Salon's TV picks for Tuesday, July 17, 2001

Published July 17, 2001 5:55PM (EDT)


The Emmy-nominated True Hollywood Story (8 p.m., E!) airs back-to-back in black odes to River Phoenix and David Strickland (9 p.m.) on "Only the Good Die Young" week. Let me repeat -- the Emmy-nominated "True Hollywood Story." However, it's going to be hard for E! to top tonight's Biography (8 p.m., A&E) -- the subject is Robert Blake. P.O.V. (10 p.m., PBS, check local listings) presents "True-Hearted Vixens," a documentary about the 1999 tryouts for the Women's Professional Football League. On a rerun of NYPD Blue (10 p.m., ABC), Fancy sends Diane and Danny to opposite corners after they make their relationship too public.


Devil Rays at Braves (7:30 p.m., TBS)


Rosie O'Donnell (syndicated) Lara Flynn Boyle, Isabella Rossellini (rerun)
David Letterman (CBS) Kelly Ripa, Bob Sarlatte
Jay Leno (NBC) Sean "Puffy" Combs, Henry Kissinger (no, this is not a joke)
Politically Incorrect (ABC) Jon Lovitz, Melissa Joan Hart (rerun)
Conan O'Brien (NBC) Al Roker, Angie Everhart, Nickel Creek
Craig Kilborn (CBS) The White Stripes

All times Eastern unless noted.
