Monday night Larry King did Dallas and got lots of publicity.In fact, every time Larry King hooks up with on-again-off-again presidential candidate Ross Perot, he generates lots of publicity and water-cooler buzz.But a question seldom asked when discussing what an important force in American politics CNN's "Larry King Live" show seems to have become is just how many people actually watch the show on a regular basis. There are other questions, too, such as why Perot and King keep getting together and what happens in terms of ratings and politics when they do.On a regular basis, more people watch nightly reruns of Jessica Fletcher in "Murder She Wrote" on cable channel USA than watch Larry King.

Politicians are people too -- and that can put them in a tough spot. When Vice President Dan Quayle spoke as a father first and indicated to talk show host Larry King this week that he would support whatever decision his 13-year-old daughter would make about abortion, he found himself the center of another media feeding frenzy.And no wonder. The remark, a response to a hypothetical question, stood in stark contrast to the political platform he represents.Predictably, it triggered a barrage of ridicule from one side of the abortion debate and a responding round of defensive explanations from the other.

Take the night off. For the most part, TV has.* "Fall From Grace" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Part 2 of 2. Plans for the Normandy invasion are developed, hidden and eagerly sought in the conclusion of this imported miniseries, which makes the plans for D-Day seem almost as important as whether an Allied agent (Tara Fitzgerald) will be faithful to a fellow agent (Gary Cole), and whether he, in turn, will fall for the advances of another fellow agent (Patsy Kensit). In the end, the Allies conquer the Germans, and love conquers all. Michael York plays a sinister Nazi with more subtlety than expected.

HERE'S YOUR choice next Tuesday night as you curl up on your sofa and ponder which TV show to watch. Will it be "Who Wants to be a Millionaire"? "NYPD Blue"? Or a conversation between Al Gore and George W. Bush? In the ratings game, the Gore-Bush debate would finish last. That may be what Mr. Bush, the Republican presidential nominee, seeks: a debate format short in length, suitable to his informal style and largely unwatched. That's the impression the Texas governor is leaving. He looks like he's trying to manipulate this year's presidential debates for his own strategic purposes.

One month from the start of the NBA's free agency frenzy, LeBron James has handicapped his field of suitors and says the Cavaliers lead the pack. In his first interview since the Cavs' season ended with a shocking second-round loss to Boston, James told CNN's Larry King that Cleveland has "an edge" to re-sign him when the greatest collection of free agents in league history hits the open market on July 1. King, who interviewed James on Tuesday at the two-time MVP's home near Akron, asked the superstar if Cleveland has "an edge going in?"

Remember Me When I'm Gone, by Larry King. Doubleday. 213 pages. $19.95. This is one of those trick books that seem all too easy (Why didn't I do that?), but work well because both the idea and the implementation are sound. King, of course, has interviewed more people that most cemeteries could contain. Encouraged by his agent, he confronted an array of notables with the question "How would you like to be remembered after your death?" More than 300 responses are published here, and are delightful, touching or in some cases revealingly absurd.

Celebrities have long endorsed sodas, breakfast cereal and clothes, so is it surprising that they are weighing in on angioplasty?Increasingly, celebrities are lending their names to hospitals and medical programs, often as an expression of gratitude for helping them through a personal medical crisis.Present and past Orioles Eric Davis and Boog Powell have urged self-testing for colon cancer in a promotional campaign sponsored by the University of Maryland Medical Center, WJZ-TV Channel 13 and Giant Pharmacies.

Chris Myers didn't have to be asked twice when the poobahs at ESPN gave him the chance to take over the nightly "Up Close" interview show from Roy Firestone. It just seemed like the logical thing to do."I've always wanted to do a sports-talk interview show. I've always been a fanatic of talk shows. I was such a big fan of Johnny Carson growing up and I used to listen to Larry King when my family lived in South Florida. I just didn't think a show like this would become available," said Myers.

Call it the ultimate in underground humor. For a book published earlier this year, television personality Larry King posed an unusual question to well-known public figures and celebrities: "How would you like to be remembered after your death?" More than 300 people responded to his query, providing King with the material for Remember Me When I'm Gone: The Rich and Famous Write Their Own Epitaphs and Obituaries. Last words range from actor Stacy Keach's lighthearted verse, "Here lies Stacy Keach/A Georgia peach/Lived at the beach/Now out of reach," to comedian Howie Mandell's last laugh, "Is It Me or Is it Dark In Here?"
