Series

Goodbye Dylan. Goodbye Donna. Goodbye
Kelly. Brenda, where are you! Beverly
Hills, 90210 (8 p.m., Fox)
bows out
for good with a two-hour series finale.
It's junior-prom time on Dawson's
Creek (8 p.m., WB)
and the gang's
tangled relationships make it pretty
darn hard to decide who's going with
who. The West Wing (9 p.m., NBC)
ends its season with a cliffhanger (it's
coming back next fall) in which disaster
strikes when everybody's looking the
other way. The Drew Carey Show (9
p.m., ABC)
has a season-ending
parody of other shows' tragedy-laden
season finales. On Felicity (9 p.m.,
WB)
, our heroine must decide between
a summer internship in New York or
summer with Ben in California. A dead
college student leads to strip clubs and insider
trading (of course) on Law & Order
(10 p.m., NBC)
. Michael J. Fox talks
about his upcoming exit from "Spin City"
on 20/20 (10 p.m., ABC). Michael
Moore is back for a new season of mayhem
on The Awful Truth (10 p.m.,
Bravo)
. The season opener finds him
inviting presidential candidates to take
a leap into a mosh pit.

Specials

Mama Naomi and Wynonna hit the concert trail
in The Judds: Power to Change (8

CBS)
takes the stage -- well, the
miniseries concludes, anyway.
