Today's TV

January 16, 1996|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,SUN STAFF

Do you really want to pay $29.95 for the O. J. interview? I mean, what is he going to say? I'm guessing a variation of, "I didn't do it." Far better to watch NBC tonight and hear the O. J. Simpson jurors say what they were thinking. Now, that should be interesting.

* "Rock 'N' Roll Skating Championships" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Tired of all those figure skaters gliding over the ice to the music of a bunch of dead composers? This may be your lucky night: Oksana Baiul is going to skip the ballet for once and skate to Aerosmith. Other performers include Scott Hamilton, Kristi Yamaguchi, Katarina Witt and Victor Petrenko. Fox.

* "A Promise to Carolyn" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Delta Burke and Swoozie Kurtz star as two sisters who, finally recalling some memories that have been long suppressed, start believing their mother was responsible for their sister's death 40 years ago. CBS.

* "Dateline NBC" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Stone Phillips interviews some of the O. J. Simpson trial jurors. Wonder if the interview will last longer than their deliberations did? NBC.

* "In Her Own Image" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- Comic Elayne Boosler serves as tour guide for this look back at actresses who have made their mark on TV.

* "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (11:35 p.m.-12:35 a.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Jennifer Jason Leigh, an early Oscar candidate for her role in "Georgia," is among the scheduled guests. NBC.

* "The Karate Kid" (3 a.m.-5 a.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Wanna see how much an actress can change over the years? Watch Elisabeth Shue in "The Karate Kid," where she plays the role of Ralph Macchio's ornamental girlfriend, then see her at The Charles in "Leaving Las Vegas."

Hard to believe it's the same person.


* "Addams Family Values" (4 p.m.-5:30 p.m., HBO) -- Not as good as the TV series that inspired it, but far better than the first movie, this 1993 sequel has some moments of pure inspiration like a Thanksgiving pageant you'll wish your school had put on.
