Series

Everybody Loves Raymond (8:30 p.m., CBS) repeats last season's finale, a flashback to what went wrong with Robert's marriage. The new reality series Hospital (9 p.m., Discovery Channel) observes the daily drama at Duke University Medical Center. Not to be confused with "Hopkins 24/7," "Code Blue: New Orleans," "Trauma: Life in the ER" or "Maternity Ward." Snapping at the heels of "Crocodile Hunter," we have the new series Shark Gordon (10 p.m., Animal Planet), in which intrepid Aussie Ian "Shark" Gordon gets insanely close to the eating machines of death.
