On Friends (8 p.m., NBC), Joey gets a new roommate -- supermodel Elle Macpherson. Nicole tries to strong-arm Brooke's opponents for homecoming queen into withdrawing on Popular (8 p.m., WB). The Who Wants to be a Millionaire (8:30 p.m., ABC) juggernaut continues. NBC has pulled Jesse off the schedule and scheduled a Friends rerun (8:30 p.m., NBC) to go up against "Millionaire," while Fox has another episode of its sleazy "Millionaire" rip-off, Greed (8 p.m., Fox). Mystery! (check local times, PBS) introduces a new sleuth, stylish 1920s divorcie Adela Bradley, in "The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries: Speedy Death." Oh, yeah -- and Mrs. Bradley is played by Diana Rigg. Frasier (9 p.m., NBC) finally does a spoof of PBS's "Antiques Roadshow" (what took them so long?). An appraisal of a family heirloom suggests that the Cranes may have royal ancestry. On ER (10 p.m., NBC), Weaver discovers the truth about Dr. Lawrence, and Jeannie makes a surprising announcement. Best buds Matt Damon and Ben Affleck beat the crap out of each other on Celebrity Deathmatch (10 p.m., MTV).
