The oddest of odd couples sits down for a chat with Larry King tonight.
"Mad About You" (6: 30 p.m.-7 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Paul invests in a virtual reality system after trying it out and getting a back rub from Christie Brinkley. Hard to believe, but this doesn't sit real well with Jamie. A classic.
"State Circle" (7: 30 p.m.-8 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- Just as the swallows return to San Capistrano every year, so, too, do the Maryland legislators return to Annapolis which means it's time for the return of this weekly round-up of things political. Tonight's 1997 kick-off includes interviews with Gov. Parris N. Glendening, Senate President Mike Miller and Speaker of the House Casper R. Taylor Jr.
"Dave's World" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Dave's all atwitter when the latest Playboy centerfold's lifelong ambition is to meet him. Unfortunately, the meeting that's soon arranged is not exactly what Dave and the guys had in mind. CBS.
"Louis Rukeyser's 1997 Money Guide" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- Rukeyser and his guests tell you what to do with your money this year.
"Clueless" (9: 30 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Connie Stevens, who starred in more than a few teen flicks in her day, guest stars as Mrs. DeWitt, the new principal, who decrees that cellular phones and loud clothes are no longer welcome on campus. Needless to say, this doesn't go over well with Cher and her friends. ABC.
"Homicide: Life on the Street" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Baltimorean Gay Walch wrote tonight's episode, in which Bayliss and Pembleton investigate the death of a 12-year-old girl and Kellerman (Reed Diamond) gets his day in court. NBC.
"Intimate Portrait" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., Lifetime) -- Usually it's women getting the bio treatment here, but tonight, the spotlight's on Connery, Sean Connery. The show includes segments from a 1965 documentary he wrote and produced on conditions at a Scottish shipyard.
"Larry King Live" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., repeats 2 a.m.-3 a.m., CNN) -- Well, doesn't this sound interesting: Jerry Falwell and Hustler publisher Larry Flynt at the same table, with only a microphone and an interviewer between them. Should be some sparks flying (especially since Falwell's libel suit against Flynt is key to the new film "The People vs. Larry Flynt").
