ABC counters with James Woods and JoBeth Williams in "My Name Is Bill W.," a new "Hallmark Hall of Fame" movie that chronicles the birth of Alcoholics Anonymous, (7)(3)(10)(42).

And not to be outswept, CBS (2)(8) launches the first installment of "Guts and Glory: The Rise and Fall of Oliver North." David Keith stars in the miniseries, which concludes Tuesday.
