This week's TV Movies



PRIME CHOICES

SUNDAY

When Mom heads back into the workforce, three suburban kids must assume childcare responsibilities for the family’s adorable new arrival in the new sitcom “Good Luck Charlie.” All together now: awww. (Disney, 8:30 p.m.)

MONDAY

Don’t you just love Scandinavian black metal? Sure you do. But if you don’t, you can still learn a little something about this hard-rock subgenre — and its often-violent subculture — in the 2008 music doc “Until the Light Takes Us.” (Sundance, 8 p.m.)

TUESDAY

The distance between Paris and London gets that much shorter when a certain celebutante seeks a new BFF — or, rather, “BBF” — from among a batch of U.K. hopefuls in the new reality competition “Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend.” (TV Guide, 10 and 11 p.m.)

WEDNESDAY

Born a prince in India 2 1/2 millenniums ago, moved by the inevitability of human suffering to a life of contemplation and spiritual teaching, “The Buddha” is revered across Asia and around the world. Richard Gere narrates this new profile. (KCET, 8 p.m.)

THURSDAY

Suppose you live in a big mansion, with a fancy kitchen, complete with all the amenities and stocked with the finest foods money can buy. So, who cooks for you? “Private Chefs of Beverly Hills,” that’s who. See them in action in this new docu-series. (Food, 10 p.m.)

FRIDAY

He’s glam, his guyliner is perfect, and his voice is glorious. He’s Season 8 “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert and he performs stripped-down versions of fan favorites in an intimate setting on a new edition of “Unplugged.” (VH1, 11 p.m.)

SATURDAY

The fault line between print- and Web-based journalism is explored when a shoe-leather reporter (Russell Crowe) and a tech-savvy blogger (Rachel McAdams) team to expose D.C. skulduggery in the 2009 thriller “State of Play.” (Cinemax, 10 p.m.)

TRIPPY

An intrepid youngster and his canine companion explore a madcap, mystical landscape in the new series "Adventure Time With Finn & Jake." It looks like something you'd see on Adult Swim, but, you know, for kids. (Cartoon Network, 8 p.m. Mon.)

WINDING DOWN

"Stop the world, I want to get off" is an old refrain, but what if it actually happened? The consequences for life as we know it are considered in the new special "Aftermath: When the Earth Stops Spinning." (National Geographic, 6 and 9 p.m. Mon.)

CALCIFIED

One hundred "bones" is 100 bucks, but 100 "Bones" is the number of episodes that the forensics drama hits this week. Congratulations to series stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel and all of the cast and crew. (Fox, 8 p.m. Thu.)
