It's been such a riveting three-parter on "Law & Order," I almost hate to see it end. But it does, tonight.
"Friends" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Whiny Ross has a tough time of things, what with Rachel going out on her first date since their break-up. And Monica keeps trying to fall in love with a millionaire who thinks she's just swell. NBC.
"The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- With Easter just around the corner, CBS puts something for the kids on prime time: adaptations of two stories from the pen of Beatrix Potter. "The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny" is a cautionary tale about the price of ignoring your mother (Peter sneaks into Mr. Potter's garden and gets caught), while "The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies and Mrs. Tittlemouse" relates the danger of eating too much (the flopsy bunnies gorge themselves, fall asleep and nearly get made into a pie). CBS.
"Living Single" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- In a repeat from November, rapper Tone Loc plays the bully who used to torment Kyle (T.C. Carson). He's since fallen on hard times, leading to the question: Can -- and should -- Kyle help him? Fox.
"Maloney" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Wisecracking, sensitive cop psychiatrist Nick comes to the aid of his former girlfriend, who's been keeping tabs on the boy she gave up for adoption and fears he may be in trouble. Lucky gal; bet he takes care of everything. CBS.
"New York Undercover" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- A female bounty hunter comes to the Big Apple and sets her eyes on J.C. (Malik Yoba). Fox.
"Law & Order" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- The big New York/Hollywood murder case comes to a close, but not without some fireworks. The tabloids come into play, Ross' ex bares his fangs and the revelation of Curtis' affair with the pretty studio employee threatens his already crumbling marriage. NBC.
"48 Hours" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- CBS news re-creates the Empire State Building shooting, interviews the alleged shooter's family and asks if any place is really safe. I suspect this is more information than we need to have. CBS.
"The Seven Little Foys" (11: 30 p.m.-1: 15 a.m., AMC) -- Bob Hope plays vaudeville legend Eddie Foy, who dragged his whole family into the act. This is probably one of Hope's best movies, especially among those that didn't also feature Bing Crosby. Special treat: James Cagney reprises his Oscar-winning role as the loose-limbed George M. Cohan.
