It's inevitable: Once you reach the top, the only place to go is down. Just ask the Dallas Cowboys, Dick Van Dyke or CBS. And while it would be foolhardy to write off the folks at KABC-TV Channel 7 just yet, this city's dominant television station for the past decade has recently been showing a few chinks in its armor.

"A.M. Los Angeles," KABC-TV Channel 7's long-running talk show, has been canceled and will be replaced in its 9-10 a.m. weekday time slot by the syndicated "Live With Regis & Kathy Lee," co-hosted by former "A.M.

Mr. Chucko goes to Chile. . . . There he was, that beacon of wisdom, that oracle of understanding, that light of learning, Chuck Henry. There he was on KABC-TV Channel 7 Wednesday night, hosting another edition of "Eye on L.A.," fronting a travelogue from a Latin paradise and pleasure dome where everybody is happeeeeeeee .

"A.M. Los Angeles," a morning staple at KABC-TV Channel 7 for 20 years, will disappear quietly from the airwaves Friday--a victim of the economic vise that has been squeezing locally produced programming off the air for the last several years. After a week of "Best of A.M. L.A." reruns, the syndicated "Live With Regis and Kathie Lee" will move down the dial two notches from KCAL-9 on Oct. 7. It isn't the ratings that killed "A.M. L.A."

Magic Johnson is on television more than Johnny Carson, or even Jay Leno. Johnson was on Channel 7 with Jim Hill last Sunday, and the next night was a presenter on the "American Music Awards." He will be a commentator for NBC Sunday when the Lakers play the Chicago Bulls. The NBA All-Star game is the following Sunday, and on Feb. 16 his jersey will be retired when the Lakers play the Boston Celtics on NBC. As a television draw, Johnson may be bigger than ever.

A year ago, Doris Winkler was 62 and depressed. Her husband was ill; their savings had been jeopardized by an investment failure; her seven grown children no longer needed her. Winkler had had a 20-year career in journalism and public relations; now she wondered whether her active life was through. "I realized I wanted to work in the mainstream again," recalled Winkler, a resident of Orange. "But I looked at the marks of age on my face and thought who would hire me?"
