Series

Carol and Bonnie fight over the bowling alley lawyer on Ed (8 p.m., NBC). On Dawson's Creek (8 p.m., WB), Pacey and Joey have the perfect opportunity to hook up on the class ski trip, but do they? The White House is besieged with national and personal crises on the night of Bartlet's State of the Union address on a new West Wing (9 p.m., NBC). The Drew Carey Show (9 p.m., ABC) pulls a sweeps stunt in which Drew falls into a coma and experiences the afterlife. Surprisingly, it's a lot like Temptation Island (9 p.m., Fox).
