Actors may claim to be dying for parts, but "Wings" co-star Crystal Bernard came closer than most. Her brush with the Grim Reaper didn't keep her from a crucial audition that landed her the role of Helen on the popular NBC series, though. While working on a television movie, Bernard fell asleep in her trailer and woke up in a hospital emergency room, suffering from carbon-monoxide poisoning. "They found me on the bathroom floor," she recalls.

If God had meant NBC to continue flying at 9:30 Thursday nights, He wouldn't have given it "Wings." This trial sitcom premieres tonight (on Channels 4, 36 and 39) with a few clever lines, but not enough to compensate for its stock premise concerning the relationship between two brothers. The setting is Nantucket, where Joe Hackett (Timothy Daly) operates a tiny commuter airline from a tiny airport inhabited by the usual broadly played supporting characters. But . . . uh oh.

8pm Musical "White Trash Wins Lotto," singer-songwriter Andy Prieboy's satirical musical skewering the Axl Rose saga and the music biz in general, started as a whim and became a hit when it was presented in bare-bones form periodically at Largo during the last year. The show now has put on fancier duds for a bigger production at the Roxy, with an eye toward an extended engagement next year. * "White Trash Wins Lotto" at the Roxy, 9009 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood. Thursday-Saturday, 8 p.m.

How's this for an idea? Get a bunch of country music singers--Linda Davis, Billy Dean, Crystal Bernard and Jim Lauderdale--together with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and have them do some music from "Oklahoma!" Sounds good in principle. The Rodgers & Hammerstein masterpiece is a certifiable piece of rustic Americana. It may not exactly be Nashville, but it sure is close to country. Close enough in principle, perhaps, but not always in performance Friday evening.

Failing total recall for 1982's "Slumber Party Massacre," this reviewer retains the memory of a darkly humorous vision and a breathtaking pace in the no-budget slasher written by Rita Mae Brown and directed by Amy Jones. "Slumber Party Massacre II" (selected theaters) proves "II" can be made as cheaply as "I"--and for a fraction of the creative investment. It's not particularly the kind of achievement for the record books.
