A look at some of this week's noteworthy television:
Color BarsDesperate Housewives (Sunday, 9:00 p.m., WABC 7) A homosexual male couple moves into Wisteria Lane and wackiness ensues.

Masterpiece Theatre: The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard (Sunday, 9:00 p.m., WNET 13) In this 6 part series, Jane Horrocks plays a British supermarket manager who is dissatisfied with the political hacks who are gunning to be Prime Minister and decides to mount her own campaign. BBC 1 aired it last year in the UK to lackluster ratings, which either means it was a poorly executed good idea or there was something better on.

Incredible Human Machine (Sunday, 9:00 p.m., National Geographic Channel) The story of day in the life of the human body is told with fancy camera work and guests like Stephen Tyler of Aerosmith in this update of a 1975 program of the same name.

Top Gear (Monday, 8:00 p.m., BBC America) This episode has the lads take a trip in America in cars they buy in Miami for $1000 and dodge angry murderous rednecks in Alabama on their way to New Orleans with all sorts of wackiness and social commentary ensuing.

Heroes (Monday, 9:00 p.m., WNBC 4) Kristen Bell, late of Veronica Mars, joins the cast in a multi episode story arc.

Frontline: Showdown With Iran (Tuesday, 9:00 p.m., WNET 13) A look at the United States hate-hate relationship with Iran and how it fits into the current middle eastern quagmire.

Mega Disasters (Tuesday, 9:00 p.m., History Channel) We love these shows that take a look at history and then graphically speculate future events. This time around it is earthquakes in New York. This show takes a look at two relatively big ones in 1737 and in 1884 and then uses computer animation to show the effects of a 5.5 earthquake on the city.

Phenomenon (Wednesday, 8:00 p.m., WNBC 4) In yet another attempt by NBC-Universal to save money with bad fakeality shows instead of programs with actors and writers, we get Criss Angel and Uri Geller having some sort of magician competition for five weeks.

2007 World Series (Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, 8:00 p.m., WNYW 5) Tim McCarver prattles on like an idiot for about three hours while two baseball teams almost no one in the Tri-State area cares about (we think it might be the Albuquerque Isotopes and Portland Beavers) play. Football play-by-play man Joe Buck rounds out the worst announcing pair anywhere.

C.S.I.: New York (Wednesday, 10:00 p.m., WCBS 2) This comically inaccurate show searches for a killer on a Second Life type website. Hmm. . . Didn’t Law & Order: SVU (the New York set cop show that saves the time, trouble and expense of dressing up various bits of Los Angeles as New York by filming in New York) do this a couple weeks ago?

Scrubs (Thursday, 9:31 p.m., WNBC 4) This medical comedy returns for its seventh season. We do hope it improves from last year, when it jumped the shark.

EXPOSÉ: America's Investigative Reports (Friday, 10:00 p.m., WNET 13) A look at at one local television station that found holes in airport security at some of the busiest airports in the country.

Las Vegas (Friday, 10:00 p.m., WNBC 4) It is a Magnum P.I. reunion of sorts with Roger Mosley and Larry Manetti guest starring along side Tom Selleck. Casting stunts like this tend to indicate a shark jump for a show, but it could be a bit of fun.

Transit Transit (Saturday, 3:30 p.m., WNYE 25) This month the MTA’s homemade show produced by MTA employees who volunteer for the extra duty, takes a look at the history of the A train which has been running for 75 years..
