On Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB), Buffy attends a beer blast where the brew is laced with a demonic little something that brings out drinkers' primal instincts. Must be Heineken. JAG (8 p.m., CBS) goes "X-File"-y with an episode in which the officer in charge of a psychic research project is charged with manslaughter when a subject commits suicide. Dilbert (8:30 p.m., UPN) has its season premiere. Dilbert revisits the mall where Dadbert abandoned him as a child, causing lifelong emotional trauma. Buck Henry and Jeri Ryan provide the guest voices. Cordelia moves into a new apartment, which happens to be haunted, on Angel (9 p.m., WB). Jeremy's Y2K readiness test is a disaster on Sports Night (9:30 p.m., ABC). On Judging Amy (10 p.m., CBS), Amy presides over a child custody dispute between white foster parents and a black biological grandparent. Also, Maxine and a colleague (guest Marlee Matlin) disagree in a case involving a hearing-impaired child. Grace and Zoe meet their dad's new girlfriend, and Rick and Karen are thrown into close quarters when they travel to Eli's basketball tournament on Once and Again (10 p.m., ABC).
