TC Up for a few more presidential sound bites?

"Inside Maryland" (7: 30 p.m.-8 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- All six candidates for president -- bet you can't name more than three -- get 2 1/2 minutes each to make their case to the people of Maryland. Besides Messrs. Clinton, Dole and Perot, they include Harry Browne (Libertarian), John Hagelin (Natural Law) and Howard Phillips (Taxpayers).

"Boy Meets World" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Ah, the allure of the college girl Eric lies about his age to get on MTV's "Singled Out," where he figures he's sure to end up with one. Ah, the allure of "Singled Out" Sorry guys, Jenny McCarthy doesn't show up (but Chris Hardwick does, if that's any consolation). ABC.

"Sliders" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- The Sliders slide their way onto a world where water is the most precious commodity and the population seems to have watched "Mad Max" a few too many times. Fox.

"Babylon 5" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- From "Little House on the Prairie" to "Little Space Station in the Galaxy": It's Melissa Gilbert taking the part of Capt. Sheridan's (Bruce Boxleitner) dead wife, who may not be as dead as he thought. UPN.

"Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" (9 p.m.-9: 30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Sabrina's aunt cooks up a dream date for her niece, and the result is Brian Austin Green (of "Beverly Hills, 90210"). ABC.

"20/20" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- As if flying isn't scary enough, Arnold Diaz reports on how airport terminals have become the environment of choice for thieves, pickpockets and other nasty types. ABC.

"Homicide: Life On the Street" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- New cast member Michelle Forbes signs on as headstrong Chief Medical Examiner Julianna Cox and immediately butts heads with all the other headstrongs around the Baltimore PD. NBC.

"The Late Show with David Letterman" (11: 35 p.m.-12: 35 a.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- It's escape from New York, as Dave hits the road for the first of four consecutive Fridays away from the Big Apple. Tonight, the gang -- complete with Stupid Human Tricks -- descends on Boston. CBS.


"House of Wax" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., repeats 1 a.m.-3 a.m., A&E) -- Demented wax sculptor Vincent Price has a thing for Marie Antoinette, and Phyllis Kirk is unfortunate enough to look just like her. Classic '50s horror, atmospheric and kinda scary (especially in theaters, where you can sometimes enjoy the original 3-D effects). Watch for Charles Bronson as Price's mute assistant.
