Published July 13, 1999 4:00PM (EDT)


Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB) finally airs "Graduation Day, Part II," the season finale delayed by network fears of becoming a target of anti-Hollywood vitriol in the wake of the Littleton massacre. To recap: The mayor is preparing his "ascension" to a huge powerful demon, to take place at Sunnydale High's graduation ceremony. Buffy and the gang are preparing for an apocalyptic showdown, but Faith, working for the mayor, has poisoned Angel, in hopes of sidetracking Buffy. The only cure for Angel: The blood of a slayer. Now, get the popcorn ready and don't call me between 8 and 9 o'clock. Nova (check local times, PBS) presents "To the Moon," a two-hour look back at the Apollo moon landing of July 20, 1969. Investigative Reports (9 p.m. EDT/10 PDT, A&E) continues "Inside LAX," its behind -the-scenes look at life at Los Angeles International Airport. In this installment, we go on the job with airport paramedics and two plainclothes customs officers. On a rerun of Felicity (9 p.m., WB), Noel can't quit Hannah and an art student expresses interest in Felicity just when she needs it the most. P.O.V. (Check local times, PBS) presents "Corpus: A Home Movie for Selena," Lourdes Portillo's documentary about the effect of Selena's life and death on her fans, her family and Mexican-American culture. On a rerun of NYPD Blue (10 p.m., ABC), Diane softens up toward Danny when they're teamed on a convenience-store robbery investigation in which Kirkendall's son is the only witness.
