Cosby (8 p.m., CBS) reruns a Valentine's Day episode that features an animated segment produced by the "Dr. Katz" team. The crew prepares for indictments on a frantic rerun of The Sopranos (9 p.m., HBO). On a rerun of Law & Order (10 p.m., NBC), a couple of strip-club owners (Joe Piscopo, Mark Linn-Baker) may have to take a fall for a mob boss.
