Interest in the 1994 Winter Olympics in general, and ice-skating in particular, can be gauged in advance, thanks to tonight's one-hour CBS special, "Nancy Kerrigan and Friends" -- in which, needless to say, Tonya Harding is not featured.* "Where on Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?" (11:30 a.m.-noon, WBFF, Channel 45) -- Everywhere, it seems. She's been on computer games for almost a decade, and on PBS for a few seasons now, in a live-action geography-quiz format. This week another variation joins the mix, this one a cartoon action series -- which makes perfect sense, since cartoon characters are featured on the computer-game versions.

After the Grammy nominations were announced last month, Baltimore-native Sisqo, who earned four of the coveted bids, said simply "If I win, I'll be happy, but if I lose, I won't be crushed." Of course not, he's got 5 million other things to fall back on. Charm City's most recent golden - scratch that, platinum (in both hair color and album sales) - child is what you might call a renaissance man for the new millennium. The R&B singer makes his feature-film debut March 9 with the opening of "Get Over It" (in which Sisqo plays a high-school basketball player)

Tonight's the night -- because television, as a thoughtful early gift to harried families everywhere, has conspired to present a night of prime time in which virtually nothing is worth watching. However, you do have two good football games in the afternoon, and George Foreman on "Saturday Night Live" late at night, so plan accordingly.* "NFL football" (1 p.m.-conclusion, Channel 45)

The 1940s produced thousands of different types of military "sweetheart jewelry" designs. Sailors and soldiers, far from home, wanted to send romantic gifts to the girls and women they left behind. Many types of sweetheart jewelry were made, including pins, pendants, lockets and charm bracelets.The most common design was a heart, often decorated with a service emblem or eagle in metal or painted enamel. The heart was made of wood, metal or plastic.Each branch of the service preferred its own emblem, so the pins had wings for the Air Force, an eagle over a globe and anchor for the Marine Corps, an anchor and the initials "USN" for the Navy, or a standing eagle for the Army.
