Lindsay Lohan talks to Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah’s Next Chapter Sunday, 9 p.m, OWN

This is the spot on Winfrey’s network that most resembles her old talk shows. Stars come by to pimp projects, Winfrey promotes her own efforts and those of her friends, and those in need of a reputation buff come to the apology/confession/rehabilitation corner for judgment and redemption. This week it’s Lindsay Lohan, fresh out of rehab and admitting she is her own worst enemy. Whether or not her time spent in this spotlight will serve to repair the damage she’s done to her image, let’s hope the time she spent away from it has helped repair the actual damage in her life.


Baby Sellers Saturday, 8 p.m., Lifetime

Because it is Lifetime, they’ve decided to expose “the dark international crime enterprise of infant trafficking” with a movie called
“Baby Sellers” starring Kirstie Alley. One minute she is the friendly face of a respected adoption agency. The next she is a “ruthless international kingpin, controlling an expansive syndicate spanning the world and manned by subordinates authorized to use any means necessary to procure children for her business.” And then she dances! (Just kidding on that last part.)
