CBS (Wednesday, Oct 17, 9 p.m. ET)
The cast is topflight: Charlton Heston, John (The Deer Hunter) Savage, Maud (Octopussy) Adams. The scenery is gorgeous: filmed on location in Kenya. But what little plot there is moves as slowly as a sleepy rhino: Savage is hired to shoot the people who shoot wild animals and on one of his hunts for humans he brings along his hated father, Heston, a former game hunter turned photo-safari leader who’s in love with son Savage’s former lover, Adams. Wild Kingdom was better.
