This week's TV Movies


SUNDAY

"Masterpiece Classic" marks Holocaust Remembrance Day with a new adaptation of "The Diary of Anne Frank." Ellie Kendrick, below, stars as the young Jewish girl who hid with her family in an Amsterdam attic during the dark days of WWII. (KCET, 9 p.m.)

MONDAY

A very pregnant Dorota (Zuzanna Szadkowski), Miss Blair's (Leighton Meester) long-suffering maid, finally marries her longtime beau, the doorman Vanya (Aaron Schwartz), on a new "Gossip Girl." (KTLA, 9 p.m.)

TUESDAY

Webster's defines "glee" as "exultant high-spirited joy," which is exactly what fans of "Glee" will be feeling when the singing, dancing comedy-drama returns with all-new episodes. "Wicked's" Idina Menzel guest stars. (Fox, 9:28 p.m.)

WEDNESDAY

First it was "buh-bye, braces" and now it's "buh-bye, Betty." Sad to say it, but "Ugly Betty," the Emmy-winning comedy starring America Ferrera, bids farewell this week after four fun-and-flirty seasons. You're gone, girl. (ABC, 10 p.m.)

THURSDAY

Remember "Lazy Sunday"? How 'bout Tina Fey as Sarah Palin? In case you don't, the new special "Saturday Night Live in the 2000s: Time and Again" recalls the sketch-comedy series' best bits from the past decade. (NBC, 9 p.m.)

FRIDAY

If you want slaughter, we can get it for wholesale. "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," the sword-and-sandal drama starring Andy Whitfield, above, as the gladiator-hero, ends its bloody good first season with the ominously titled episode "Kill Them All." (Starz,10 p.m.)

SATURDAY

The doctor is in ... "Doctor Who," that is. Matt Smith, above, assumes the title role of the time traveler who dispenses his own brand of universal healthcare in this latest iteration of the storied British sci-fi series. (BBC America, 6 and 9 p.m.)
