The knock against Neil Simon in the early days was that he cared more about his punch lines than his characters. "The Sunshine Boys," his 1972 play about the rocky reunion of a pair of elderly vaudeville comics, attempts to turn this playwriting vice into a virtue. Wisecracks come as naturally to these shambling funnymen as drawing breath. And though arthritis has set in, they still relate to the world as if it were the setup for a slapstick routine - locks refuse to open, a TV (unplugged)

Danny DeVito and Judd Hirsch blow into a downtown steakhouse like a comedy hurricane. They've arrived straight from rehearsal for their upcoming show, "The Sunshine Boys," at the Ahmanson Theatre, and the tone of their entrance shtick owes something to the rapid-fire joking favored by the vaudeville comedians they play in the show. Hirsch is tall and thin with a full head of mussed salt-and-pepper hair. DeVito is short and round and sports a Friar Tuck-like ring of longish white hair.

What a five-star farce! "Dear John" begins--and almost immediately the funny one-liners hit the fan. Premiering at 9 tonight on Channels 4, 36 and 39, it starts good, then gets very good before getting better. The somber protagonist of NBC's new comedy is teacher John Lacey (Judd Hirsch), who seeks solace in the One-to-One therapy club after his wife leaves him for his best friend. Instead of answers, though, he finds absurdity. The executive producers here are Peter Noah, Ed.

The courtroom drama "She Said No" (Sunday at 9 p.m. on Channels 4, 36 and 39) is yet another TV movie dedicated to the proposition that, however heinous a sexual assault, there's no rape quite like a follow-up rape via the legal system.

On a recent afternoon, Hal Landon Jr. was admiring the set of "Talley's Folly," currently on the Second Stage at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa. The set, a weathered boathouse overgrown with weeds, has an ornate, gazebo-style skeleton, rotting floorboards and a rowboat sitting by the river bank.

It was going to be a long workday. Before it would end about 13 hours later, he would give two emotionally draining performances in "Conversations With My Father" that would leave him sweaty and spent, though invigorated by a second round of enthusiastic curtain calls. Right now, though, it's midmorning on a gloriously sunny Wednesday, and Judd Hirsch is taking it easy. He's walking his two dogs, the rambunctious Lucius and the woolly-haired Ashley, in a paved expanse beside the Hudson River.
