Sunday

When Tiger Woods got in marital trouble, he issued a public apology. What does Charlie Sheen do? Appear on "Family Guy" (8 p.m., KMSP, Ch. 9). Fellow hothead James Woods also contributes a guest voice on this episode, in which Peter becomes a TV mogul.

Monday

Holly Hunter doesn't have much more time to get her act together. The final nine episodes of "Saving Grace" (9 p.m., TNT) kick off with her Det. Grace Hanadarko improbably surviving a mighty fall and dealing with the fact that the world now knows she has a guardian angel. "Grace" is far from great television, but it's been a treat watching a talent like Hunter sink her teeth into a rich TV character. Her performance will be missed.

Tuesday

It's no secret that Kathryn Erbe, Vincent D'Onofrio and Eric Bogosian are all leaving "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (9 p.m., USA), so it's not giving away too much to tell you that, by the end of season nine's first two episodes, one character is killed, another is offered a promotion and the third is fired. If you can figure out this mystery, maybe you can take over as one of the detectives.

Wednesday

Just when you thought there were no new ways to capitalize on the vampire craze, here comes a new edition of "America's Next Top Supermodel" (7 p.m., WUCW, Ch. 23) in which the eternally beautiful Tyra Banks forces the contestants to dress as bloodsuckers and sink into a bloody bathtub. That's a little too creepy for our taste. We're much more interested in what happens when the women return to their pad and two of them get their fangs out.

Thursday

Other adventure series can flash forward. "Fringe" (8 p.m., KMSP, Ch. 9), which has just been renewed for a third season, is content with ol'-fashioned flashbacks. In this case, the series travels back to 1985, where we learn about a special connection between Peter (Joshua Jackson) and Olivia (Olivia Torv). Hint: It's not that they once made out on the banks of Dawson's Creek.
