Las Vegas

NFL Football

Forget the New England Patriots. The best team in football just might be on display tonight at Texas Stadium. (And it's not the home team, who might be as bad this season as they were surprising a year ago.) We're talking about QB Donovan McNabb and the Philadelphia Eagles, whose trade for receiver Terrell Owens qualifies as the shrewdist offseason pickup thus far. Owens often demands a double-team, leaving free space for others to roam. HDTV123776

Monster Garage

In "Honey Bee Drift Car," the crew refits an unassuming little 1975 Datsun with a 280-horsepower engine from its bigger, badder cousin: a Nissan 350Z. The object is to outfit the car for drifting competition, a form of racing where the emphasis is more on style -- specifically, graceful slides through the corners -- than speed. (TVPG) 343399

Deep Sea Detectives

The new episode "Cruiser Under Siege" revisits the sinking of USS San Diego in 1918. The Navy's official position is that mines planted by a German U-boat sank the cruiser, but documents surfaced in 1999 hinting that it might have been an inside job. Divers visit the wreck, located 110 feet underwater off New York's Long Island, in search of the truth. (TVPG) 3293554

Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer

Documentarian Nick Broomfield revisits the woman whose story he first told in 1992's "Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer." The film contains the last interview ever given by Wuornos, a former truck-stop prostitute who was convicted of one murder, pleaded guilty to five more and confessed to a seventh. Seen through Broomfield's lens, Wuornos is no "monster," but a sad woman who made poor choices simply because she had so few. 3531660

Investigating History

Quick, name a Civil War battle. Chances are you said, "Gettysburg" or "Antietam," not "Mine Creek." But that North-South encounter in Kansas on Oct. 25, 1864, deserves more recognition than it has received in the history books. For one thing, the Union came with 2,800 men, the Confederacy with 7,000 -- and the Yanks won. In the premiere of "The Lost Battle of the Civil War," host Bill Kurtis explains how they did it.
