Barry Manilow fans should mark March 7 on their calendars. That's the night he'll star in a special for CBS, "Barry Manilow: Big Fun on Swing Street!" The hourlong program will feature four new songs by Manilow, plus appearances by Carmen McRae, Dianne Schuur, Stanley Clarke, Phyllis Hyman, Tom Scott, the vocal group Full Swing and Kid Creole and the Coconuts.

Lou Diamond Phillips will host "Teen Times," a documentary about adolescence that KHJ-TV Channel 9 is producing. The program, to be broadcast Feb. 21 at 8 p.m., will attempt "to capture the trends, music, culture and emotional makeup of teen-agers from a wide spectrum of socioeconomic, racial and religious backgrounds." It also will include an appearance by Malcolm-Jamal Warner of "The Cosby Show."

Kathleen Noone, whom daytime viewers know as Ellen Chandler on the ABC soap opera "All My Children," turns up in prime time Monday on CBS' "Kate & Allie." She plays a well-to-do woman who hires Kate and Allie (Susan Saint James and Jane Curtin) to cater her anniversary party.

Humphrey Bogart will be the subject of a PBS program in March, to be hosted by his wife and three-time co-star, Lauren Bacall. "Bacall on Bogart" will be produced by David Heeley and Joan Kramer, whose previous PBS tributes include "The Spenser Tracy Legacy: A Tribute by Katharine Hepburn," "James Stewart: A Wonderful Life" and "Fred Astaire: Change Partners and Dance."

Pernell Roberts, the former star of "Trapper John, M.D.," will appear on the Disney Channel in April as the star of "The Night Train to Kathmandu," a new TV movie that was filmed on location in Nepal. He plays a professor searching for a secret kingdom in the Himalayas.

ABC has ordered a spinoff series from its hit comedy "Growing Pains" about Coach Lubbock, played by Bill Kirchenbauer. In a two-part episode that will be seen on "Growing Pains" this spring, he'll be fired from his high-school job. That will set up the new show, in which he'll be seen with his pregnant wife, mother-in-law and seven children.

Tommy Lee Jones and Virginia Madsen have the starring roles in "Gotham," a made-for-cable movie that the Showtime pay-TV channel plans to show this summer. Showtime describes it as a romantic ghost story in which Jones portrays a detective who "becomes entangled in a passionate web of supernatural danger."
