Survivor: All-Stars (7 p.m., Ch. 2): Sue Hawk throws a hissy fit and a sixth person is voted out.

Friends (7 p.m., Ch. 5): When the cast agreed to return for a 10th season — such a sacrifice, given that each makes $1 million per episode — they also agreed to make only 18 episodes. Which explains why we're beginning six weeks of reruns. NBC is trying to hype it as a "viewers' choice" special, with on-line voting picking the top six episodes of all time. But what we're getting on the network is the same old episodes that air twice a day on KJZZ-Ch. 14 and other stations around the country.

Tru Calling (7 and 8 p.m., Ch. 13): The show's very good pilot episode is repeated, followed by a second repeat in which Tru looks like a murderer.

Mad Mad House (7 and 9 p.m., Sci Fi), Scare Tactics (8 and 10 p.m., Sci Fi) and Tripping the Rift (8:30 and 10:30 p.m., Sci Fi): See accompanying story.

The True Story of Hidalgo (7 p.m., History): Well, it's Frank Hopkins' version of the truth, anyway. Hopkins is the real-life cowboy played by Viggo Mortensen in the new movie "Hidalgo," but whether his autobiographical tale of winning that big race in the Sahara is true or not we'll never know for sure.

Will & Grace (7:30 p.m., Ch. 5): Karen and Jack each have romantic problems.

CSI (8 p.m., Ch. 2): A severed head is found in a small town. (Repeat)

The Apprentice (8 p.m., Ch. 5): The two teams each select an aspiring artist and compete to sell his/her work at a gallery reception.

Without a Trace (9 p.m., Ch. 2): A case Jack wasn't able to solved 12 years earlier seems to have resurfaced. (Repeat)

Princess Diana: The Secret Tapes (9 p.m., Ch. 5): Not to make light of tragedy, but the big news here is — Princess Diana is still dead. NBC is pre-empting "ER" this week and next for a two-week "documentary" (and I use that term loosely) that includes Diana's voice on tapes she "secretly" made for biographer/gossip monger Andrew Morton.
