Bookmark and Share

Last Man Standing (8pm, ABC) - Tim Allen deserves better than the grouchy male chauvinist role he's playing in this new series. Allen is a macho sporting-goods marketer living with (and complaining about) his wife (Nancy Travis), three teenaged daughters, and infant grandson. The entire series is built around continuous rants that men aren't as manly as they used to be. More here.

Frontline: The Anthrax Files (9pm, UNC-TV) - The season premiere of "Frontline" looks at the 2001 anthrax attacks on the U.S. Senate offices, network news divisions, and a tabloid newspaper. In 2008, the FBI pinned responsibility on Army scientist Bruce Ivins after Ivins committed suicide. This report, however, questions the FBI's investigative methods and whether Ivins really did it. The report is based on a joint investigation with ProPublica and McClatchy.

Women, War, and Peace: I Came to Testify (10pm, UNC-TV) - This five-hour series about the evolving roles of women in war and peace opens with this story of 16 women who testified in international court about their experiences during the Bosnian war of the 1990s, when they imprisoned and raped by Serb-led forces in the town of Foca. As a result of their courage, new international laws about sexual violence in war have been enacted. Narrated by Matt Damon.
