Paramount's 'Live Shot' on the scene

THE BALTIMORE SUN

A couple of notable repeats tonight on ABC include a series finale and a long-awaited wedding. In addition, another new series premieres from Paramount, purporting to show the behind-camera machinations of a television news operation.

* "Live Shot" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- Move over, "Murphy Brown." This new series is set inside a television newsroom -- for dramatic purposes, not comedy. David Birney, who stars as anchorman of a Los Angeles station, says satire is a strong element. UPN.

* "Full House" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- The popular family series left the schedule forever -- not counting reruns we'll probably be seeing to the turn of the century -- with this episode filled with flashbacks. Remember? The gimmick has Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) suffering amnesia after falling off a horse. ABC.

* "Alien 3" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Look for former Baltimorean Charles "Roc" Dutton as one of the convicts on the penal planet of this 1992 sequel to the creepy "Alien" (1979) and creepier "Aliens" (1986). Sigourney Weaver reprises her role as the tough survivor who knows the most about the nightmarish aliens' behavior. Fox.

* "Tom Clancy's World War II" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., MPT, Channels 22, 67) -- The Maryland-based author introduces wartime reminiscences of several dozen prominent Americans, including U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland and notable submarine thriller author Capt. Edward Beach ("Run Silent, Run Deep").

* "Love, Honor and Obey: The Last Mafia Marriage" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- When last we saw him, crime family inheritor Eric Roberts was staring into the flashing muzzle of a handgun in Sunday night's installment of this 1993 miniseries. Does he survive into the concluding segment? The film also stars Nancy McKeon and Ben Gazzara. CBS.

* "NYPD Blue" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- One of the spring's most-anticipated season finales gets a repeat, as Andy and Sylvia (Dennis Franz and Sharon Lawrence) finally make it to the altar. ABC.

Cable

* "Butterflies Are Free" and "Love Story" (8 p.m.-10:25 p.m. and 10:25 p.m.-12:30 a.m., TNT) -- Do you have trouble understanding -- or remembering -- the wear-it-on-our-sleeves mood of the early 1970s? These two films will bring it back. Edward Albert, Goldie Hawn and Eileen Heckert star in the first (1972), the story of a blind pianist (Albert) seeking independence. And Ryan O'Neal and Ali McGraw are the sweetly doomed lovers of the second (1970).
