USA (Wed., Jan. 22, 9 P.M. ET)


A woman (Jane Seymour) picks up the phone in the kitchen one day and, to her chagrin, overhears her husband on the extension groaning his way through a phone-sex encounter. The next day he disappears amid hints of foul play and shady business deals. Seymour reluctantly retains a private detective (Parker Stevenson) and with his help locates the call girl (Beth Broderick) who had been the missing husband's partner in aural sex.

This is a flabby, implausible mystery with a dull denouement. The fault lies not in the stars, however. Stevenson brings a slack yet engaging charm to his role. But the movie's best asset is Seymour, the limpid flower who is still TV's most ravishing damsel in distress.
