Series

The river is flooding, the fish aren't biting and the tribe is starving; it's just another day on Survivor: The Australian Outback (8 p.m., CBS). Will & Grace (9 p.m., NBC) reruns the hour-long flashback to the Thanksgiving when Will came out to fiancée Grace. Mystery! (9 p.m., PBS, check local listings) premieres the first of three new installments of "Second Sight," a British detective series starring Clive Owen as a cop who's slowly going blind. On a rerun of CSI (9 p.m., CBS), two girls are the only survivors of a family massacre; the case has more twists than a cheese Danish. George Clooney gives up on the movies and comes back to ER (10 p.m., NBC). Well, not really; it's a rerun of the episode where Doug Ross comes out of his self-destructive spin long enough to save a boy trapped in a clogged culvert that's about to flood.
