This is a week full of Emmy-nominated episodes -- if you missed them first time around, now's your chance to catch up as the networks offer their best. WTTG was busy with a Redskins game last Saturday, so it airs the Fox line-up that would have run -- "Werewolf," "New Adventures of Beans Baxter," "Down and Out in Beverly Hills" and "Karen's Song" -- on Monday. And on Saturday, Channel 5 telecasts another Redskins game, this time with the L.A. Rams. SUNDAY FAMILY TIES at 8 on NBC
UNDER SIEGE at 9 on NBC
BLIND JUSTICE at 9 on CBS
MASTERPIECE THEATRE at 9 on 26 Tune in at 8 for NBC's repeat of the special one-hour episode of "Family Ties" featuring Michael J. Fox as a deeply depressed Alex who questions his own existence after the death of a friend. The Emmy-nominated episode -- for directing and writing and technical direction -- is unlike other "Family Ties" presentations. CBS repeats "Blind Justice" at 9, based on true events. Tim Matheson plays a photographer accused of committing rapes and robberies; Mimi Kuzyk is his wife, who is at first supportive, then suspicious. Tom Atkins appears as a cop determined to prove him guilty, and Lisa Eichhorn and Philip Charles MacKenzie are his defense attornies. Another repeat at 9 is NBC's "Under Siege" co-written by Bob Woodward and Chris Williams. Hal Holbrook plays the President and Peter Strauss his FBI director, who wrangle over how to respoind to large-scale, foreign-inspired acts of terrorism at home. Co-starring are E.G. Marshall, Victoria Tennant, George Grizzard and Paul Winfield. At the same time, WETA offers the first in a series of four plays adapted from short stories by leading authors, all about love. Tonight's story focuses on a lonely spinster (Joan Plowright) working as a waitress in a seedy boarding house. She agrees to pose as the wife of a colleague (Alex McCowen) so they can get jobs at a deluxe country hotel as head waiter and waitress. But her growing obsession with the son they've "invented" leads to tragedy. And at 11, WHMM airs an hour-long profile of alleged Irish Republican Army leader Martin McGuinness and hard-line loyalist Gregory Campbell that was withdrawn by the BBC when it was first scheduled to air two years ago. This time it includes an update. Guests: Tess Harper, Foster Brooks and Diane Baker on "Murder, She Wrote" (8 on CBS).

GREAT PERFORMANCES at 9 on PBS
CBS offers two stories tonight on its Summer Playhouse series. The first is "Sirens," starring Dinah Manoff and Loretta DeVine as an unorthodox pair of female cops whose routine shift turns zany when a psychic (Joyce Van Patten) appears to tell them she was dreamed that one of them would be killed. Unfortunately, she is also the mother of one of the women. In the second half, Wendy Crewson stars with Dennis Boutsikaris as a pair striving to put on a children's television puppet show. The show, "In the Lion's Den," follows Crewson as she tries to handle the puppeteer's mercurial moods. As they have all summer, Tim Reid and Daphne Maxwell Reid host, and viewers may call two 900 telephone numbers to indicate whether they liked or disliked the shows. (Calls are 50 cents each.)
