Tube Notes

By Mike Hughes
Gannett News Service

Tonight's Must-See

"That '70s Show," 7 p.m., FOX. Keep an eye on Brittany Daniel, who has made a specialty of playing forbidden love. Last season, she was the temptress Eve on "Dawson's Creek." Tonight, in a new episode, she plays someone Eric lusts after but knows he shouldn't because she's his cousin. And when "That '80s Show" premieres Wednesday, she plays a bisexual who dazzles and perplexes many people.

Of Note

"JAG," 7 p.m., CBS. All three main characters are thrown into this military trial. Mac is the prosecutor, Harm is the defense lawyer and Bud is a juror.

"InStyle: Celebrity Weddings II," 7 p.m., NBC. This is how you and I would get married, if we were rich and beautiful. The special views the weddings of Pierce Brosnan, Toni Braxton, Eddie Cibrian and Andie McDowell.

"Undeclared," 7:30 p.m., FOX. Earlier, we learned that Steven's parents had separated. Now they must be together, for parents' weekend.

"24," 8 p.m., FOX. Last week's sensational episode brought things to a key point. Jack (Keifer Sutherland) was being manipulated by assassins who held his wife and daughter. They forced him to aid an attempt to kill Palmer, the presidential candidate. That was thwarted at the last moment. Now that Jack has been arrested, he has a tough time convincing anyone of his story.

"The Secret Life of the Brain" premiere, 9 p.m., PBS. A while back, PBS referred to the brain as "the organ of the '90s." Now it tries to extend that into another millennium with this series that will run for five hours on four Tuesdays. It's from David Grubin, best-known for his brilliant portraits, ranging from Abraham Lincoln to the Roosevelts. Tonight, that starts with the brain's early development.

"The Guardian," 8 p.m., CBS. John de Lancie, known for his brilliant work as Q in the "Star Trek" tales, plays a friend who wants Nick to draw up his will.

"Philly," 9 p.m., ABC. The so-so opener is rerun, with Kim Delaney as a relatively new lawyer, suddenly forced to double her workload.
