Series

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB) reruns the season opener, in which Buffy is having trouble adjusting to college life. The talking toy Dilbert designs for a fast-food restaurant turns evil on Dilbert (8:30 p.m., UPN). On Party of Five (9 p.m., Fox), the Salingers make sacrifices in order to cover Griffin’s hospital costs. Hey, he used to be family. Angel (9 p.m., WB) reruns the one where the man in (designer) black uncovers a demonic parasite that burrows into the bodies of lonely singles. Lily can’t turn her back on the vulnerable Jake on Once and Again (10 p.m., ABC).

Specials

The animated classic Frosty the Snowman (8 p.m., CBS), narrated by Jimmy Durante, has its 30th anniversary airing. It’s followed by Frosty Returns (8:30 p.m., CBS), in which John Goodman has the voice of the roly-poly man of snow, who is threatened by an evil inventor’s snow-removal spray. And after he melts, they transplant his brain into the body of a young, muscular ice stud. (That’s a joke for “Now and Again” fans.) The week-long countdown of the 100 Greatest Videos Ever Made (8 p.m., MTV) marches on, as does the week-long I Love Lucy Marathon (9 p.m., Nickelodeon). America Undercover (10 p.m., HBO) profiles “Women Who Love Killers.”
