Series

Sela Ward's ups and downs are chronicled on Intimate Portrait (7 p.m., Lifetime). Paul Reubens sheds his Pee-wee persona and becomes "Troy Stevens," host of the new game show You Don't Know Jack (8 p.m., ABC). Based on the CD-ROM game of the same name, "You Don't Know Jack" pits contestants against each other and the clock as they answer trivia questions. The bewigged (come on, it has to be!) and lounge-lizardy Stevens heckles them along the way. On a rerun of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (8 p.m., WB), Spike professes his love for the Slayer, which elicits a response of "Eeeww!" C.J.'s world is turned upside down -- literally -- by a cartography group's proposal for a more geographically accurate map on a rerun of The West Wing (9 p.m., NBC). Graduation day arrives for the cast of American High (10 p.m., PBS, check local listings). The new mock celebrity interview series Primetime Glick (10:30 p.m., Comedy Central) stars Martin Short as Jiminy Glick, the world's most inept entertainment journalist. Steve Martin and Bill Maher are his first victims.
