Lots of past Emmy favorites are back this year with notable programs in the miniseries, TV movie and variety show categories, including actors Doris Roberts and Al Pacino, miniseries producers Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, plus telethon organizer George Clooney. But most noteworthy are Conan O'Brien and Jay Leno competing for best variety series with rival versions of "The Tonight Show." You can almost hear Ed McMahon yelping, "Eow!" TV MOVIES Front-runners "A Dog Year," HBO "Georgia O'Keeffe," Lifetime "The Special Relationship," HBO "Temple Grandin," HBO "When Love Is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story," CBS "You Don't Know Jack," HBO Spotlight: HBO has had a stranglehold on this category for the last 17 years, winning 15 times, including the last six consecutive contests.

Long before she became a TV icon as the ultimate Italian mamma Marie Barone on "Everybody Loves Raymond," Doris Roberts was a young actress trying to make a name for herself in New York in the 1950s alongside some classmates who went on to bigger things as well. "I was a member of the Actors Studio," Roberts said in a recent interview. "Marilyn Monroe used to come to class. Martin Balsam was there. Anne Bancroft was there. Geraldine Page."

Doris Roberts vividly remembers her reaction when told in 1996 that CBS had scheduled her new show, "Everybody Loves Raymond," Fridays after "Dave's World." "Friday night at 8:30 on CBS? It's a death slot. The last success they had in that hour on Friday was 'Gomer Pyle.'" Of course, her skepticism was based on experience. Three years earlier she co-starred in "The Boys," a sitcom starring Chris Meloni as a young writer who befriends three older men.

WATCHING the series prototype for "Everybody Loves Raymond" in 1996, long before it blossomed into television's second-most-watched comedy, I was instantly struck by this thought: "Hey, that's my mother."

EVEN by the standards of Wisteria Lane, that "Desperate Housewives" stretch of suburbia where bombshells detonate routinely, Sunday's Emmy for lead actress in a comedy was a bit of a shocker. At the end of the evening, the actress who ended up clutching the gold wasn't the tabloid favorite but the critical darling. And Felicity Huffman, who plays the show's pill-popping, pushed-to-the-edge mother of four, Lynette Scavo, was not alone.

A sensitive adaptation of Katherine Anne Porter's short story "The Fig Tree" marks the fourth-season premiere of "Wonderworks" Saturday on PBS (airing at 7 p.m. on Channel 50, 8 p.m. on Channels 28 and 15). Performed by a first-rate cast, Porter's child's-eye view of death takes a young girl out of her shadowy world of repressed grief into sunlight and survival. A Texas family of 1903 has been crippled several years before by the loss of the mother in childbirth.
