'Friends' takes on a Sheen

THE BALTIMORE SUN

Orioles baseball will keep us from watching ice skating on CBS tonight (unless you can get Washington's Channel 9), so let's see what else is on

"Friends" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Courteney Cox has had Tom Selleck for a love interest, Matthew Perry has had Julia Roberts (sort of) and David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston have had each other. This time, it's Lisa Kudrow's turn, and she's landed Charlie Sheen. And without having had to sign on with Heidi Fleiss! NBC.

"Living Single" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Chip Hurd, real-life mom to Kim Fields Freeman, doesn't take it well when she finds her daughter having a passionate moment on the roof in tonight's hourlong season finale. Even Bobcat Goldthwait is along for the ride. Fox.

"White Men Can't Jump" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- The language will have to be toned down considerably, but you'll still have some fun with this tale of two playground basketball hustlers (Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson) who form an uneasy partnership. Good hoops action. ABC.

"Seinfeld" (9 p.m.-9: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- George's big mouth lets slip a comment that causes a couple to break up and opportunists Jerry and Elaine to move in on the suddenly available prospective mates. NBC.

"New York Undercover" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Two people die maybe. We'll have to wait until next season to find out for sure. Fox.

"ER" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Anthony Edwards directs tonight's episode, as Dr. Lewis (Sherry Stringfield) seeks professional help and Nurse Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) faces an ethical dilemma. NBC.

"Late Show with David Letterman" (11: 35 p.m.-12: 35 a.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- How long has it been since Eddie Murphy was in a movie worthy of him? Too long. Watch him tonight, as Letterman continues his week in San Francisco, and hope he gets his act together soon. CBS.

Cable

"Stagecoach" (1 p.m.-2: 45 p.m., AMC) -- See the western that made John Wayne a star, and director John Ford a household name.

"Uncut" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., E!) -- Johnny Depp, whose career choices -- if not his performances -- have always proved fascinating, is the subject of tonight's frothy profile.

"Babe" (1: 30 a.m.-3: 30 a.m. tomorrow, TNT) -- Susan Clark won an Emmy for her portrayal of Babe Didrickson Zaharias, one of the greatest women athletes of all time, a track and field giant who took up golf after life-threatening surgery and became as much of a champion on the links as she was on the field.
