MILWAUKEE - Reality and TV collided Monday when Cindy Williams, whose Laverne & Shirley character was a brewery worker from Milwaukee, stepped foot for the first time in a Milwaukee brewery and ran into the Fons. That would be Karen Fons from human resources at MillerCoors here. "To the other Fonz," Williams signed on her shirt when she popped in at a celebration to celebrate 1 million safe working hours at the brewery. A few miles away, Anson Williams was touring the Harley-Davidson Museum, celebrating the motorcycle lifestyle associated not with his own Happy Days character, Potsie Weber, but rather with the Fonz.

Originally scheduled to leave Iraq in January, the brigade will now return to its home base in Germany in late February.

This Cindy Williams sitcom is back with new episodes -- as if anyone missed it while it was gone, or saw it while it was here. NBC.* "Harts of the West."

A pair of look-back specials highlighting comedy series -- "Laverne & Shirley" and "Murphy Brown" -- vie for attention with season finales, a series conclusion and a TV movie out of relatively recent headlines.* "The Laverne & Shirley Reunion" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Clips featuring trademark physical comedy dominate this reminiscence, says Garry Marshall, who produced the 1976-1983 series that starred sister Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams as wacky brewery employees. Also look for appearances by Henry "The Fonz" Winkler, and Michael McKean and David L. Lander, who played Lenny and Squiggy.
