Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB) reruns the (not very scary) Halloween episode where the gang is trapped in a campus haunted house. Nova (check local times, PBS) begins the five-part miniseries "Secrets of Lost Empires," in which modern engineers and craftspeople attempt to re-create ancient wonders with tools and techniques used at the time. Angel (9 p.m., WB) is a rerun too; it's the one where Doyle's ex-wife shows up to gain his blessing to remarry. Seven naked corpses and one annoying serial killer profiler add up to trouble for Sipowicz and Sorenson on NYPD Blue (10 p.m., ABC).

The new TV movie Cabin by the Lake (9 p.m., USA) is a screamfest -- or gigglefest, depending on how seriously you take made for cable slasher flicks starring Judd Nelson. What if John Lennon and Paul McCartney got together for one last fling in the late '70s? The new cable movie Two of Us (9 p.m., VH1) imagines a Saturday spent by John (Jared Harris) and Paul (Aidan Quinn)in New York City. They fight, they hug, they stroll in Central Park, they make some Jiffy Pop and watch TV -- it's like "Mad About You" with a Liverpool accent.
