KCOP will air "The Streets of San Francisco" (Wednesday at 1:30 a.m.), a 1972 TV movie that was a pilot for the cop show of the same name. The first episode of the series, starring Michael Douglas and Karl Malden, airs Wednesday at noon.
Also starting a fresh run are two more recent series: "Crime Story," which begins with the two-part pilot (Tuesday and Wednesday at midnight on USA) and "The Cosby Show," with a premiere episode (Monday at 7 p.m. on KCOP) that has Theo learning an economics lesson.
Flashbacks show how Richard Kimble became "The Fugitive" (Wednesday at noon on A&E) in one of the first episodes of the series. (Helen Kimble, by the way, is played by Diane Brewster, who was Theodore's first teacher, Miss Canfield, on "Leave It to Beaver.") The series' first, undistinguished episode airs Monday at noon.
Garry Marshall, a writer for "The Dick Van Dyke Show" (and later creator of "Happy Days" and "Laverne and Shirley") has a small role on the "Van Dyke Show" as a fight referee (Monday at 1 p.m. on KDOC).
