Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB) reruns the Thanksgiving episode where the Scooby Gang is besieged by some unhappy Native American spirits. The Devil hires Martha Stewart to redecorate Hell on God, the Devil and Bob (8:30 p.m., NBC). On Will and Grace (9 p.m., NBC), Will, Grace, Jack and Karen compete to see who has the most compassion. Angel (9 p.m., WB) repeats the seriously heart-tugging episode where Angel's curse is lifted and he becomes human -- and free to boff Buffy again. Richard Belzer sets some kind of record for most crossover appearances as the same character in this week's episode of The Beat (9 p.m., UPN). Belzer's John Munch puts in a cameo in this visually busy cop show from "Homicide" creators Tom Fontana and Barry Levinson. Sipowicz and Sorenson get an education in art while tracking a collector's stolen masterpieces on NYPD Blue (10 p.m., ABC).


Bill Moyers: Surviving the Good Times (check local times, PBS) is the third installment in filmmakers Tom Casciato and Kathleen Hughes documentary series following the financial ups and (mostly) downs of two blue-collar families from Milwaukee. The decadelong project began in 1991; this segment picks up where the filmmakers' last documentary left off in 1996. Moyers narrates.
