Tonight's TV picks: 'The Roosevelts' delve deep into power trio

"The Roosevelts: An Intimate History" : The political dynasty that produced two substantial presidents and one extraordinary first lady gets the Ken Burns treatment, and you know what that means: lots of old-time photographs, Meryl Streep voice-overs, and enough George Will to last a lifetime. It's all lathered over an illuminating 14-hour, seven-part film that not only explores the political imprint of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor, but gets up close and personal with its subjects in an attempt to examine what made them tick.
