It was bound to happen: Just as "The Silence of the Lambs" spawned a spate of sadistic thrillers based on increasingly bizarre methods of torturing women, the surprise success of last summer's "The Sixth Sense" has spurred all manner of occult hair-raisers with a spookily gifted child. If "Bless the Child" is any indication, this isn't going to be pretty. Kim Basinger plays a harried psychiatric nurse living a modest existence in New York (stop laughing) when her junkie sister shows up one night with an infant daughter.

As NYPD Blue fades to black with tonight's episode, we take a fond look back at the revolving door of characters who passed through the 15th Precinct during the show's 12-year run. They came, they loved, they fought crime, they drank too much, they bared their bottoms and - with the exception of mainstay Dennis Franz, who played Detective Andy Sipowicz - they eventually left the show. Here's where some of the Blue's crew ended up. David Caruso (1993-1994) The first season of Blue propelled Caruso into superstardom.

Blake Edwards uses a familiar theme in ''Switch,'' does some predictable things and still manages to get a few laughs. Actually, he gets quite a few. You might even say that ''Switch'' is a return to the old Edwards, the man who turned out movies like ''Ten'' and ''Victor-Victoria.''You'll see some of "Victor-Victoria" in ''Switch,'' but then you'll see a lot of other movies, too.''Switch'' has Perry King play a womanizer, an ad man who is murdered by one of three women he has used. When he gets to that great boudoir in the sky, he is told that he has been a bad boy and that he should be sent straight to hell.

Say goodbye to the sheriff's office in Sparta, Ga., as the CBS series "In the Heat of the Night" concludes a seven-season run with a movie-length episode that pays no attention to the farewell occasion.* "TV Laughs at Life Hosted by Brett Butler" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- You may be thinking: Didn't we just see this over the weekend? No, that was a clip-collection show about TV families that aired Saturday on NBC.

On The Weekend Watch:COURT IS ADJOURNED -- Let's see now. The shake-up this spring at MacKenzie and Brackman on "L.A. Law" brought two new partners, Tommy and C.J. (John Spencer and Amanda Donahoe), and a tough new prosecutor, Zoey (Cecil Hoffmann). Victor (Jimmy Smits) and Michael (Harry Hamlin) are gone, along with Grace (Susan Dey), but Dey may still be on the show. Whew! You need a law clerk to keep track, but tonight's season finale of the NBC show (at 10, Channel 2), may change the scenario even further, as a new partner is about to join the firm.

Rick Schroder replacing Jimmy Smits?Had Steven Bochco lost his mind?More than a few people were wondering just that last month, when it was announced that the brooding, charismatic Jimmy Smits would be leaving Bochco's "NYPD Blue" next season. To fill his shoes, Bochco will be counting on former child star Rick Schroder, who will forever remain, in many people's minds, as that cute Ricky Stratton on NBC's "Silver Spoons" from 1982 to 1986.And that announcement was just the opening salvo in what promises to be a bombardment of cast changes this season in some of television's finest dramas.

David who?Remember that guy who used to be on "NYPD Blue," the guy who was supposedly the big breakout star? The guy whose character, Detective John Kelly, was supposed to be the show's moral center? The guy who left the show after one season, deciding that movie marquees were calling?Maybe you don't remember David Caruso, because Jimmy Smits came on board as Bobby Simone in season two, established immediate chemistry with Dennis Franz's Detective Andy Sipowicz and promptly re-established himself as one of the most charismatic stars on TV.Tonight, ABC repeats the second-season opener of "NYPD Blue" (10 p.m.-11 p.m, WMAR, Channel 2)
