Series

Telly "Kojak" Savalas is remembered on Biography (8 p.m. ET/9 PT, A&E) as TV detective week continues. Who loves ya, baby? On Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB), the Watcher's Council kidnaps Buffy, mistaking her for Faith, while the real Faith is on the loose. Nova (check local times, PBS) wraps up "Secrets of Lost Empires" with the re-creation of the building of a 12th century Chinese bridge. On Angel (9 p.m., WB), our boy is lured into competing in a demon version of "Fight Club." Frontline (check local times, PBS) concludes a two-part report on the campaign to free Kosovo. The squad uncovers a hate crime angle on a homicide on NYPD Blue (10 p.m., ABC).

Specials

TV Guide's The Truth Behind the Sitcoms 4 (8 p.m., Fox) tells you everything you never wanted to know about "Happy Days," "The Jeffersons" and "One Day at a Time." Darrell Hammond as Regis Philbin and Will Ferrell as Alex Trebek host Saturday Night Live: The Best of the Game Show Parodies (8 p.m., NBC). Skits include "Quien Es Mas Macho" from back in your parents' days, and the more recent "Celebrity Jeopardy" (hopefully with Hammond as Sean Connery bellowing, "So Trebek, we meet again!").
