FOR ''Miss Match''

WHY? Silverstone's starring role on NBC's ''Miss Match'' was supposed to be one of 2003's great comeback stories. After all, as divorce lawyer-matchmaker Kate Fox, the 27-year-old actress has proved as delightful and clever as she did nearly a decade ago, when she played a similar character in the movie ''Clueless.'' Plus, her show is a fizzy cocktail that hews closely to the formula of series creator Darren Star's other show, ''Sex and the City'': sex, sociology, and shoe shopping. Unfortunately, Friday night's mismatched ratings battles have seen Silverstone clobbered by rival cuties Amber Tamblyn (''Joan of Arcadia'') and Kelly Ripa (''Hope and Faith''). Maybe a Golden Globe would give Silverstone a fighting chance.
