Salon's TV picks for Wednesday, May 30, 2001

Published May 30, 2001 5:48PM (EDT)


The Simpsons (8 p.m., Fox) reruns the one in which Bart uncovers the truth about boy bands; 'N Sync shows up for humiliation, self-inflicted and otherwise. On a rerun of Dawson's Creek (8 p.m., WB), Joey has too many responsibilities and too little time to study, and Jack and Jen attend a seminar for gay teens. Get ready for next Sunday's season opener with last season's finale of Sex and the City (9 p.m., HBO), in which Carrie is bedeviled by a cock -- the kind that crows outside her window at 5 a.m. The school band spends spring break on a concert trip to China on American High (10:30 p.m., PBS, check local listings).


While "The Simpsons" rip their genre on another network, Howie, Nick, Kevin, Brian and A.J. perform in concert in Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life (8 p.m., CBS). Unsolved cases, including the alleged UFO crash at Roswell, N.M., are (yawn) reopened in Million Dollar Mysteries (9 p.m., Fox).


Yankees at Red Sox (7 p.m., ESPN)
Diamondbacks at Giants (10 p.m., ESPN2)

NBA playoffs:
Bucks at 76ers, Game 5 (9 p.m., NBC)


Rosie O'Donnell (syndicated) Best moments of the year
David Letterman (CBS) Tom Cavanagh, Stupid Pet Tricks (rerun)
Jay Leno (NBC) Billy Joel and Elton John (rerun)
