Specials

The miniseries Atomic Train (9 p.m., NBC) chugs to its conclusion. And, by the way, claims NBC, the train isn't hauling "nuclear" waste, it's hauling "hazardous" waste -- just in case anti-nuclear activists were planning to use the movie to make a point. The American Experience (check local times, PBS) begins a new two-part profile of Gen. Douglas MacArthur.
