We know that the baby is a girl. But is the mother a woman or a man? It's the February "sweeps" period and, as always, TV characters are being born, dying, getting married or wearing very skimpy outfits in an effort to punch up the ratings. But while Fox Broadcasting's "Alien Nation" will honor sweeps tradition by bringing forth a new baby Feb. 19, it will nuke the laws of nature as we know them by having the father give birth to the child.

An unlikely combination of Edmond Rostand's "Cyrano de Bergerac" and Neil Simon's "Chapter Two," the romantic comedy "Panache" offers little of what its title suggests. Undemanding audiences may get some laughs from local playwright Don Gordon's opposites-attract affair, in which a blue-collar fry cook and a high-culture socialite meet and fall in love. But we're talking thin material. Thin. Turn this play sideways and whoops, where did it go?

Sunday "Prohibition: 13 Years That Changed America" / 5 and 9 p.m. A&E How dry they were ... People who ran the speak-easies, transported the rum, bought the police and defended Al Capone reflect on the remarkable era in which legislators banned booze. That includes a Congress that kept its own still in the Senate Library and a chief executive who remained a hard drinker. The three-hour documentary also chronicles how the righteous rejoiced and gangsters squared off with G-men.

Part of our fascination with carnival freak shows is the distorted mirror they hold up to our own natures. In Lea Floden's "Headless," the more twisted that mirror, the better -- a sentiment taken to heart in Dan Bonnell's inventive, atmospheric staging for Ensemble Studio Theatre-L.A. Steeped in carny jargon and bizarre imagery, Floden's drama takes place in the Depression-era Dust Bowl -- a time of drought, both climatic and spiritual.

Hence, "Brand New Life" is not merely the name of tonight's inane NBC movie about a widower with three children and a divorcee with three children whose marriage to each other causes adjustment problems for their respective families. "Brand New Life" is a title that also applies to three other network series premiering tonight.
