Salon's TV picks for Thursday, Feb. 8, 2001

Published February 8, 2001 6:29PM (EST)


Having destroyed poor Kel, Jerri now attempts to lure hunky Colby into her web of deceit on Survivor (8 p.m., CBS). Jerri's an aspiring actress, by the way. Gee, do you think she's using "Survivor" as an audition tape? On a plus-sized Friends (8 p.m., NBC), Rachel turns 40 -- oh, sorry, make that 30 -- and her pals recall their own birthday milestones. A 20-minute edition of Saturday Night Live (8:40 p.m., NBC) follows; last week's was brilliant. Will's new boyfriend (Patrick Dempsey) is more comfortable in the closet on Will & Grace (9 p.m., NBC). On CSI (9 p.m., CBS), Nick spends the night with a hooker who is later found dead, and Grissom and Catherine investigate a bombing. Mystery! (9 p.m., PBS, check local times) wraps up "Touching Evil, Series Three" with Creegan getting warm, warmer, hot in the search for the serial killer who torches victims. Lucy Lawless guests as a hooker hired by Elliott to make Maya jealous on Just Shoot Me (9:30 p.m., NBC).


Fox counters "Survivor" with Getting a Ticket in America (8 p.m., Fox), a rerun of a collection of surveillance videos from police stops. The hilarity continues with Stupid Behavior Caught on Tape (9 p.m., Fox). Why don't they just run encore episodes of "Temptation Island"?


Spurs at Nets (8 p.m., TNT)

Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7:30 p.m., ESPN2)


Rosie O'Donnell (syndicated) Anthony Hopkins
David Letterman (CBS) Regis Philbin, Rod Stewart
Jay Leno (NBC) Chris Rock
