On The Weekend Watch:
THE MAGAZINE RACK -- In the mid-summer rerun desert, a trio of ABC news shows offer some interesting fresh fare. Tonight, for example, an hour-long "Peter Jennings Reporting" special (at 8, Channel 13) takes a look at the Dance Theatre of Harlem. In addition to its focus on founder Arthur Mitchell, the show also addresses the broader question that can be applied to many fine arts organi-zations: How to get the money to survive? Also tonight (at 10), "Primetime Live" includes the nearby environs of Washington in a report on lead contamination of soil. And on Friday's edition of "20/20" (10 p.m.), the scheduled subject is the island nation of Cuba which, after decades of isolation, now seeks a rebirth of the tourism that once made it a popular destination for vacationing Americans.
THE MOVIE MARQUEE -- Arguably the best movie musical ever, the Oscar-winning "An American in Paris" -- what could be better than Gershwin's music, Gene Kelly's dancing and Leslie Caron's pretty pout? -- gets a showing at 10 tonight on Maryland Public Television (channels 22 and 67). Arguably the best science fiction movie ever, the Stanley Kubrick/Arthur C. Clarke collaboration "2001: A Space Odyssey," is being shown at 8 p.m. Friday on cable's TNT service. And a final film of small-screen note is "Elvis and Me," a two-parter based on Priscilla Presley's story at 9 p.m. Sunday and Monday on ABC (Channel 13). Star Dale Midkiff is a native of Maryland.
