Call them the Cagney and Lacey of small-town Southern justice.That's what NBC is hoping we'll call Melissa Gilbert and Cicely Tyson when we see them tonight in "Sweet Justice," a drama that will premiere at 10 on WMAR (Channel 2).The premise is that two women, who could not be more different, find common ground in the cases that arrive at their storefront law firm in an unnamed Southern town. If you're thinking you've been there before with, say, "Young Lawyers" (ABC, 1971, Lee J. Cobb, Zalman King and Judy Pace)

It looks like the best offering on TV tonight is "Saturday Night Live" -- and how long has it been since that happened? It's partly because R.E.M. is on "SNL," and partly because it's such a slow night.* "Sweet Justice" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., Channel 2) -- NBC is doing everything it can to dress up this two-hour episode of "Sweet Justice." It's given it a new title -- "Love Kills" -- a lot of promotion, and then quickly referring to it as a "special 'Sweet Justice' movie." A series episode, by any other name, is just that, even during the November sweeps.

It's a very active TV night, with premieres of three new series. The dog days of summertime TV are over.* "ABC Afterschool Special: Boys Will Be Boys" (4 p.m.-5 p.m., Channel 13) -- This show should have been pushed into prime time to reach a greater audience, because it handles its issue, the definition of sexual harassment in the schools, quite capably.

(noon-5 p.m., 7:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- This second day of action is likely to be no less upsetting -- as in the potential of some top-seeded upsets -- than yesterday's.

Last season, "Beverly Hills, 90210" and "Melrose Place" were paired as a midweek doubleheader.

Accordingly, Erik Estrada is tonight's guest star. NBC.* "28th Annual Country Music Association Awards" (8 p.m.-11 p.m., Channel 11)
