Series

On this week's rerun of The Sopranos (9 p.m., HBO), Christopher and Brendan feel the wrath of Uncle Junior (or is it the wrath of Livia?) over the truck hijacking, and Tony and Silvio get drawn into a family dispute involving a very tough Hasidic Jew. Behind the Music (9 p.m., VH1) gets happy with a David Cassidy rerun.

Specials

The 1993 western Geronimo: An American Legend (8 p.m., Fox) has its TV premiere, mainly because one of its stars, Matt Damon, has become a wee bit popular. Wes Studi has the title role; Gene Hackman and Robert Duvall co-star. The new cable movie Judgment Day: The Ellie Nesler Story (9 p.m., USA) stars Christine Lahti in the true story of a Northern California woman who murdered her son's molester, then stood trial for murder herself amid a media blitz of "heroine or vigilante?" stories.
