Salon's TV picks for Thursday, May 24, 2001

Published May 24, 2001 11:01PM (EDT)


And just like that, the season is over and there's nothing on. Friends (8 p.m., NBC) reruns the one where the gang reminisces about turning 30. CSI (9 p.m., CBS) reruns the one about the death row inmate who asks Grissom to help prove he didn't kill his family. Will & Grace (9 p.m., NBC) reruns the one where Will and Grace make fools of themselves at a commitment ceremony for Joe and Larry. ER (10 p.m., NBC) reruns the one where the life flight helicopter crashes with Greene and a heart patient on board. It's going to be a long summer.


Steve Harvey and D.L. Hughley host the 2001 Essence Awards (8 p.m., Fox), honoring African-American achievement in the past year. Samuel L. Jackson, Venus and Serena Williams, Outkast, Denzel Washington and Eve are among those appearing. Cheech Marin hosts Funny Flubs and Screw-Ups (8 p.m., CBS) from various CBS shows. Wonder if they'll show the "Survivor" footage of Michael falling into the fire?


NBA playoffs:
Bucks at 76ers, Game 2 (8:30 p.m., TNT)


Rosie O'Donnell (syndicated) Julianna Margulies, Joan Allen
David Letterman (CBS) Tom Brokaw, Badly Drawn Boy
Jay Leno (NBC) Josh Hartnett
