Johnny Carson's television production firm is up for sale, but details were under wraps Tuesday. David Tebet, executive vice president of Johnny Carson Production Co., and other company representatives said the Los Angeles office of the investment banking firm Bear, Stearns & Co. was handling the sale. Tebet said he could not confirm a published report that a minimum bid of $65 million was being sought, but he and another person close to Carson said they thought that the figure was low.

In January, Oscar-winning actor George C. Scott ("Patton") was hospit a lized for a week because of an acute myocardial infarction. He has since gotten a clean bill of health. But the poorly rated Fox Television half-hour series in which he starred, "Mr. President," fared less well: Carson Productions, which has announced it is getting out of the TV series business, had decided before Scott's hospitalization to stop production of the sitcom. Fox is now airing reruns.

"Mr. President" is more softcom than sitcom, a half hour that amuses without being silly, an urbane and very human series from Fox premiering at 9 p.m. Sunday on Channels 11 and 6. It returns George C. Scott to weekly TV for the first time since 1963. That was the year that Scott played a frustrated social worker in the fleeting-but-excellent "East Side/West Side" on CBS. Obviously, he has discriminating taste in TV series.
