Biography (8 p.m., A&E) offers another new rock legend profile, "Jimi Hendrix: The Man They Made God." Catchy title. Buffy deals with a really annoying roommate on a rerun of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB). The new drama series Bull (8 p.m., repeated 9 and 10 p.m., TNT) debuts. Michael S. Chernuchin ("Law & Order") created this series about young Wall Street investment bankers who split off from an old established firm to cash in on the new economy. George Newbern, Elisabeth Rohm (Kate from "Angel"), Malik Yoba and Stanley Tucci are among the stars. In the pilot episode (repeated three times tonight), the series' message comes through loud and clear: Don't feel guilty about making money. Angel (9 p.m., WB) reruns the one where our boy shows his feminist side when he helps some alien women escape from their Taliban-like society. The Daily Show (11 p.m., Comedy Central) continues its coverage of the Democratic Convention. Bob Dole and Robert Reich provide commentary.
