WORTH NOTING ON TV

SATURDAYCops in London (Fox, 8-9 p.m.): Spare me those hoked-up "reality" shows, but give me "Cops" - well, occasionally. It puts "video verit to honest use by tagging along with local officers as they respond to an array of calls. You end up appreciating - and maybe even understanding - the thankless demands of police work. This edition visits London, where it finds constables without guns, and suspects who are gentler and more polite than they tend to be in America. SUNDAY Paul Rodriguez: Behind Bars (Fox, 10-11 p.m.): You're a stand-up comic and you're looking for a place to do your act. How about San Quentin? Comedian and talk-show host Rodriguez is back there for the second time, offering laughs and rap music by Ice-T. Rodriguez, who says he's a former East Los Angeles gang member, also conducts prison-yard interviews to probe the feelings of the inmates.

MONDAY American Masters (PBS, 9-10 p.m.): The image of the American West owes a lot to an artist who went to the Yale Art School and didn't move West until he was 20. "Frederic Remington: The Truth of Other Days," narrated by Gregory Peck, tells of the man whose rendering of Native Americans and cowboys still shapes our vision of that time and place.

TUESDAY Soul by the Sea (A&E cable, 9-11 p.m.): A mix of styles - like rap and reggae - mark 30 years of Motown in a concert from Montego Bay, Jamaica. Songs by Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, Ziggy Marley, and other stars of soul accompany interviews that trace the history of the Motown sound.

Please check local listings, especially on PBS.
