Tube Notes

"Gideon’s Crossing," 9 p.m., ABC. With its spectacular pilot, "Gideon’s Crossing" established itself as TV’s best new drama. Crisply written and beautifully played, it has Andre Braugher as a brilliant cancer specialist in a teaching hospital. Then the show settled into its Wednesday time slot where it was promptly ignored. Tonight, "Gideon’s Crossing" moves to Mondays for a second chance. It starts with an episode worth seeing. A fierce virus is rippling through the hospital, baffling everyone. What could possibly affect separate patients on different wings each with a different ailment and treatment?

"Elvis: That’s the Way It Is," 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., Turner Classic Movies. The 1970 version of this documentary showed Elvis Presley in a Las Vegas concert. Now comes a re-edited version that attempts to offer a more personal glimpse of Presley. See story.

"The Object of My Affection," 7 p.m., ABC. Jennifer Aniston plays a pregnant woman who rooms with a gay man. Complications come from a one-sided romance in this 1998 film.

"Ally McBeal," 8 p.m., Fox. We’ve been following the wobbly relationship between Larry (Robert Downey, Jr.) and Ally. Now his ex-love, played by former supermodel Famke Janssen, is ready to take their son to Canada.

"Jazz," 9 p.m., PBS. As this chapter starts, the stock market is crashing and Prohibition is in its final years.
