Musical journey

Tonight at 8, cable channel CMT’s “American Revolutions: The Highwaymen” travels the road with a quartet of country music legends — Willie Nelson, the late Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson and the late Johnny Cash.

The show will feature archival performance and interview footage shot in 1994 for an unproduced documentary.

Updated interview segments include chats with Mr. Nelson and Mr. Kristofferson, plus superstar producer Don Was, songwriter-producer Chips Moman and recording stars Jessi Colter and Shooter Jennings.

What lies beneath

“Desperate Housewives” fans will have to wait another week before finding out just what evil lurks in Betty Applewhite’s (Alfre Woodard) basement.

What we do know, according to a report in the Detroit Free Press, is that the chained and violent character (who appeared briefly in last Sunday’s episode) is called Caleb and will be played by Page Kennedy.

Mr. Kennedy, a Motor City native, was most recently seen as Big Trickey on Showtime’s “Barbershop” series. His Caleb will be revealed on “Housewives” Oct. 23, the newspaper says.

Meanwhile, on Sunday’s episode, “My Heart Belongs to Daddy” (airing at 9 p.m.), Gabrielle (Eva Longoria) causes a prison riot while visiting Carlos (Ricardo Chavira), Lynette (Felicity Huffman) is jealous that her son Parker’s (Zane Huett) imaginary friend has a bigger dressing room than she does, and Susan (Teri Hatcher) helps Mike (James Denton) search for the missing Zach (Cody Kasch).

Batter up

AMC catches baseball fever tomorrow with a double-header of big screen dugout hits.

First up, 1990’s “Field of Dreams” (8 p.m.) with Kevin Costner as an Iowa farmer who — at the urging of mysterious voices — destroys his failing crops to build a baseball field. Ray Liotta, James Earl Jones and the great Burt Lancaster co-star.

“The Natural” (1984) follows at 10:15 p.m. Robert Redford stars as Roy Hobbs, a talented, over-the-hill slugger who seems to appear out of thin air to turn a losing team around and redeem a diamond career cut short.

‘Studio’ expansion

We suspected that Bravo’s “Inside the Actors Studio,” was running out of iconic actors to fawn over when Jennifer Lopez dropped in for a visit with host James Lipton.

Sunday, the long-running show, now midway through its 11th season, strays even further from its roots by welcoming Sir Elton John for a chat.

The colorful pianist takes center stage for a two-hour “Studio” at 8 p.m. The following week, former Queen of Nice Rosie O’Donnell sits down for Mr. Lipton to discuss both her stand-up days and acting career.
