Happy Maryland Day.

"Housesitter" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Steve Martin is Newt Davis, an architect who, jilted by his girlfriend (for whom he's just built a dream house), has a one-night fling with bubbly blond con artist Gwen (Goldie Hawn, who else?). Much to Newt's horror, Gwen decides to move in and soon has everyone convinced she's his wife -- including the original girlfriend (Dana Delany). Lots of fun, and with Hawn and Delany to choose between, it sounds like Martin would have trouble losing. Fox.

"Just Shoot Me" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Maya (Laura San Giacomo) complains that her ID photo is ugly, so dad gets one of the magazine photographers to take a better one. Word is he does a pretty fine job. NBC.

"Social Studies" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- Last week's premiere of this series about life at a boarding school was about as bad as TV gets (can Julia Duffy be this desperate?). Can it get worse? Tonight's show centers on a naughty sculpture entered in the school's art fair. UPN.

"Home Improvement" (9 p.m.-9: 30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- It's car night tonight. Brad (Zachery Ty Bryan) gets his driver's license and has his first accident. And the car-racing Unser clan -- Al Unser, Al Unser Jr. and Al Richard Unser -- drop by to play themselves. ABC.

"Frasier" (9 p.m.-9: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- In a repeat from January, Frasier and Niles learn that a little guilt deflection they pulled off in elementary school has had a lasting effect on the class bully. Funny, as always, especially when Frasier tries to make amends. NBC.

"Inside Maryland" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- MPT's newsmagazine celebrates Maryland Day by, among other things, having Louis Goldstein take us on a tour of the State House; profiling Maryland's new top judge, Robert Bell; introducing us to Emily Hammond Wilson, one of Maryland's first female doctors; and dropping in on singer Tori Amos.

"Spin City" (9: 30 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Woody Harrelson drops by in this repeat to play a school janitor who wins a "Mayor for a Day" contest designed for children. ABC.

"The Practice" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- The T.L. Michaels Tobacco Company trial gets under way, and Lindsay (Kelli Williams) does a fine job of getting things started. Oh, don't you just love watching that sleazy corporate lawyer played by Edward Herrmann squirm? ABC.


"Reflections on the Silver Screen" (9: 30 p.m.-10 p.m., repeats 1 a.m.-1: 30 a.m., AMC) -- Ann-Margret talks about life as an actress.
