SUNDAY

When contestants on the British edition of “Big Brother” are besieged by zombies, is it OK to root for the zombies? IFC gets into the Halloween spirit with a marathon of all five episodes of the imported horror-comedy mash-up “Dead Set.” (IFC, 7:30 p.m.)

Speaking of spooky, “The Phantom of the Opera” is here — the classic 1925 silent, that is, not the more recent film version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. “Man of a Thousand Faces” Lon Chaney (above right, with Mary Philbin) stars. (10:30 p.m. TCM)

MONDAY

“Saturday Night Live” has always been something of a boys' club, but now … it's ladies night! Tina Fey, Laraine Newman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Kristen Wiig are just some of “The Women of SNL” featured in this new special mixing classic clips and new sketches. You've come a long way, baby! (NBC, 9 p.m.)

TUESDAY

Ellen DeGeneres — stand-up comic, sitcom star, “American Idol” judge for about 10 minutes, and heiress-apparent to Oprah's daytime talk-show crown — is profiled on a new episode of “Biography.” (Bio, 7 and 11 p.m.)

WEDNESDAY

Send in the clowns … and the jugglers, trapeze artists, tightrope walkers and animal acts. The six-part series “Circus” takes you under the big top and behind the scenes to reveal the personal and professional costs of keeping such a show on the road. (KCET, 9:30 p.m.)

THURSDAY

A sex scandal? In Washington, D.C., you say? Who'd have thunk it? Our high-kicking heroine (Maggie Q) finds herself in the middle of same on a new episode of the action drama “Nikita.” (The CW, 8 p.m.)

FRIDAY

“So a guy walks into a bar, and …” “You stink!” “Hey, pal, I'm working up here.” Yes, stand-up comics will find themselves heckled by one of their own — funnyman Doug Benson — in the new series “Benson Interruption.” (Comedy Central, midnight)

SATURDAY

Two movies that are too big for most TVs to handle come to the small screen: James Cameron's effects-laden 2009 sci-fi blockbuster “Avatar” and Terry Gilliam's little-seen 2009 fantasy-fable “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” featuring the late Heath Ledger. (HBO, 8 p.m.; Starz, 9 p.m.)
