D-4Television THE CINCINNATI I NQIURFR Wednesday. September 25, 199 1 . X "V . - , v '! L r ,-. , ... ., .i i- , , ,,., Teri Garr ... as evil Denise Margaret Whitton ... as good Genny Garr's 'Good & Evil' is short on the good Doogie Howser M.D. (9 p.m., Channels 12, 2): Doogie does it with Wanda. Anything But Love (1 0 p.m., Channels 12, 2): Marty and Hannah grow closer, with a little help from their friends. Good &Evil (10:30 p.m., Channels 12, 2): Susan Harris' disappointing Soap-style comedy with Teri Garr and Margaret Whitton. WKRC-AM news: News director Richard Hunt, fired Friday, won't be replaced. The position will be eliminated in an economy move, says Jim Bryant, WKRC-AM and WKRQ-FM general manager. He says program director Dave Mason will supervise the news staff. Channel 12 news: Weekend anchor Dave Burchell and new anchor Stephanie Riggs will co-anchor Channel 1 2's 5 p.m. news Oct. 1 , replacing Rob Braun and Kit Andrews. Braun and Andrews will remain on the 5:30 , and 1 1 p.m. news. Riggs, from Sacramento, will fill in for Andrews during her maternity leave. No word on who will replace Burchell as weekend anchor. Around the dial: B.B. King guest stars on CBS' new Teech (8:30 p.m. today, Channels 9, 7) . . ., Burning Bed star Farrah Fawcett hosts "Prisoners Of Wedlock," a one-hour domestic violence report, on Your Family Matters (9 p.m., Lifetime cable), to be followed by Burning Bed at 10 p.m Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master makes its broadcast TV debut today (9 p.m., Channel 64). The Enquirering Mind: This Enquirering mind wants to know: If you ran Channel 5, would you invite Gordy Coleman back for another Cincinnati Reds' TV season? For the record, WLWT aired its final game last night. SportsChannel televises tonight's game from Atlanta; Friday's home game; and an Oct. 4 game from San Diego but you wouldn't know that in Warner Cableland. This Enquirering mind also wants to know: How can Warner Cable run ads boasting that "we cover the bases like no one else can," when it has ignored the Reds' cable TV package for two years? Is it time to launch an assault on Time Warner and SportsChannel America executives in New York? JOHN KIESEWETTER Enquirer TV critic John Kiesewetter continues his preview of the fall TV season. Good & Evil (10:30 p.m., Channels 12, 2) No Soap here. There's little good about ABC's Good & Evil. Susan Harris, creator of Soap, The Golden Girls and Benson, fails in her attempt to lather up some laughs with Teri Garr and Margaret Whitton. Garr stars as evil Denise, who will stop at nothing and drop everything (often her clothes) to get her way. Whitton's Genny is the saint, so dedicated to microbiology experiments that she tests vaccines on herself. They're both vying for their mother's job running the family cosmetic company. Denise expects that day is near, because her mother (Marian Seldes) said she'd step down at age 65. "I said, 'When I looked 65!" her mother says. They're surrounded by all kinds of mixed nuts: Eric (Lane Davis), the doctor who dates both sisters; George (Mark Blankfield) the blind lab assistant, a cheap imitation Marty Feldman; Denise's husband Ronald (Marius Weyes), thought to have died scaling Mount Everest; and Genny's silent daughter Caroline (Brooke Theiss). The forces of Good & Evil deliver only a few laughs, such as when Denise reveals to Eric that she's naked under her fur coat. "I'm a doctor. Do you think that excites John Kiesewetter d cil Television They're back m New Attitude (8 p.m., BET cable): Repeat of ABC's 1990 Beauty Shop adaptation with Phyllis Stickney). Doogie Howser M.D. (9 p.m., Channels 12, 2): Doogie and Wanda lose their virginity. Night Court (9 p.m., Channels 12, 2): Conclusion of last week's Phantom Of The Opera spoof. Sbs (9:30 p.m., Channels 12, 2): Audie's car is impounded. Anything But Love (1 0 p.m., Channels 12, 2): Hannah takes a home pregnancy test. Live From Lincoln Center (8 p.m., Channels 16, 48, 54): Hugh Downs hosts a performance of Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro. me?" he says. This sitcom is more bad than good, and it's hard to imagine millions of viewers hooked on the slapstick, standoffs and contrived cliffhangers. Methinks the bubble will burst soon. It could be Gone & Forgotten before sweeps. Ryan, left, and Harris "do it" tonight on Doogie Howser. High school romances seldom last forever, Harris says, "so I thought it was an interesting, good way to go, to start meeting other people. And it opens up an entire part of the show, meeting people at the hospital, nurses and patients." As the third ABC season opens, i I i ' . .

Wanda (Lisa Dean Ryan) goes to college, and Doogie moves from home into an apartment with Vinnie (Max Casella). Harris also is on his own, living in a rented house, as his parents resume life in New Mexico. "It's not like I'm leaving them (parents) for good," he says. "There are a lot of people here that are watching out for me, that care about how I'm doing, and I think it should be fine." When his Doogie days are done, Harris plans to pursue a degree in theater or film not medicine. While narrating a JVova special about Harvard Medical School students, he was shocked to see the stressed-out future doctors. Says Harris: "I would much rather act. Really." JOHN KIESEWETTER Doogie Howser M.D. receives an 18th birthday present today he'll never forget. He and Wanda, his college-bound longtime girlfriend, have sex for the first time. "All my life, I've done everything way ahead of other kids," says the child prodigy doctor (9 p.m., Channels 12, 2). "And now I'm lagging behind." Tonight's show handles the issue quite sensitively, with Howser (Neil Patrick Harris) weighing the consequences. Harris, who turned 18 in June, defends the producers' decision. "I think many 18-year-olds have had sex, and many have had sex very often. And so I don't think that it's such a shock, at least to the 18-to-2 1-year-old age group. "In fact, I get a lot of flak because Doogie hasn't had sex (yet)," he told TV critics in July.
