Hard to believe, but true: Baby Doll is a grandmother now. Carroll Baker, who won an Oscar nomination for her role as a child-wife in the steamy 1956 Tennessee Williams story "Baby Doll," grew up when American moviegoers weren't looking, reared her children in Rome, and became a star in Italian films. She's back to co-star with John Forsythe in ABC's "On Fire" Monday (9-11 p.m., Channels 7, 3, 10 ,42), a two-hour drama about a man forced into mandatory retirement at age 60. Baker plays his wife.

Until a few months ago, Cabbage Patch dolls were as hard to buy as happiness, but today these pudgy-faced little creatures are falling off shelves in discount stores and their overwhelming popularity is giving way to something new. Even though trying to predict the doll market is like trying to predict the automobile market (Remember the Edsel?), some toy-industry experts say the next doll to catch on is likely to be so realistic that it could be mistaken for a real baby.
