CBS calls it "Christy," but you can call it "Daughter of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman."It's a new drama series that premieres tomorrow night, starring Kellie Martin as a turn-of-the-century mission-school teacher in the hills of Tennessee. It's based on Catherine Marshall's novel of the same title.The series is part adventure story and part girl-coming-of-age, with a heavy dose of "The Waltons" thrown in.It's romantic, sentimental, sometimes stereotyped and, in the end, a great showcase for the considerable talents of Martin, who almost singlehandedly carried "Life Goes On" in its final season last year.

"Crisis Center," debuting tonight on NBC, is going to face a tough sell here in Baltimore.For one thing, it's displacing the much-beloved "Homicide: Life on the Street" for six weeks in the 10 p.m.-11 p.m. time slot.For another, it's not much of a show.Don't blame the actors, who struggle gamely against a script that has them battling everything but the kitchen sink. Set in what must be San Francisco's most unlucky counseling center, in just the first episode, the staff has to face down: a hostage situation, desk-top birth (of a handicapped child, at that)

Tune in to MPT at 10 tonight and prepare to have a good time."National Geographic Presents" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel dTC 11) -- "Russia's Last Tsar" is at least the third special broadcast in the past year about the tragic fate of Czar Nicholas II, his wife, Alexandra, and their four children. This one is best (and most heart-wrenching) when it shows home movies of the czar and his family, photos taken by the Romanovs themselves and even watercolors by one of Nicholas' daughters. It bogs down a bit when resorting to movie re-creations to fill in some gaps in the archival footage, but it's an interesting hour nonetheless.

Instead, he resolves to fight his disease through diet and other treatments."The story is not the story of someone dying from AIDS, but of someone living with AIDS," Mr. Lowe said earlier this week.
