This week's TV Movies

Prime choices for the week of Nov. 15 - 22


Long before "Lost," there was "The Prisoner," about a group of strangers held captive in a remote seaside village by a sinister organization. Jim Caviezel and Sir Ian McKellen star in a new miniseries based on that 1960s cult classic. (AMC, 8 p.m. through Tue.)


"Gossip Girl" goes gaga . . . Lady Gaga, that is. The brassy dance-pop diva (below) -- she of the outrageous costumes and infinite wig collection -- performs her hit single "Bad Romance" on a new episode of the teen-themed drama. (KTLA, 9 p.m.)


The documentary series "Frontline" presents "A Death in Tehran," which explores the recent electoral upheaval in the Islamic Republic of Iran through a profile of pro-democracy protester turned martyr Neda Soltani. (KCET, 9 p.m.)


Few actresses bring the funny and the sexy like "The 40-Year-Old Virgin's" Elizabeth Banks, who guest stars on a new "Modern Family" as the gal pal of the comedy series' resident gay couple (Jesse Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet). (ABC, 9 p.m.)


It is said that he appears somewhere in the background of every episode, but tonight, the otherworldly figure known as "The Observer" (Michael Cerveris) is once again front and center on a new installment of the sci-fi drama "Fringe." (Fox, 9 p.m.)


What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas . . . unless, of course, you get married there. The new reality series "Happily Ever Faster" documents the "I do's" at a family-owned wedding chapel deep in the heart of Sin City. (TLC, 10 and 10:30 p.m.)


Oscar nominee Meryl Streep proves a hard habit to break as an imperious nun in writer-director John Patrick Shanley's 2008 adaptation of his Broadway hit "Doubt." Philip Seymour Hoffman (below with Streep), Amy Adams and Viola Davis also star. (Starz, 9 p.m.)


While the recently axed Ashley Simpson will soon be headed back from Wentz she came, the new "Melrose Place" is bringing back original series star Heather Locklear -- as the ruthless Amanda -- to show these kids how it's done. (KTLA, 9 p.m. Tue.)


The wisecracking CGI critters from the hit film franchise "Madagascar" are called upon to save Christmas in the new holiday special "Merry Madagascar." One way to save Christmas: No Christmas specials until after Thanksgiving. (NBC, 8 p.m. Tue.)
