Cable

"Mr. Stitch" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., Sci-Fi) -- A modern-day Frankenstein's monster (he's even read Mary Shelley's book) comes to life in the whitest room you've ever seen, under the watchful gaze of a floating eyeball and a supercilious doctor played by Rutger Hauer. But the good doctor's creation turns out to have a mind of his own, a conscience and good taste in women, as he casts his lot not with his creator, but a plucky psychiatrist played by Nia Peeples.

"Gotti" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., HBO) -- Armand Assante is the Dapper Don who seems to have loved the spotlight too much for his own good.

"Into the Night" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., TNT) -- Jeff Goldblum becomes bored with his wife, so he drives about aimlessly until some excitement finds him. He ends up being shot at by Arab thugs, leered at by David Bowie and forced to spend the entire night ferrying Michelle Pfeiffer all over town. This 1985 film is not as funny as it thinks it is, but still entertaining. Keep any eye open for cameos from all sorts of famous directors.
