Our long national nightmare is over: Big Brother (8 p.m. Fri., CBS) packs it in. Oh, how will we fill our empty hours without it?! For the five people watching the rerun, Survivor (9 p.m. Fri., CBS) airs the two-hour finale. Seriously, if you didn't see it the first time, tune in for Sue's now-classic address to the jury. If Marcia Clark had come up with this speech, O.J. would be behind bars now. 60 Minutes (7 p.m. Sun., CBS) returns for another season. The Hills get behind candidate Dubya on King of the Hill (7:30 p.m. Sun., Fox). Heather Paige Kent plays a New Jersey bartender in her 30s who ditches her fiancé to go to college in the new comedy-drama That's Life (8 p.m. Sun., CBS). Ellen Burstyn, Paul Sorvino and Debi Mazar costar. Michael Caine reveals the secrets of his craft on Inside the Actors' Studio (8 p.m. ET/ 9 PT, Sun., Bravo). Miranda may have found Mr. Right on Sex and the City (9 p.m. Sun., HBO). He's come a long way since "Tea for the Tillerman": The artist formerly known as Cat Stevens is profiled on an extra-juicy 90-minute Behind the Music (9 p.m. Sun., VH1). The Practice (10 p.m. Sun., ABC) reruns last season's finale, featuring stunning American Sign Language scenes from Camryn Manheim and guest Marlee Matlin. Oh, yeah, there's also a really dumb wedding.
