Series

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB) has another rerun; it's the one in which Buffy and Riley try to deal with each other's secret identities. Biography (8 p.m., A&E) has a new profile of George Carlin. Will & Grace (9 p.m., NBC) reruns the episode in which Grace and Jack get their knickknacks appraised on "Antiques Roadshow." Angel (9 p.m., WB) is a rerun, too; Cordelia has one date with a guy and wakes up hugely pregnant. The new sitcom Talk to Me (9:30 p.m., ABC) stars Kyra Sedgwick as a kooky New York radio personality. Beverly D'Angelo costars as a Dr. Laura knockoff named Dr. Debra.
