TODAY'S TV

June 03, 1994|By David Bianculli | David Bianculli,Special to The Sun

Take the night off. For the most part, TV has.

* "Fall From Grace" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Part 2 of 2. Plans for the Normandy invasion are developed, hidden and eagerly sought in the conclusion of this imported miniseries, which makes the plans for D-Day seem almost as important as whether an Allied agent (Tara Fitzgerald) will be faithful to a fellow agent (Gary Cole), and whether he, in turn, will fall for the advances of another fellow agent (Patsy Kensit). In the end, the Allies conquer the Germans, and love conquers all. Michael York plays a sinister Nazi with more subtlety than expected. CBS.

* "The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr." (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- In a close approximation of the plot of "Unforgiven," Brisco (Bruce Campbell) is hired by a group of BTC women to track down some men who did them wrong. Fox repeat.

* "The X-Files" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- One of this show's several dramatizations of mind-swapping, or soul-swapping, has a friend of Scully's (Christopher Allport) acting differently after killing a bank robber -- acting, more and more, like the bank robber himself. If you've yet to sample "X-Files," this episode gives a strong feel of its creepy flavor. Fox repeat.

Cable

* "Larry King Live" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., CNN) -- I scream, you scream, we all scream for tonight's guests: Larry King is to interview ice cream moguls Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield. Quiet! Order in the quart!

* "Tales From the Crypt" (9:30 p.m.-10 p.m., HBO) -- This particular episode of "Tales From the Crypt" made such good use of Don Rickles, it suggested the old insult king was primed and ready for a new TV series. Then he got one in "Daddy Dearest," which turned Mr. Rickles' latest comeback into yet another goaway.

* "The Babysitter" (10:35 p.m.-12:35 a.m., TBS) -- This 1980 made-for-TV movie is strikingly similar to "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle": A beautiful young woman shows up to help a family in need, then begins seducing some family members and terrorizing others, all in the need for some thirst for revenge. The woman, in this case, is Stephanie Zimbalist.

* "Loco Slam" (midnight-12:30 a.m., HBO) -- Dennis Miller is gone again, and this new Latino stand-up comedy series temporarily takes its place.
