On Ed (9 p.m., NBC), the bowling alley lawyer is foolish enough to complain to Carol about his love troubles with Bonnie. Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (8 p.m., ABC) wraps up its two-night pop star special. Joey and Pacey are left behind at the ski lodge -- all alone -- on Dawson's Creek (8 p.m., WB). On The West Wing (9 p.m., NBC), Bartlet and staff are in full crisis mode over the kidnapped DEA agents, and the fallout from the State of the Union address continues to pile up. Drew, still in a coma, meets Mimi's unborn son on The Drew Carey Show (9 p.m., ABC). On Once and Again (10 p.m., ABC), Rick is one unpopular guy, thanks to the Miles Drentell project he's working on.


Fox replaces "Temptation Island" tonight with the two-hour farewell concert Barbra Streisand: Timeless (8 p.m., Fox), taped on New Year's Eve 1999 in Las Vegas. As a concession to the popularity of "Temptation Island," however, Ytossie and Taheed will act out pivotal scenes from "Funny Girl" and "Yentl" during the commercial breaks. The documentary Captured on Film: The True Story of Marion Davies (8 p.m., Turner Classic Movies) looks at the life and career of "Citizen Kane" inspiration William Randolph Hearst's Hollywood mistress. The miniseries Haven (9 p.m., CBS) concludes. Natasha Richardson stars in the real-life story of a journalist who shepherded Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany to America.
