"Friends" (7 p.m.) and "ER" (9 p.m.), NBC. After weeks of reruns, NBC offers a promising sign: The entire night has new episodes. That starts when "Friends" tries something rare — a possible romance for Phoebe. Hank Azaria (who’s been the dog-walker on "Mad About You" and Moe and Apu on "The Simpsons") guest stars. He plays a scientist who returns after years in Russia, to woo Phoebe. The night ends with a new "ER." Jim Belushi plays an accident victim and Chris Sarandon is a doctor.

"The Money Train," 7 p.m., Fox. In the cowboy days, lawmen protected stagecoaches filled with loot. Now it’s a subway train and Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson star as transit cops. There’s a lot of action, but few people say this 1995 film matched the stars’ previous work in "White Men Can’t Jump."

"The Weber Show," 7:30 p.m., NBC. Paula Marshall ("Cupid," "Snoops") was terrific in an episode that introduced her as Jack’s gay friend. Tonight he fumes when she’s attracted to his former girlfriend, Melissa (Amy Pietz).

"Will and Grace," 8 p.m., NBC. As Joe and Larry have their commitment ceremony, the other characters face trouble.

"Live From Lincoln Center," 8 p.m., PBS. Renee Fleming, sometimes considered the next big thing among operatic sopranos, performs in the intimate setting of the center’s penthouse.

"Just Shoot Me," 8:30 p.m., NBC. The fragile Finch is in love with a female boxer.
