MONDAY'S BEST BETS

8 PM on Channel 49

7th Heaven

Simon (David Gallagher) is booted from his dorm for housing a female friend (guest star Lauren Storm) in the new episode "Why Not Me?" Eric (Stephen Collins) then learns the young woman is one of several siblings in the care of social workers, and he asks members of his congregation to help by volunteering to become foster parents. (TVG) 1985888
8 PM on TCM

Sunrise at Campobello

Remembered principally as a character actor, Ralph Bellamy did fine leading-man work as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in this 1960 screen version of writer Dore Schary's stage hit. The drama primarily focuses on FDR's struggle against polio and how he refused to let the disease negate his political aspirations. Greer Garson is equally solid as Eleanor Roosevelt. Hume Cronyn and Jean Hagen co-star. 3513739
8 PM on DISNEY

My Date With the President's Daughter

As if first dates aren't nerve-wracking enough, imagine one with the first daughter of the United States. Shy high-school junior Duncan Fletcher (Will Friedle), motivated by a bet, asks Hallie (Elisabeth Harnois) to his spring dance, only to discover her father is the president. The evening gets really exciting when Hallie convinces Duncan that the only way they will have a good time is to lose the Secret Service agents tailing them. (TVG) 938197
9 PM on Channel 2

Las Vegas

Danny and Mike (Josh Duhamel, James Lesure) are distracted from their youth football team's upcoming championship game by the disppearance of one player's father, an amateur inventor, in the new episode "Montecito Lancers." Sam (Vanessa Marcil) becomes enmeshed in an "All About Eve"-like scenario when she mentors a casino owner's (guest star James McDaniel, "NYPD Blue") girlfriend. (TV14) HDTV6710
9 PM on LIFETIME

Identity Theft: The Michelle Brown Story

Kimberly Williams-Paisley has focused on comedy lately by co-starring in "According to Jim," but she turns back to drama in this new movie, the true story of Michelle, a woman whose identity was assumed by a total stranger (played by Annabella Sciorra). The hijacking even extended to cosmetic surgery intended to make the fake Michelle look like the real one, who eventually testified at a related Senate hearing. 109062

Saturday Night Live
Presidential Bash 2004: The Great Debates

Just as the election of a chief executive is an every-four-years tradition, so is the special that compiles "SNL" lampooning of political candidates past and present. Among potentially featured veterans of the show: Dana Carvey as George H.W. Bush and Ross Perot, Phil Hartman as Bill Clinton, and Dan Aykroyd as Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter. (TV14) 6197
10:15 PM on HBO

Le Divorce

Usually specialists in period pieces like "A Passage to India" and "The Remains of the Day," filmmaking partners Ismail Merchant and James Ivory go contemporary with this 2003 Americans-in-Paris comedy-drama. Overseas to visit her pregnant sister (Naomi Watts), a woman (Kate Hudson) gets involved with a relative (Thierry Lhermitte) of her sibling's wayward husband. Leslie Caron and Matthew Modine also star. HDTV7124623
