Series

Norm has a drunken fling with the office blabbermouth on a rerun of Norm (8:30 p.m., ABC). The Sopranos (9 p.m., HBO) repeats the season finale, and it's a knockout in which Tony realizes who his true enemy is. Only four months until next season's opener! Oz (10 p.m., HBO) wraps up its season with a Christmas episode filled with goodwill and cheer. Yeah, right. American Justice (10 p.m. EDT/11 PDT, A&E) looks at the Jonesboro schoolyard ambush of 1998, in which two Arkansas middle school boys went to school one day in camouflage fatigues and shot five people to death.

In Performance at the White House (check local listings, PBS) features Patti LuPone, Jennifer Holliday, Brian Stokes Mitchell and James Naughton in a salute to American musicals.
