What television program has the intellect of a PBS documentary, the gritty drama of "Hill Street Blues" and the humor of the old "Saturday Night Live"? We'll see, won't we? Bravo to Allan Parachini ("The Resurrection of Gene Scott," July 21). Dr. Gene Scott got my attention, and I'm a Phi Beta Kappa from UC Berkeley. Enough slush and drivel! Let's see Doc during prime time. VICKI BYLIN SCHEIBEL Canoga Park

Arizona would face a tremendous challenge if quarterback Matt Scott is unable to play against UCLA on Saturday. Scott, who suffered a concussion against USC on Saturday, ranks fourth nationally in passing yards, averaging 340.5 yards per game. UCLA Coach Jim Mora hyped the Wildcats' offense Monday, saying, “it's fast and furious and they score a lot of points.” But Mora side-stepped questions about how fast and how furious the Wildcats would be if Scott does not play. “He's a great player and he's having a tremendous year, but we prepare for the scheme,” Mora said.

Channel 9's bombastic Scott St. James, the Rambo of local sportscasters, wants to take his tough-guy image to the big screen. That's what's behind that full-page ad in Daily Variety ("talent rate" cost: $1,125) in which St. James unabashedly proclaimed, "The episodic and movie folks are using him too. A lot!" Naturally, we had to find out what's "a lot." The irrepressible St. James (he swears it's his real name) returned our call via his car phone, as he rushed to cover a breaking story.

Residents of a nursing home, two senile old woman share shifting memories of their pasts in "Irma & Emma" by Cornelius Schnauber, translated from the German by Tom Schnauber and directed by Louis Fantasia. Now in its U.S. premiere in the MET Theatre's tiny Great Scott space, "Irma" is supposedly a black comedy -- but despite a few scanty chuckles along the way, it appears that something has been lost in this translation.

With the hackneyed caravans comes the time for public judgment, conclusions drawn from a winter the elite spent correcting missteps through binge spending, the practice offset by the neglected franchises sweating out their longshot hunches.

George C. Scott, who in recent weeks has been seen on television as Scrooge, Fagin and Gen. George C. Patton, will be starring as "Mr. President" in a new weekly comedy series of that title, announced Friday by Fox Broadcasting Co. "Mr. President" will be Scott's first series since "East Side/West Side" aired on CBS in 1963. It is scheduled to premiere this spring on Fox's 100 affiliated stations. Ed.

Who goofed? Larry Stewart shows a shocking ignorance and a reprehensible disregard for facts when he labels Mark Scott "the Vin Scully of the '50s in Los Angeles." In the 1950s, Bob Kelley was the voice of the Los Angeles Angels and Sam Balter was the principal voice of the Hollywood Stars, although Tom Harmon and Fred Hessler also did some work at Gilmore Field. Balter and Kelley feuded on their radio shows (Balter at 5:45 on KLAC and Kelley at 6 on KMPC), a feud that occasionally flares anew even today through Kelley's writer, Jim Healy.

One scout says Bill Scott's swing is like Vermont maple syrup, sweet and fluid. Another compares it to a foreign sports car, compact and powerful. Everyone agrees Scott is the real thing, the best pure hitter in the area. In his senior year, the Alemany slugger is eclipsing even the eye-popping numbers he posted in the previous three. Scott is batting .641 with five home runs, raising his career average to .458. He has improved every year, batting .318 as a freshman, .471 as a sophomore and .

Bill Scott did not hit a home run in every game he played last season for UCLA--it only seemed that way. Scott hit 28 homers and finished his sophomore year with homers in 10 consecutive game days. The streak carried over into this season when he hit home runs in the Bruins' first two games in Hawaii. "It couldn't last forever," said Scott, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound outfielder from Granada Hills.

The doorbell rings at the Melrod residence. When 14-year-old Scott (Tobey Maguire) opens the door, his eyes almost pop out of his head, for standing there is Carolyn Cole, a tall, curvy, beautiful classmate he has long ogled from afar but never had the courage to speak to. She eyes him lustfully. "Is there some spot here where we can go and make out?" Scott's joy abruptly ends when Carolyn is suddenly supplanted by reality.

They played with bloody noses, cut hands and sprained ankles. They hit and hit, then got back up and hit again. It was No. 1 vs. No. 2 in the game of the year in which more than 4,000 fans filled every bleacher seat and hundreds more stood mesmerized in both end zones. "It was awesome," lineman Fernando Arteaga of Alemany said. "I'm going to remember this for the rest of my life." In a game that lived up to the hype, No.

Great Scott! Great Clausen, great Atkins and great Montgomery, too, for that matter. Nobody could have predicted this. Alemany High had its offense running in overdrive Friday night, handing Canyon a 49-14 nonleague drubbing at Canyon High. It was the kind of offensive outburst that would be considered, well, offensive to any smash-mouth football believers.

Perhaps more than anyone, Myron Miller knows any hope Tustin has against Santa Margarita in Saturday's Southern Section Division V championship game at Cal State Fullerton will come down to his quarterback's ability to complete passes. Miller, a veteran coach whose teams have enjoyed great success running the ball in the wing-T offense, said senior Todd Scott will need to throw the ball when he isn't handing it off to talented running back DeShaun Foster.
