For Reba McEntire, there is no ploy too crass, no gimmick too shamelessly hokey, no gesture too ridiculously over the top. The woman will stop at nothing. "Tonight I'm getting to do the very thing I love the most," said country music's bestselling female artist from the Spectrum stage Saturday night. "And that's entertaining nice folks like y'all. " You couldn't say she didn't put all her guile and showmanship into the task. (The question of whether her heart was in it was another matter.

Reba McEntire, the pint-size strawberry blonde who's been named top female vocalist four times running by the Academy of Country Music, is an Oklahoma cowgirl with big-city ambitions. "Whoever's in New England," a 1986 "countrypolitan" ballad sung from the perspective of a wife suspicious about her husband's frequent business trips to Massachusetts, broke new ground for McEntire. As expected, Northerners identified with the scenario and the locale. Increasingly, her tour bus traveled the Northeast.

* MALIBU COUNTRY. 8:30 p.m. Friday, 6 ABC.   I'M NOT sure what it is about Reba McEntire that screams "wronged wife," but the singer-actress embarks on her second sitcom Friday in a role that once again has her starting over after marriage to a cheater. In ABC's "Malibu Country," she's doing the leaving, taking her kids and her mother (Lily Tomlin) and fleeing Nashville, Tenn. - and her country star husband - for the Malibu, Calif., house she never even knew she had, hoping to restart the singing career she put aside years earlier.

It's a Reba McEntire world. The red-headed entertainment empress was the top nominee-getter when the contenders for Country Music Association awards were announced yesterday by George Jones and Pam Tillis at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. McEntire - whose current Read My Mind and double platinum Greatest Hits Volume Two are both in the Billboard Country Top 20 - snagged six nominations, including the prestigious Entertainer of the Year, which she won in 1986. And the unremittingly perky Oklahoman's further nominations in the Female Vocalist, Album, Single, Music Video and Vocal Event categories (the latter three for "Does He Love You," her catfight duet with Linda Davis)

It's getting to be that Bob Dylan is as consistent a summer attraction as the Beach Boys. (The Boys, incidentally, are playing Great Adventure on Sunday.) For the last two years, Dylan has played Philadelphia backed by bands with contemporary clout - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and the Grateful Dead. Wednesday at the Mann Music Center, he'll be fronting a guitar-bass-drums trio headed by G. E. Smith of the Saturday Night Live band. (Marshall Crenshaw, originally slotted to play bass, reportedly dropped out of the tour to begin writing his next album.

Tremors, rumbling into a multiplex near you, is a glorious scare-'em-up in the tradition of 1950s horror flicks - part Them!, part Attack of the Crab Monsters. (And part Dune as reinterpreted by Mad magazine.) In the unceasing wake of graphic slasher pics and party-hardy pubescent parodies, this low-budget tale of giant, smelly worms devouring whole desert towns is both scary and funny: You'll scream, because the director (Ron Underwood) knows how to creep up on you when you're least expecting it; you'll laugh, because the lines are sharp (by Steven Spielberg scripters Brent Maddock and S. S. Wilson)

For a guy who claims that his musical awakening came when hearing Don McLean's poignant "Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)" on an episode of The Simpsons , there's nothing cartoonish about Jake Bugg. The 19-year-old from Nottingham, England, old for his age, makes music and writes lyrics too bracing and swaggeringly working-class to be dippy. Animated and cocksure, yes, but never comical. From the erstwhile sound of Sunday's way-sold-out World Cafe Live gig, filled with young teens and elder punks, Bugg pulls inspiration from Bo Diddley, Massachusetts -era Bee Gees, early Dylan, Buddy Holly, and the folksy Marc Bolan (a la Tyrannosaurus Rex )

Welcome to Malibu Country , the land that time forgot. Reba's sitcom, getting a late and lethargic jump on the new season, is supposedly set in the present, but it's enveloped in such a strong '70s and '80s haze, you'll swear you're watching it on Betamax. The premise is that Reba (the country singer formerly known as Reba McEntire) is a country singer named Reba McKenzie who put her career on hold to raise her two kids, Cash (Justin Prentice) and June (Juliette Angelo). Too bad the title Carter Country was already taken - by a '70s sitcom starring Victor French and the immortal Guich Koock.

IT HAPPENS every May: The broadcast networks announce their schedules for the following season and it's as if we're seeing double. It usually takes three to declare a trend, but TV seasons tend to get filled like Noah's Ark, with new (or recycled) ideas arriving in pairs. A year ago, it was '60s dramas — NBC's "Playboy Club" and ABC's "Pan Am" — and shows in which fairy tales turned out to be true — NBC's "Grimm" and ABC's "Once Upon a Time. " If there was any surprise, it wasn't that the "Mad Men" wannabes didn't make it to Season 2, but that the other two did. (And that CBS ordered its own '60s drama, "Vegas," for this fall.)

Whether you're an awards fan or not, even the most casual viewer of the last several Grammy shows would have had to imagine that Lady Antebellum had taken over as hosts. Those broadcasts found Nashville's finest in front of the cameras, winning song of the year and record of the year for "Need You Now," as well as the prize for best country album. The American Country Music Awards? Lady Antebellum won top vocal group, song of the year, and single of the year. It's almost annoying how ubiquitous the band is during awards season.

ABC'S GOING a little bit country this fall. On Wednesdays at 10, Connie Britton ("Friday Night Lights") will star in the drama "Nashville" as a country-music star whose career is beginning to flag and whose record label thinks the answer might be having her join forces with a younger singer (Hayden Panettiere, "Heroes"), who turns out to be a bit of a schemer. Callie Khouri ("Thelma & Louise") wrote the pilot, which was directed by documentarian R.J. Cutler ("The War Room"). In November, actual country- music star (and sitcom veteran)

The god of television is, in my imagination, a rugged cowboy type who looks and sounds a lot like Lorne Greene during the Bonanza era. Whatever tube deities you worship, it is time to give them thanks for the extraordinary programming bounty they have provided us on Sunday night. Amen and pass the remote. This is a feast beyond all reckoning - or recording, for that matter. Just don't make the rookie mistake of filling up on Shahs of Sunset reruns before the main courses are served.

The most thankless task in show business - besides being Chelsea Handler's sidekick - has to be hosting an awards show. You simply cannot win. Ask Ricky Gervais. Last year he was widely reviled for being too mean, too insulting on the Golden Globes. This year he was pilloried for being too bland. How are you supposed to take direction from that? Whatever you're doing, we don't like it. It's like having Goldilocks as a porridge- taster. Good luck getting that temperature just right.
