Noting that "ER" is TV's most popular series, D'Elia added: "It's not like they need our help. We're a hit, but they get huge ratings." If Greene, who is one of "Ell's" anchors, is getting ready to blast off, those associated with the show are keeping mum. "ER" producers refused to even address the similarity, declining any comment. A spokesman for Warner Bros. Television, which produces the series, downplayed the significance of any parallels between the two stories. There are indications that while "Chicago Hope's" Austin will make the NASA team, Greene will most likely stay earthbound, at least for now, according to some observers. The shows have often been talked about in the same breath, despite their numerous differences. The comparisons began when they premiered on the same night at the same time 10 p.m. in 1994. Both are set in Chicago hospitals, and are populated with characters ranging from sympathetic and considerate to combative and abrasive. The two shows have at times shared plot lines. "Chicago Hope" insiders recalled episodes, which aired close together in early 1996, that involved physicians being held hostage in grocery stores by gunmen. Said D'Elia: "It really doesn't surprise me when the two shows have similar medical or emergency stories. It's always within the realm of possibility that we will share some story ideas. But (the NASA story arc was pretty baffling." Co-producer Jan Oxenberg came up with the concept of Austin going into space when the "Chicago Hope" writers and producers convened last June to come up with ideas for the new season. The groundwork, was laid in art Oct. 7 episode in which Austin treated former astronaut Gordon Mays (Chris Sarandon), who was suffering an irregularity in his heart. In later episodes, Mays, who was scheduled to go back into space, suffered a heart attack and was told he could no longer travel on the shuttle. He was instructed by NASA to name his replacement. Austin, seeking a new challenge and taken by Mays' descriptions of his adventures in space, asked him to nominate her. Her decision prompted anger from hospital management, who demoted her. On "ER," last week, Greene told his coiicagucs that he had applied for the space program during his second year of residency, and made the first cut. He tried to defer because his then-wife was just entering law school and his daughter was still in diapers. The issue is expected to come up again in future episodes. D'Elia called the similarity between the two story lines just one example of a strange Hollywood phenomenon. Jr just motes you wonder How can movies like 'Armageddon' and Peep Impact she up at the sai-ie time?" he said. "I went to the movies the other day and saw a trailer for this film called 'Analyze This' shout a mobster seeing a shrink. It sounds just like 'The Sopranos' '"'the new HBO series about a mobster. "Chicago Hope" co-executive producer Nicole Yorkin said there is a silver lining to the coincidence. "A couple of weeks ago, me and fellow co-executive producer Dawn Prestwich were defending the 'Austin Space' story to a TV critic who told us that 'ER' would never do a story line that ridiculous," Yorkin said. "After last week's 'ER,' we had to fight the urge to call him and say, 'Uh, did you catch "ER" last night?' " "Chicago Hope" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on CBS. The network has rated it TV-14 (may be unsuitable for children under 14). "ER" airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on NBC. The network has rated it TV-PG (may be unsuitable for children under 14). 'PJS,' 'Providence' Off to Good Starts Although a yawn met new network programs during the fall, 1999 has gotten off to a rousing start with the premieres of Fox's "The PJs" and NBC's "Providence" over the weekend, based on results issued Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. "The PJs," an animated comedy featuring the voice of Eddie Murphy, drew more viewers than fellow Fox shows "The Simpsons" and "The X-Files" Sunday, despite season-high ratings for both programs. Meanwhile, the family drama "Providence," starring Melina Kankaredes, proved National Nielsen Viewership a godsend for NBC, more than doubling the network's average audience in its Friday time slot. NBC's Thursday lineup bounced back after two weeks in which the holidays depressed viewing, as twin titans "Friends" and "ER" delivered their biggest audiences since September. ABC still won the week, buoyed by the Jan. 4 Fiesta Bowl football game and season-high performances by some of its sitcoms, including "Home Improvement" and "Dharma & Greg." BRIAN LOVVRY Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (Jan. 4-10) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research.

AFI Director Jean Picker I'irsten-berg stressed that the institute is not seeking the 50 most famous movie stars of all time. Instead, judges will be asked to vote on a set of criteria that includes star quality, craft, legacy, popularity and historical context. The API will send the list of nominees to more than 1,800 members of the film community. For more than three decades, the AFI has championed the cause of "advancing and preserving the art of the moving image," but in recent years, the nonprofit organization has been striving to overcome severe cutbacks in funding. As a result, the institute has turned to nonlraditional ways to make money. Last year's show on CBS drew more than 11 million viewers who wanted to see how their favorite films were ranked from No. 1 "Citizen Kane" to No. 100 "Yankee Doodle Dandy." But the telecast drew widespread criticism in the media and on the Internet that the selections were designed as a way for studios to sell their videos. AFI officials strongly disputed the claim, saying the studios had no knowledge of which films would be selected. PopRock Nancy Wilson (The Mint, (i010 W. Pico Blvd., 3231 954-9630).
