WORTH NOTING ON TV

By Judy Nichols / August 29, 1995



* WEDNESDAY The Mix - 'Hall of Fame Week' Edition (VH1, 8-11 p.m.): For those who don't want to miss a beat of the grand opening of the Rock and Roll Hame of Fame in Cleveland, VH1 has things covered. The fun begins with this special edition of VH1's nightly video program, hosted by Amy Scott from Cleveland. The show, which continues the next two evenings at the same time, features videos by inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, including the Grateful Dead, the Beach Boys, Marvin Gaye, the Doors, John Lennon, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. On Friday at 12:30 p.m., VH1 televises the hall of fame's ribbon-cutting ceremony live. Then, on Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m., the channel will broadcast last year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 10th-annual induction ceremony, with breakaways to live action in Cleveland. Immediately following that is a two-hour lead-in to ''The Concert for the Hall of Fame.'' (The concert is being aired on HBO.) VH1 is also planning special editions of ''The Number Ones,'' premiering Saturday at 5 p.m., and ''4 on the Floor,'' premiering Sunday at 11:30 a.m. * THURSDAY The Crew (FOX, 8:30-9 p.m.): Weary rerun-watchers take heart: The new TV season is here. ''The Crew'' is FOX's first series debut for the fall - and is one of many ''Friends'' clones due out this season. This one is racier than its predecessor, and the characters are much more than just friends. The show focuses on four young flight attendants in Miami's South Beach. The theme song for series, ''Where the Day Takes You,'' was recorded by Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman of Prince fame. Also on Thursday, FOX presents season premieres of ''Living Single'' (8:30-9 p.m.) and the gritty ''New York Undercover'' (9-10 p.m.), with musical guest star Al Jarreau. Please check local listings for these programs.
