TV Weekend

"Locusts" (9 p.m., WWJ-TV, Channel 62, CBS). Run for your lives! It's the worst TV movie of the year! Double whammy woe is Xena. Lucy Lawless ("Xena: Warrior Princess") may be the first U.S. Department of Agriculture employee to play hero. She saves the world from an insect apocalypse. Actually, the real Hollywood apocalypse is this lousy, humorless, incredibly cheesy disaster movie about a plague of genetically re-engineered killer locusts attacking the United States. And Dr. Maddy Rierdon's (Lawless) bright idea? A gargantuan electronic power grid bug zapper. I kid you not. Pass the rubber brick, I'm bugged.
