Ever wonder where you've seen "Suddenly Susan" before?"Diagnosis Murder" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Peggy Fleming, Tai Babilonia and Randy Gardner are among the familiar faces as a figure skater stages an attack on herself, then kills her accomplice when he gets greedy. CBS."Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" (8 p.m.-9 p.m.) and "Xena: Warrior Princess" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- A new season of myth and mirth opens as Herc finds himself stranded a desert island populated by huge, mean worms, and Xena has a pleasant reunion with her son, who has sworn to kill her. And by the way, don't get upset with me if the writers here play fast and loose with their mythology; I don't write these things, I just write about them.

"Suddenly Susan" is so totally Mary it makes you want to scream. But scream what?

Nobody wants to rip a hit -- especially one with a star who has enough of a buzz about her to land on the covers of Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly on the eve of the new fall season.
