Tube Notes

Mike Hughes, Gannett News Service, and Advertiser staff


"Warrior Pride: A Season To Remember," at 7 p.m., on CBS, kicks off two hours of locally produced KGMB specials. On "Warrior Pride," the UH Warriors football team's memorable recent season —from head coach June Jones near-fatal auto accident to tailgating to cheerleading to balancing academics and athletics — is recapped. Next up, "Showdown At Sunset: The 2001 Hawaiian Surf Season," at 7:30 p.m., shows off the Triple Crown of Surfing's incomparable North Shore surf breaks, while surf legend Sunny Garcia waxes nostalgic over his professional career and continued Sunset Beach dominance. KGMB's local offerings wrap up at 8 p.m. with "Emme's Christmas Moments Past," featuring DisGuyz, a stocking full of chestnuts from previous Christmas "Island Moments" and, of course, Emme Tomimbang.


"Providence," 7 p.m., NBC. Dating is the issue tonight on all sides. Syd tries a "speed dating" program. Joanie is featured on "Blind Date." Their dad meets someone (played by Marcia Strassman of "Welcome Back, Kotter") at the rehab center. And their brother faces a Christmas-gift issue with his new wife.

"The Santa Claus Brothers," 8 p.m., Disney Channel. In a sea of reruns, here's a new hour of animation. Santa's sons — voiced by Richard Kind, Kevin McDonald and Harland Williams — compete to take over the top job.

"Can't Stop the Music" (1980), 3 p.m., AMC. Remember when the "C" in AMC stood for "classics?" No one would have imagined the channel would show a disco movie starring The Village People, Valerie Perrine and Bruce Jenner. Director Nancy Walker (better known as an actress) made a great-looking film. The script, alas, is dull-witted.

"24," 8 p.m., FOX. If you missed Tuesday's episode of this great series, here's a second chance. Jack's teenage daughter meets the person who had her kidnapped; meanwhile, her friend has finally been found by a worried parent.

"Reba," 9 p.m., WB (seen on KFVE). Park Overall ("Empty Nest") plays Reba's friend who is helping with a garage sale.

"Once and Again," 9 p.m., ABC. Tiffany's baby is ready to arrive — when everyone's trapped by a Christmas Eve snowstorm.

"Law and Order: Special Victims Unit," 9 p.m., NBC. Paige Turco ("The Agency") guests in a story that asks, among other things, whether women can be convicted of sexually assaulting a man.
