Today's TV

April 04, 1996|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,SUN STAFF

So, what's happening with our favorite Friends in love, Rachel and Ross? Well, it seems Rachel isn't all that thrilled with Ross' plans for the future

"Friends" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Rachel and Ross are arguing, Tom Selleck is back as Monica's love interest, and the boys go bowling. What's not to like? NBC.

"Murder, She Wrote" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- As this series winds down to its long-overdue conclusion, Angela Lansbury and Co. seem determined to wring everything they can out of this last season. Tonight they're off to Australia, where Ms. Fletcher tries to claim the estate of her late great uncle. A guy with murder on his mind has other ideas, however. CBS.

"Caroline in the City" (9: 30 p.m.-10 p.m., WBQAL, Channel 11) -- Caroline has to wrestle with whether to license her comic-strip character to appear on a cereal box. Should she go for the money, or stick with the art? NBC.

"Bermuda Triangle" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Sure, you've heard of 3-D, and maybe 4-D. But are you ready for 27-D? Seems a New York family has its boat sink somewhere in the Caribbean, and they end up in the 27th dimension. Adventures ensue. ABC.

"ER" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Anthony Edwards' Dr. Greene suffers through his fourth straight night on the graveyard shift and has to contend with, among others, a battered wife who's had enough, a young girl trapped inside a crushed car and a lap dancer (could this be what happened to Elizabeth Berkley after "Showgirls?"). NBC.

Cable

"Saturday Night Live" (Noon-1 p.m., repeats 11: 30 p.m.-12: 30 p.m., Comedy Central) -- This "Saturday Night Live" repeat, with host Steve Martin and music from Tom Petty, includes a moving salute to Gilda Radner, who had died earlier in the week.

"Secret Service" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., repeats midnight-1 a.m., History) -- A look at the men assigned to protect America's presidents, beginning with the Pinkerton detectives hired to protect Lincoln and concluding with the unsuccessful assassination attempt on FDR's life during his first inaugural parade, in 1933.

"The Life and Times of... " (8 p.m.-9 p.m., repeats midnight-1 a.m., TNN) -- Jimmie Rodgers, a seminal figure in the early history of country music, is profiled.

"I Dream of Jeannie" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., Nickelodeon) -- Major Healey, that ever-swinging bachelor, throws a mod party. Dig those crazy clothes and that far-out music. Crazy, man, crazy.

"Once Upon a Time in the West" (9: 30 p.m.-12: 30 a.m., repeats in letter-box format 2 a.m.-5 a.m. tomorrow, AMC) -- Italy's Sergio Leone offers his take on the mythic American west, as he tracks a mysterious gunfighter out for vengeance. Henry Fonda pretty much shatters the notion that he could play only good guys in a film that's far from pretty or pleasant (a lot like the Old West itself, one imagines). The stellar cast includes Jason Robards, Claudia Cardinale, Charles Bronson and Woody Strode.
