Series

Will and Nicole battle it out in the final episode of Big Brother 2 (8 p.m., CBS). Friends (8 p.m., NBC) repeats last season's cliffhanger finale, featuring one wedding, two pregnancies (only one of them real) and, for some reason, a guest appearance by Gary Oldman. Cold Feet (8 p.m. PT/ 11 ET, Bravo) begins reruns of the British relationship comedy-drama's third season. Adam and Rachel make a commitment, Pete and Jenny are living apart and Karen and David bring home twins. It's like "Friends," but cooler.

Specials

David Frost: One on One with Michael Douglas (9 p.m., A&E) gets too up close and personal with the vaguely creepy Mr. D.

Sports

Baseball:
Astros at Giants (3:30 p.m., Fox Family)
Braves at Phillies (7 p.m., TBS)

Talk

Although New York-based "Late Show with David Letterman" and "Rosie O'Donnell" are back with new shows, their guest rosters are in flux this week. Below are the confirmed talk show listings.
