There's nothing like being able to enjoy one's own backyard. That's how actor Rocky Carroll figured it when he and his wife, Gabrielle, bought their home--with a pool--in Westwood last April. "I love swimming in my backyard. Mornings are best, unless I have an early call on the set"--as surgeon Keith Wilkes on the CBS-TV drama "Chicago Hope"--"and then I wait till I get home," Carroll explained during a phone interview. He also likes to run, but sometimes Rosie has other ideas.

Carl Gordon, who despite a late start on an acting career became a well-known presence on stage and television, has died. He was 78. Gordon died July 20 at his home in Jetersville, Va., of non- Hodgkin's lymphoma, said his wife, Jacqueline Alston-Gordon. Gordon was best known for his role in "Roc," a situation comedy about an African American working-class family in Baltimore that ran on Fox from 1991-94. Gordon played Andrew Emerson, the father of sanitation worker Roc Emerson, who was played by Charles S. Dutton.

Viewers of "The Agency" (10 p.m., CBS) tonight will probably like the show's newest series regular--three-time Emmy winner Beau Bridges. But will they like him too much? The CIA drama is setting up a rivalry between Bridges' character, newly named agency director Tom Gage, and his predecessor, Robert Quinn (Daniel Benzali of "Murder One"). However, there is no mistaking who we're supposed to think should be in charge. Gage is folksy and decent. Quinn is smirking and devious.

Here's hoping it's no omen that the 1990-91 fall season is starting--in summer--with a comedy whose hero believes, "Everything in creation is destined to become garbage. . . ." The character is burly, sensible, tight-waddish, ever-exasperated Roc Emerson (Charles Dutton), whose employment as a Baltimore garbage collector enables him to fill his house with used furniture and other discards from his route.

Written in the late 1980s and set in 1987, Jeff Stetson's “Fraternity,” now in its Los Angeles premiere at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center, is a frustrating but fascinating play that has an almost spooky timeliness. The setting, scrupulously evoked by Edward E. Haynes Jr.'s handsome set and Elizabeth Harper's mellow lighting, is an elite black men's club in Birmingham, the gathering place for the city's African American elite. Sen. Charles Lincoln (Roger Robinson), a cocky, cynical political survivor, is running against his former aide, Paul Stanton (Rocky Carroll)
