On Freaks and Geeks (8 p.m., NBC), Sam tries to change his image and Lindsay's parents are devastated when they read her diary. Ray doesn't go to church, so his daughter draws a picture of him burning in Hell on Everybody Loves Raymond (9 p.m., CBS). Remember the WB series "Zoe, Duncan, Jack and Jane"? Didn't think so. But the WB is optimistic. It's relaunching the comedy, except it's now just called Zoe (9:30 p.m., WB). The American Experience (check local listings, PBS) presents "Nixon's China Game," which chronicles the delicate behind-the-scenes maneuverings that led to Richard Nixon's historic 1972 visit to the People's Republic of China. Lily begins divorce proceedings against Jake and Rick's ex-wife has a fling herself on Once and Again (10 p.m., ABC).
