Series

On a rerun of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB), Adam escapes from the Initiative's headquarters and the soldier boys can do precious little about it. Dilbert (8:30 p.m., UPN) begins a two-parter where Dilbert is infected by a space virus. On a rerun of Angel (9 p.m., WB), our boy helps a woman whose doctor is stalking her in a most unusual manner. The new NBC sitcom M.Y.O.B. (9:30 p.m., NBC) -- actually, it's a sitcom that didn't make the cut this past fall or spring -- was executive produced by Don Roos, who did the Christina Ricci movie "The Opposite of Sex." Katharine Towne stars as a Ricci-esque runaway teen who goes to live with her no-nonsense aunt (Lauren Graham), who might be her birth mother. Thurgood sees a vision of a black Jesus and gets religion on The PJs (9:30 p.m., Fox).
