TONIGHT'S MIGHT-SEE: “Hawaii Five-0,”

A month after football's annual Pro

Caan) obsessing on the game, while the team probes the murder of a
Arian Foster, the Houston Texans
running back, has a guest role. Also in support: Pat Monahan, the

years in Hawaii.
TONIGHT'S MIGHT-SEE II: “The Princess
Bride” (1987), 7:30 p.m., VH1; 8 p.m., TV Guide.
We probably don't need 100 channels, if

and adds the Cartoon Network at 7 p.m. Saturday and 6 p.m. Sunday.
No, it's not a cartoon; it has a

Robin Wright and Cary Elwes, as the young lovers, are backed by Mandy
Patinkin, Billy Crystal, Peter Cook Wallace Shawn and even Andre the
Giant, plus Peter Falk, reading this clever tale to Fred Savage.
TONIGHT'S ALTERNATIVE: “In

Robbins did in 1958, fresh from the youthful passion of his “West
Other choices include:
– “Bones,” 8 p.m., Fox. We don't
expect the “Bones” stars, ages 44 and 36, to ponder end-of-life

bodies, one who was supposed to guide the other in the final stages
of cancer. Also, Daisy works her first case since breaking up with
