>What do you do when you're an old TV series whose biggest stars (Mia Farrow and Ryan O'Neal) have gotten too big for a TV movie reunion? When you're 1977's Murder in Peyton Place (TBS, Mon., April 23, 2:05 A.M. ET), you kill off their characters and bring back everyone else (Ed Nelson, Dorothy Malone, Tim O'Connor) to look into their deaths. Peyton Place was Dallas's daddy, Dynasty's ancestor, the first and arguably the most popular nighttime soap: For most of its run, it aired twice a week and, at one point in 1965, the show actually appeared three evenings a week.
