The Fox network did not make the new Dabney Coleman sitcom, "Drexell's Class," premiering tonight at 8:30 (Channel 45), available to critics. Never a good sign.Another trouble sign: The series has gone through several title changes, among them "Shut Up, Kids" and "Oh, No, Not Drexell."Mr. Coleman plays a sarcastic fifth-grade teacher with two teen daughters. Look for a lot of putdowns in the classroom.

BIOGRAPHY EDMUND WILSON: A LIFE IN LITERATURE By Lewis M. Dabney. Farrar, Straus and Giroux. 604 pages. To call Edmund Wilson (1895-1972) the greatest American critic or our most dynamic man of letters doesn't begin to hint at the scope of his achievement. Wilson's passions ranged from modernist literature to politics, the American Civil War, the ancient Middle East, northeastern American Indians, and just about anything else that piqued his intellect. He wrote good fiction (I Thought Of Daisy and Memoirs of Hecate County)
