Series

The King of Queens (8:30 p.m., CBS) reruns the one where the Heffernans have a disastrous evening with Ray and Debra Barone. Meanwhile, on a rerun of Everybody Loves Raymond (9 p.m., CBS), Ray hires his annoying cousin to help him on a book project. City Confidential (9 p.m., A&E) travels to Greenwood, Miss., to probe the mysterious death there of bluesman Robert Johnson. The new series 20 to 1 (10 p.m., VH1) is yet another gimmicky VH1 countdown show (as if "The List" wasn't enough), picking the top 20 in categories that don't have much to do with music. This week: The top 20 musicians who've had brushes with the law.
