Around the dial: Michael Landon Jr. talks about tonight's NBC tribute to his father when he Sibs stars (from left) Jami Gertz, Marsha Mason, Margaret Colin. 'Sibs' opener has relatively slow start 'Home' has power tools to succeed Home Improvement (8:30 p.m., Channels 12, 2) John Kiesewetter Here's a familiar network TV Television blueprint: Find a distinctive stand-up comedian and build a sitcom around the performer's stage It worked for Bill Cosby and Roseanne Barr Arnold, but not for Jackie Mason and Lenny Clarke. Chances are it will work for Tim Allen, whose routines about the virtues of power tools are the basis for ABC s Home Improvement.

Big deal: After watching CBS' success with first-run theatrical films last year, NBC has bought 1 6 Universal films for broadcast before appearing on cable TV. NBC acquired Kindergarten Cop; Mo' Better Blues; Bill Cosby's Ghost Dad, Susan Sarandon's White Palace; Robert Redford's Havana; Dana Carvey's Opportunity Knocks and Johnny Depp's Cry Baby. NBC also purchased Back to the Future I and (but not ;. The Enquirering Mind: This Enquirering mind wants to know: If the winless Cincinnati Bengals don't beat the Washington Redskins Sunday, will they schedule the UC Bearcats the next Sunday for their bye week? JOHN KIESEWETTER lieves that more horsepower will solve every household problem. His three sons and wife (Patricia Richardson) don't always agree. "Every time you fix something, the fire department shows up," she says. She's also not crazy about her husband's buxom TV helper: "I know what point of view she's there for it's a side view!" Home Improvement, a favorite among most TV critics, apparently has it all likable characters; believable settings; funny writing; and an interesting undercurrent about the men's movement. Sibs (9:30 p.m., Channels 12, 2) Marsha Mason (The Goodbye Girl) stars as Nora Ruscio, who's shipped her son off to college and ready for a peaceful life with her husband Howie (Alex Rocco). Then things change her boss dies; her baby sister Qami Gertz) is jilted by an artist; and her other sister (Margaret Colin) is broke. ,Viewers will find Nora and Howie a comfortable fit. However, getting used to insecure Lily (Gertz) and bitter Audie (Colin) will take some time. They're always barging into the Ruscios' house, often into their bedroom. A second episode airs Sept. 25, when Sibs moves into its time period (9:30 p.m. Wednesday, Channels 12, 2) after Doogie Howser M.D. The series is produced by James L. Brooks and Sam Simon, whose credits include Tracey Ullman and The Simpsons, and Heide Perlman, younger sister of Cheers' Rhea Perlman and a former Ullman writer. Sibs starts out slow, but it should be fun to watch grow.

"He does more in one day than most radio people do in a year or, depending "on the personality, in a lifetime!" Wills says.' Burbank, who has four years remaining on a 10-year WLW-AM contract, became the first person to win back-to-back Mar-conis since the first ones were handed out three years ago. ABC's Paul Harvey, a 1989 winner, also received his second Marconi. Named best personalities (major market) were Mark Gary Burbank's No. 1 on the charts again. WLW-AM's afternoon funnyman won his fourth consecutive Billboard magazine award and second straight Marconi award as radio personality of the year (for his market size) at the National Association of Broadcasters' annual convention in San Francisco last weekend. "He's the most unique radio personality in the country," says Bill Wills, WLW-AM (700 kHz) program director. Burbank was unavailable for comment. Gary Burbank Thompson and Brian Phelps, stars of NBC's Adventures Of Mark And Brian.
