Jane Pauley to a member of America's white-collar brigade: "When's quittin' time?" "Quittin' time" was some time ago for the serious network documentary. It got its gold watch and a pat on the back along with early retirement: Nice job, but you're out of touch, creaky and passe, no longer needed. We're replacing you with the summer funumentary. The NBC summer series "Real Life With Jane Pauley" comes under that category.

It was infinitely more fun than last year's program. It was also the worst of times, the best of times and then, finally, the worst of times again. It's striking just how much a host sets the tone for an awards telecast, and Sunday's Emmy program on Fox was no exception. It was uneven the way the Hollywood Hills are uneven. At least in part that was because of the odd triad that Fox used as hosts: Candice Bergen, followed by Jay Leno, followed by Jane Pauley.
