On The Weekend Watch:
PREMIERES, PREMIERES -- The spring replacement season gets an early start, mostly on CBS. First up Friday (8 p.m., Channel 11) is "Scorch," followed at 8:30 by "Fish Police." If you missed promos for these shows during the Olympics, the former is about a fire-breathing dragon who comes to live with a sitcom family, and the latter is a Hanna-Barbera cartoon production in which recognizable stars give voice to a cast of fishy characters. Also Friday on NBC comes "Nightmare Cafe" (at 10 p.m., Channel 2), an hour-long repertory drama from director Wes Craven of "Nightmare on Elm Street" fame. And actor Robert Englund (Freddy Kreuger from the "Nightmare" movies) is in the cast. Finally, on CBS Saturday (10 p.m. Channel 11), "The Boys of Twilight" stars Wilford Brimley and Richard Farnsworth as a Western sheriff and his deputy.
CAMEOS, CAMEOS -- Tonight brings a couple of cute cameos to a pair of regular series, one oral and the other visual. Yes, that is the voice of TV veteran Steve Allen as a vocational counselor on "The Simpsons" (8 p.m., Channel 45). He suggests that Bart has the aptitude to be -- gasp! -- a policeman. And yes, that really is Iran-contra figure Oliver North as a passenger in Brian's (Steve Weber) plane on "Wings" (9:30 p.m., Channel 2).
