Tube Notes

By Mike Hughes
Gannett News Service

Tonight's Must-See

"Diagnosis Murder: Without Warning," 8 p.m., CBS. Now that it's doing movies instead of TV episodes, "Diagnosis Murder" can offer bigger stories and life-changing events, such as when Dr. Mark Sloan (Dick Van Dyke) learned that his daughter had been killed. This movie has some dandy interplay between Mark's son, Steve (played by Barry Van Dyke, Dick's real-life son), and an overeager reporter. Their love-hate relationship is played against the backdrop of a serious story about an epidemic sweeping through a migrant camp.

Of Note

"Terminal Error," 7 p.m., Pax TV. Tim Busfield, the "thirtysomething" Emmy-winner, has become the designated villain for TV movies. When last seen, he was placing tiny bombs inside pacemakers. Now he's so mad at his former business partner (Michael Nouri) that he creates a computer virus, with far-flung results.

"Reba," 9 p.m., WB (seen on K5). When Cheyenne thinks her baby is arriving, everyone rushes to the hospital. Surprises follow.

"Maybe It's Me," 9:30 p.m., WB (seen on K5). This above-average comedy starts a two-parter with Molly considering asking Ben to the prom.
