MUST-SEE: "Boston Public," 7 p.m., Fox: Ellenor Frutt, the lawyer Camryn Manheim plays on ABC’s "The Practice," is Kevin Riley’s lawyer. She’s defending the football coach against misconduct charges. Both shows are produced by David Kelley and are done with a bigger-than-life style.

"These Old Broads," 7 p.m., ABC: Long ago, Elizabeth Taylor stole Debbie Reynolds’ husband, Eddie Fisher. It must be water under the bridge, because now both women are starring together in a comedy co-written by Carrie Fisher, the daughter of Reynolds and Fisher. The story, which also stars Shirley MacLaine and Joan Collins, has a proposed reunion of a musical-movie cast.

"Crocodile Hunter: Africa’s Deadliest Snakes," 7 p.m., NBC: Not content with facing killer crocodiles, Steve Irwin now looks for cobras and more.

"Ally McBeal," 8 p.m., Fox: The firm hires a new attorney (Taye Diggs) who is supposed to bring in extra customers.

"American Experience," 9 p.m., PBS. Here’s a fascinating profile of Marcus Garvey. After growing up in Jamaica, he launched the Harlem-based Universal Negro Improvement Association. It had businesses, a newspaper and even a shipping line. Garvey’s vision also included an Africa run by Africans.

"Gideon’s Crossing," 9 p.m., ABC: Billy Dee Williams guest stars as the father of Dr. Aaron Boies (Russell Hornsby), the chief resident.
