools" to achieve desired outcomes. There is reference also to Jedi mind tricks.

To fans of nostalgia TV, Penny Marshall will always be Laverne DeFazio in "Laverne and Shirley," which ran on ABC from 1976 to 1983. But she went on to become one of Hollywood's major directors with "Big" in 1988, the first film directed by a woman to gross more than $100 million. Her latest film, "Riding in Cars With Boys," starring Drew Barrymore, Steve Zahn and Brittany Murphy, opens Friday. COMPUTER: It's a little black thing. I don't know what kind it is. It's sitting here on the bed.

THE last of the four "Lonesome Dove" novels to be filmed (and the last to be written, though chronologically the second in the series), "Comanche Moon" finally joins its fellows as a miniseries this week. It has been 11 years since the book was published, and a dozen since the last "Dove" adaptation. I can't say why it has taken so long for it to arrive. (It premieres Sunday night on CBS and continues on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"Management" is a mellow slow dance of a romantic comedy that skips the "meet-cute" in favor of "awkward encounter" -- a bottle of bad wine and a modest motel room where absolutely nothing sexy or romantic happens, which turns out to be strangely appealing.

ON an old studio lot outside London, a production crew began work on the movie "Sahara" in November 2003 by staging the crash of a vintage airplane. But when the film opened in theaters in April 2005, the sequence had been deleted. "In the context of the movie, it didn't work," said director Breck Eisner. The cost of the 46-second clip: more than $2 million. This kind of spending, according to accounting records, helped turn "Sahara" into one of the biggest financial flops in Hollywood history.

Eddie Murphy just may be the anti-W.C. Fields. The comic actor with the wicked grin and a penchant for raunch failed to heed Fields' famous advice about avoiding kids and animals, and has thrived among them in blockbusters such as "Doctor Dolittle," "The Nutty Professor" and their sequels. In dire need of a hit after a string of bombs (anyone remember "Showtime"?), Murphy teams up again with "Doctor Dolittle" director Steve Carr and surrounds himself here with tykes aplenty.

* New This Week: "Riding in Cars With Boys," which stars Drew Barrymore as a teen mother who goes on to become a writer, is a failed film that gives glimpses of the success that might have been. Buried under the miscalculations, the shamelessness, the off-putting and inappropriate broadness are sporadically visible souvenirs of a good project gone bad, hints of the unusual, bittersweet story that got away.
