Series

Demons steal the voices of everyone in Sunnydale on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB). Will & Grace (9 p.m., NBC) dump their boring neighbors and look for a more swinging set of friends. Coincidentally, Dharma and Greg (9 p.m., ABC) interview couples to find new best friends. Hmmm. On Angel (9 p.m., WB), Angel and Cordelia are still trying to cope with Doyle's death. So are we. And it probably won't make too many fans feel better to see that the annoying wuss of a Watcher, Wesley (Alexis Denisof), has migrated over to "Angel" from "Buffy." Dan's therapist probes the origin of his obsessive flirting on Sports Night (9:30 p.m., ABC). The pilot of Once and Again (10 p.m., ABC) is rerun for latecomers to the series.
