LOS ANGELES -- It was one of the hottest Fox Television parties in years. Calista Flockhart and Gillian Anderson in the same room. How could it get any better? Then in walked David E. Kelley with his wife, actress Michelle Pfeiffer. There was a feeding frenzy of television critics instantly surrounding the couple. But all the questions were going to Pfeiffer. After a few minutes, Kelley slipped away, almost unnoticed. "Happens all the time," he said matter-of-factly as he surveyed the scene of two dozen reporters sticking microphones and tape recorders in his wife's face and hanging on her every word.

Usually, special episodes of regular series that air during "sweeps" ratings periods aren't worth much of anything except skepticism and contempt.And, then, along comes one like tonight's "Leave of Absence" from CBS' "Chicago Hope," which reminds you why television -- even at its most commercial -- has become the most important storyteller in American life. It also makes you wonder if maybe we aren't living in a kind of mini-Golden Age of television drama -- especially when you think about this episode in connection with others from such series as "Homicide," "NYPD Blue," "Law & Order," "ER," "X-Files" and "Picket Fences."

Two medical dramas set in the same town. Two prominent creators. One time period. One winner.The outcome: One show gets a clean bill of health. The other is disabled.That's how many television writers summed up the highly publicized showdown last September between NBC's "ER" and CBS' "Chicago Hope." To "ER," the victor of the Thursday-at-10-p.m. conflict, went the spoils: huge ratings, tons of publicity and accolades to creator Michael Crichton.After getting hit by a steamroller, "Chicago Hope" has been given a prescription that CBS hopes will cure its ratings ailments and turn it into a long-running hit, too: a move to a proven time slot on one of the network's strongest nights.

A funny thing happened to "Chicago Hope" on the way to its premiere tomorrow: It got a lot better.I saw the rough cut of the pilot in August and wasn't much impressed.

In the staring-contest battle of the Thursday-night medical shows, NBC's "E.R." and CBS's "Chicago Hope," CBS has blinked first, but that was to be expected. Though separating the two medical shows is good news for viewers, the new time slot for "Chicago Hope" isn't. The kamikaze way CBS has scheduled the show this fall, the series ought to be called "Chicago Hopeless."* "My So-Called Life." (8-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Enjoy this series while you can, because it's not doing well at all in the ratings: A week ago it ranked fourth in the time slot, behind even Fox's "Martin" and "Living Single."
