Series

The reality series Lost (8 p.m., NBC) wraps up with the contestants making their way to New York City. Jim Belushi and Courtney Thorne-Smith star in the new sitcom According to Jim (8:30 p.m., ABC). Jim is a clueless husband and father of three. On CBS, this one's called "Everybody Loves Raymond." Drew gets out of the mental institution and a song and dance number ensues on The Drew Carey Show (9 p.m., ABC). The West Wing (9 p.m., NBC) has a new episode, but it's not the season opener (that airs next week). This one is Aaron Sorkin's take on the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, and is rumored to be prefaced by members of the cast breaking character to directly address viewers.
