A great night, no matter where you turn

No complaints: Lots of good stuff is on hand, almost any time, and anywhere, you look.

* "Mad About You" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., Channel 2) -- Eric Stoltz and Wendie Malick are very funny in their guest-starring roles tonight, but the very best thing about tonight's "Mad About You" is its clever story structure: Paul and Jamie (Paul Reiser, Helen Hunt) are shown at a party, and we alternate between their respective points of view as they interact with old friends and new acquaintances. NBC.


* "My So-Called Life" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., Channel 13) -- Tonight's topic is another universal trauma of the high school years: the school dance. Claire Danes stars. ABC.

* "Seinfeld" (9 p.m.-9:30 p.m., Channel 2) -- A fresh "Seinfeld" is on tap tonight, with George (Jason Alexander) in romantic trouble -- again. NBC.


* "Chicago Hope" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., Channel 11) -- Last week, Dr. Antonovich (Margaret Colin) regained consciousness long enough to see a white horse at her bedside, which viewers just tuning in may have mistaken as a flashback to "Twin Peaks." But the horse was real, and, this week, there's no horsing around: The doctor is in a coma. Coincidentally, one of the nurses administering treatment is played by guest star Robyn Lively, a familiar face from the final season of "Twin Peaks." CBS.

* "Frasier" (9:30 p.m.-10 p.m., Channel 2) -- A great repeat: Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) invites the new station manager home for a date with Daphne (Jane Leeves), but farcical misunderstandings lead to some very funny situations. NBC.

* "ER" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., Channel 2) -- Sherry Stringfield picks up a romantic interest on "ER" -- but she isn't necessarily interested. NBC.

* "Eye to Eye With Connie Chung" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., Channel 11) -- In one report tonight, Bernard Goldberg takes a somewhat sympathetic look at the often alienated Connecticut congressman Gary Franks, whose conservatism irks most of his liberal black peers. Mr. Goldberg and Mr. Franks seem to delight in the story, but no one else on camera does. CBS.


* " 'Taxi' marathon" (8 p.m.-5:30 a.m., NIK) -- The fifth night -- as with the others, presented in sequence. We're into the best shows now, so keep the VCR humming.

* "Nunsense 2: The Sequel" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., A&E;) -- In one sense, this sequel to the stage comedy "Nunsense" is second to nun.
