The world's best athletes get trophies and free booze at Monte Carlo's "Laureus Awards."

Topics: Scott Adams, Television,

Series

On a rerun of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB), Adam escapes from the Initiative’s headquarters and the soldier boys can do precious little about it. Dilbert (8:30 p.m., UPN) begins a two-parter where Dilbert is infected by a space virus. On a rerun of Angel (9 p.m., WB), our boy helps a woman whose doctor is stalking her in a most unusual manner. The new NBC sitcom M.Y.O.B. (9:30 p.m., NBC) — actually, it’s a sitcom that didn’t make the cut this past fall or spring — was executive produced by Don Roos, who did the Christina Ricci movie “The Opposite of Sex.” Katharine Towne stars as a Ricci-esque runaway teen who goes to live with her no-nonsense aunt (Lauren Graham), who might be her birth mother. Thurgood sees a vision of a black Jesus and gets religion on The PJs (9:30 p.m., Fox).

Specials



The world’s best athletes are honored in the first Laureus World Sports Award (8 p.m., TNT), which takes place in Monte Carlo (the site of last week’s supremely Eurotrashy World Music Awards telecast). Ashley Judd, Dylan McDermott, Jeff Bridges and Sylvester Stallone are among the celebs handing out the trophies.
