Tube Notes

By Mike Hughes
Gannett News Service

Tonight's Must-See

"Listen Up," 7:30 p.m., CBS. In a TV world that refuses to take a stand, Tony Kornheiser — the guy this show is based on — takes a strong one: Soccer, he says, is a stupid sport. "It's a completely meaningless game," Kornheiser said. "And nobody likes watching it." That makes this episode ironic: The fictional Tony (Jason Alexander) has overcome his soccer aversion. He's paying so much attention to his daughter's soccer championship that his son is jealous. Brandi Chastain, the Olympic soccer star, makes a guest appearance.
