Tube Notes

By Mike Hughes
Gannett News Service

MUST-SEE: "The Drew Carey Show," 8 p.m., ABC: Some shows turn stale with age and others find ways to stay fresh, frisky and fun. Carey’s show is definitely the second kind. It has mixed things up with everything from musical numbers to bizarre plot twists. Now comes a fresh approach: Drew is in a coma, hovering between life and whatever is next. It turns out to be a pleasant, Drew-style afterlife, full of odd pleasures.

"Bette," 7 p.m., CBS: Bette volunteers at her daughter’s school and, of course, manages to embarrass her.

"Ed," 7 p.m., NBC: In a rare show of excess, Ed has two women interested in him.

"Twice in a Lifetime" (Pax) 7 p.m. and "Bojangles" (Showtime), 8 p.m.: Two Black History Month tales focus on 1930s-era entertainment. "Twice" has Earl Hyman as a musician who flashes back to a federal raid that changed his life.

"Bojangles" traces the life of Bill Robinson, who danced his way from vaudeville to Broadway and Hollywood.

"Jewel," 8 p.m., CBS: Farrah Fawcett and Patrick Bergin are excellent in this film as parents whose belated fifth child is born with Down syndrome. Since this is 1945 in a rural setting, they have nowhere to turn.

"The West Wing," 8 p.m., NBC: Most staffers are cheerful about the president’s "State of the Union" speech. His wife isn’t.

"Spin City," 8:30 p.m., ABC. Jason Priestley, who stars as one of Charlie’s friends, decides to pursue Caitlin.
