'Working It Out' on Wednesday

November 28, 1990|By Michael Hill | Michael Hill,Evening Sun Staff

It was supposed to be just a one-time trial tonight, but now NBC has made it official and moved "Working It Out" to Wednesdays at 9:30.

It will make its debut in that time slot on Channel 2 (WMAR) tonight with another top-notch outing of this well-crafted comedy starring Jane Curtin and Stephen Collins as two divorced people groping their way into a serious relationship.

Henny Youngman is the unlikely guest star, playing himself in this episode as Curtin's character, Sarah, has trouble with the L-word -- the middle one of those famed "three little words" -- when Collins' David lets it slip out one night.

Youngman shows up to get David to take his photograph for the cover of his new book. Then he appears in a couple of Sarah's dreams.

It's a half hour that lets you know that even those on the downside of thirtysomething can be as tongue-tied as adolescents when the conversation gets serious.

The hope of NBC is that the later time slot will allow this show to be found by an older audience who will appreciate the subtle sophistication of this comedy.
