Salon's TV picks for Tuesday, May 15, 2001

Published May 15, 2001 5:26PM (EDT)


On the next-to-last Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB) of the season, the gang searches for a way to bring Buffy out of the catatonic state she fell into when Glory snatched Dawn. Angel (9 p.m., WB) also has its next-to-last episode of the season. The guys are still in Pylea, trying to persuade newly crowned Princess Cordelia to come home. The WB will announce its fall schedule Tuesday, and reportedly will keep "Angel" on the Frog, even though mate "Buffy" has jumped ship to UPN. This astonishing news is made even more astonishing by the WB's plan to move "Angel" out of its Tuesday time slot to Monday at 9, where it will have nothing in common with its lead-in, the squeaky-clean family show "7th Heaven." Can you say "spite"? On Part 1 of a two-part season finale of Dharma & Greg (9 p.m., ABC), the couple sees a marriage counselor (guest Kirstie Alley) after Dharma admits she's attracted to her old flame (Kevin Sorbo). Can you say "'Mad About You' -- the sweeps separation"? Frontline (10 p.m., PBS, check local listings) presents "LAPD Blues," a look at the recent corruption scandals within the Los Angeles police force. Danny Sorenson is doing a lot of self-corrupting on NYPD Blue (10 p.m., ABC) as he continues to fall apart in slow motion.
