Who needs Bruce Willis? That's the nose-thumbing attitude being mischievously taken tonight at 9 by Cybill Shepherd in "Stormy Weathers," the ABC movie, which obviously has its eye on a weekly series.Like Maddie Hayes in "Moonlighting," Samantha Weathers -- call her Sam -- is a private investigator with a hands-off attitude and a mouth to back it up.Only Sam doesn't have to parry Dave Addison's repertory of wisecracks. She's very much her own woman, and Ms. Shepherd doesn't let you forget it.Sam used to be called Stormy, but anyone using the nickname these days had better duck.

Paul Schrader, the screenwriter of Taxi Driver (1976), once asked Martin Scorsese, its director, "This privilege we have of creating unreal images, things that we make up, that never happened - does this privilege, this freedom, allow you to live vicariously? To what extent does it relieve sexual tension?" Scorsese answered, "None" - and a minute later added, "I was crazier when I finished Taxi Driver than when I began." A new 35mm print of Taxi Driver premieres Monday at 9:10 p.m. at AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring - and this story about a violently alienated Manhattan cabbie is still crazy, and harrowing, after all these years.

How's this for big-name talent? Cybill Shepherd in a movie written by Larry McMurtry based on a book by Shelby Foote?That's part of the lineup in "Memphis," a made-for-TV movie that premieres at 8 tonight on cable channel TNT. And the whole is even greater than the sum of its parts. This is one of the most stylish, lyrical and finely crafted TV movies of the year. You'll feel the sweat, sex and desperation of the main characters while the film plays. Images of violence and tenderness will rattle around in your head long after the final credits roll.

Remembered today as the series that introduced Bruce Willis, "Moonlighting" featured Cybill Shepherd as Maddie Hayes, a suddenly impoverished fashion model who finds that one of her few remaining possessions is the Blue Moon Detective Agency, headed by David Addison (Willis). "Moonlighting" was responsible for some of television's finer hours, including a black-and-white film noir episode. At its worst, "Moonlighting" was a self-indulgent mess. But "Moonlighting" at its best is worth watching -- which you can do today during Bravo's six-episode marathon, starting at 1 p.m. Beginning tomorrow, "Moonlighting" will air weeknights at 7 on Bravo.

In case you aren't confused enough on this first day of the big affiliate switch, CBS has more surprises in store for viewers this week.Starting tonight, the network that bet the farm on baby boomers -- and lost -- is launching an overhaul of its prime-time schedule. Three new weekly series -- all sitcoms -- premiere this week, starting with Cybill Shepherd's "Cybill" tonight. Wednesday, it'sDelta Burke in "Women of the House" and Robert Pastorelli in "Double Rush."Launching this many big-name series so early in the new year is unprecedented and suggests how much ratings trouble CBS is in with its aging audience.

CYBILL SHEPHERD says it best in "Texasville" when she says, "This is a good town to get depressed in." She's not talking about the title metropolis, but the description holds. This is not only a depressing town, this is a depressing movie.It's the sequel to the 1972 "Last Picture Show," which some think is one of the best films made in the '70s. No one is likely to think the sequel is one of the best films of the '90s. It may be one of the longest, one of the most pointless, but it is certainly not one of the best.
