Happy New Year: With Christmas over, it's time to move on to New Year's Eve plans. Fox Broadcasting will welcome 1992 with a live New Year's Eve celebration emanating from New York and other locations around the country. Program hosts Penn and Teller will make 1991 "skillfully disappear" from their anchor spot at Times Square, while entertainment will be provided by Guns N' Roses, Southside Johnny and comedians Sam Kinison, Mark Curry, Bruce Baum and Lois Bromfield.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, lots of celebrity chefs are going to be slicing and dicing at The Taste, the L.A. Times' food and wine festival this weekend at Paramount Studios. But do any of them have an edge over the best chefs in the Los Angeles Fire Department? Maybe, but it's close. And if you don't believe me, come join me Sunday at 2:15 when I host a rematch of the firehouse cook-off, with Capt. Mark Curry of Station 29 in Koreatown throwing his best at firefighter Cruz Macias of Station 87 in Granada Hills.

As everyone who follows my colleague Steve Lopez's columns surely knows by now, the term “firehouse chef” no longer means what it used to. If you're thinking industrial-size portions of lasagna or pot roast and mashed potatoes, welcome to the 21 st century. But if you really wanted to know just how far we've come, you should have been at The Times on Thursday morning when eight local firehouse chefs visited the building at Lopez's invitation to vie for a shot at cooking at this year's Taste festival on Labor Day weekend.

Scott Baio, who was Chachi on "Happy Days" and "Joanie Loves Chachi" and Charles on "Charles in Charge," is now the star of "See Dad Run," the first scripted comedy from Nick at Nite. Without being actually privy to the internal memos, I would guess that the series, which premieres Sunday, exists to follow the lead of rival TV Land, which has already added some original - in the sense of new - old-fashioned sitcoms to its rotation of actually old sitcoms. "Hot in Cleveland," with Valerie Bertinelli and Betty White, was the first; "The Soul Man," with Cedric the Entertainer is the latest.

You'd think that the idea of a punk approach to poetic, confessional folk-blues would have possibilities, but after being bludgeoned by the pain-filled soul-searching of Mark Curry at the Roxy on Thursday, you might be inclined to reconsider. The 24-year-old Sacramento native places high value on emotional rawness, and he delivered his wordy verses in an anguished shriek full of raspy, scratchy textures.

Pryor Inspiration: Mark Curry of ABC's comedy series "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper," whose inspiration to do comedy "stemmed from listening to Richard Pryor's albums," will share the stage with his idol Saturday night for a one-time comedy performance at the Wilshire Theatre. . . . The Hollywood Playhouse on Las Palmas Avenue is being renamed the Richard Pryor Theater as a tribute to the actor-comedian and henceforth will book plays and one-man shows with comedy as the essence.
