TV Watch List: Monday, Oct. 10
MOVIE. A-listers (Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore) go behind the camera alongside some of Hollywood’s top directors (Penelope Spheeris, Patty Jenkins) for this anthology of five short, intertwined films examining women’s struggles and triumphs against breast cancer.
Premiere, 9 p.m., Lifetime
COMEDY. A stressed out exec (Laura Dern) has a very public, rage-fueled breakdown that forces her to reexamine her life.

TALK. We’re expecting more koosh ball-throwing comedian than controversy-stoking activist when Rosie O’Donnell returns to the talk show scene tonight.
Series premiere, 7 p.m., OWN
‘Bored to Death’
COMEDY. We know one guy who’s not bored — Ted Danson, who continues his role as charming editor George to Jason Schwartzman’s zany, neurotic novelist/private investigator Jonathan, while simultaneously appearing as the new boss over on “CSI.”
