Baltimore looks pretty good in a Hollywood film that gets a repeat screening tonight, while political pundits face off on PBS over the question of curbing immigration.

* "He Said, She Said" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- The romantic comedy had its world premiere at the Senator Theater in Baltimore in February 1991, and co-star Kevin Bacon was in attendance. Remember? The film was made here, with many locals as extras. Mr. Bacon stars as a Sun reporter and Elizabeth Perkins is his writing rival, with whom he becomes romantically involved between editions, and the story is told twice from their respective viewpoints. Trivia note: The part was Mr. Bacon's second performed in Baltimore, for he also appeared in Barry Levinson's "Diner" (1982).

* "Firing Line Debate" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., MPT, Channels 22, 67) -- Should the United States invoke a moratorium on immigration? In this taped special from Bard College, William F. Buckley heads a panel that says yes, and former New York Mayor Ed Koch heads a team that argues no. Michael Kinsley of "Crossfire" is the moderator. PBS.

* "The X-Files" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Bad enough that Mulder (David Duchovny) has all those distracting memories of his sister's abduction by aliens. In this repeat, he is falling romantically for one of the suspects (Perrey Reeves) as he investigates three mysterious murders. Fox.

* "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper" (9:30 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Frank Robinson, former Orioles manager and Hall of Fame player, does a cameo as himself, along with Albert Belle of the Cleveland Indians. In the repeat episode, Mark (Mark Curry) is trying to field a competitive all-girl team and conspires to dress Tyler(Marquiae Wilson) as a girl. ABC.

* "Michael Feinstein: Sing a Song of Hollywood" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., American Movie Classics) -- Liza Minnelli is Mr. Feinstein's first guest on a new two-part special series celebrating the Hollywood movie. Part two is scheduled to be shown next Friday.

* "Great Cities of the Ancient World: Rome and Pompeii" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., the Learning Channel) -- Modern scholars are using computers to re-create the contours of the legendary dwelling places, including in Pompeii, the city buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

* "Network Earth Undercover" (8:05 p.m.-9 p.m., TBS) -- A documentary report looks into the proliferation of wilderness camps, in which troubled young people are said to learn both self-reliance and cooperation. But tragic deaths have also occurred in some camps.
