'Holocaust' miniseries has lost none of its strength


The hands-down best thing on TV tonight is a 19-year-old miniseries airing all week on the Family Channel. Beyond that, you're on your own.

"Cosby" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Hilton takes his wife's advice and enters group therapy, where he ends up giving lots of advice himself, most of it bad. CBS.

Hey, at least he won't be doing commentary on gymnastics. (Times are approximate; remember, it's pledge time.) PBS.

"Melrose Place" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Trouble's a-brewin' for newlyweds Michael and Megan (Thomas Calabro, Kelly Rutherford). Oh my. Fox.

tTC "Intersection" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- A car accident gives Richard Gere, Sharon Stone and Lolita Davidovich the chance to interact in ways only possible in Hollywood. ABC.

"Chicago Hope" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Shut and (( Watters (Adam Arkin and Hector Elizondo) announce they're going to buy the hospital, but the staff isn't sure that's good news. Meanwhile, the good doctors try to treat patients despite constant interference from HMO folks, who are definitely playing the heavies here. CBS.


"Biography" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., repeats midnight-1 a.m., A&E;) -- Rasputin, the mad monk who inadvertently helped bring about the Russian revolution, gets the bio treatment.

"Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., HBO) -- Spike Lee looks at the late Curt Flood, the St. Louis Cardinals' outfielder who helped bring down baseball's reserve clause by refusing a 1969 trade to the Phillies.
