Tonight he meets arch rival and former title holder Vito Antuofermo in a scheduled 15-rounder, live from the Boston Garden. It’s a matchup between two sluggers who hit hard and often. They last touched gloves late in 1979 when Antuofermo (46-5-2,19 KOs) retained his championship against Hagler (51-2-2, 42 KOs). After their bout, each thought he had won and each wanted a rematch. This time it should be a battle. Barry Tompkins and Larry Merchant offer expert commentary. June 13 A lighthearted comedy spoof of the ways that people amuse themselves. And all seen through the eyes of that uniquely imaginative funnyman, David Letterman (Johnny Carson’s frequent guest host). Hilarious highlights include: rafting on the Los Angeles “River”; a tour of the movie stars’ homes in Beverly Hills; Fun Center in Hollywood; and “fun” places to eat. It’s a Letterman laugh fest, and you’ll love every minute of it. June 12,15,20,23,28 11

Variety. You get movies: top flight movies. Sports: live and same-day events like this month’s Hagler title fight and Wimbledon (which continues into July). There are fascinating and informative shows, too, like Consumer Reports Presents and What on Earth? Exclusive HBO productions 22 like Remember When, the sequel series to last year’s award-winning Time Was. HBO Late Night on weekend and holiday eves offers special adult fare for the night owl. Late afternoon and early evening family films became a reality earlier this year, too. Of course, there are still the obvious reasons for being an HBO household. You get movies unedited and uninterrupted by commercials. And HBO schedules programs a number of times each month so you can plan your viewing and not miss a show just because you have something else to do one night. But probably the very best reason for choosing Home Box Office is the variety of the programming. No question about it: Variety is the spice of HBO.
