Louie Anderson: Louie in St. Louie (Showtime cable, 9:30-10:30 p.m.): Louie Anderson's routines combine honesty with laughter.

Brides of Christ (A&E, 9-11 p.m.): From Australia comes a six-hour, three-part miniseries that centers around a group of nuns and girls in a Roman Catholic school during the 1960s. The series begins with the story of two young women who get the "call" to join a convent and don habits. It traces their journey and some of the trials they and their students encounter as they strive to understand and practice their faith. Later the series focuses on the mother superior, who struggles to incorporate the refor ms mandated by Vatican II. "Brides of Christ" is more a sweet, gentle look at the personal dramas of a group of women than a deep story. This thoughtful series stars Brenda Fricker, who won an Oscar for her performance in "My Left Foot." As the strict, by-the-books Sister Agnes, she adds a strong presence to the well-acted program.
