On Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB), Riley's frat house is possessed
by an evil spirit that gets more powerful every time Riley and Buffy do the
nasty. Scientific American Frontiers (check local times, PBS) celebrates
its 10th anniversary with a look back at some of the greatest scientific
achievements of the past decade. On Angel (9 p.m., WB), Faith surfaces
in L.A., where she goes to work for (who else?) the demonic law firm of Wolfram
and Hart. Nova (check local times, PBS) presents "Stationed in the Stars,"
a look at preparations for the international space station, due to launch in
2004. Sperm donor of the year David Crosby is profiled on Behind the Music (9
p.m., VH1)
. Elizabeth Berkley of "Showgirls" fame guests as a reporter who
gets in Jones' face on NYPD Blue (10 p.m., ABC).


It's the '80s all over again as former Mrs. Mike Tyson Robin Givens and former
"Cosby Show" kid Tempestt Bledsoe team up for the cable movie The Expendables (9
p.m., USA)
, in which they play convicts who are given a chance at freedom if
they take part in a dangerous undercover mission. And while we're on the subject
of women with shady pasts, Court TV presents the nostalgic documentary Tonya
Harding: Ice Follies (10 p.m., Court TV)
, a cautionary tale about a girl, a
dream and a lead pipe. Harding, Robin Givens and Faith the Slayer -- now
that's a "Charlie's Angels" remake I'd pay money to see.
