Da Bears

Tatum O'Neal might not be first on the invite list for "Inside the Actors Studio," but she's hot stuff in the eyes of America's best sportscaster. For "Costas at the Movies" (7 p.m. MLB Network), Bob Costas grills her about the making of that American classic "The Bad News Bears."

Murder, they wrote

Be warned: "The Following" (8 p.m. KMSP, Ch. 9), starring Kevin Bacon as a boozy ex-FBI agent and James Purefoy as a brainy serial killer, might be the most violent drama in network TV history. That doesn't mean it isn't compelling. Both stars are terrific, and the action is sure to get the heart pumping. But with so many violent acts across the country these past few months, some viewers might find the bloody action deeply disturbing. In other words, this ain't "Footloose."

Two snaps up

Plans for a revamped version of "In Living Color" have been scrapped, but that doesn't mean the talented gang is opposed to reliving the past. The show's famous alumni, which includes Jim Carrey, left, and Jamie Foxx, take a trip down memory lane during "Where Are They Now" (11 p.m. TV Guide).
