Fox skeds stunts, Bond for sweeps

Fox Broadcasting’s February sweeps lineup highlights include a three-episode arc of “Martin” in which viewer calls will determine the story’s outcome, as well as theatricals “Licence to Kill” and “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead.”

Also on the docket for the all-important ratings month are themed storylines on the network’s ensemble dramas and a Christina Applegate-hosted evening of programming designed to counter NBC’s NBA All-Star contest.

Viewers of Fox’s “Martin” will determine how the three-installment segment will end by calling a 900 number, which will raise money for charity. Storyline revolves around an argument between Martin and his girlfriend. Viewers will be asked who’s right. Episodes will air Feb. 4, 11 and 18, with polling to take place between Feb. 11-16.

On Feb. 21, when NBC is airing the All-Star game, Applegate will host “Fox’s All-Star Lineup.” The night will start with the broadcast debut of the Applegate starrer “Don’t Tell Mom,” leading into “Married … With Children,””In Living Color” and “Cops.”

Feb. 21, film reviewers Siskel & Ebert will host “In Living Color’s””Best of Men on ….”
