WTCT TCT Today Data Wi Dwlsht Thompson Praise the Lord CT ji Ami Jul i Has there ever been a more lovable prime-time schlemiel than Homer Simpson, the beleaguered patriarch of Fox's hit series "The Talk about cutting against the grain of his times Homer works in a nuclear power plant for a boss who could be described as Dickensian, but Dickens never thought up anyone this greedy, conniving or conscience-free. In tonight's brand-new episode (at 7) Homer, ever the trendy guy, dines on sushi. As the title Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue implies, all is not well in raw-fish land. Poor Homer is poisoned by an inexperienced sushi-slicer, then told he has only 24 hours to live. Admittedly, 24 hours in Homer's life promises to be more eventful than most men's final days. But Homer doesn't take this lying down, at least in a manner of speaking. No, it's time for Homer to question the very meaning of his existence, and to this end he turns to the Bible. Talk-show host Larry King guests as the authoritative biblical narrator and "Star Trek's" George Takei also has a voice cameo in this very funny take on the spiritual essence of life. isn't. "Lonesome Dove," CBS at 8: Final installment of the acclaimed four-part miniseries. The epic trek from Texas to Montana comes full circle when fate deals Gus McCrae (Robert Duvall) a final hand and his partner Capt. Woodrow F. Call (Tommy Lee Jones) makes good on an old vow to bring him home. The mythic death of the Old West has never been better articulated in TV form. "Gabriel's Fire," ABC at 8: When Josephine (Madge Sinclair) starts dating Rollie (Louis Winfield If "The Simpsons" offers a window on our culture, poor old Homer is the chief window-washer, doomed to keep leaving smudgy fingerprints on all those pesky little panes. Bless him for it. Highlights "Cheers," NBC at 8: In the second of two parts Rebecca (Kirstie Alley) dons a bridal outfit and prepares to waltz down the aisle with Robin (Roger Rees). You wouldn't expect it to be all champagne and garters after that and it certainly Dear Ann Landers: Our 35-year-old son died 18 months ago after a long illness. His wife, "Laurie was a faithful caregiver and we loved her for it. After "John's" death we thanked her for being so wonderful to our son. She has never acknowledged our financial help, which was considerable. She stills lives rent-free in a house we own. Less than a year after John died, Laurie started to date a married man 15 years her senior. He is now divorced and has moved in with her and our two granddaughters. This man brought nothing to the, relationship except a hearty appetite and a pick-up truck. He has a job but most of his checks go for alimony and child support. One of our granddaughters is 15 and knows what is going on. We are not happy about the example their mother is setting. We also feel that Laurie is taking advantage of us by living in our home rent-free although we don't need the money. Do we have any right to say or do something? Worried In-Laws in Kansas Dear Kansas: I can understand why you disapprove of Laurie's lifestyle. I wouldn't be crazy about it either. But she is under no obligation to answer to you. You were generous to allow her to live rent-free in your home. I hope that you will continue to do so, if not for her sake, for your son's children. They need you in their lives. If you have a confrontation with their mother she could cut you out, and that would be a tragedy. So, swallow hard, dear, and close one eye. It's in your own best interest. Latest jewelry fad hard on car owners Dear Ann Landers: I'm an old fogie in my 50s and was never concerned about the effect rock groups had on kids until my "new to me" 1987 Cadillac Seville hood and trunk ornaments were stolen. The replacements will cost more than $100. I've since learned that the kids here, in a suburb of Grand Rapids, have caught on to wearing these ornaments upside-down as necklaces or belt buckles, as a symbol against the establishment, just like certain rock groups do. I've worked hard for 16 years in real estate sales and finally was able to buy my "dream car." Within four weeks, some kid ripped off the ornaments while I was at the county fair watching our 12-year-old grandson become grand champion for his steer. Get the picture, Ann? Dutch Reform area, County Fair, 4-H achievers, and kids stealing emblems off a car because some rock star started a fad. I hope all mothers who read this will check their kids' jewelry and dresser drawers. If they find these ornaments it's a cinch the kid is up to no good. You should waste no time finding out exactly where the stuff came from, when they were acquired and why. I grew up in this town and there was none of this garbage going on when I was a kid. Please, Ann, print this letter and give me a hand. Things are changing too fast for me. Life is Less Grand in Grand Rapids Dear Life: The changes you refer to are taking place far beyond the city limits of Grand Rapids. It's happening all over. According to Marion Jelks at Grossinger's Village Cadillac in Chicago, stealing crest emblems is very common. Cadillacs and Mercedes are the prime targets. The chrome emblems cost $35 to $55. The gold ones run about $90. Kids use them on belt buckles, walking canes, gym bag zippers, necklaces and even as earrings. War boosts cable subscriptions Bailey), one of her customers, Gabriel Bird (James Earl Jones), is emboldened to ask her out himself. It has been a long time, though, since Bird played the dating game and his rustiness shows. Cable Calls "To Be or Not to Be" (1942), TNT at 7: Before there was Mel Brooks' loopy remake there was the original version, directed with satirical fury by Ernst Lubitsch. Jack Benny stars as the leader of a Polish theater troupe that saves its greatest performance for outwitting the Nazis. Co-starring the incomparable Carole Lombard as Benny's glamorous decoy in what was to be, tragically, her last film role. "The Dunera Boys" (1985), at 8: Another drama set in World War II, this one an Australian-made tale about a group of Jewish refugees who are sent to an Australian POW camp after being mistaken for spies and infiltrators. Bob Hoskins and Joseph Spano co-star in this decidedly offbeat comedy-adventure. Talk Time "Arsenio Hall," Fox at 10:30: Dick Clark, actress Rae Dawn Chong. "Tonight," NBC at 10:30: Actress Lucie Arnaz, with guest host Jay Leno. "Late Night With David Letterman," NBC at 11:30: Martin Mull (repeat). By The Associated Press Carbondale Cablevision is among several cable systems that reported an increase in calls for cable TV hookup in the wake of last week's outbreak of war between Iraq and a U.S.-led coalition of nations. Atlanta-based Cable News Network, a 24-hour all-news channel, has devoted virtually all its programming to the war since the first allied missiles hit Iraq last week. The nation's appetite for war news is affecting all media, with newspapers running extra copies or special editions packed with Persian Gulf reports. Radio stations are expanding news reports to include more war dispatches. They're almost sheepish about the boost in business, but cable television operators say interest in CNN's round-the-clock coverage of the Persian Gulf war has paid off by attracting new subscribers. Renee Neibel, office manager at Carbondale Cablevision, said her office staff has noticed an increase in subscriptions. "We always see an increase at the beginning of a semester at SIUC," said Neibel. "But a lot of our new subscribers have sepcifi-cally said they were getting cable because of CNN's news coverage of the war." ml Reason for cheer: Rebecca (Kirstie Alley) and Robin (Roger Rees) prepare to take their wedding vows. 1 RE6RET THAT I PRANK THAT LA5T ROOT HA5 HE FOR60TTEM THE SL06AN.0FTHE LEGION.
