March 26, 1997|By Chris Kaltenbach JTC | Chris Kaltenbach JTC,SUN STAFF

Here's a chance to see if the critics know what they're talking about when they praise "EZ Streets." They can't all be out of their minds.

"Grace Under Fire" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Quentin accidentally shoots at Wade, and Grace finds out just how loopy all the neighbors think her family is. ABC.

"NewsRadio" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- In a repeat from November, James Caan plays James Caan, dropping by the station to do a little character research. NBC.

"Live From Lincoln Center" (8 p.m.-10: 30 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- The New York City Opera performs Puccini's "La Boheme." PBS.

"The Sentinel" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- It's the Sentinel vs. the Psychic, and may the most attuned win. UPN.

"Temporarily Yours" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Deb's old flame is tying the knot with someone else, and Deb's just not sure how she feels about it. CBS.

"Party of Five" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Bailey keeps trying to overcome alcoholism -- not easy during spring break -- while Claudia's in L.A. for a violin competition. Fox.

"Arsenio" (9: 30 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- There's a new producer in town, and her idea of improving things is kicking Al (Arsenio Hall) out into the field. ABC.

"EZ Streets" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Just when it looks as if Leo (Jack McGee) could help put Jimmy Murtha (Joe Pantoliano) away, he thinks better of it. Could a sense of self-preservation have come into play? CBS.

Cable

"Mommie Dearest" (4: 55 p.m.-7: 05 p.m., The Movie Channel) -- Faye Dunaway plays Joan Crawford in one of the most reviled movies ever made, a five-time winner at the 1981 Razzies (otherwise known as the anti-Oscars).

"Biography" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., repeats midnight-1 a.m., A&E) -- Daughter Carrie Fisher is among those interviewed in this bio of Debbie Reynolds, who was a revelation in Albert Brooks' "Mother." The Motion Picture Academy's failure even to nominate her for Best Actress was this year's greatest Oscar snub -- at least until Lauren Bacall was overlooked Monday night.
