FOX HOPES ITS OSCAR CAN PUT A DENT IN THE OSCARS' RATINGS

          Fox Sports will air "Oscar De La Hoya's Big Fight
     Night" on March 23 -- the same night as ABC's broadcast of
     the Academy Awards.  The telecast is being dubbed "Oscar
     versus 'The Oscars.'"  The card, which will air live from
     8:00-10:00pm ET, will take place at the Foxwoods Resort
     Casino in Mashantucket, CT and feature four fights.  Fox's
     James Brown will call the action, and De La Hoya will serve
     as an analyst.  Top Rank will also promote the bouts (Fox). 
          THE ICE MELTS: USA TODAY's Rudy Martzke reports that
     Fox's James Brown has the "first joint interview" with Nancy
     Kerrigan and Tonya Harding which will air on Fox on February
     5 (USA TODAY, 1/12).  The show will be titled "Lillehammer
     Revisited" and be seen in prime-time (THE DAILY).
