Production of "Becker," the CBS sitcom starring Ted Danson as a grouchy doctor, is back on track after settlement of a salary dispute by five of the show's supporting actors. A breach-of-contract suit brought by the five actors against Paramount Network Television "has been settled and all differences resolved," the two sides said in a joint statement. Paramount, like CBS, is a unit of Viacom Inc.

Ted Danson plays an iconoclastic doctor in "Becker," a rare new sitcom whose humor is detectable without a stethoscope. This series is a huge improvement over the short-lived Brian Benben comedy that it replaces and is much more compatible with its lead-in, "Everybody Loves Raymond." "Becker" has two primary locales. One is a diner where Danson's opinionated protagonist relentlessly blows steam in the presence of the owner (Terry Farrell) and a blind newsstand operator (Alex Desert).

CBS' tense, Hitchcockian "I Saw What You Did," airing at 9 tonight on Channels 2 and 8, is an artful roller-coaster ride of a film. A stylish remake of William Castle's 1965 thriller of the same name, this teleplay by Cynthia Cidre, based on a novel by Ursula Curtiss and masterfully directed by Fred Walton, takes its viewers on a breathless descent into an unrelenting nightmare.

"Becker" lives. Those two words could be cause for celebration or dismay, depending on one's tastes. More likely, they might elicit a shrug, along with a " 'Becker' who? Is that still on?" Yet this sitcom, starring Ted Danson as gruff Dr. John Becker, will begin its sixth season tonight at 9:30 on CBS. A minor miracle, because the network almost axed it over the summer. The question now is, will anyone notice, given that it's running opposite NBC's "The West Wing" and ABC's "The Bachelor"?

"Who's Harry Crumb?" (citywide)--he's John Candy as the klutziest detective since Peter Sellers' Inspector Clouseau. In this pleasantly silly private-eye spoof, Crumb is a grand poseur, shamelessly self-important, slow on the uptake yet good of heart and not the complete fool he so often seems. He's in constant battle with objects inanimate and otherwise.

Movies "The Brat Pack Goes West" might have made a nice subtitle for "Young Guns" (Vestron, $89.95, R). Starring Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen and Lou Diamond Phillips (as well as old guns Jack Palance and Terence Stamp), this Western about six desperadoes led by Billy the Kid fared poorly with most critics but scooped up $42 million at the box office. A rare and pretty-much-bungled attempt to deal with metaphysics in a major motion picture, "Vibes" (RCA/Columbia, $89.
