There's no election in Sunnydale, just business as usual for Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB). We learn a little more about Tara on her birthday, and Glory, the babelicious beast from hell, continues to plot against the Slayer. Rugrats (8:30 p.m., Nickelodeon) begins a three-part "prequel" to the upcoming "Rugrats in Paris" movie. On Angel (9 p.m., WB), Wesley pretends to be his boss while the big guy is out of town. Jon Stewart is joined by Bob Dole for the election night edition of The Daily Show (10 p.m., Comedy Central). Not that this election night is going to be very funny. It's time to say farewell to Julie, Matt, David and the gang as The Real World: New Orleans (10 p.m., MTV) comes to an end. But don't fret, reality fans -- there are only 59 days left until "Love Cruise."
Election? What election? The new TV movie Chippendales Murder (9 p.m., USA) unveils the true story about the intrigue surrounding the founders of the male-stripper chain.
