A look at some noteworthy television this week:
Color BarsThe War: A Ken Burns Film (Sunday - Tuesday, 8:00 p. m., WNET 13; Sunday - Tuesday, 10:00 p. m., WLIW 21) The Ken Burns World War II documentary wraps up this week.

Top Gear (Monday 8:00 p.m. & 9:00 p.m., BBC America) We recently stumbled onto the insanely brilliant BBC 2 show which is in theory about cars, but is really about three crazy Brits going nuts and having a great deal of fun. We are quite glad it has made it over the pond since an average episode is about a billion times funnier than all of ABC sitcoms from the past five years thanks to one man - Jeremy Clarkson.

Celebrity Exposé (Monday, 8:00 p.m., WWOR 9) This new celeb based series from the Access Hollywood team starts off with host Tony Potts taking a look at Long Islander Lindsay Lohan. Next week it is the train wreck known as Britney Spears. As Homer Simpson might say, “Mmm… Pop Tarts.”

Everybody Hates Chris (Monday, 8:00 p.m., WPIX 11) Chris Rock guest stars on this semi-kinda-sorta autobiographical sitcom. He is not playing a future version of himself but instead a school guidance counselor.

Aliens in America (Monday, 8:30 p.m., WPIX 11) It is a typical fish out of water teen sitcom. This time the fish is a Pakistani exchange student who a Wisconsin mother hoped would get her nerdy son out of his shell, but instead wackiness ensues.

Control Room Presents (Monday, 9:00 p.m., WWOR 9) This new series from MyNetworkTV will feature concert performances and behind the scenes looks at some top musical talent. The first episode has Maroon 5 playing Montréal’s Cabaret Club.

Journeyman (Monday, 10:00 p.m., WNBC 4) If you haven’t seen this new show, which judging from last week’s pilot is one of the best of the crop of new series, you should give this show a chance. It is more than just Quantum Leap: The Next Generation.

Cavemen (Tuesday, 8:00 p.m., WABC 7) We only hope that this show which is rumored to have gone through at least one retooling dies a quick death. The 30 second Geico cavemen adverts are barely tolerable so we don’t think we could take 22 minutes of it.

Carpoolers (Tuesday, 8:30 p.m., WABC 7) This new show is about carpooling commuters who basically treat their commute as a therapy session with wackiness ensuing. We think that getting stuck in traffic for 22 minutes with Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson would probably be more entertaining.

Pushing Daisies (Wednesday, 8:00 p.m., WABC 7) This new show is about a man who can bring people back to life by touching them, but with one catch – if he touches them again they are dead forever. We swear we have seen something like this before, but can’t recall.

Manhattan (Wednesday, 8:00 p.m., Turner Classic Movies) The classic black and white 1979 Woody Allen film that features the music of George Gershwin. If you for some reason have never seen this movie you should watch.

The Sarah Silverman Program (Wednesday, 10:00 p.m., Comedy Central) Given the uneven nature of last season, we can only hope that this season is better.

30 Rock (Thursday, 8:30 p.m., WNBC 4) The best new comedy of last season is back and they have Jerry Seinfeld guest starring as Jerry Seinfeld since there is a plan a foot to add old Seinfeld footage to the network’s shows. Well the NBC that is in the show not the NBC that airs the show, although the idea might just help a few.

Law & Order: Criminal Intent (Thursday, 10:00 p.m., USA) This part of the Law & Order franchise got sent down to the minors and is now on basic cable this season. The only question is when will it be called up.

New York Voices (Friday, 10:30 p.m., WNET 13) Brooklyn filmmaker and author Paul Auster is interviewed about his work and Park Slope. The show also takes a look at Mayor Bloomberg’s scheme to create 300 new parks.
