Series

In case you missed it Sunday, the first episode of Survivor: The Australian Outback (8 p.m., CBS) has an almost instant replay. On a rerun of The West Wing (9 p.m., NBC), Ainsley Hayes is not welcomed with open arms on her first day of work. Temptation Island (9 p.m., Fox) is not a rerun, but everything that happens feels like it has happened before. On Once & Again (10 p.m., ABC), the kids -- Eli, Grace and Jessie -- are not all right. In fact, they're quite messed up.

Specials

The TV movie One Kill (9 p.m., CBS) stars Anne Heche, Sam Shepard and Eric Stoltz in the true story of a decorated female Marine charged with first-degree murder in the death of an abusive officer (originally made for cable).
