"Survivor: The Amazon," 7 p.m., CBS. Life is way too complicated most Thursdays, when NBC's "Friends" and CBS' "Survivor" collide. That won't be a problem for two weeks. CBS has college basketball on Thursdays and Fridays, nudging "Survivor" to Wednesdays. Tonight, a sixth person is ousted.
"Shane" (1953), 6 & 10:35 p.m., AMC. Turner Classic Movies recently boasted that it was showing every great western except "Shane." So AMC steps in. Alan Ladd plays the quiet drifter who is wedged into a battle between ranchers and homesteaders.
"My Wife and Kids," 7 p.m., ABC. Michael hesitantly gives his daughter driving lessons.
"The Bernie Mac Show," 8 p.m., Fox. This episode pretends there has been a long-running feud between Bernie and Chris Rock. That peaks when both are on Jay Leno's show.
"Star Search," 8 p.m., CBS. Here is another part of CBS' temporary shift. To make room for "Survivor," this show runs an hour later than usual.
"Dawson's Creek," 9 p.m., WB. This series pauses to rerun its terrific pilot film. James Van Der Beek played a teenager obsessed with filmmaking; he also had a platonic, sleepover relationship with his beautiful friend (Katie Holmes).
"Domestic Violence" conclusion, 9 p.m. to midnight, PBS. This wraps up Frederick Wiseman's two-night film, capturing battered women's stories in courtrooms and shelters.
"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," 9 p.m., CBS. One more result of the temporary CBS shift. This is a transplanted rerun in which Grissom probes the death of a teen who was stabbed and was run over by a taxi.
