National Geographic offers a close-up of the Mafia, a grimmer view than Tony Soprano's world. PBS brings opera to those who aspire to sing, and Disney's new animated series features a fly. ABC's "Complete Savages" signs off for good. Jane Goodall takes a special look at communication on Animal Planet, and Kyra Sedgwick stars as a savvy detective on TNT's "The Closer."

Disney Channel's first Flash animation series features a teenage fly -- yes, a fly -- who lives in Stickyfeet, described as "an ordinary metropolis in the fly-world." Sky [Skye Sweetnam] provides the voice of [Maggie Pesky], whose dream is to become a rock star. Sweetnam performs the theme song, "Just the Way I Am."
