"Dateline NBC" expands to a fourth night and "3rd Rock From the Sun" will move from Sunday to Wednesday nights, said NBC. The top-rated network was the first to deliver its schedule; other networks follow suit within the next two weeks. NBC executives were relieved and confident in touting their shows to advertisers at Lincoln Center, after they narrowly avoided a scheduling nightmare by locking up the cast of "Seinfeld" for at least another year. Jerry's three supporting cast members had threatened to walk unless they got $1 million per episode, but settled for less. "We've embraced change and not complacency, and that's how we'll stay on top," NBC Entertainment president Warren Littlefield told advertisers. In "Veronica's Closet," Alley portrays a woman who heads a "Victoria's Secret"-like lingerie empire as she puts up with a cheating husband. Her show is scheduled in the most coveted time slot in television: at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday between "Seinfeld" and "ER," the year's two top-rated shows. Also blessed by the schedule- maker are the actors in "Union Square," which will air Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. The comedy about patrons of a New York City diner will be sandwiched between two other New York ensemble shows, "Friends" and "Seinfeld." "We are the most fortunate new kids on the block," said Mel Gorham, who plays struggling actress Mel Suarez on "Union Square." Former "Wonder Years" star Savage — now 20 — headlines the Betty D. Wolf comedy "Working," as a new recruit in a major corporation. Veteran comedy actor Tony Danza joins NBC in a show that depicts him as a New York sportswriter who is recently separated and trying to raise two teen-aged daughters. Jenny McCarthy moves from MTV to NBC as star of her own comedy, "Jenny," where she and a friend move into the Hollywood home of her late father, an actor she never knew. NBC is banking strongly on laughs. It has four sitcoms scheduled between 7 and 9 p.m. every night from Monday to Thursday, and two more on Sunday night. Monday night has a "women who work" theme with four returning comedies starring Brooke Shields, Sharon Lawrence, Lea Thompson and Tea Leoni. At 9 p.m. is the fourth weekly edition of the newsmagazine, "Dateline NBC." NBC's sixth new comedy is "Built to Last," starring stand-up comic Royale Watkins as an Ivy Leaguer forced to take over his family contracting business. Rap star Ice-T stars in the new drama, "Players," depicting a former convict now working for the FBI. "Sleepwalkers," about dream researchers, is a new drama added to the Saturday night schedule. Not renewed for next year are "Unsolved Mysteries," "The Single Guy," "The Jeff Foxworthy Show," "Something So Right," "Mr. Rhodes," "Boston Common," "Dark Skies" and "Crisis Center." It's the second rejection in a row for Foxworthy, whose show was dumped by ABC last year and picked up by NBC. Two comedies whose future was in doubt, "NewsRadio" and "Men Behaving Badly," were kept on the schedule. Network executives put on a big show for advertisers Monday, trotting out several of its stars and even offering a sneak preview of this month's "Mad About You" episode where star Helen Hunt's character gives birth. It carefully masked the sound so the new baby's sex was not revealed. ON THE RECORD PLAINVILLE — Betty D. Wolf, 66, Plainville, died Sunday, May 11,1997, at Rooks County Nursing Home, Plainville.
