Fox brings David Kelley's slender, angst-ridden young lawyer back for a third season, which might include a wedding -- but not necessarily hers. On "Ally McBeal," Monday at 9, she has dinner with Ling and helps Fish try to save a client's daughter's marriage.
At 8 p.m., Fox introduces "Time of Your Life," starring "Party of Five's" Jennifer Love Hewitt. She plays Sarah Merrin, 20, who goes to New York City to search for her biological father, then decides to stay and take a job -- which, to her surprise, requires an impromptu karaoke performance.
The ensemble cast includes Johnathon Schaech, Diego Serrano, Jennifer Garner, Pauley Perrette and Gina Ravera. Rosie O'Donnell has a cameo in the debut.
Also back: "Outdoors Maryland" (Thursday at 8), MPT's environmental magazine, beginning its 11th season with a visit to Assateague Island.
THE SOUL COLLECTOR
Sunday at 9 on CBS
Bruce Greenwood plays a spirit who is banished to Earth in human form for one month, as punishment for neglecting his soul-collecting duties, and is surprised to find that matters of the heart are more complicated than he expected. Melissa Gilbert plays a widowed mother trying to save her ranch. At first she employs him, then falls in love with him, causing him to question whether he belongs in Heaven or on Earth. Ossie Davis also stars.
