Series

Buffy and Riley have an awkward time trying to get used to each other's secret identities on a rerun of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB). On a rerun of Angel (9 p.m., WB), Faith comes to town; mayhem and murder follow. P.O.V. (check local times, PBS) presents "Dreamland," Lisanne Skyler's documentary about Las Vegas. The new series Confidential (10 p.m., VH1) is like a pop-music version of "Unsolved Mysteries." Titillating rumors are examined, for our edification. This week: Were Bob Marley and Kurt Cobain really murdered?
