"Everybody Loves Raymond" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Ray and his dad end up in the same poker game. Bad move, since the old man turns out to be quite a poker player and ends up with most of his son's money. CBS.

"King Kong Lives" (6 p.m.-8 p.m., Showtime) -- Turns out the big guy didn't die after all; he's been kept alive all this time by the world's largest artificial heart. Linda Hamilton, in a role she'd no doubt like to forget, is the plucky scientist who's determined that Kong not only survive, but be returned to his island lair. The Army, unfortunately, has other plans. Bad-movie fans, rejoice over this one.
