Popular American titles at the international MIPCOM TV market included ''Caroline in the City'' (an NBC series sold overseas by CBS), ''Touched by an Angel,'' and ''A Streetcar Named Desire'' from CBS.

The network also claims that its ''Central Park West'' series - roundly panned and low in the ratings in the United States - was very much in demand from foreign broadcasters, presumably because it has the reputation of being sexy, glamorous, and scandalous.

Other popular American shows included: ''Nova,'' the science series produced by WGBH Boston for PBS; the movie library from Turner International (''The Heidi Chronicles,'' ''Forget Paris''); new episodes of ''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'' from Westinghouse; ''Oliver's Travels,'' starring Ted Danson, from Hallmark Entertainment; and ''Crimson Tide,'' a new miniseries from Disney International.

For the first time in quite a while, there was no clear runaway among American series - no ''Dallas,'' ''Santa Barbara,'' or ''Dynasty.''
