Salon's TV picks for Wednesday, March 1, 2000

Published March 1, 2000 5:00PM (EST)


Liz and Max give in to temptation on Roswell (9 p.m., WB). The Drew Carey Show (9 p.m., ABC) has its third annual error-filled April Fool's show (a month early), while Norm (9:30 p.m., ABC) has a stunt episode filled with dialogue and scenes from famous movies. The new series Tale Lights (10 p.m., Bravo) stars correspondent Jay Schadler, who hitchhikes across America looking for people with interesting lives. On Law & Order (10 p.m., NBC), there's a murder at a brokerage firm and it looks like the mob is involved. Documentary filmmaker Errol Morris ("Dr. Death") brings his unsettling style to the new series First Person (10:30 p.m., Bravo), half-hour portraits of the odd and unique. The debut installment is "Stairway to Heaven," about an autistic woman who (it says here) runs a slaughterhouse.

The 10th Kingdom (8 p.m., NBC) is still on, even though it's getting its butt kicked every night by "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire." Truly a sweeps to remember. Steely Dan celebrate the release of their new album, "Two Against Nature," with a rare TV appearance on the concert show In the Spotlight (check local listings, PBS), which premieres Wednesday on some PBS affiliates (and runs throughout the next week or so in others).
