" Cartoons " Lines Cop Anglers 'Falcon' Hockey Tennis Dumbo Circus Influences HSN ABC adds I, Two new sitcoms join ABC's 'TGIF" lineup tonight one is the pits and the other has potential. ' Getting By (at 8 p.m. on KVUE, Channel 24 Cable 3), starring sitcom vets Cindy Williams and Telma Hopkins, is derivative, formulaic and sticky sweet. It comes from the prolific team of Tom Miller and Bob Boyett, who worked with Williams on Laverne & Shirley and Hopkins on Bosom Buddies and Family Matters. Williams and Hopkins play single working moms Cathy Hale and Dolores Dixon, respectively. The women work together as social workers and also share a house to save money. Does this sound like Kate & AUie 1 Absolutely, but minus the hard-edged sarcasm of the original. Cathy, who has two revoltingly cute daughters, recently was dumped by her husband and hasn't come to grips with single life. Doh res, who has two ultra-hip sons, has been a widow for years. Cast exactly as you would expect, Cathy is the sweet, naive one; Dolores is the cynical, common-sense one. "I've always played the sweet one, the lead's best friend," Williams said in Los Angeles recently. "And that was etched in on La-verne & Shirley. In my real life I do always try to be polite." Both Williams and Hopkins said they were eager to work with the Miller-Boyett team again. "They always have a little moral, some good thing you can hang your hat on," said Williams, who has been raising her children with Prime time 7:00 (EQ3)(H) The Golden Palace The Chicken and the Egg.

And the kids are such awful little stereotypes the black boys spouting "dyn-o-mite" dialogue and the white girls acting like miniature Barbie dolls. In tonight's opener, Dolores' oldest son Marcus (Merlin San-tana) is about to flunk ninth grade. His strong-armed mom can't get through to him, but Cathy's soft touch works wonders. Natch. Williams and Hopkins have good chemistry together, but bad scripts and an insipid kid cast are insurmountable obstacles. Movies 6:00 CB AMC AI That Heaven Allows (1955) Jane Wyman, Rock Hudson.

The premise is a bit unusual, the look is unique and the cast is very appealing, especially the bright young star Doug E. Doug, who was the inspiration for the show. "I wanted to do a project with Doug because he's brilliantly funny," executive producer Michael Jacobs (Dinosaurs) said in Los Angeles recently.

'Fr friends and the upstairs apartment where he lives with his discipline-minded parents Marie (Lorraine Toussaint) and James (Sullivan Walker). "We wanted to do an African-American version of (Thornton Wilder's play) Our Town set in Harlem instead of Grover's Corners," said co-executive producer Erich Van Lowe, who grew up in Harlem and has written for The Cosby Show and Roc. "We wanted a young black man to take us through Harlem, so we structured it like a play. We wanted to show this community from the inside. The media does a good job telling about the drugs and crime there, but they don't do a good job of showing the close-knit nature of the community." Walker, who was born in Trinidad, lived in Harlem when he first came to the United States. "I felt a sense of belonging and family that I did not expect to find when I came to America," he said. The show does a good job of conveying that sense of community, but the characters are much more middle class than Doug's own family was in Brooklyn. "My family was so poor they'd go to Kentucky Fried Chicken and lick other people's fingers," the dreadlocked comic said with a grin. Doug, 24, briefly studied journalism at St. John's University before starting his career in stand-up comedy. He opened for jazz great Miles Davis and worked comedy clubs in New York. Filmmaker Spike Lee gave him a bit part in Mo' Better Blues, and then Doug PBS t V Tina Turner tears up the stage in "Live From Barcelona." Then, B.B. King, the king of the blues, bears his soul in a special encore of an Austin City Limits classic at 10:05 p.m. on channel 18, cable 9 in Austin. Tina Turner Tonight at Th Austin A landed roles in Hangin' With the Home Boys and Class Act. His next movie, now filming in Canada with John Candy, is about the Jamaican bobsled team at the 1988 Olympics. . As a sitcom star, Doug has a ways to go. He seems comfortable joking and rapping with his friends on the stoop, but when the scene changes to his family life, he seems a bit over his head. In tonight's pilot, Doug feels insecure and inferior when his best friend Reggie (Flex) wins a college basketball scholarship. To cover up his feelings, he boasts that he doesn't need college; hell just get a job. But when his father and mother stress the importance of education and reinforce their love for him, Doug the actor (and consequently Doug the character) have trouble expressing the right emotions. Nevertheless, Where I Live is an improvement over many sitcoms featuring black youths. At least this one attempts to portray real people in real situations. After the San Antonio Spurs basketball game tonight, KXAN Channel 36 will present a half-hour special (at 9:30 p.m. on Cable 4) on golf champ Tom Kite of Austin, who won the Los Angeles Open last weekend. Sportscaster Michael Coleman takes a look back at Kite's remarkably consistent career, from his 1973 rookie-of-the-year debut on the pro tour to his current status as golfs all-time biggest money winner. 8 p.m. Amr1cn-Slatesman proudly Kjooortt KLRU TV-1 S.
