Buddy Hackett, Soup Sales visit 'Boy Meets World'

Today's TV

December 13, 1996|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,SUN STAFF

For those strong of stomach, one of the most powerful dramas of the current TV season repeats tonight.

"Boy Meets World" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- This is worth watching, if only to see Buddy Hackett and Soupy Sales as a pair of mobsters. Guess they'd strike fear into anyone's heart, huh? ABC.

"Everybody Loves Raymond" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Raymond and his brother duke it out over who should captain their basketball team. CBS.

"Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" (9 p.m.-9: 30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Rapper Coolio jumps out of a concert poster and helps Sabrina find her cat. ABC.

"Forces of Nature II" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WKZ, Channel 13) -- Mother Nature can be be one fearsome lady when she gets her dander up, and here's proof: film of all sorts of natural disasters, including avalanches, wildfires and floods. No word on whether baseball's executive committee is included. CBS.

"Millennium" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- A repeat of the series pilot, which colleague David Zurawik termed "one of the two most powerful and finely crafted new dramas of the season," as well as "one of the bloodiest, most gruesome and violent in years," should put folks in one heck of a holiday spirit. Fox.

"Homicide: Life on the Street" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- State's Attorney Danvers' fiance is killed during a robbery, and he and Pembleton (Andre Braugher) have different ideas on how to handle the investigation. Brian Constantini, erstwhile PR maven for WCBM radio, has what he promises is a "key part" in tonight's episode, as Det. Rick Pires.

"Late Show with David Letterman" (11: 35 p.m.-12: 35 a.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Tonight's guests include Beavis and Butt-head. Heh heh, cool. CBS.

Cable

"Staying Alive" (10 a.m.-noon, USA) -- Yes, but to what purpose? This 1983 sequel to "Saturday Night Fever" is pretty awful, and I suspect it's no accident Sylvester Stallone hasn't directed a non-"Rocky" movie since.

"Brian's Song" (9 p.m.-10: 30 p.m., repeats 1 a.m.-2: 30 a.m., A&E) -- Billy Dee Williams is Gale Sayers and James Caan is Brian Piccolo in this Emmy-winning 1971 drama about a football player diagnosed with cancer. It's a little maudlin at times but still pretty powerful.
