Series

Bruce Willis reunites with "The Whole Nine Yards" costar Matthew Perry for a
three-episode stint on Friends (8 p.m., NBC). Willis plays the
overprotective father of Ross' college-age girlfriend, but he's also on board as
potential romance material for Rachel. On Frasier (9 p.m., NBC), the doc
dallies with a stripper he hired for Donny's bachelor party. Another episode airs
at 9:30; it's a rerun of the one where Frasier's opera pals think Martin is gay.
Former "Picket Fences" star Kathy Baker is back working for David E. Kelley again in a
guest role on Chicago Hope (9 p.m., CBS); she plays a woman who awakens from a 15-year coma. Carter is haunted by his attack and Greene's father takes a turn for the worse on ER (10 p.m., NBC).

Specials

Do you see dead people? You will if you watch Ghosts: The Best Evidence Caught on Tape (8 p.m., Fox). Oh wait, that's just Bruce Willis on "Friends."
