Tube Notes

By Mike Hughes
Gannett News Service

"Moonstruck," 5:20 p.m., TBS. The 1987 film "Moonstruck" is gentle and quirky, with the humor and charm of a blue-collar Italian family. Cher plays a widow who’s supposed to marry an older guy, but prefers his younger brother (Nicolas Cage). She won an Academy Award; so did supporting actress Olympia Dukakis and writer John Patrick Shanley.

"The Fugitive," 7 p.m., CBS. Kimble protects a Kansas farmer’s daughter.

"Providence," 7 p.m., NBC. This rerun offers one of the season’s many "Survivor" take-offs — this time from Syd’s imagination.

"Farscape," 7 p.m., Sci Fi. Here’s the season finale for this stylish space tale. Crichton, a captive with a chip in his brain, tries to escape.

"Dark Prince: The True Story of Dracula," 7 p.m., USA Network. Long before the Dracula fiction began a 15th-century Romanian prince known as Vlad Dracul or Vlad Dracula used grisly tactics to overthrow people who conquered his homeland. This cable film, which first aired last Halloween, has a so-so plot, but stylish filming and real settings.

"CSI," 8 p.m., CBS. A convicted murderer asks Gil Grissom (William Petersen) to look at his case.

"Nash Bridges" 9 p.m., CBS. Two lawyers are shot but Nash feels the situation isn’t what it appears to be.
