MUST-SEE: "The Fugitive," 8 p.m., CBS. When the season started this seemed like a sure hit. Instead, it has wobbled and CBS has scrambled for an explanation. One goes like this: No new drama has done well in a timeslot where it faces an existing drama from one of the big-four networks. Uncontested dramas ("Boston Public," "Dark Angel") thrived; others didn’t. So here’s a solution: "CSI," which has gotten great ratings, is moving to Thursdays and is being replaced by "The Fugitive," which won’t have to compete with NBC’s "Providence." That may help this show, which has Tim Daly as a guy falsely convicted of murder. Tonight, he’s one of a group of homeless people sent to a psychiatric ward. Sought by one set of authorities he’s now controlled by another.

"Michael," 3:05 p.m., TBS. Nora Ephron skillfully directed this 1996 film about a seedy angel (John Travolta) sent to Earth for reasons that aren’t immediately clear. The result is a pleasant mix of comedy and drama.

"Diagnosis Murder," 7 p.m., CBS. This show moves to a tough time slot. Tonight it starts a two-parter in which a current murder might be linked to one Mark’s dad faced 50 years ago.

"Law and Order: Special Victims Unit," 9 p.m., NBC. A murder leads to a probe of sex addiction.
