* "CBS This Morning" (7 a.m.-9 a.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- "Heartscore '96," a five-part health series aimed at preventing heart attacks and strokes, airs all this week in the 7:30 a.m.-8 a.m. time slot. Medical correspondent Dr. Howard Torman will explain what causes heart attacks and strokes, who is susceptible to them and what treatments are or will be available. CBS.

* "Wow! The Most Awesome Acts on Earth" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- An hour of contortionists, jugglers and sword swallowers, including a guy who squeezes himself into a box that measures approximately 14 inches by 18 inches? Sounds like "The Ed Sullivan Show" crossed with Letterman's Stupid Pet Tricks. Could be fun. ABC.

* "Murphy Brown" (9 p.m.-9:30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Murphy has a nightmare in which she goes on trial for being unable to sustain a relationship. All sorts of old flames show up, including Jerry Gold (Jay Thomas) and Peter Hunt (Scott Bakula). CBS.

* "Gulliver's Travels, Part 2" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Mr. Gulliver (Ted Danson) spends some time on a floating island and in a land of talking horses in the conclusion to this miniseries. And you think you live in a strange neighborhood NBC.

* "Murder One" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Richard Cross (Stanley Tucci) gets to squirm a little bit, as the trial of the year rolls merrily along. ABC.

Cable

* "I Love Lucy" (9 p.m.-9:30 p.m., Nickelodeon) -- Lucy unsuccessfully tries to get Ricky to star in her play, "A Tree Grows in Havana." Inspirational line: "Si, mamacita, I have just lost my liver."

* "Not Fade Away: Remembering Buddy Holly" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., repeats midnight-1 a.m., TNN) -- Waylon Jennings, once a member of Holly's band, is the host for this look at an all-too-brief career that ended "the day the music died." Much of it was shot during the taping of a tribute album to be released later this year.
