LIFETIME has made a number of popular, salacious movies since it went on the air, but this time it looked as if it may have gone too far - until a New York judge stepped in. The network was scheduled to air "Romeo Killer: The Christopher Porco Story" this weekend, about a man who killed his father and maimed his mother with an ax, but a judge temporarily banned the showing after Porco sought to stop it. The convicted killer argued that...

7 DAYS OF SEX. 10 p.m. Thursday, Lifetime. Turns out those guys on "The Client List" aren't the only ones looking to get busy on Lifetime. Starting Thursday, couples in need of a marital tune-up will be seen challenging themselves to have sex for seven days (or nights) in a row in the aptly titled "7 Days of Sex. " As we all know by now, "reality" television is all about the challenges. Also the journeys (though the journeys here don't extend much farther than from the kitchen to the bedroom)

D EAR HARRY: About 10 years ago, my employer started a program of lifetime health benefits as an inducement to get some higher-paid employees to retire early. I bit, and I retired at 63. I was to receive a pension of about $1,700 a month with survivorship benefits to my wife of $1,275. The health-insurance benefits were great for us because I developed prostate cancer last year and the costs are wicked. Last week, we were notified that the company was going to phase out the health benefits over the next four years.

NEW YORK - John Walsh is rallying America against the nation's bad guys again. "America's Most Wanted," a Fox Broadcasting mainstay for 23 years before that network canceled it last spring, returns to weekly television at a new address: Lifetime, where it premieres tonight at 9. "It will be basically the same show," said Walsh, whose criminal roundup has led to the capture of more than 1,100 fugitives in the U.S. and 30 countries, plus...

* ARMY WIVES. 9 p.m. Sunday, Lifetime.   IN ALL THE YEARS that I've been watching Lifetime - and I've logged my time with movies about the unwitting brides of serial killers - I've never fully understood what it is the network thinks women want. Jennifer Love Hewitt in lingerie? "The Client List" returns at 10 p.m. Sunday for a second season of "happy ending" massages. Better, I suppose, than taking over a dead husband's drug business (see, "Red Widow"), but I'll be happy when the economy picks up and TV's women are once again able to find honest work.

Rob Lowe is on fire, isn't he? Usually, he contents himself with throwing a few jarringly artificial notes into the otherwise carefully calibrated comic mix on NBC's Parks and Recreation . But this week Lowe also played the title role in the fact-based Lifetime film Drew Peterson: Untouchable , about the former cop from Illinois suspected in the death of his third wife and the disappearance of his fourth. Lowe left no stone unturned in preparing for the part, including, apparently, hiring Mike Ditka's hair-and-mustache stylist.

* DEVIOUS MAIDS. 10 p.m. Sunday, Lifetime. TELENOVELAS have been good to Ana Ortiz. "My grandmother, my dad's mother, watched them religiously," recalled the actress daughter of former City Councilman Angel Ortiz in a phone interview last week. "I never had much interest in them - you know, like [a] snarky teenager - but now I've grown to appreciate them, and I've had wonderful luck with them. " It was the adaptation of "Yo soy Betty, la fea" that became ABC's "Ugly Betty" and gave the University of the Arts grad her big break - a four-year stint as Betty's brash but multifaceted sister, Hilda, that took her well beyond what she once referred to as "sassy sidekick" roles.

If men are from Mars and women from Venus, Doug McCormick must be from some planet in between. He is the successful president of Lifetime, the cable channel that aims its programs most precisely at female viewers. Douglas W. McCormick, 47, has been the president of Lifetime since Feb. 11, 1993, succeeding Thomas F. Burchill, the president since Lifetime was born on Feb. 1, 1984, as a merger of two channels called Daytime and Cable Health Network. Burchill was successful, but McCormick has surpassed him, tripling Lifetime's annual profits and increasing its prime-time viewers by more than 75 percent.

DEAR ABBY: At this time of year I have seen letters in your column from couples describing how they met. I hope you will print ours. During a study break one evening in April 1937, I walked to Bruckner Boulevard Park in the Bronx to sit on a bench. A cyclist whizzed through the center walkway, then stopped and slowly backed up to where I was sitting. "Hello," he said. I responded. "Who are you?" he asked. "I'm Queen Elizabeth the First," I told him without batting an eye. "Well," he replied, "I'm Sir Walter Raleigh - unfortunately, I don't have a coat to place at your feet.

It was 1949 and Julian Nunez-Diaz had recently arrived in New York City. He was 33, with a fourth-grade education, not a word of English, and a family back in Puerto Rico hoping to join him if he found work. A friend suggested he look for a job down in Camden. So that's what he did. "I washed dishes at a restaurant near the Philadelphia [now Ben Franklin] Bridge," recalls Nunez-Diaz, who turns 100 on Friday. "I learned to cook while I worked at Ponzio's in Brooklawn and then I got a job cooking at Kenny's, across from City Hall, in 1956.

When you think of majorettes, you may imagine teens with a marching band, twirling batons. But Dianna Williams, a.k.a. Miss D, says the dance form is a sport all its own. Williams stars on Lifetime's Bring It !, the reality TV show that follows the Dancing Dolls, a majorette team from Jackson, Miss. While Williams coaches the young women to victory time and time again, drama always seems to bubble up throughout the series, whether because of internal conflict or rivalries with nearby dance studios.

It was, after so long, her moment. And so it was a moment for all of them, ushered in with a most basic and loving gesture: a daughter returning the favor of a mother's love. "This," Chelsea Clinton said, "is the story of my mother. " In an arena with tens of thousands of supporters, before millions of viewers, she spoke softly. Her tender stories of a mother's sensible advice about imaginary triceratops, of being a child who knew the "feeling of being valued and loved" stilled the crowd.

At an LGBT delegate luncheon Wednesday, Chelsea Clinton lit into the Republicans, calling the rhetoric out of their convention in Cleveland "divisive, degrading, demeaning. " "I thought about what I found most offensive last week - it's hard to pick just one part," the soft-spoken Clinton said, stepping into the convention spotlight in a warm-up to her speech Thursday introducing her mom, Hillary Clinton. "What I actually found most offensive was the open embrace of conversion therapy in the Republican platform, in other words child abuse," she said, referring to the medically discredited theory that gay people can be "converted.

It's the athletes they remember most. The Penn Relays, in its 122nd running this year, are notable for the thousands of fans who swamp the University of Pennsylvania's Franklin Field in their team colors for three days every spring. The Relays are known for "Wooo Corner," the stretch of track approaching the finish line where fans gather in the stands to cheer and yell 'Wooo' as their runners speed by. They are known for memorable rainstorms and beautiful sun-splashed April afternoons.

11.22.63. Monday, Hulu. His character in Hulu's new Stephen King series 11.22.63 is a time-traveler, but James Franco is in no hurry himself to take leave of the 21st century. "There are great things about the past, and there are horrible things about the past. I was probably born in the right time," Franco told a small group of reporters last month after a Hulu news conference. He's probably right. It's hard to imagine a movie star in the early '60s — where Franco's Jake Epping goes in 11.22.63 to try to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy — would have made the kind of career choices the 37-year-old Franco occasionally has, including a longtime recurring role on the daytime soap General Hospital, and the recent agreement to remake the 1996 Tori Spelling movie  Mother, May I Sleep with Danger for Lifetime.
