Fred Berry, the rotund actor who played the jolly, red beret- and suspenders-wearing Rerun on the 1970s sitcom "What's Happening!" and later became an ordained minister, has died. He was 52. Berry, who recently suffered a mild stroke, died Tuesday at his home in Los Angeles, apparently of natural causes. A coroner's investigation was being conducted to determine the cause of death.

Somebody's going to think that I've got it in for Channel 4 news. I do not. Somebody might suspect that I'm carrying a grudge of some kind against KNBC-TV. I am not. On the contrary, as I have written here before, Channel 4 is usually my local TV news channel of choice. I have nothing against Channels 2, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 or any other. I'm just in the habit of getting my late-night TV news from Channel 4. If Fritz Coleman tells me it's going to snow 20 inches in Anaheim tomorrow, I believe him.

Critics are being shut out of more films as studios forgo advance screenings on flicks they expect reviewers to trash, figuring the movies stand a better chance of box-office success with no reviews rather than bad ones. So far this year, 11 movies have not screened for critics before opening day, including the Rob Schneider-David Spade sports comedy "The Benchwarmers" and Mo'Nique's fashion comedy "Phat Girlz," both opening Friday.
"Just Shoot Me" may not aim for any kind of high-minded TV breakthrough, but in its sixth season it still hits the humorous mark with its gently cynical take on relationships, vanity and office politics. The Blush magazine staff gets a dose of corporate therapy in tonight's episode (9:30 p.m. NBC), written by Brian Reich and directed by Pam Fryman.

Paramount Pictures worldwide marketing chief Arthur Cohen is stepping down from a job he's held for the last 14 years. The move ends one of the longest reigns for a top studio marketing executive in recent decades. "I have the world record for holding the job," said Cohen, who will remain with the company as a consultant. Until a successor is named, the Viacom Inc.-owned studio's marketing group will report directly to Paramount's chief operating officer, Rob Friedman.
