Remember how last season's "Noises Off" began with a scene from a perfectly terrible farce called "Nothing On"? For a good part of the first act, it seems possible that the Ahmanson's new show, "The Unvarnished Truth," is using the same gimmick. A comedy about a mystery writer who bumps off both his wife and his mother-in-law within 20 minutes of each other, each time by mistake? Come off it. They'll get to the real play in a minute. But they're serious.

Hence "City," a promising CBS comedy that, in targeting the menace of bureaucracy, locates some of the humor lurking within the wider tragedies besetting many of America's metropolises. It premieres at 8:30 tonight on Channels 2 and 8.

Imagine "Faust" transposed to contemporary Malibu, and you'll have a rough idea of what Lawrence Bassoff's sunny and amusing "Hunk" (citywide) is like. Few are the men who haven't identified with Charles Atlas' proverbial 97-pound weakling who gets sand kicked in his face when he goes to the beach. But instead of sending away for a body-building course or joining a gym, nice but nerdy computer hack Bradley Brinkman (Steve Levitt) succumbs to the shortcut of selling his soul to the devil.
