Today's TV

February 06, 1997|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,SUN STAFF

Ever wonder what happened to Audrey Horne, that bewitching, black-haired vixen who specialized in making trouble on "Twin Peaks?" Of course, we know the character got blown up in a bank explosion, but what about the actress who played her?

"Friends" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Shades of "Boxing Helena": Sherilyn Fenn (a k a Audrey Horne) shows up as Chandler's one-legged girlfriend -- which is considerably better than she did in the "Helena" movie, where she ended up with no legs or arms. NBC.

"Diagnosis Murder" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Andy Griffith's back as Ben Matlock in Part 2 of a story line that has him lured out of retirement to defend Dr. Travis against a murder rap. CBS.

"Beverly Hills Cop III" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy), everyone's favorite Beverly Hills-by-way-of-Detroit cop, returns for a third go-round -- and, I'm afraid, pretty much wears out his welcome. Foley's nemesis this time: an amusement park. ABC.

"Seinfeld" (9 p.m.-9: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- George struggles to find an underachiever just like him, someone who deserves the first Susan Ross Scholarship. Good luck. NBC.

"Maloney" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- What do you do when the star of your series has back surgery? You write it into the script, of course at least that's what the folks here did, as Peter Strauss' hip police shrink has to somehow get himself out of bed to talk to a troubled cop. CBS.

"The Naked Truth" (9: 30 p.m.-10 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Nora (Tea Leoni) is busy planning her sister's wedding -- until the bride heads off to Las Vegas at the last minute, leaving sis to deal with mom and dad. Mary Tyler Moore and George Segal play the parents. NBC.

"In Darkest Hollywood: Cinema and Apartheid" (11 p.m.-1 a.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- This two-part series (both airing tonight) looks at how Hollywood depicted apartheid on-screen, including the 1952 screen adaptation of Alan Paton's "Cry, The Beloved Country." It also examines how the cinema may have helped both create and bring down the system of separation of the races.

"Alfie" (10: 45 a.m.-12: 45 p.m., Showtime) -- Just what is it all about, Alfie? Michael Caine made quite a splash in this, his first starring role, playing a swinging guy in swinging 1960s London who discovers that swinging may not be all it's cracked up to be.

"Cronkite Remembers" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., repeats 1 a.m.-2 a.m., Discovery) -- Uncle Walter takes us back to one of his finest hours, probably the one he enjoyed most -- man's first landing on the moon, when space-nut Cronkite summarized his and the country's feelings so eloquently.
