WORTH NOTING ON TV

By

* THURSDAY

Larry King Live (CNN, 9-10 p.m., EST): The format of this talk show may be a partial peek at TV's future, or at least at the gabby global village promised by the coming media age of fiber-optic superhighways and international satellite transmission. At the moment, it's the only highly visible, live call-in program seen around the world. On this edition, viewers from various countries will get a chance to call in questions to the president of the United States. Their conversations will be heard in more than 140 million homes in some 200 countries.

President Clinton was King's guest six months ago, and this time he appears just one year after his swearing-in ceremony. He will be on the air (or on the spot?) for an hour, answering questions - from host King and from callers - on topics that will no doubt include the president's recent European trip, along with some pressing - and possibly pesky - domestic issues.

* FRIDAY

Bill Moyers' Journal: Money Talks (PBS, 9-10 p.m.): And when it does, politicians listen, according to this program, a combination documentary and discussion. It follows the money trail during the first year of the Clinton administration, asking not so much what political goals are being sought, but what money has to do with achieving them. The program assesses money's influence on administration policy, looking into the prospects for campaign reform and the impact of big business on this issue.

Moyers talks with Democrat William Greider, author and national editor of Rolling Stone magazine; Republican Kevin Phillips, publisher of the American Political Report and author; and Ellen Miller, of the center for Responsive Politics, which keeps track of money's effect on Washington politics. * SUNDAY

Preview of the 103rd Congress (C-Span, 9:30-11 p.m.): Journalists who cover Congress have a round-table discussion on the 1994 legislative agenda, ethical issues, and this year's congressional elections.
