"Rock 'n' roll's a loser's game," Mott the Hoople's singer, Ian Hunter, sighed 20 years ago on an album that actually was a substantial winner. Sitting in a club in Norman, Okla., a few days ago, waiting for a gig to start, John Terlesky sounded as if he knew exactly what Hunter had in mind. Terlesky, who goes by the initials J.T.

After sitcoms, TV likes to fill its time with social evils. Like "When He's Not a Stranger," a cautionary tale on campus rape. It airs tonight at 9 on Channels 2 and 8. The movie, courtesy of executive producer Don Ohlmeyer and writer-director John Gray, is about a dreamy frosh named Lyn (Annabeth Gish, who made such a strong debut in the feature "Mystic Pizza" as the innocent kid sister; she's appropriately vulnerable and distraught here).

Baby, baby, baby, they're out of time--but so what? With fuzzed-out guitars screaming and buzzing, and Doors/Modern Lovers-style organ wailing, the Original Sins sound as if they stepped out of a time warp from 1966. In fact, if they had been fortunate enough to have lived back then, these musicians from Bethlehem, Pa., well may have been at the forefront of the garage-psychedelic movement and would be as fondly remembered now for lovably basic and trashy rock as the Seeds or the Count Five.

CBS began this season with the female homicide detectives of the short-lived "Angel Street." Now ABC is completing it with the female rookies of "Sirens," a watchable yet undistinctive drama series about three fresh-from-the-academy policewomen, premiering at 10 tonight on Channels 7, 3, 10 and 42. The first episode is low on intensity but . . . pleasant.

I applaud Masha Hamilton's article "Perils of Profit in U.S.S.R." (Part A, March 31). It is clear that Mikhail Gorbachev and perestroika's greatest adversary is not Yegor Ligachev or other "hard-liners," but rather is seven decades' inculcation of Marxist-Leninist ideology into the Soviet people. It is the ideas of these men, not their disciples, that may ultimately defeat Gorbachev in his attempt to save the state they created. Lenin may have failed economically but he has succeeded philosophically.

If your idea of TV heaven is watching Suzanne Pleshette and Debbie Reynolds duke it out (figuratively speaking), then CBS' "Battling for Baby" (at 9 p.m. Sunday on Channels 2 and 8) is a hot ticket. Pleshette and Reynolds play estranged childhood friends whose daughter and son, respectively, marry. The birth of the couple's first baby intensifies bad feelings as Marie (Pleshette) and Helen (Reynolds) compete for the infant's affection.

Re "A Criticized Sharon Defends F-16 Raids," May 21: In six years there have been four Israeli prime ministers. Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated because of his peace proposals. Benjamin Netanyahu had his own idea about how to solve the Palestinian conflict and had his own set of agreements while expanding settlements. Then Ehud Barak came with still another peace idea. Now there is Ariel Sharon and his belligerence. I do not think that the Palestinians can live forever and dance to the tune of constantly changing Israeli policies.

Remember those sweet-souled beach-blanket movies from the '60s, where the guys slept on their surfboards and the dolls had a different bikini for each day of the week? If you slipped one of those old films into a time-machine and set the clock for 1987, the result would be "The Allnighter" (citywide), a lame sex comedy that's loaded with hip teen lingo but utterly lacking in any irreverence or insight. The story itself is as old as--well, Annette Funicello.
