Series

Spike searches for a legendary gem that will make him impervious to sunlight, stakes and crosses on a rerun of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB). It's a crossover with Angel (9 p.m., WB); Spike's quest takes him to L.A., where he spies on Angel's damsel-saving from the shadows and provides a hilarious deconstruction of our hero's brooding persona ("Quick, to the Angelmobile!"). Jerry Seinfeld is the voice of an egotistical supercomputer on a rerun of Dilbert (8:30 p.m., UPN). 60 Minutes II (10 p.m., CBS) has coverage of the Republican National Convention. So does The Daily Show (11 p.m., Comedy Central), except sillier.
