At The Movies, Lost in Space (right) speeds past Titanic as the No. 1 film, ending the ship’s $530 million cruise at the top. On TV, ER, Seinfeld, Veronica’s Closet, Friends, and Just Shoot Me comprise NBC’s Thursday-night lineup—and the week’s top five shows. In Music, Celine Dion is a double threat as the Titanic soundtrack edges out her latest, Let’s Talk About Love, on Billboard’s album chart. And In The News, Sonny Bono’s widow, Mary, defeats Waltons alum Ralph Waite and others in a special election to fill the congressional seat vacated after Sonny’s fatal skiing accident.
