Here's a cool example of what-goes-around-comes-around: In 1965, a British -made thriller called "Die! Die! My Darling!" hit the movie houses. This study in strangeness and sadism starred the indelibly foggy-voiced, deliciously irreverent Tallulah Bankhead in her last film. She plays Mrs. Trefoile, a religious fanatic who keeps a tight rein on her country house and her suspiciously loyal servants. Obsessed with the recent death of her son, Mrs. Trefoile is only too happy to welcome as a guest her son's former fiancee, the decidedly worldly Patricia Carroll.

In the second and best installment of “The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour,” the follow-up to “I Love Lucy,” the guest star is Tallulah Bankhead, playing herself as a new neighbor of the Ricardos and Mertzes. During a clash of temperaments, Lucy mockingly imitates Tallulah's famed basso voice and “dahling”-peppered phrases, leading to this exchange: Tallulah: “You do a revolting impression of me.” Lucy: “So do you.” There was a lot of truth in that funny scene, and it finds a telling echo in Matthew Lombardo's entertaining play about Bankhead, “Looped,” currently onstage at the Hippodrome starring a persuasive Stefanie Powers.

Tonight's exhibits: Tommy Lee Jones, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Fran Drescher.* "TV Nation" (8-9 p.m., Channel 4) -- It's almost better not knowing what's on this show, because the variety is a constant and pleasant surprise.

The ABC telecast of "The American Comedy Awards" ought to be good for a few laughs -- but other than that, if you want some good first-run entertainment, put on your sneakers and first run.
