Series

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB) reruns the one where Buffy's annoying roommate is putting her in a really bad mood. Last week's episode, "Hush," was the first great episode this season. Joss Whedon's sneaky answer to "Scream" brought the series back into audacious form with genuinely scary voice-stealing demons, nearly a half-hour of silent-movie action and, perhaps, the beginning of a college lesbian experience for Willow. Hopefully, "Buffy" is back. Nova (check local times, PBS) presents "Electric Heart," a look at progress in artificial heart technology since the first device was implanted 30 years ago. Grace uses Will as bait to land an important (and gay) client on a rerun of Will & Grace (9 p.m., NBC). Angel (9 p.m., WB) reruns the one about the spooky doctor who stalks a woman by detaching his eyes and hands and psychically sending them after her. Sports Night (9:30 p.m., ABC) is one of the few shows not airing a rerun tonight. Dana's football jock brother has been busted for using steroids; Secret Santa time has the staff in a panic. On a new episode of Once and Again (10 p.m., ABC), Lily tries to sort out her feelings for Jake and Rick and decide whether she really wants to end her marriage.
