WEDNESDAY (OCT. 12) BRINGS TWO classic cable concatenations. First MTV presents Jimmy Page/Robert Plant (Unledded) (10 p.m. ET), a reunion of the main men from the '70s' most influential rock group, Led Zeppelin. Segments of the special were shot in London, Wales and Morocco. The music, including covers of "Kashmir," "Since I've Been Loving You," and "Gallows Pole," is still remarkably heady.

Then on the season-ending episode of The Larry Sanders Show (HBO, 10:30 p.m. ET) our favorite talk show host (Garry Shandling) is strung out on painkillers. Helping nurse him through a cranky withdrawal is a profane Roseanne, who turns Larry's house into a single-patient rehab. You know the old Hollywood saw: First comes detox, then comes marriage.... Hey, it worked for Liz and Larry!
