"Knots Landing" star Kevin Dobson has a double-header on his hands with Monday's "The Soap Opera Awards." He not only is scheduled to co-host the show with NBC's Robin Mattson ("Santa Barbara"), he is up for an award as best nighttime hero, voted for by readers of Soap Opera Digest. "Of course I would like to win. If I don't, I can take it. But I sure hope they don't give the award out too early if I lose. That might be a problem." "I was glad when they asked me to co-host," Dobson said.

"Knots Landing" star Kevin Dobson found himself on the run when he visited Skid Row this week, but for a different reason.

What would TV do without real-life personal tragedies to dramatize? Tonight's CBS movie, "The Conviction of Kitty Dodds" (9 p.m. on Channel 2 and 8), is yet another in that genre. This time, it's Veronica Hamel in the victim role, starring as Kitty Dodds, a battered woman serving a life sentence for having her abusive husband murdered. Kitty escapes, remarries, is discovered by authorities and returns to prison.

NBC adds to our general malaise tonight at 9 with "Casey's Gift: For Love of a Child." The title suggests warm and mushy but the movie only works if grief, torment, suspicion, hate, vengefulness and general all-around misery make you warm and mushy. For the rest of us, it's a tough go. It's the story of darling little 5-year-old Casey Stillwell, whom everybody adores--and then he drowns in the neighbor's pool.

The made-for-TV movie "Money, Power, Murder" promises in its title almost everything in the ratings sun except sex and rich chocolate treats. This CBS endeavor (9 p.m. Sunday on Channels 2 and 8) stars Kevin Dobson as smart but wise-aleck, clever but unorthodox, tough but heart-o'-gold reporter Peter Finley, who works for a small but feisty New York cable news operation. A good, breezy character.
