A look at some noteworthy television this week:
Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee (Sunday, 9:00 p.m., HBO) A television adaptation of the 1970 book about America's 19th Century ethnic cleansing of Native Americans. We think that this deserves a miniseries instead of a 135 minute movie to bring the story justice.
The Blair Decade (Sunday, 9:00, WLIW 21) A look back on the career of Tony Blair, his rise to power and the bad decisions that led him to step down as prime minister of the UK.
Star Wars Tech (Monday, 8:00 p.m., The History Channel) A look at the fictional technology from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
Star Wars: The Legacy Revealed (Monday, 9:00 p.m., The History Channel) An in depth two hour look at the 1977 film and its influence on our culture.
Miss Universe 2007 (Monday, 9:00 p.m. WNBC 4) Another one of Donald Trump's beauty pageants which obviously reflects the Donald's enlightened view of women.
Ex-Wives Club (Monday, 9:00 p.m., WABC 7) Take F list celebs Angie Everhart, Shar Jackson and Marla Maples add non-famous women who have gone through nasty divorces, add a "life coach" and you have yet another cheap hour of fakeality television.
Bill Moyers Journal: D-Day Revisited (Monday, 10:00 p.m., WNET 13) Bill Moyers talks with World War Two veterans about their experiences liberating France.
The Simple Life Goes to Camp (Monday, 10:00 p.m. E!) Paris and Nicole are back yet again for another unneeded fakeality outing on the network that is the dregs of basic cable - E!. If anyone cares, this time around they are going to be going around to various summer camps.
Veronica Mars (Tuesday, 9:00 p.m., WPIX 11) This great show may have been stupidly canceled by the CW, but they are repeating the first episode of the past season Tuesday. If you haven't seen the show you should watch.
The Universe (Tuesday, 9:00 p.m., The History Channel) The start of what is undoubtedly an earth biased series on our universe.
The Next Best Thing: Who Is the Greatest Celebrity Impersonator? (Wednesday, 8:00 p.m., WABC 7) This show where people pretend to be someone famous just proves that there are too many fakealtiy "talent" searches on television. We hope this makes the fact that the genre has already jumped the shark crystal clear.
Hidden Palms (Wednesday, 8:00 p.m., WPIX 11) This looks like The O.C., but in Palm Springs instead of Orange County and on a different network.
Pirate Master (Thursday, 8:00 p.m., WCBS 2) Yet another shark jumping fakeality show. We guess they pitched this one as Survivor meets Piratesof the Caribbean. More shark jumping, Arg!
2007 Scripps National Spelling Bee (Thursday, 8:00 p.m., WABC 7) Kids spelling words on television, from the network that brought you televised bingo.
TV's Funniest Moments (Friday, 8:00 p.m., WNYW 5) Fox brings us yet another one of these funny TV moments shows, but this time under the auspices of the Museum of Television and Radio, so it might not suck and may actually be funny.
