Every Monday, Eddie Clontz gets the numbers from 500 supermarkets in 20 cities, and this week the numbers are bad. "MARILYN MONROE WAS A RUSSIAN SPY!" bombed. "I made a mistake on that one," moans Clontz as his newsroom staff nods in agreement. Indeed, sales of Weekly World News' Marilyn cover story, an exclusive that reveals how the Hollywood sex goddess "romanced JFK and Nikita Khrushchev--at the same time!" totaled only 650,000, down 125,000 from usual.

Weekly World News, a supermarket tabloid whose staples include tales of encounters with space aliens, Bigfoot and Elvis Presley sightings, is coming to CBS. But comedy, rather than sensationalism, will be the focus of the program, lessening the chances for another hoax like the recent one on the supposed discovery of Noah's Ark that embarrassed the network. CBS has ordered two half-hour episodes of "Weekly World News on Television," which are currently being shot in Florida.

As the editor of a national weekly publication, Eddie Clontz always knew what he would do if he received a phone call from someone who said he had a Martian living in his bedroom. It wasn't what other editors would do. "I'd tell the guy, 'Great, we'll send a reporter right over,' " Clontz said in a speech to the Florida Press Club some years ago.

In Los Angeles, one of the galaxy's true hubs of confusion and uncertainty, this latest puzzle ranks as a real blockbuster: Is there--or was there--life on Mars? And will scientists find the answers in a hunk of rock that whizzed down from the sky 13,000 years ago in . . . uh, Antarctica? Tourist Sebastian Puts, 11, of Canada, was one of untold thousands pondering those questions Wednesday, even while scientists were reporting possible evidence of cellular life in the ancient meteorite.

Tourist Sebastian Puts, 11, of Canada, was one of untold thousands pondering those questions Wednesday, even while scientists were reporting possible evidence of cellular life in the ancient meteorite.
