Salon's TV picks for Tuesday, April 27, 1999

Published April 27, 1999 4:00PM (EDT)


Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB) was supposed to have a new episode tonight, but it was pulled in the wake of the Colorado high school massacre. The story line had Buffy developing the ability to hear the thoughts of others, including those of a teen planning a deadly assault. Another episode will air in its place. On King of the Hill (8 p.m., Fox), Peggy tutors a death row inmate and Hank doesn't like it one bit. Fry finds that his bank account has accrued a thousand years' worth of interest on Futurama (8:30 p.m., Fox). NewsRadio (8:30 p.m., NBC) airs what may be its next-to-last episode ever; Jimmy announces his retirement. On Felicity (9 p.m., WB), Julie receives a surprise from her birth mother, Meghan dons a new look for her parents' visit and Felicity learns that Noel may be leaving the dorm. Dan and Casey do their best to make sure word of Gordon's affair gets back to Dana on Sports Night (9:30 p.m., ABC). A recurring character turns up dead and a receptionist from the past returns on NYPD Blue (10 p.m., ABC).

In the new TV movie The Patty Duke Show: Still Rockin' in Brooklyn Heights (9 p.m., CBS), the cast of the classic sitcom about identical cousins reunites for no apparent purpose other than to make everybody over the age of 40 feel really, really old.
