New York -- Pop music's original Material Girl is about to become a multi-media mogul.

Sitting down? Better be, because here it comes: The best new offering on TV tonight is a made-for-television movie on the USA Network. There. I said it, and I meant it.* "Byrds of Paradise" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Timothy Busfield of "thirtysomething" stars as a recent widower who packs off his kids and dog and moves to Hawaii, to take a job as a headmaster of a small prep school. There are enough quirky characters to make this tropical series a sort of "Southern Exposure," but the real focus is the family drama itself.

HBO's telecast of Madonna's "Girlie Show" is on so tonight's the night to watch a live TV event featuring one of the most sexy and talented young women in show business. I'm referring, however, to Nicole Kidman, the guest host of tonight's "Saturday Night Live."* "Saturday Night Live" (11:30 p.m.-1 a.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Prime time is a total washout tonight, but late night is more promising. Long before she linked up with Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman won my heart, or at least my admiration, with her great work in the movie "Dead Calm" and the Australian miniseries "Bangkok Hilton."

Bill Madonna figures his whole golf career began because a couple of Baltimoreans got him interested in teaching the game.It is a career that began 17 years ago when the Pennsylvania native opened his first golf school in Clearwater, Fla. In subsequent years, he took his schools from Puerto Rico to North Dakota, and influenced a lot of golfers in between."

It's easy to get the wrong idea about Madonna's "Justify My Love" video.Some people think the fuss is about sex -- which makes sense, since Madonna's dust-ups are always about sex. Others think it's about money -- which also makes sense, since the singer has an uncanny ability to turn a profit on virtually any kind of trouble.To a certain degree, both sides are right. MTV wouldn't have banned the video clip if it hadn't been deemed too steamy for broadcast. Nor would Madonna stand to have made quite so much money off the song had the ensuing controversy not left millions of Americans eager to see the banned video (which, as a $9.98 video single, will turn up in record stores Dec. 18)

The networks are trying almost anything tonight to get you to tune in. CBS has a bionic reunion telemovie, ABC has a double dose of Abandandos, and Fox has a faux Madonna.* "Wings" (8-8:30 p.m., Channel 2) -- Robert Culp guest-stars as a former astronaut being considered as a spokesman for the airline -- until his cockpit behavior is revealed to include some startlingly unprofessional stunts. Not stunts of aerial derring-do, but of juvenile derring-don'ts, such as giving your co-pilot a "wet willie."
