Blades of Glory

If there's one film that defines lowbrow comedy, 1980s-style, it's this 1980 romp directed and co-written by Harold Ramis. Set in a country club, it stars some of the era's best comic actors, including Rodney Dangerfield as the club's newest member, a developer long on cash and short on couth. (6 p.m., AMC)
BLADES OF GLORY — Whatever it takes, right? Will Ferrell and Jon Heder star as Chazz and Jimmy, two former skaters who were banned from singles competition. In order to get back in the game, they partner up to compete in the pairs category. (9 p.m., TBS)
MIAMI MEDICAL — The personal lives of several victims of a boating accident cause chaos for the team, while Dr. Zambrano (Lana Parilla) winds up in a tight spot after Dr. Deleo's (Mike Vogel) brother, Rick (guest star Bailey Chase), arrives at the hospital. (10 p.m., CBS)
PARTY DOWN — While catering a party for a college gridiron golden boy (guest star Aaron Hill), who unexpectedly slips in the draft, Casey and Henry (Lizzy Caplan and Adam Scott) become entangled in the secret lives of celebrity sports figures. Meanwhile, Lydia (Megan Mullally) makes a play for the quarterback's single dad. (10 p.m., Starz)
THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY — Matt Damon and Jude Law earned acclaim for their work in this Hitchcockian 1999 drama. Damon plays the title character, a poor boy mistaken by a tycoon (James Rebhorn) for a college friend of his playboy son, Dickie (Law). Dad offers Ripley $1,000 to bring the young wastrel home from Europe. Instead, he disposes of him and assumes his identity
