Tube Notes

MUST-SEE: "Haven" conclusion, 8 p.m., CBS: In the first half of this true story, a token group of 1,000 Jews was transported from Europe to the United States during World War II. Ruth Gruber (superbly played by Natasha Richardson), a young Jewish woman in the Department of the Interior, accompanied them. Her idealism was shaken by the indifference of other Americans. Tonight, new struggles cover a broad range. There is romance in the camp and resentment in the nearby town. There are struggles with the government and revelations about a cover-up.

"Barbra Streisand — Timeless," 7 p.m., Fox: As the year 2000 approached, Streisand did a New Year’s Eve concert in Las Vegas. Here’s what you missed.

"Ed," 7 p.m., NBC: Ed’s love life got way too lucky last week. He ended up with Bonnie, causing trouble with his true love, Carol.

"The West Wing," 8 p.m., NBC: There are fresh aftershocks from the State of the Union speech, plus lingering trouble in Colombia.

"The Drew Carey Show," 8 p.m., ABC: Last week’s innovative effort left Drew in a coma. He’s still there, with a fresh twist: His soul temporarily is in the body of Mimi’s baby.

"American Masters," 9:30, PBS: In 1960s Jamaica, musicians had makeshift methods. They would cut a record in the morning, press it in the afternoon and blast it out of giant speakers that night. For Bob Marley, profiled here, that was a start. During trips to visit his mother in America, he was a janitor and a factory worker. Back home, he was a phenom, ranging from political rage to romantic passion. Eventually, that scored big. The New York Times called Marley the most influential artist of the second half of the 20th century.
