TRICK QUESTION: Among the many media at the disposal of the CD-ROM, which may be best suited to it?Video and film become grainy and jerky when transferred to computer disks.Photographs, maps and even text lose their crispness on the low-resolution screens of personal computers.Art and animation expressly designed for those screens work better, but must labor under severe limitations.The winner? Radio. The CD format, after all, was originally designed to deliver music, and although the sound cards and speakers most people use preclude true high-fidelity audio, they can deliver radio-quality sound.

Gee, this is going to be tough. What's tonight's best bet on TV? A rerun of "When Harry Met Sally . . .?" Or could it be that baseball game on CBS? Yeah, that's the ticket . . . and the way the playoff structure is being tampered with by the team owners, we may look back on this as the last great "old" World Series.* "When Harry Met Sally . . ." (8-10 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Nora Ephron, who wrote "Sleepless in Seattle," wrote this 1989 romantic comedy as well.

This should come as welcome news to folks in need of easily accessible transportation. Meanwhile, here are some events well within walking distance: Thanks to the crack staff at the Golden West Café, 1105 W. 36th St., as well as local promoters like Dana Murphy and Adam Savage, there is a run of really excellent bands playing there over the next few weeks.

Andy Warhol once said that, in the future, everybody would get their 15 minutes of fame. Well, the future seems to be here. Twice this week, Jerome Stanfield, a 37-year-old Baltimore resident, appeared on "The Montel Williams Show" to "confess" he had raped 90 prostitutes from 1990 through 1992. The producers of the daytime talk-TV show promoted the interviews as an unprecedented expose of a serial rapist.The only problem is that police say it never happened.The show was taped last week in New York City and aired in Baltimore Monday and Tuesday afternoons.
