Jenny McCarthy earns wings


That Jenny McCarthy, she's everywhere including NBC tonight.

"Fox After Breakfast" (9 a.m.-10 a.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Ross Perot lets the gang into his office for a tour of what Fox calls "an extensive Americana collection." Wonder what Bob the Puppet will think about this? Fox.

"The Drew Carey Show" (9: 30 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Drew and Lisa (Katy Selverstone) decide to move in together. Problem is, Lisa brings considerable baggage along, of the four-legged kind. ABC.

"The 30th Annual CMA Awards" (8 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Among the artists helping country celebrate itself: Reba McEntire, Alison Krauss, K.T. Oslin (in her first TV appearance since undergoing open heart surgery last year), Marty Stuart, Pam Tillis, Randy Travis, Shania Twain, Bryan White and Trisha Yearwood. CBS.

"Wings" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Brian (Steven Weber) pledges to never date another woman who isn't the kind of gal he'd marry, no matter how beautiful she might be. Wouldn't you know it, the next person he meets is Jenny McCarthy, the fantasy of every MTV-watching, twentysomething male in America. NBC.

"Grace Under Fire" (9 p.m.-9: 30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Grace can't understand why her son Quentin returns from a visit with his father so sullen and angry. Maybe it's because, when he left, he was one actor (Jon Paul Steuer), but now he's another (Sam Horrigan). ABC.

"Law & Order" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- A college student is killed, but the woman accused of murder claims she was drugged and raped beforehand, and is only guilty of self-defense. NBC.

"Primetime Live" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Forrest Sawyer interviews Philip Leonetti, the No. 2 man of the Philadelphia crime family (and nephew of the boss, Nicodemo "Little Nicky" Scarfo), until June 20, 1989, when he began turning state's evidence. Forty-eight convictions later, he's hardly on the mob's most-popular list. ABC.


"Fletch" (8: 05 p.m.-10: 05 p.m.), "Seems Like Old Times" (10: 05 p.m.-12: 20 a.m.) and "Foul Play" (12: 20 a.m.-2: 50 a.m., TBS) -- Ever wonder why Chevy Chase can't seem to be in a very good film? Maybe you'll get some clues from watching these: All have moments, but they're mostly just tedious.

"SeaTek" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., repeats 11: 30 p.m.-midnight, The Learning Channel) -- This video magazine about things wet opens with looks at a shark researcher, a simulator used in training oil-barge captains and a guy who maps underwater caves. Interesting, if a little superficial.
