CSI (CBS; Thursday, May 16, 8 p.m.) Grissom (William Peterson) and the CSI team investigate a tough case involving a murdered woman found in a shopping cart in the streets of Las Vegas.

Survivor: Marquesas (CBS; Sunday, May 19, 7 p.m.) And the winner is: The skinny chick from Utah! (Bold guess arrived at by minutes of intensive research via crackpot websites loaded with hot pix of Nelly, Nerisha, Nacho, Mariah or whatever her name is.)

The X-Files (Fox; Sunday, May 19, 7 p.m.) In the two-hour series finale, long-lost Mulder (David Duchovny) returns to face a military tribunal to prove the existence of extraterrestrial life, save the X-Files and hand out refunds for Evolution.

King of Queens (CBS; Monday, May 20, 7 p.m.) Fat ‘n’ paranoid husband Doug (Kevin James) is convinced that his dentist wants some rinse-and-spit action with Carrie (Leah Remini). And probably sex, too.

Everybody Loves Raymond (CBS; Monday, May 20, 8 p.m.) Once again, Debra (Patricia Heaton) doesn’t want to have sex with Ray (Ray Romano), who dejectedly winds up getting some rinse-and-spit action from Doug’s dentist. And a tartar-scrape, too.

Angel (The WB; Monday, May 20, 8 p.m.) Blissfully dumb Angel (David Boreanaz) still doesn’t know that son Connor (Vincent Kartheiser) is going to stake him, even when he wanders around the hotel all day listening to the Doors’ “The End.”

Gilmore Girls (The WB; Tuesday, May 21, 7 p.m.) Rory (Alexis Bledel) runs for school office, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) gets cozy with Rory’s dad, and all seems fine until Ed and the population of Stuckeyville storm into town and start a bloodbath showdown with Stars Hollow for the coveted “Cute ‘n’ Quirky Capitol of the USA” title.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (UPN; Tuesday, May 21, 7 p.m.) Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) battles an evil sorceress to prevent any more lesbians from getting killed—Sunnydale’s a small town, and the Buffster’s options are kinda running low here.

24 (Fox; Tuesday, May 21, 8 p.m.) As Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) closes in on the assassins, the most perilous obstacle he’s faced all day suddenly arises: Daylight Savings Time!

Smallville (The WB; Tuesday, May 21, 8 p.m.) Lex’s (Michael Rosenbaum) dad is shutting down the LuthorCorp plant! Clark’s (Tom Welling) pals are splitting town! Worse yet, crap-rockers Remy Zero show up and play! Oh the humanity!
