TV used to be this pleasant, happy-family experience, a generally bloodless amusement. But change set in--"The Untouchables," with submachine guns blasting across the screen, Elvis shaking himself in front of Ed Sullivan, the celebrated bigotry of Archie Bunker. Each new season brings new challenges to the old order. Tonight, for example, the first line from the first episode of "Uncle Buck" (at 8 p.m. on CBS) has a 6-year-old girl, Maizy, yelling at her 8-year-old brother, "Miles, you suck."
