Boston Public (8 p.m., Fox) concludes its crossover with "The Practice." On Ally McBeal (9 p.m., Fox), Richard hires a rainmaker (Taye Diggs), and Barry Manilow has a cameo as himself. Ray and Debra have a less than romantic Valentine's Day dinner date on Everybody Loves Raymond (9 p.m., CBS). An armed man holds Judge Sims hostage on 100 Centre Street (9 p.m., A&E). Boies' prodigal dad (guest Billy Dee Williams) is admitted to the hospital on Gideon's Crossing (10 p.m., ABC).


Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, Shirley MacLaine and Joan Collins play Hollywood has-beens revving up for a comeback. Is this the premise of a "Saturday Night Live" skit? No, it's the new TV movie These Old Broads (8 p.m., ABC). The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show (8 p.m., USA) opens its 125th annual competition. Chuck Woolery hosts Kiss the Bride (9 p.m., WB), a reality special in which three couples compete to win a televised wedding and honeymoon. To where, "Temptation Island"? Samuel L. Jackson presides over the ESPY Awards (9 p.m., ESPN), honoring the best athletic performances of 2000.
