Kevin "Hercules" Sorbo guests on Just Shoot Me (8 p.m., NBC) as Maya's new beau. Our star-crossed lovers are reunited on sweeps crossover episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB) and Angel (9 p.m., WB). Angel returns to Sunnydale when Doyle has a psychic flash that Buffy is in danger; while there, a fluke event lifts the curse on Angel's soul, making him eligible to do the nasty again. On Will & Grace (9 p.m., NBC), Karen's old "film" career surfaces and Jack's mother visits. On Judging Amy (10 p.m., CBS), Amy faces her toughest challenge yet as a single, working mother -- cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Frontline (check local times, PBS) presents the Center for Investigative Reporting documentary "Justice for Sale," an expose of campaign financing on the judicial election process in cities across the United States. Bill Moyers is the correspondent. Lily wants to spend Thanksgiving with Rick, but her visiting parents (guests Bonnie Bartlett and Paul Mazursky) insist on inviting her ex, Jake, to dinner on Once and Again (10 p.m., ABC).
