TODAY'S TV

April 02, 1994|By David Bianculli | David Bianculli,Special to The Sun

This is a good time to remind everyone that tomorrow is Charles Kuralt's farewell appearance on the CBS "Sunday Morning" show. In fact, it's a great time, since so little of today's TV is worth mentioning. Thanks for all the poetry, Mr. Kuralt. Watching you walk away from TV is like watching an endangered species slide into extinction. Sigh.

* "Money Made Easy" (12:30-1 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- This week and next, ABC presents a two-part show about money for kids. This first installment covers the history of money -- and perhaps it's only accidental that one of its producer-directors is a guy named Larry Price. ABC.

* "Orioles '94: Great Expectations" (8-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2): With Opening Day on Monday, this program takes a look at the coming season.

* "NCAA basketball tournament" (5:30 p.m.-conclusion, WBAL, Channel 11) -- The Final Four are here, and that number will be halved by the end of the night, once these doubleheader games are concluded (Arkansas-Arizona first, followed by Duke-Florida). What I want to know is, why do they call it "March Madness" when the most important games are played in April? CBS.

* "Winnetka Road" (10-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Meg Tilly had almost nothing to do two weeks ago, but what little she did get to do made her character more mysterious and attention-getting than ever. Last week the show was pre-empted by figure skating, so it's got to start from first gear again tonight -- hopefully, with more Tilly than before. NBC.

* "Rock 'n' Jock Softball Challenge V" (1-2 p.m., MTV) -- This fifth annual charity softball game, in which pro baseball players compete on the same field as music, movie and TV stars, was taped in January, which, ironically, makes it more newsworthy than if it were held last week. Why? Because one of the pro players is Philadelphia Phillies first baseman John Kruk, seen in action here before he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Along with Salt-N-Pepa, Darren Daulton, Mike Mills and Dean Cain of "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman."

* "Point of No Return" (8-10 p.m., HBO) -- Bridget Fonda is a terrific actress, and does some clever and touching work here, but technology overshadows humanity in this American remake of "La Femme Nikita," which is a much better and more intense thriller.

* "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" (9:30-10 p.m., Nickelodeon) -- Need more twin-sister plots, even after a double dose of "Sister, Sister" yesterday? Well, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" co-star Tatyana Ali guest stars in tonight's "Are You Afraid of the Dark?," and I'm afraid that she, too, plays twins.
