A lot's happening tonight, including the conclusion of the "Knots Landing" reunion miniseries, a Barbara Walters interview with Marcia Clark and the first half of a two-part "Homicide: Life on the Street" season finale. "Family Matters" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Tonight's the last night for Jaleel White as Urkel -- but only on ABC, where he goes out with a 3-D blast. Next season, Urkel and "Family Matters" resurface, in the same time slot, on CBS -- part of that network's plan to build its own kid-friendly "T.G.I.F." lineup. ABC.
"Knots Landing: Back to the Cul-de-Sac" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Part 2 of 2. Who would have thought it? Sumner (William Devane) actually does something nice in this concluding installment. Joan Van Ark, Kevin Dobson, Michelle Phillips, Ted Shackelford and Michele Lee are all on hand -- as is Donna Mills, whose character goes down a typically mercenary Abby Road. CBS.
"Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" (9 p.m.-9: 30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- In addition to the week's unavoidable TV gimmick, tonight's "Sabrina" presents the young witch (Melissa Joan Hart) as she gets a little too caught up in a school reenactment of the Salem witch trials. ABC.
"Dateline NBC" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- One of the "Dateline" reports tonight is an updated focus on obsessive compulsive disorder -- this time with TV personality Marc Summers allowing cameras in to record his private behavior before and after addressing the problem. Sara James reports. NBC.
"20/20" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- In her first TV interview since the O.J. Simpson case, Marcia Clark sits down with Barbara Walters for a high-profile "20/20." ABC.
"Homicide: Life on the Street" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Part 1 of 2. This is the season finale, but only the first half; it concludes next week, with former regular Isabella Hofmann, as Russert, sticking around to help solve what looks like another suicide in the "Homicide" family. NBC.
"Absolutely Fabulous" (7 p.m.-9 p.m., COMEDY) -- Fans of "Ab Fab" will want to take note, and perhaps stack up blank videotapes. Tonight Comedy Central is showing a rerun of this 1996 telemovie comedy, starring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, followed by 10 episodes of the show that inspired it.
