Rookie of the Year (FOX, 8-10 p.m.): It's one of those childhood dreams: to pitch for a major league baseball team. For Little Leaguer Henry Rowengartner (Thomas Ian Nicholas), it's a dream come true when his arm suddenly develops a knack for a 100 m.p.h. fastball.

Kellie Martin (''Life Goes On'') stars as Fusia in this drama that was filmed in the Czech Republic.


Living Single (FOX, 8-8:30 p.m.): The Roaring Twenties and Harlem Renaissance set the stage for a special episode of this comedy, in which Kyle fights to save a historic Harlem jazz club.

48 Hours (CBS, 10-11 p.m.): With many voters dissatisfied with this year's Republican presidential candidates, the newsmagazine probes why some presidential aspirants shy away from the race.

Muppets Tonight! (ABC, 8:30-9 p.m.): First a hit movie, ''Muppet Treasure Island,'' now a new TV series, similar to ''The Muppet Show'' of the '70s: The Muppets (Kermit, Miss Piggy et al.) are back to entertaining families. In ''Muppets Tonight!'' the slapstick and skits take place at KMUP, where a new character, Clifford, hosts an always-unpredictable evening variety show. Actress Michelle Pfeiffer guest stars in the premiere episode, which pokes plenty of fun at other TV shows.
