Today on TV

Manhunter (6 and 8:30 p.m., Bravo): This 1986 movie is the first to feature Hannibal Lecter, albeit in the form of Brian Cox and not Anthony Hopkins. Although this is airing under Bravo's banner of "Five-Star Cinema," this wasn't exactly a great movie. William Petersen, who stars as an FBI agent, went on to better things as the star of "CSI." (Repeat)

JAG (7 p.m., Ch. 2): Cast members step into different roles as they flash back to a World War II-era mystery/romance. (Repeat)
