Series

On Survivor: The Australian Outback (8 p.m., CBS), will the hapless Ogakor tribe stop bickering long enough to find some food? Don't bet on it. On another 40-minute Friends (8 p.m., NBC), Joey becomes an ordained minister online so he can perform Monica and Chandler's wedding ceremony. Before Inspector Morse tackles his last case, let us pause to remember the prickly sleuth with The Last Morse (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings), followed by the two-hour series finale Inspector Morse: The Remorseful Day (9 p.m., PBS, check local listings), in which Morse (John Thaw) probes the murder of an acquaintance, even though he's not feeling too good himself. On a supersized Will & Grace (8:40 p.m., NBC), Grace discovers that Will's father (Sydney Pollack) is having an affair. On CSI (9 p.m., CBS), Grissom and Catherine are on the case when a dead body in a swimming pool leads to the disappearance of a veteran showgirl. Just Shoot Me (9:20 p.m., NBC) gets supersized, too; Nina has a new admirer, a 13-year-old boy (Samm Levine, from "Freaks and Geeks") who wants to take her to his bar mitzvah. Train wreck victims flood the hospital on ER (10 p.m., NBC).
