Critic's corner

* That running-for-president thing didn't work out, but at least he got a sitcom gig out of it. Rev. Al Sharpton guest stars as himself on "Girlfriends," tonight at 9 on Channel 38.

* Emmy voters finally got around to seeing it. Now it's your chance. HBO2 is reairing the first episode of the first season of "The Sopranos," tonight at 9.

* Father and daughter are still loudly locking horns on "Listen Up," at 8:30 on Channel 4. Almost makes you long for the days of "Bob Patterson." Almost.

* Florence Henderson hosts the "Mrs. America Pageant," tonight at 9 on Channel 68. It's probably the only beauty pageant that the husbands of America haven't penciled into their calendars.
