Director Jonathan Nossiter gets more excited about wines than he does about movies. He's seated in a fashionable SoHo restaurant called Balthazar, rhapsodizing about the wine list owner Keith McNally allowed him to set up. He's wearing a gap-toothed grin and a short-sleeve tropical shirt with a pin where a button should be. "This list," he says, running his eyes down the menu as if it were the Gutenberg Bible, "I started working on this list in October.

Preserving our film heritage is an arduous, time-consuming task. Kinetic and ever evolving, film preservation runs the gamut from high-tech digital restoration to hand-picking dirt off a negative. The many preserved films screening at the TCM Classic Film Festival — running Thursday through Sunday at the Grauman's Chinese, the Mann Chinese 6 and the Egyptian Theatre — have all been restored to their former glory through one means or another. The festival opens at the venerable Grauman's with the premiere of Warner Bros.

You'll have to do a lot of channel surfing Sunday night to catch all the new TV movies in the offing. * TNT premieres "For Better or Worse," a comedy starring and directed by "Seinfeld's" Jason Alexander, which had a brief, limited theatrical release last year, at 5 and 7 p.m. * John Schneider and teen idol Devon Sawa survive a tornado disaster in the Family Channel's "Night of the Twister," at 7 p.m.

To direct a TV movie would be regarded as slumming by most feature film directors of the stature of Blake Edwards. On the evidence of Edwards' "Justin Case" (Sunday at 7 p.m., Channels 7, 3, 10 and 42), it appears that Edwards himself is not too excited by the idea. This is strictly formulaic television. The gimmick is a ghost (George Carlin), a former private eye.

Theatrical movies don't tend to have much ratings punch by the time they get to network television these days, but Steven Seagal's "Under Siege" managed to come out on top for ABC Sunday night. The 1992 action flick attracted about 19.2 million viewers, according to prime-time network ratings released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research.

CBS' "The Last Don II" possessed less firepower than its predecessor but still packed enough heat to gun down the Sunday movie competition, based on results for last week issued Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. The miniseries sequel, starring Jason Gedrick, easily out-muscled NBC's movie "The Long Island Incident," about Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy, and "Waiting to Exhale" on ABC, but it couldn't rub out Fox's "The X-Files."

CBS, trailing first-place NBC in prime-time ratings so far this season, said Monday that it will temporarily pull "Trapper John, M.D." and Flip Wilson's new "Charlie & Company" series from its roster in January, and will install a "CBS Sunday Movie" series. The new two-hour movie block will premiere Jan. 12 with "Rockabye," starring Valerie Bertinelli.

On one episode of "It's Garry Shandling's Show," Rob Reiner, unable to find work as an actor, walked into Shandling's living room and asked for a role on his offbeat sitcom. "This 'Meathead' thing from 'All in the Family' really has typecast me," he said. Shandling replied, "I know what you mean. I'm sort of typecast as Garry Shandling." "Oh, that's far worse," Reiner deadpanned. "You're digging yourself a hole you'll never get out of."
