Series

The new comedy-drama Opposite Sex (8 p.m., Fox) premieres (although it feels like it's been on forever). Three teenage boys become the first males admitted to an exclusive girls prep school. Hoo boy! The show almost writes itself! And cancels itself, too. Robert returns to work but quits after freezing in a dangerous situation on a rerun of Everybody Loves Raymond (9 p.m., CBS). On a rerun of Roswell (9 p.m., WB), Max and Isabel want to tell their adoptive mother about their alien origin, but Michael is paranoid, as usual.
