Series

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB) is a rerun, of course; it's the one where Faith tries to turn Angel against Buffy. On a rerun of Felicity (9 p.m., WB), the resourceful Miss Porter sets about preparing for the loss of her virginity. Def Leppard is in the spotlight on a rerun of Behind the Music (9 p.m., VH1), and if they were going to put these on every night, don't you think they should have made some new ones? Sports Night (9:30 p.m., ABC) reruns the episode where the ghost of an ancient actor is blamed for a mishap-filled day at the office. Bobby's condition deteriorates on a rerun of NYPD Blue (10 p.m., ABC) that you really should watch if you haven't seen it. The dream sequences with the pigeons may seem weird, but they mean something. P.O.V. (Check local times, PBS) presents "Golden Threads," a documentary about the annual reunion of a networking group for older gays and lesbians.
