Series

Ally McBeal (9 p.m., Fox) reruns the episode where Nelle joins the firm and Ally defends a woman accused of seducing a teenager. The bonus rerun of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (9 p.m., WB) is Part 2 of the "Graduation Day" episode. The American Experience (check local listings, PBS) presents "Around the World in 72 Days," which chronicles the career of journalist Nellie Bly; her daring exploits (like having herself committed to an insane asylum to expose the mistreatment of the mentally ill, and duplicating Jules Verne's around-the-globe trip in less time than he took) made her the stuff of newspaper legend. On Once & Again (10 p.m., ABC), Karen's secret dalliance with a younger man has some unexpected repercussions.
