Tube Notes

By Mike Hughes
Gannett News Service


"American Idol," 7 p.m., Fox; also, "Nashville Star," 10 p.m., USA Network. Last week "Idol" fans were reminded that the country music round can kill even a great singer. The mood should change tonight with the music of Queen. Meanwhile, the six "Nashville Star" finalists have an annual original-song night. Wynonna Judd, one of the hosts, performs.


"10 Days That Unexpectedly Changed America," 6 and 7 p.m., History Channel. This superb documentary series' first hour — on Elvis Presley's "Ed Sullivan Show" debut —disappoints but is followed by a well-crafted hour on the gold rush.

"It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown" (1974), 7 p.m., ABC. See Snoopy hand out Easter eggs.

"The Ten Commandments" conclusion, 8 p.m., ABC. Moses (Dougray Scott) leads the spectacular escape from Egypt, but the story then slogs through the slow desert years.
