WORTH NOTING ON TV

* FRIDAY

NBA finals (NBC, 9 p.m., EDT to conclusion): In Game 2 of a best-of-seven series for the championship, the New York Knicks face the Houston Rockets in Houston's Summit. Houston won Game 1 on Wednesday night, 85 to 78. * SUNDAY

Amelia Earhart: The Final Flight (TNT, 8-10 p.m.):

Diane Keaton says that when she was 12 years old, a neighbor told her she looked like Amelia Earhart. Not until she was older did Keaton detect the resemblance her neighbor had noticed, but it inspired an interest in the famed flyer.

Now Keaton is portraying the legendary figure lost in a 1937 flight over the South Pacific under circumstances never definitively explained. Two fairly recent books, a TV documentary, and an ad campaign have focused on Earhart, who was almost reclusive in her shyness yet was launched into the media spotlight by her publisher husband.

Bruce Dern plays Earhart's husband, and Roger Hauer is the navigator who was flying with Earhart when she disappeared.

The Tonys (CBS, 9-11 p.m., EDT. Delayed in some areas - please check local listings):

A distinguished pair of actors - Anthony Hopkins and Amy Irving - co-host the 48th edition of theater's big night. It's typically the most interesting and sometimes the most civilized of the major awards ceremonies. The show is carried live from New York's Gershwin Theater and includes 20 competitive categories, as well as the Regional Theatre Award and other honors.

Numbers will be offered from the four nominated musicals: The songs from ``Beauty and the Beast'' and ``Passion'' will be done as they are on the Broadway stage. Special material will be used to represent music from ``A Grand Night for Singing'' and ``Cyrano,'' which have closed.

NBA finals (NBC, 9 p.m., EDT to conclusion): In Game 3, the New York Knicks play the Houston Rockets in New York's Madison Square Garden.
