'Homicide,' NSA's doorstep

Today's TV

April 26, 1996|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,SUN STAFF

Tonight's line-up makes one thing perfectly clear: Boy, do I miss those Muppets.

"Babylon 5" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- Is that really Arthur, King of the Britons, aboard ship? Guest star Michael York says so. UPN.

"Boy Meets World" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Cory (Ben Savage) finds himself back in the '50s, where he has the misfortune of running into Potsie (Anson Williams) from "Happy Days." After a few minutes with Potsie (wonder if he'll sing?), I'm sure Cory can't wait to get home. ABC.

"Homicide: Life on the Street" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Bayliss and Pembleton (Kyle Secor and Andre Braugher) find their murder investigation leading right to the NSA's doorstep. NBC.

"Singin' in the Rain" (10 p.m.-midnight, WETA, Channel 26, and 7 p.m.-9 p.m., TCM) -- If you haven't seen it yet, do. There's more to this wonderful film than Gene Kelly splashing around in rain puddles.

"Off Beat" (12: 30 p.m.-2 p.m., HBO) -- Judge Reinhold and Meg Tilly are two talented actors, but they manage to generate not a single spark between them in this 1986 cop comedy. The scriptwriters should be cited for a misdemeanor, at least.

"A.K.A. Cassius Clay" (4 p.m.-6 p.m., TNT) -- A 1970 documentary about Muhammed Ali, released before the legendary Ali-Frazier fight, when America wasn't sure if he could still box after serving a stint in prison for draft evasion. Events, of course, proved he could.

"Fatal Attraction" (9 p.m.-11: 30 p.m., USA) -- Here's another movie that must be a total waste of time to watch on commercial TV. Not that it was a masterpiece to begin with.
