Best Bets: 'Clinton' comes to TV in time for Presidents' Day

Here's our look at the week ahead in entertainment.

TV
President Bill Clinton's name will forever be tied to that of Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern whose affair with the married president captured headlines worldwide in 1998. But not all of the four hours of "Clinton"coming up on PBS's "American Experience" focus on the scandal. Clinton's turbulent Arkansas childhood, his troubled marriage to now Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and the many complexities of his presidency are all covered. (Feb. 19 and 20, 9 p.m., PBS.)

Hollywood's biggest night comes to TV on Feb. 26 as the Academy Awards sweep on to your screen. Billy Crystal is hosting, though the comic was second choice -- comedian Eddie Murphy stepped down after his friend, Brett Ratner, who was producing the show, resigned after using a gay slur. If you're running an office pool, you'd do well to put money on "The Artist," "Hugo, and "The Descendants," all of which are expected to have a golden night. (Feb. 26, 7 p.m., ABC.)

Movies
The Navy SEALs have perhaps never been more in the spotlight, thanks to the killing of Osama bin Laden and the recent rescue of two people held hostage by Somali pirates. The SEALs are the topic of "Act of Valor,"a new movie which mixes actors and actual SEALs, and shows the group fighting terrorists and rescuing a kidnapped CIA officer. (Opens Feb. 24.)

DVD
Antonio Banderas gives a Latin lover-twist to the fairy-tale cat "Puss in Boots." The furry feline once played second fiddle to green ogre Shrek, but now he has his own movie. Puss re-teams with childhood pal Humpty Dumpty and falls for pretty Kitty Soft Paws as they pursue the magical beans and golden eggs of fairy-tale legend. (On DVD Feb. 24.)

There's no need to fear! "Underdog" is here! The classic cartoon featuring the superhero dog and heroine Sweet Polly Purebred is now out on DVD in a nine-disc DVD set. It's the first time all three seasons of the cult favorite are together in a box set. (On DVD Feb. 21.)
