Carpoolers opens funny - four guys on their way to work, singing along with Air Supply - but it's downhill from there, and the slide, although quick and permanent, isn't even dramatic enough to be interesting. A low-rent Big Shots, Carpoolers, which premieres tonight, doesn't have enough edge to be offensive. It just isn't funny. Which is a problem, you know, for a comedy. It's too bad, as the sum of its parts is much better than its whole. Fred Goss, a fine, funny actor, plays Gracen, a marital arbiter who has a hard time standing up for himself.

Remember the dream sequence with which CBS ended the "Newhart" series in 1990?It involved the inspired idea of Bob Newhart awaking in bed to find himself with Suzanne Pleshette, who played his wife in an earlier series, "The Bob Newhart Show," which ran on CBS from 1972 to 1978. Newhart tells Pleshette that he just had this terrible "dream," and goes on to give a synopsis of the then-current "Newhart" series."That does it," she says. "No more Japanese food before you go to bed."Well, that bedroom scene is back as the launching pad for "The Bob Newhart 19th Anniversary Special," airing Saturday night at 8 on WBAL-TV (Channel 11)

Comic book artists on the "cutting edge," Newhart's co-workers are misfits, odd fits and no-fits at all. Bob is there because a comic book creature named Mad Dog he created 30 years before has suddenly been revived by a publisher.
