As Mike O'Malley puts it, "The time to tell people the kind of show you want to do is not when you are drowning your sorrows in a bar when you are canceled." So O'Malley, not content with the creative quality of his new NBC sitcom, "The Mike O'Malley Show," sat down and wrote what he wryly refers to as "the manifesto" to his writing staff--a document that surfaced several weeks ago and was soon heating up fax lines around town and making its way into various publications.

There is a glaring omission in the CBS biography of "Yes, Dear" star Mike O'Malley. It lists his previous credits going back to his start on the Nickelodeon shows "Get the Picture" and "Guts," touts his ESPN stint as the sports fanatic "The Rick" and cites his playwriting career and his upcoming off-Broadway play "Searching for Certainty."

NBC programming chief Garth Ancier outlined a sweeping revamping of the prime-time lineup, midway through what has been a disappointing November sweeps for NBC. The changes, which will begin to roll out during January, affect every night but Wednesday and NBC's long-dominant Thursday franchise. Comedies will be dropped from Monday entirely, with the high school drama "Freaks and Geeks" shifting from Saturday to open the night at 8, followed by "Dateline NBC," then "Third Watch."

Say It Ain't So: "Rumor has it the Spice Girls are breaking up. Man, this has got to be the worst news since the day Vanilla Ice said he was quitting the music business for good." (Andrew Wisot) Vying for Viewers: "The Mike O'Malley Show" died after two episodes. "Nielsen ratings showed that during its time slot, more viewers in the 8-to-13 age group were watching their 'South Park' night light."

Tuesdaysomethings. . . . A newcomer already in place is "Judging Amy" on CBS, and on the way are the WB's "Angel" and UPN's "Shasta McNasty" and "The Strip." Arriving tonight are NBC's vapid fourth rock from the sun, "The Mike O'Malley Show," and the WB's own inexplicable alien, the animated "Mission Hill," making a quickie pit stop here en route to its ultimate Friday time slot.

Comic strips rarely transfer well to television, the WB's promising new "Baby Blues" being a welcome exception in this animation milieu. Its genesis is the popular newspaper strip, by Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott, that follows the adventures of Darryl and Wanda MacPherson, a suburban young couple tenuously adjusting to parenting their infant Zoe. It isn't always pretty.

Cynics suggest that this fall's crop of new series tends to be packed with dull, generic, interchangeable titles that, when viewed as a whole, may make it difficult for the average viewer to distinguish one from another. As a service to our loyal readers, what follows is a guide to the season's muddled prime-time monikers that could result in the "Time of Your Life." So at the risk of being the "Odd Man Out" with producers, I implore you to be an "Angel" and "Work With Me."

For anyone still fretting over a gift for Mother's Day, CBS has come to the rescue, and six days early to boot. Just sit the dear old gal in front of the tube tonight at 8:30 and let the domestic sitcom "Yes, Dear" deliver a gift-wrapped episode showing just how indispensable a mother can be. And how irritating, overbearing and controlling, too--but that's only to make the Mother Knows Best payoff work all the better.
