Salon's TV picks for Tuesday, March 14, 2000

Published March 14, 2000 5:00PM (EST)


Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB) repeats the one where Willow's spell makes Giles go blind and Buffy and Spike fall in love. On God, the Devil and Bob (8:30 p.m., NBC), the Devil takes Bob's teenage daughter Megan on her first date. Some religious groups are protesting the show as being blasphemous, but it's actually very pro-God and pro-faith. The only blasphemy it commits is to the gods of comedy -- last week's premiere was nearly laugh-free. On a rerun of Angel (9 p.m., WB), Angel and Cordelia are having trouble dealing with Doyle's death. This is the one where Charisma Carpenter gets to show off her impeccable comic timing in an audition scene where she is suddenly afflicted with a little something Doyle gave her. Casey and Dan have a spat over the differences in their work ethics and Jeremy tries to keep Natalie from finding out that his new girlfriend is a porn actress on Sports Night (9:30 p.m., ABC). On NYPD Blue (10 p.m., ABC), Fancy and Baldwin reach out to a colleague in trouble. The new comedy Son of the Beach (10:30 p.m., FX) premieres. Howard Stern is the executive producer of this "Baywatch" parody starring Tim Stack ("Nightstand with Dick Dietrick").
