June 07, 1996|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,SUN STAFF

Ice skating. Painting. Wrestling. Ax-murdering. Strutting across stages in skimpy costumes You'll find all sorts of interesting activities on TV tonight.

"Dateline NBC" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Of the six children who survived last year's Oklahoma City bombing, two of them -- remarkably -- were from the same family. Correspondent Len Cannon visits the Denny family to see how 4-year-old Brandon and 3-year-old Rebecca are doing. NBC.

"Sergei Grinkov: A Celebration of Life" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- If you missed this extraordinarily moving tribute to the late Russian pairs skater, by all means watch it tonight. CBS.

"Wall $treet Week with Louis Rukeyser" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- If investing is your thing, don't miss this one, as the veteran "Wall $treet Week" host is joined by a panel of noted technology investors.

"CPW" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Raquel Welch joins the cast of this sinking, if not already sunken, ship. CBS.

"Cezanne" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- If nothing else, this look at the life of the great French post-impressionist painter Paul Cezanne should persuade you to hop on I-95 and head to Philadelphia, where a major retrospective of his work is on display through Sept. 30.

"Andy Kaufman: I'm From Hollywood" (7 p.m.-8 p.m., repeats 1 a.m.-2 a.m., Comedy Central) -- Remember when Andy Kaufman decided he was a wrestler? Among other things, he claimed that no woman could ever beat him (one eventually did) and almost got his neck broken on "Late Night With David Letterman." This look at his wrestling career originally aired while he was still alive and a regular on "Taxi."

"Biography" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., repeats midnight-1 a.m., A&E) -- Remember this little ditty: "Lizzie Borden took an ax/Gave her mother 40 whacks/When she saw what she had done/Gave her father 41." Meet the woman behind the rhyme (and the crime), as "Biography" visits New England's favorite alleged ax murderer.

"No Time for Sergeants" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., repeats midnight-2 a.m., AMC) -- Ever wonder how Andy Griffith got so popular that he got his own TV show? Well, there were a few comedy records in the 1950s and there was this 1958 film, where Andy's a country boy leaving his mark on the Army.

"Las Vegas Showgirls" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., E!) -- Watch an actual showgirl audition! Gape in awe at clips from actual shows, including "Viva Las Vegas" and the "Follies Bergere!" Thank the gods that you are watching this and not the movie "Showgirls," which is twice as long and probably not half as enjoyable.
