Spending Easter Eve with "The Ten Commandments" is still a worthwhile tradition, if only to marvel at how Cecil B. DeMille pulled off such epic scenes in 1956. But be warned: With commercial breaks, ABC's presentation has a running time of nearly five hours. Plus, it's hard to watch cast members Edward G. Robinson and Yul Brynner without giggling ever since Billy Crystal spoofed their performances in a 1987 comedy special.

This Olaf is no saint
Neil Patrick Harris has dabbled in a variety of roles since retiring his suits in "How I Met Your Mother," but none has resonated as much as his eccentric villain Count Olaf in "A Series of Unfortunate Events." Nathan Fillion joins the mischief in this new batch of episodes.

Back in the box
In one of the more riveting hours of "Homicide: Life on the Street," Andre Braugher and Kyle Secor spent an entire agonizing episode interrogating a suspect. There's more than a nod to that classic TV moment in a new installment of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." This time, Braugher's character enters the box with partner Andy Samberg and a murder suspect played by "This Is Us" star Sterling K. Brown. The results are more hilarious than harrowing.
