WORTH NOTING ON TV

SUNDAY

Super Bowl XXVII (NBC, 6 p.m. E.T., to conclusion): American television's most-watched program - sports or otherwise - airs live this year from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. The contest between the Buffalo Bills and the Dallas Cowboys should reach somewhere around 120 million viewers in the United States, and a staggering 750 million to 1 billion people in about 70 other countries.

NBC's game plan is almost as extensive as the teams', with some 15 cameras, including ones on the 25- and 50-yard lines and in many other spots (including the usual blimp). Dick Enberg will do the play-by-play and Bob Trumpy the analysis.

This year the halftime will be nearly as notable - and even more so in some people's eyes - as the game itself. Pop superstar Michael Jackson will stand on the field with thousands of children and sing his new anthem "Heal the World" in a spectacle that promises to pack a strong emotional wallop. Produced by Radio City Music Hall (they also did the halftime show a few years ago), the event will give Jackson a powerful way to further the cause of his Heal the World Foundation, dedicated to helping childre n.

Meanwhile, "Super Bowl Live" - an NBC pregame show airing 3:30-6 p.m., E.T. - will offer what they're calling "the total experience of Super Sunday" - meaning everything from musical performances to a pregame dissection.
