Kathy Baker ("Picket Fences") is back working for David E. Kelley when she guests on Boston Public (8 p.m., Fox). On 7th Heaven (8 p.m., WB), Annie can't hold her jealousy in check when Eric counsels a flirtatious church member. Doug, Carrie and Arthur have an awkward visit with Doug's parents during an airport layover on The King of Queens (8 p.m., CBS). Ally McBeal (9 p.m., Fox) has an all-star "Ally turns 30" episode featuring Sting as himself. It seems Der Stingle is being sued by a husband (Paul Reubens) whose wife (Cheri Oteri) can't stop thinking about the dreamy former Police frontman. Sting and Robert Downey Jr. sing Ally a birthday duet, which may well end up being Downey's swan song. On Everybody Loves Raymond (9 p.m., CBS), Marie brings Robert's two ex-girlfriends together, so he can see what he could have had.


It's Bruce Willis against an asteroid in the 1998 disaster flick Armageddon (8 p.m., ABC), which is having its network TV premiere. Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler and Billy Bob Thornton co-star.


NBA playoffs:
Spurs at Timberwolves, Game 4 (TNT, time TBA)
