Have you noticed that one show is no longer sufficient for a season-ending story? Two more series begin their so-long set-ups tonight, and another signs off with a cliffhanger episode to be resolved in the fall (assuming "Hope & Gloria" does return, a pretty good bet).
* "Martin" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Regular viewers know a wedding is on the way, and it will take two weeks to unfold. Tonight, Martin and Gina (Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell) begin to lose control of the ceremony. Note: As part of a network contest, Baltimoreans Tonya Johnson and Darryl Pratt were among 19 couples who were also married on the "Martin" set in connection with the taping of the show's finale. Fox.
* "Hope & Gloria" (8:30 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Burt Reynolds makes a guest appearance in the cliffhanging season finale. Told she is pregnant, Gloria (Jessica Lunday) agrees to a third try at marriage with her ex, Louis (Enrico Colantoni) -- and the ceremony is scheduled live on TV talk show hosted by Dennis Dupree (Alan Thicke). But will she go through with it? NBC.
* "Living Single" (8:30 p.m.-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- In part one of the two-part finale (with part two next week), Regine and Khadijah (Kim Fields and Queen Latifah) agree to appear on a talk show as "Roommates From Heaven." But conflict arises -- are you surprised? -- and Regine prepares to move out. Fox.
* "The Ultimate TV Trivia Challenge" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Let's get it rolling with a tricky question about host Shelley Fabares ("Coach"): Can you name this five-decade actress' first series? It was not "The Donna Reed Show" (1958-1966). She broke in as an occasional regular on "Annie Oakley" (1952-1956). Dennis Franz, Ed Asner, Judith Light, Patrick Duffy and Bob Costas appear in a game-show format. ABC.
* "ER" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Movie connections here. Valerie Perrine ("Lenny," "Superman") makes a guest appearance as the mother of Susan (Sherry Stringfield), and the episode was directed by Quentin Tarantino, who won an Oscar this year for the script he co-wrote for "Pulp Fiction." NBC.
* "Hollywood Stars: A Century of Cinema" (9 p.m.-10:30 p.m., The Disney Channel) -- Meryl Streep, Kevin Costner, Clint Eastwood and Anthony Hopkins select their own favorite pictures from the past. In addition, Mr. Costner, Spike Lee and Julia Roberts are among those interviewed.
