WORTH NOTING ON TV

* TUESDAY

My Cousin Vinny (Fox, 8-10 p.m.): Marisa Tomei won an Oscar for her supporting role in this movie about Vinny Gambini (Joe Pesci), a rookie lawyer from Brooklyn who goes to Alabama to represent his cousin (Ralph Macchio), who has been mistakenly accused of murder. Tomei plays Mona Lisa Vito, the lawyer's tough-talking fiancee, who knows as much about cars as she does about Brooklyn-girl fashion.

* WEDNESDAY

ABC's World's Funniest Commercials (ABC, 8-9 p.m.): Leslie Nielsen of ``Naked Gun'' fame hosts this special that looks at some of the world's cleverest, award-winning commercials, many of which have never been broadcast on American television.

Ice Wars: The USA vs. the World: (CBS, 8-10 p.m.): Figure-skating fans will delight in this competition featuring an international team of Olympic gold medalists (Oksana Baiul, Katarina Witt, Victor Petrenko, and Kurt Browning) and an American team of Nancy Kerrigan, Kristi Yamaguchi, Brian Boitano, and Paul Wylie. Tonight is the short program; Saturday is the long program. Scott Hamilton provides commentary.

The Battle of the Bulge (PBS, 8:30-10 p.m.): PBS's ``American Experience'' takes a look back at the single biggest and bloodiest battle Americans have ever fought. On Dec. 16, 1944, some 30 German divisions roared across an 85-mile Allied front in a surprise attack. More than 80,000 Americans were killed, wounded, or captured. The 90-minute film by Thomas Lennon looks at the battle through the eyes of United States soldiers and combat officers in the field -- the young men charged with holding the line. Who were these soldiers and how do survivors view the battle 50 years later?

Last Days of the Revolution (PBS, 10-11 p.m.): This documentary focuses on Cuba's economic and political deterioration; US policy toward the island nation, specifically the embargo; and how the recent mass exodus from Cuba has influenced US immigration policy.
