Relive the best of May

Best bet

September 02, 1997|By Chris Kaltenbach

Three repeats offer viewers tonight the chance to relive some of the finest moments from May sweeps one from each of the past three years.

"Mad About You" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) repeats May's tribute to "Citizen Kane," in which Paul's Uncle Marty (Shecky Greene) dies while being interviewed for the family documentary, but not before uttering some cryptic final words that no one can quite figure out. Other guests include Fred DeCordova, as Hugh Moss, a former business associate of Paul's father, and the great Sid Caesar as Uncle Harold, who thinks he has the answer.

"Frasier" (9 p.m.-9: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) dips back to 1995 for a visit from Sam Malone (Ted Danson), who updates Frasier, his former bar-mate on "Cheers," on the gang and laments having spurned yet another bride (Tea Leoni) at the altar.

"NYPD Blue" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) features a 1996 tour-de-force performance from Dennis Franz (actually, it was the first of three incredible performances in a row from one of TV's finest), as his character's son is murdered and Sipowicz -- who had struggled so hard to pull himself together -- threatens to fall apart all over again.
