At the Whisky on Sunday, the British trio performed a show that was heavy on strobe lights and mascara, but equally rich in sudden melodic flourishes and heartbreak. Brian Molko sang of desperate romance with a wounded sneer, pausing during a cigarette break to utter, without a hint of irony: "The greatest thing I've ever learned is to be loved and to love in return." Placebo soon drifted into "My Sweet Prince," an icy torch song that had Molko singing like a passionate blend of Marianne Faith-full and Perry Farrell. He stood on stage in makeup and a gray flannel suit. This sort of gender-blending is hardly a new idea in rock, and Placebo's would hardly matter at all if not for the music. The band's rockers carried an intense urgency not quite captured on the new '"Without You I'm Nothing" album, and found bright melodies amid otherwise grim rhythms. The song "You Don't Care About Us" was built on an upbeat riff right out of '80s Goth pop. Not all of the band's material was up to that intense standard, but the musical peaks were undeniable and furious, until the moment the band stepped off the stage to a storm of violent feedback. Opening the evening was Furslide, a New York-based trio (augmented on Sunday by a keyboardist) that plowed similar emotional territory before closing with a memorably intense guitar rush.

Getting its title character back to work was what the doctor ordered for "Frasier," which attracted more viewers than "Friends" for the first time this season. "ER's" 100th episode also drew that show's biggest audience since Oct. 1. On the down side for NBC, its latest TV movie based on classic material, a version of "The Tempest" starring Peter Fonda, didn't fare much better Sunday than an earlier adaptation of "Crime and National Nielsen Vlewershlp Punishment." NBC also didn't help its cause with a special touting "The Prince of Egypt," which delivered unto the network its lowest rating in that time slot in more than three years. The return of the improv series "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" yielded immediate dividends for ABC, retaining more audience from lead-in "The Drew . Carey Show" than now-defunct "The Secret Lives of Men" could manage. ABC's Saturday lineup is still a disaster, however, as the new dramas "Fantasy Island" and "Cupid" fell to lowest-yet ratings. The former has been canceled, while "Cupid" moves to Thursdays next month. BRIAN LOWRY Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (Dec. 7-13) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research. They are based on the average number of people who watched a program from start to finish. Nielsen estimates that there are 256.6 million potential U.S. viewers age 2 and older.

KNBC 561,034 Becker KCBS 561,034 Divididos Rocks With Its Own Brand of Blues Pop Music Review The cancellation by Chilean band Los Prisioneros, because of scheduling problems, hurt ticket sales for Retila magazine's fourth annual Rock Awards concert Friday at the Grand Olympic Auditorium, but there was still much to enjoy, including the noisy pop of Mexican quartet Riesgo de Contagio, the jazz-accented punk of locals 15 Le- tras, the gothic darkness of LA veterans Maria Fatal and the heavy metal pathos of Mexico's Cuca. But the show's high point was the local debut of Argentina's explosive power trio Divididos. The group soulful, Jimi Hendrix-ob-sessed Ricardo Mollo on vocals and guitar, Diego Arnedo on bass and Jorge Araujo on drums took the stage by storm, delighting the audience with some old favorites, including rocking back-to-back renditions of two Latin American folklore classics, Argentina's "El Arriero Va" and Mexico's "Cielito Lindo." While most rock en espanol bands spend a lot of their time reaching for hipness and stylistic diversity, Divididos stands as an example of three mature musicians who have clearly sold their souls to the blues and are quite happy about it.
