This week's TV Movies


The new special "An Evening of Stars: Tribute to Lionel Richie" salutes the multiple-Grammy-winning R&B singer-songwriter in a gala event to benefit the United Negro College Fund. But the party lasts all night long . . . all night long . . . (BET, 10 p.m.)


High-powered attorney Patty Hewes (Glenn Close, below) and her onetime protégé/sometime nemesis Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) continue to circle each other like the sharks they are as the darkly thrilling legal drama "Damages" returns for its third season. (FX, 10 p.m.)


Retrieving a witness from Paris seems like it should be an easy assignment for Tony and Ziva (Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo). And it would be, except for the assassin lurking onboard their return flight. It all goes down on a new "NCIS."(CBS, 8 p.m.)


On the debut of "Tavis Smiley Reports" -- the first in a series of prime-time specials -- the author and talk-show host gets a behind-the-scenes look at U.S. diplomatic efforts when he shadows Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on her appointed rounds. (KCET, 8 p.m.)


Known for his myriad Twitter musings almost as much as for his brand of inoffensive soft rock, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter John Mayer performs a handful of his hits and answers fans' questions on a new edition of "Storytellers."(VH1, 8 p.m.)


Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's . . . Warrior Angel? A newly minted masked avenger (guest star Carlo Marks, above) spells trouble for our boy Clark (Tom Welling) on a new episode of the young-Superman drama "Smallville."(KTLA, 8 p.m.)


There she is . . . last year's winner, Katie Stam, will be on hand to help crown "Miss America 2010" as women from all 50 states, two U.S. territories and the District of Columbia vie for the title in the 88th edition of this storied pageant. (TLC, 8 p.m.)
