HOTTEST SISTER ACT
Friends (NBC, Oct. 30, 8 p.m. ET) Christina Applegate does another guest-star turn as Rachel’s sister Amy, who agrees to mind baby Emma for a while. Uh-oh. Wasn’t Applegate in Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead?

THE O.C. (FOX, Oct. 29, 9 p.m. ET) The summer hit has its first new episode in six weeks, with outsider Ryan trying to enroll in school so he can study (or not) with the rich kids. Meanwhile Marissa’s recovering from an overdose, and her mother warns Ryan to stay away.
SUREST SIGN OF FALL
