Name: : Living Proof No Frizz styling cream What it is: : A lightweight hair lotion that claims to employ the first new anti-frizz technology in more than 30 years. There are two formulations: Straight Making or Wave Shaping/Curl Defining. As a bonus, No Frizz purports to repel dirt and oil, lending itself to "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here" travel destinations. Or just a trip to the beach. How it works: : Created by a team led by Robert Langer, an engineering professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, No Frizz skips the usual fuzz-fighter, silicone, which, when overdosed, can leave hair looking as if it were bathed in bacon drippings.

Roseanne says one of the reasons she decided to produce a sketch comedy show for Rupert Murdoch's Fox network is that she's "sick of white-guy college humor," which she feels typifies "Saturday Night Live" on NBC."You know, that whole sensibility that came out of the '70s with comedians like Steve Martin," she said in a telephone press conference this week."It's some guy standing up there smugly telling you about how cool he is."That, says Roseanne, is what her "Saturday Night Special," which premieres at 11 tonight on WBFF (Channel 45 for a six-week trial run)

"Roseanne" used to be so much better than this."Roseanne" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- After a nine-season run that broke all sorts of new ground, "Roseanne" goes out with the wimpiest of whimpers. Most of the show, which has Darlene and David bringing their new baby home, consists of lines that are only funny to a laugh track, while Roseanne lectures us on how to raise kids (we need to pray more and pay more attention to our extended families -- good advice, maybe, but from Roseanne?

Fox's made-for-TV version of Roseanne's life is just like the supermarket tabloid stories about her: too much. Who wants to know this much -- about her or anyone else?First, take the last four big tabloid headlines about her -- her claim that she was molested by her father, the spousal abuse with which she charges ex-husband Tom Arnold, her stay at a mental institution when she was a teen-ager, and, having a child out of wedlock. Then write five flimsy scenes around each, and you've pretty much got "Roseanne: An Unauthorized Biography," which will air at 9 tonight on WBFF (Channel 45)

"The Woman Who Loved Elvis" is more unadulterated Arnold than it is pure Presley.Roseanne Arnold and her husband Tom produce and star in this offbeat film, which airs at 9 Sunday night on WJZ (Channel 13). Based on the novel, "Graced Land," ostensibly it's about the working poor in Smalltown, Iowa.But the real terrain in subject, theme and style is Roseanne Country -- that familiar territory mined by Roseanne in her weekly TV series, her stand-up comedy, and a previous made-for-TV movie. If you love her Tuesday-night series, if you're devoted to her weekday reruns, if you tape her HBO specials, you will like "The Woman Who Loved Elvis."

ROSEANNE -- THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON / / Anchor Bay / / $39.98 "I wanted to be on TV mainly to break all the rules of television," Roseanne says in an interview included in this DVD collection. She didn't break all the rules, but she broke enough of them to make Roseanne one of network television's most memorable series. And Season 4, scheduled for release Tuesday, was one of the sitcom's best years. In the long view of television history, Roseanne will be remembered for treating blue-collar characters with dignity and respect -- one of the only prime-time series to do so in more than half a century.
