Everybody Loves Raymond (8:30 p.m., CBS) reruns the one in which Robert's sexual orientation is in question. On Survivor (9 p.m., CBS), Gervase compares women to cows. Also, CBS's extra-large modesty dot makes its first appearance, superimposed on -- say it with me now -- Richard's big white ass. MTV jumps on the reality-game-show craze with Fear (10 p.m., MTV), in which six contestants have to spend a weekend in an abandoned prison that just might be haunted. Oh, yeah -- they're armed only with video cameras and headsets. Omigod! Did you hear something? Ahhhhhhhhhh!
