So far, Kermit the Frog has landed both Michelle Pfeiffer and Cindy Crawford to guest-star on his show. Man, this is one ladies' frog.

"Due South" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Former Detroit Piston Isiah Thomas has a cameo in this tale of a young basketball star who insists he is guilty of murder -- despite Fraser's suspicions to the contrary. CBS.

"Muppets Tonight" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Guest star Cindy Crawford sings a duet with Kermit. OK, so she's not much of an actress or a singer. Who cares?

"Homicide: Life on the Street" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Lewis and Kellerman (Clark Johnson and Reed Diamond) hang out at a seedy motel, hoping to nab some drug dealers. NBC.

"Inside the F.B.I." (9 p.m.-11 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- This multi-part look at the bureau concludes by examining its battles with the Mafia.

Cable

"8 1/2 " (10: 15 a.m.-12: 45 p.m., Showtime) -- Don't miss this chance to see Federico Fellini's 1963 masterpiece, subtitled and without commercials.

"High Points in History: Days of Judgment" (noon-1 p.m., repeats 5 p.m.-6 p.m., History) -- What really happened at the infamous Salem witch trials? This documentary tries its best to sort through the varied accounts of the great 17th-century witch hunt.

"A Night at the Opera" (5 p.m.-7 p.m., TCM) -- While not the Marx Brothers' funniest film, it's certainly their most famous, and one that saved their careers. Watch it, and you'll never watch an opera the same way again. And any film with the ever-stately Margaret Dumont, Groucho's perfect foil, has a lot going for it.

"Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist" (6 p.m.-11 p.m., Comedy Central) -- Ready for 10 straight episodes of the TV therapist most in need of his own professional help? The wicked humor and quirky animation should have you laughing well before episode 1 is over. And by episode 10, you may never be the same.

"The Dick Van Dyke Show" (11: 30 p.m.-midnight, repeats 3: 30 a.m.-4 a.m. tomorrow, Nickelodeon) -- Rob fears he's going bald, so he grows a salad on his head.

"Late Night with David Letterman" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., E!) -- Early Letterman, complete with Howard Stern and Super Dave Osborne, the world's greatest daredevil stuntman you know this show's gotta be a keeper.
