Series

The new drama series Mysterious Ways (8 p.m., NBC) is a cross between "The X-Files" and "Touched by an Angel." Adrian Pasdar plays an anthropologist who believes in miracles; he's paired with skeptical scientist Rae Dawn Chong. In an unusual move, the series airs on NBC for six weeks, then moves to the spiritually minded PAX TV, home of shows such as "It's a Miracle" and "Angels Among Us." Everybody Loves Raymond (9 p.m., CBS) reruns the one that flashes back to Robert's disastrous marriage. Younger women give Lily and Grace fits on a rerun of Once and Again (10 p.m., ABC).
