One of the eerier aspects of being a member of today's African American middle class is how R&B pop tunes stalk you no matter where you go, what you do, who you are. At least that is the impression left by such movies as "Waiting to Exhale," "The Best Man" and now "The Brothers," the latest in a burgeoning field of studio-slick romantic opuses that seem preoccupied with generating soundtrack sales to shore up an uncertain box office.

A little not-so-funny business is surrounding NBC's "Diet Coke With Lemon Celebrates 40 Years of Laughter: At the Improv"--and not just that title.
