Tonight's sitcoms go to great lengths to attract viewers with guest stars and hot-button plot lines, but the two TV offerings not to miss are other genres: a documentary on the Dionne quintuplets and a variety compilation of video stunts from David Letterman's "Late Show."* "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." (8-8:30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Tonight's guest star is NBC's crown prince of Burbank: Jay Leno, who appears as himself in a plot line that has him suing Will (Will Smith). I'd reveal more about the story, but I've been advised to consider it the intellectual property of NBC.* "Dave's World."

It's a big night for guest stars, but that's about all that qualifies it as a big night.* "Under One Roof" (8-9 p.m., Channel 13) -- Thomas Carter, who learned the TV business under Bruce Paltrow (by starring in "The White Shadow" and directing episodes of that series and "St. Elsewhere"), went off to create "Equal Justice" and now takes the star of that series, Joe Morton, and puts him in another quality series, this one co-starring James Earl Jones and Vanessa Bell Calloway. It's a modern family drama, but the pilot contains lots of light moments as well -- and boasts an appearance by another "St. Elsewhere" veteran, Terence Knox.

More singing, more dancing, and a guest appearance by Nick Jonas kept me interested in the fourth episode of"Smash" -- but the continued lackluster performances of Katherine McPhee's Karen make it hard to root for her over casting-couch Ivy (Megan Hilty). The workshop for "Marilyn the Musical" finally gets under way, fueling Karen and Ivy's growing rivalry. Ivy stays true to the character she's set to play and is the last to arrive on day one of rehearsal. However, her confidence and star power immediately take a hit upon learning Karen has been cast in the ensemble.

America says goodbye tomorrow night to Cabot Cove, Maine's most beloved citizen and faithful viewers of "Murder, She Wrote" are definitely not happy.Bad enough, they say, that CBS has canceled a show they still enjoy, even after 12 seasons. But even worse, the network is taking away a show that's one of the last of a dying breed -- a show you could watch without fear of being offended, an old-fashioned murder-mystery that emphasized the mystery over the murder, a star vehicle for Angela Lansbury, a woman who's been making movies since the 1940s.

Tonight's recommended lineup is simple, yet exciting: "VR.5" at 8, "The X-Files" at 9, "Picket Fences" at 10. Three excellent series; three new episodes. With "VR.5," since it's the premiere, you can't get any newer.* "VR.5." (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Make plans to watch, and to tape, this new series, because after a few weeks -- when the series really launches into high gear and gets darker and stranger -- you may not only be hooked, but be wanting to go back and ferret out clues from earlier episodes.
