Today's TV

September 19, 1995|By Steve McKerrow | Steve McKerrow,SUN STAFF

Three new series -- including Steven Bochco's latest -- two original made-for-TV movies and season premieres of "Roseanne," "Wings," "NewsRadio" and "Frasier" -- make a complicated evening to schedule.

"Roseanne" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) The baby's on the way in this season premiere, which also brings back Lecy Goranson as the oldest Conner daughter, Becky. She and Darlene (Sara Gilbert) disagree on plans for the baby shower. ABC.

* "Divas" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) This new movie takes a microscope to the pop music scene, studying the lives of members of an all-female rhythm-and-blues Seattle band as they try to break into recording. Fatima Lowe, Lisa Carson and Tammy Townsend are among the stars. Fox.

* "Hudson Street" (8:30 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) Tony Danza ("Who's the Boss," "Taxi") returns to series television after recovering from a serious skiing accident. He plays a New Jersey police detective -- named Tony, of course -- who is a divorced single father about to re-enter the dating scene. Lori Loughlin ("Full House") is the newspaper reporter who agrees to be his blind date. ABC.

* "Her Deadly Rival" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) Harry Hamlin and Annie Potts star in a new based-on-truth thriller movie. He plays a happily married man whose life begins to unravel when he takes a new job hundreds of miles away from home and a strange woman decides she wants him -- whatever it takes. CBS.

* "The Pursuit of Happiness" (9:30 p.m.-10 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) This new sitcom is from the producers of "Frasier" and stars Tom Amandes as a Chicago attorney struggling to maintain his idealism. Melinda McGraw is his wife, stand-up comedian Larry Miller is his brother-in-law, and Brad Garrett is a gay law partner. NBC.

* "Dateline NBC" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) Correspondent Dennis Murphy details the tragic story of an 18-year-old college student who entered a New York hospital for treatment of a viral infection -- and of the legal efforts by her father, writer Sidney Zion, to learn what killed her. NBC.

* "Murder One" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) You must have heard the gimmick of this new urban-reality show from Steven Bochco ("NYPD Blue"), getting a Tuesday preview for three weeks before taking a regular Thursday slot. Daniel Benzali plays a high-powered attorney who will deal all season with a single L.A. murder case. ABC.
