This week's TV Movies


“Black Girls Rock!” Need examples? Former child star Raven-Symoné, rapper Missy Elliott and actress Ruby Dee, who are just some of the African American women lauded for their artistic and cultural contributions in this new award special. (BET, 8 p.m.)

Brilliant! “The Britannia Awards: Honoring Excellence in Film and Television” is from the same folks who present the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards. Jeff Bridges, “Inception” director Christopher Nolan and the ubiquitous Betty White are among the honorees. (TV Guide, 8 p.m.)


If “The Tonight Show” were the U.S. presidency, then Conan O’Brien would be Benjamin Harrison to Jay Leno’s Grover Cleveland. The unsinkable Mr. O’Brien (below) gets back into the late-night talk-show game with the premiere of “Conan.” (TBS, 11 p.m.) 


It’s always good to see Michael J. Fox back on the small screen. You can’t help but root for the guy; he’s just so likable, even when he’s playing a lawyer, which he does when he guest stars on the Julianna Margulies legal drama “The Good Wife.” (CBS, 10 p.m.) 


Performers slated for “The 44th Annual CMA Awards” include Taylor Swift, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Sheryl Crow and Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow. Yup, you read that last one right. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood host. (ABC, 8 p.m.) 


You can take the soldier out of the battle, but sadly, you can’t always take the battle out of the soldier. Post-traumatic stress disorder — formerly known as shellshock, or combat fatigue — is examined in the new documentary “Wartorn: 1861-2010.” (HBO, 9 p.m.) 


The new documentary special “Industrial Light & Magic: Creating the Impossible” takes you behind the scenes at the special-effects shop founded by “Star Wars” creator George Lucas. Let’s hope they kept Jar-Jar Binks locked in a closet when they shot this. (Encore, 9 p.m.) 


The untamed mane … the maniacal expression … the scream! The late, great stand-up star dubbed the “Rock and Roll Comedian” (below) is remembered by friends and fans in the special “Back From Hell: A Tribute to Sam Kinison.” (Comedy Central, 10 p.m.)
