Bliss hits Stuckeyville on NBC’s “Ed” as the season concludes Friday with Ed and Carol getting married in a circus-themed setting. Ed Stevens (played by Tom Cavanagh), a former hotshot New York lawyer who now owns a bowling alley, and Carol Vessey (Julie Bowen), the hometown girl he rediscovered, have been flirting for most of four seasons. Officially, “Ed’s” renewal will not be certain until schedules are set in May. That should leave plenty of time for a honeymoon.
Directors’ Salute

100 `Angels’
“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is history, but popular spinoff “Angel,” starring David Boreanaz and produced by Joss Whedon, is going strong on The WB. The show, whose motto is “Live Fast. Die Never,” will air its 100th episode Wednesday evening. To spice things up, actress Charisma Carpenter returns as Cordelia Chase, last seen at the end of last season. She awakens from a coma and is shocked to find that Angel has fallen in with the vampires. She works to get him back on the side of the angels.
