Series

Biography (8 p.m. EDT/9 PDT, A&E) reruns a profile of O.J. Simpson, for those yearning to relive the summer of 1994. Friends (8 p.m., NBC) reruns the very funny episode in which the gang remembers Thanksgivings past. On a rerun of ER (10 p.m., NBC), Greene treats a gay teen who was brutally beaten and left for dead, and Carter moves in with Weaver. 48 Hours (10 p.m., CBS) reports on teen violence. Survivors of the Littleton massacre are interviewed. The new sitcom The Chimp Channel (10:05 p.m. EDT/7:05 p.m. PDT, TBS) premieres. Monkeys dressed as people run a TV network (what else is new?) airing shows called "Treewatch," "NYPD Zoo" and "Ally McSqueal." Unfortunately, those titles are the funniest thing about the show. Truly, a missed opportunity.
