10. Hatfields & McCoys, History Channel, Saturday, June 2, 6 p.m. ET

The History Channel blasted into the miniseries fray on Memorial Day with a three-part, six-hour depiction of the notorious family feud and it got stunning ratings: 17 million viewers the first night, more than any network show that week. Kevin Costner produces and stars as "Devil Anse" Hatfield. Bill Paxton is nemesis Rand'l McCoy. Directed by Costner's old Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves mate Kevin Reynolds, the series sports superb acting from a cast that also boasts Tom Berenger and Powers Boothe. But be warned — it's extremely bloody and not for everyone. Mare Winningham (Sally McCoy) looks at it this way: "I thought it was devastating in a way you would want violence to be ... an incredibly powerful anti-violence statement that no good comes of this." The entire six hours re-airs June 2, or watch online.
