This is your last night of non-Olympics TV for quite a while. Enjoy it while you can.
"High Incident" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Real-life Marine R. Lee Ermy, who also had a role in Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket," guest stars in this repeat as Officer Van Camp's racist, ex-Marine officer dad. ABC.
"Friends" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBL, Channel 11) -- In another repeat, Joey belittles the writers of "One Life To Live," which can VTC mean only one thing: His character on the soap is doomed. What's that line about not biting the hand that feeds you? NBC.
"Mad About You" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- In his dream, Paul kisses his boss -- played by Gates McFadden of "Star Trek: The Next Generation." He also gets to kiss her in Jamie's dream (lucky guy). Then, to top off this evening of fantasy, the gang from "Laugh-In" shows up, including Henry Gibson, Jo Anne Worley and Arte Johnson. Very interesting and very funny, one of last season's best. NBC.
"Living Single" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- It's actors-who-play-superheroes night, as Dean Cain (Superman) and Burt Ward (Robin, the Boy Wonder) show up in this repeat. Fox.
"ER" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Nearly two-dozen kids suffering from malnutrition are found abandoned in a run-down building. (Yes, of course, it's another repeat). NBC.
"Emmy Award Nominations" (8: 30 a.m.-9 a.m., repeats at 8: 30 p.m., E!) -- Can't wait to find out whether Candice Bergen is
eligible to win another Emmy for "Murphy Brown," or which members of the "ER" cast are singled out? Then you won't want to miss this, as the nominees for this year Emmys are announced live from Hollywood.
"North and South" (7 p.m.-9 p.m., Family Channel) -- The final chapter of this bloated miniseries set in the antebellum South ends at the beginning: the bombardment of Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861. All sorts of big-name and soon-to-be-big-name stars saunter their way through this one, including Patrick Swayze, Kirstie Alley, Parker Stevenson (who would later become Mr. Kirstie Alley), James Read, Genie Francis, Hal Holbrook, Gene Kelly, Morgan Fairchild, etc. The Family Channel begins airing "North and South, Book II" at 7 p.m. Sunday.
"Bedtime" (10 p.m.-10: 30 p.m., Showtime) -- A bunch of couples -- some young, some old, some gay, some married, some not -- are shown talking incessantly in their bedrooms. This latest adult series from Showtime (it's all shot in the bedroom, you see, so there's occasional nudity and racy language) is wonderful if you like watching people who don't know when, or how, to shut up.
