MUST-SEE: "Two Guys and a Girl" (8 p.m.) and "Norm" (8:30 p.m.), both ABC. In the shrinking world of situation comedies these are the only two we get on Fridays from the big networks. Fortunately, "Norm" is usually pretty good and "Two Guys" has its moments. Tonights "Two Guys" includes Petes involvement with an older woman played by Bo Derek. Then "Norm" reruns the episode that helped nudge Nikki Cox out - she has her own show now on WB - and brought Faith Ford back in. Shelly (Ford) returns to Norms life, just as he has a new worry: Someone is secretly enamored of him. The result is reasonably funny, in the usual dry "Norm" way.
MUST-SEE: "Somewhere in Time," 5:20 p.m., TBS. When this movie came out in 1980 it drew some passionate fans. A playwright (Christopher Reeve) is whisked into the past, where he romances an actress (Jane Seymour). Here is a film rich in feelings and in detail and a great soundtrack. Its also obvious that "Titanic" borrowed heavily from the "Somewhere in Time" plot. Reeve politely objects, insisting he sees no comparison.
"The Fugitive," 7 p.m., CBS. Heres a rerun of the episode in which Richard Kimble learned theres a Web site dedicated to a belief in his innocence.
"CSI," 8 p.m., CBS. A teen is found dead in the desert.
"Nash Bridges," 9 p.m., CBS. Modern-day pirates are robbing the rich.
