PICK: When your other screen credits include flicks such as Vibes (with Jeff Goldblum) and Life With Mikey (an obscure '93 film with fellow fading star Michael J. Fox) the chance to guest star on a hit sit-com such as Mad About You (Ten, 8pm) must have seemed like a God-send to Cyndi Lauper. She turns an impressive performance as Ira's long-lost love interest, Marianne. While she hasn't got the dulcet tones of Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder tempering her nasal Noo Yawk accent, Lauper shines as the bleached-blonde, money-laden mistress of Ira's past. Young married couples beware: watching Jamie and Paul is tantamount to a half-hour of masochism. They are so witty and romantic, it's enough to make even the least cynical among us violently ill.
