Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke briefly gets a national platform to talk about drug policy, and CBS tries a schedule change to rouse new interest in "Northern Exposure."

* "Notes For My Daughter" (4 p.m.-5 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Kate Burton (daughter of actor Richard Burton) stars in this "Afterschool Special" as a mother whose diagnosis of breast cancer deeply affects her 13-year-old daughter (Grace Johnston). ABC.

* "Northern Exposure" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Sigh. Don't you miss all those fiery moments between O'Connell and Fleischman (Janine Turner and the departed Rob Morrow)? Using a one-time-only earlier scheduling, the network keeps trying to interest viewers in the bland new doctor and his wife (Paul Provenza and Teri Polo), as Michelle gains acceptance for her bowling. CBS.

* "Def Comedy Jam: Prime Time" (8:30 p.m.-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- If you ever caught this show featuring black comics on HBO, you know it was much more explicit than the similarly transplanted "Dream On" ever dreamed of being. How can it air on network TV? By washing out those mouths with lots of soap. Fox.

* "Seinfeld" (9 p.m.-9:30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Jerry hires an exterminator to rid his apartment of fleas, and Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) unwisely loans Jerry's parents (Barney Martin and Liz Sheridan) a hotel room being provided by a potential employer. NBC.

* "Mystery!" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., MPT, Channels 22, 67) -- Chief Detective Inspector Roderick Alleyn (Patrick Malahide) leaves his suave surroundings in "Death at the Bar." He probes a poisoning in a picturesque fishing village in the final episode of the series. PBS.

* "America's War on Drugs: Searching for Solutions" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., Channel 2) -- Baltimore Mayor Schmoke is interviewed on his views suggesting study of decriminalizing drugs. The special also examines the effects of statutes in England and the Netherlands providing limited legalization of marijuana and heroin. ABC.

* "Mozart's 'Requiem' from Sarajevo" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., A&E) -- After the legendary Sarajevo Bibliotheque library was destroyed by fighting, conductor Zubin Mehta, tenor Jose Carreras and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Sarajevo performed this memorial concert there in 1994.
