STEPHEN KING'S 'STORM OF THE CENTURY'
Encore, 8:00 p.m. ET
Part 1 of 3. This 1999 miniseries, starring Tim Daly, is not good, by any means. But this week’s telecast of this multi-part thriller, for which Stephen King wrote the screenplay, gets plenty of points for propitious timing. In these days of “Frankenstorm,” this miniseries tells the story of a ferocious winter storm that slams into the northeastern United States and hits a small village off the mainland – bringing a mysterious man with his own spooky agenda. And no, he’s not a reporter from the Weather Channel. Like "Frankenstorm," Storm of the Century is scheduled to continue through Wednesday.
