Flip a coin over shows

Today's TV

January 15, 1996|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,SUN STAFF

Jury selection continues tonight on "Murder One." The only question is, do you want to watch anything else, or restrict yourself to just one hour of quality TV?

* "Kiss and Tell" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Cheryl Ladd stars in this movie about a woman whose husband may be trying to kill her. What genius came up with this original idea? Sorry, but Ms. Ladd's career has been pretty much downhill since "Charlie's Angels." ABC.

* "The Nanny" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Roger Clinton makes an appearance in this episode, which is largely clips from previous shows. CBS.

* "The American Experience" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- "Freedom on My Mind" is the story of civil rights workers who flocked to Mississippi in the early 1960s to register black people to vote. Regardless of what it's about, watch this series every week. (Yeah, I know it airs against "Murder One." You have a VCR, don't you?) PBS.

* "Murder One" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Miss one episode of this, the best drama on TV, and you could end up hopelessly lost. So don't. ABC.


* "Rescue from Gilligan's Island" (9:05 a.m.-11:05 a.m., TBS) -- The castaways make it off the island, then celebrate by going out on a cruise. Guess what happens? This is even worse than the original series, if that's possible.

* "Ghostbusters" (3 a.m.-5 a.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- It's been more than a decade since this film's release, and (with "National Lampoon's Animal House") it's still the best film featuring former stars of "Saturday Night Live." When the marshmallow man walks down that New York street -- I don't think I laughed so hard in the entire decade.
