Reruns to Rewatch

March 12, 1995

Veteran actor-producer-writer Sheldon Leonard has penned his autobiography And the Show Goes On: Broadway and Hollywood Adventures (Limelight Editions, $25). His memoirs explore his early career as an actor, as well as his experiences as director-producer of such series as "The Dick Van Dyke Show," "Make Room for Daddy," "Lassie," "The Andy Griffth Show" and "I Spy."

Nick at Nite Time: Classic TV Collectible Wristwatches (Sunday at 11 p.m.; Monday at 10 p.m.; Wednesday at 2:30 a.m.; Friday at 2:30 a.m. and Saturday at midnight on Nickelodeon) is Nick's latest home-shopping special, this one hawking nostalgia with today's time of day. The half-hour program offers an exclusive set of watches based on six classic shows: "Bewitched," "I Dream of Jeannie," "The Dick Van Dyke Show," "Taxi," "Get Smart" and "The Twilight Zone."

Perry Mason: Perry's Wild Kingdom (Monday at 10:05 a.m. on TBS) features the ferocious episodes: "The Case of the Perjured Parrot" and "The Case of the Grinning Gorilla."

June Lockhart guests on Bewitched (Tuesday at 8:30 p.m on Nickelodeon) in an episode in which Samantha tries to boost the confidence of a little boy.

Don Galloway ("Ironside"), Veronica Hamel ("Hill Street Blues") and Don Johnson ("Miami Vice") headline the delightfully awful 1978 TV thriller Ski Lift to Death (Tuesday at 12:30 a.m. on TBS).

The Disney Channel repeats Gene Kelly ... An American in Pasadena (Friday at 10 p.m.), a 1978 CBS special taped at Pasadena's Ambassador Auditorium featuring the movies' star hoofer performing with the leading ladies he worked with over the years: Gloria DeHaven, Cyd Charisse, Betty Garrett, Kathryn Grayson, Janet Leigh and Lucille Ball.

A pre-"Cheers" Ted Danson guests on Taxi (Friday at 10:30 p.m. on Nickelodeon) in an episode in which Elaine has a very bad hair day.

The Museum of Television and Radio concludes its annual festival in Los Angeles with tributes to "Homicide: Life on the Street" (Tuesday at 7 p.m.); "Melrose Place" (Wednesday at 7 p.m.); "A Tribute to William Sackheim" (Thursday at 7 p.m.); "Magnum, P.I."
