There is a scene early on in the second act of "Visions and Lovers: Variations on a Theme" in which a barely clad Jenna Elfman grabs Miguel Ferrer's face and pulls it close. They are lovers--he's a writer, she's a model--and we've caught them early on in the dance. "Look at me," she says. It is half demand, half plea. "Look . . . at . . . me," she says again. Now the words are torn from somewhere deep inside. Her eyes are rimmed with tears, every muscle in her body is taut.

Singer Rachel Sweet has sold Los Pavoreales, a 1926 Los Feliz home designed by Wallace Neff, for $4,895,000, the Multiple Listing Service shows. The Spanish-style residence, on 1.8 acres, has had a star-studded chain of owners, including Madonna, actress Jenna Elfman and actress Katey Sagal. There are five bedrooms and 5 1/2 bathrooms in the compound, which has a main house and detached guesthouse. Neff was known for his Spanish Colonial revival houses and adapting traditional styles for celebrity clients such as Cary Grant and Claudette Colbert.

Jenna Elfman is best known for playing the free-spirited hippie yoga instructor Dharma on "Dharma & Greg." She stars in the upcoming CBS sitcom "Accidentally on Purpose," based on the true story of a movie critic who becomes pregnant after a one-night stand with a much younger man. You've been determined to find another TV show after "Dharma & Greg." CBS' "Courting Alex" didn't work out. What about doing a sitcom is important to you? Since I was a little girl, I knew that television was my place.

First impressions count, and "Accidentally on Purpose," the new Jenna Elfman comedy, begins with a poor one. Ashley Jensen -- an intelligent, subtle actress who has done lovely work on "Ugly Betty" and "Extras" -- speaks: "I can't do another office party; I've already slept with everyone here." Alas, poor Ashley. Seconds later, she is advising Elfman, who is here named Billie and has slept only with their boss (Grant Show), to "perk up" her nipples to attract his attention. This Billie duly attempts, flicking fingers at her chest.

Jenna Elfman, who co-starred in the popular ABC sitcom "Dharma & Greg" and will make her Broadway debut Oct. 7 in the Tony-winning revival of "Nine," and her husband, actor Bodhi Elfman, have put their Los Feliz home on the market at just under $4.9 million. The couple bought the Wallace Neff-designed home from Madonna in 2000 for about $4 million. The same year, Madonna purchased the Neff-designed Beverly Hills home of actress Diane Keaton for $6.5 million.

Lose weight. Exercise more. Get organized. Find a better job. Most of us jot down one or more of these resolutions every Jan. 1. But who can find the time to actually work on them? Now there is a way to squeeze an extra hour or two out of the day -- if you consider that Americans watch an average of more than four hours of television a day. (String all those hours together and that adds up to two continuous months of boob tube viewing each year.
