This week's TV Movies


 

Neverland

SUNDAY

Yankee-doodle dandies Warren Beatty and Ben Stiller (neither one British) and Helena Bonham Carter (veddy British indeed) are among the film stars feted at the “2011 Britannia Awards,” presented by BAFTA Los Angeles. (TV Guide, 8:30 p.m.)

We do believe in fairies! Keira Knightley voices Tinker Bell, and Charlie Rowe (above, with Q’Orianka Kilcher) is the boy who would be Peter Pan, in “Neverland,” a new two-part twist on J.M. Barrie’s beloved children’s tale. (Syfy, 9 p.m.; concludes Mon., 9 p.m.)

MONDAY


Famous faces like Ed Helms, Mo’Nique and Alanis Morissette share personal stories of shame and humiliation in the new 10-part series “The Mortified Sessions.” It’s up to viewers to supply the sympathy… and/or schadenfreude. (Sundance, 8 and 8:30 p.m.)

TUESDAY


“Miracle on 34th Street” proved in court that Santa Claus is real, while “It’s a Wonderful Life” showed Jimmy Stewart that, well, it’s a wonderful life… just two of the classics featured on a new holiday edition of “A Night at the Movies.” (TCM, 5 and 8 p.m.)

WEDNESDAY


The new special “Pearl Harbor: 24 Hours After” offers a president’s-eye view of the immediate aftermath of the attack that led FDR to declare Dec. 7, 1941, “a date which will live in infamy” and precipitated America’s entry into WWII. (History, 8 p.m.)

THURSDAY


What do Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Rep. Anthony Weiner and golf’s Tiger Woods have in common? They’re among the alpha males indicted for their indiscretions in the special “Never Satisfied: Why Powerful Men Cheat.” (Biography, 7 and 11 p.m.)

FRIDAY

Where the “Rubber” meets the road is exactly where you don’t want to be when a discarded car tire named Robert achieves sentience and subsequently embarks on a freewheeling killing spree in this inventive 2010 indie thriller. (Showtime, 9:30 p.m.)

 SATURDAY


More awards: Do-gooders get their due at “The American Giving Awards,” a new ceremony celebrating charities, and “Spike TV’s Video Game Awards 2011” gives a thumbs-up to assorted thumb-straining amusements. (NBC, 8 p.m.; Spike, 8 p.m.)
