It's a battle of the titanic egos, as Sam Donaldson and Dick Morris sit across from each other on "PrimeTime Live" tonight.
State of the State Address (noon-1 p.m., repeats 11: 30 p.m.-12: 30 a.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- Gov. Parris Glendening tells us the state of our state.
"Grace Under Fire" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Poor Grace. First, she finds her new boarder is a stripper. Then her son finds one of her old book reports, submits it as his own and gets a lousy grade. ABC.
"Coast to Coast" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- You knew it would be tough for CBS to replace Charles Kuralt, and it was. For this debuting newsmagazine, which sounds a lot like Kuralt's beloved "On the Road" features, the network had to send nine correspondents to find out what was going on off America's beaten paths. Sounds promising. CBS.
"Star Trek: Voyager" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- It seems fitting that a Vulcan becomes the love interest of a holodeck character, as happens here when a gal named Marayna falls for Tuvok. Highly illogical. UPN.
"Ellen" (9: 30 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Florence Henderson guest stars as Joe's (David Anthony Higgins) new girlfriend, who ends up lending Ellen money, much to both women's later regret. ABC.
"PrimeTime Live" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Sam Donaldson interviews one of the most arrogant men alive, former Clinton adviser Dick Morris, who got himself kicked out of the White House (as well, apparently, as his wife's house) for letting a prostitute listen to phone conversations between him and the president. He's sorry now but swears he and the leader of the free world didn't talk about anything important. Cynthia McFadden visits with actress Sandra Bullock. ABC.
"Law & Order" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- The cops and courts grapple with a 5-year-old case that was ruled an accidental death but may have been something far more sinister. NBC.
"Biography" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., repeats 11 p.m.-midnight, A&E) -- If director Milos Forman's "The People Vs. Larry Flynt" has piqued your interest in America's most (in)famous sleaze merchant, then you might enjoy this hourlong look into his sordid career.
"Absolutely Fabulous" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., repeats 2 a.m.-4 a.m. tomorrow, Comedy Central) -- Prepare yourself for Sunday's "Ab Fab" movie with these three episodes from the series that made Patsy and Edina the world's most beloved overindulgers. The tripleheader concludes with the final episode, which looks at the women 25 years later.
