Carol Burnett returns with a new variety special -- lending some variety to an otherwise too-quiet night.

Since cruise ships don't have the equivalent of an in-flight magazine, here's a suggestion for forward-thinking captains: Put copy of Bim in every cabin.It makes perfect sense. Most ships visit the Caribbean, and Bim is the literary journal of the Caribbean. It provides infinitely more stimulating reading than Danielle Steel. And this year it is celebrating its golden anniversary.Barely. The journal that began in Barbados in 1942 is hurting financially and today often opens with an apology for the time that has elapsed between issues.

The title of our film tonight is "Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina." If you're waiting for "Danielle Steel's Anna Karenina" or "Stephen King's Anna Karenina," please return to the lobby.Happily, "Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina" actually does hew closely, even reverently, to Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina," arguably literature's greatest piece of romance writing. Perhaps, though, the film could have benefited from a little more Danielle Steel. Or at least a little more sex.Is that a sacrilege? Yes, but at the core of Tolstoy's 19th-century novel is a passion so surpassing, so searing, its consequences sunder lives every which way. Screenwriter and director Bernard Rose ("Immortal Beloved")

Dear Tom Perkins: I'm writing to apologize. I do this on behalf of the 99 percent of us who are not multimillionaires. You, of course, are, having made a pile as a venture capitalist and co-founder of the firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. I admit, I'd have thought a guy like you had little to complain about. But that was before you wrote that tear-jerking Jan. 24 letter to The Wall Street Journal revealing the pain, the oppression, the abject sense of vulnerability and fear that go with having a net worth equal to the GNP of some developing nations.

Yes, Milton Berle died March 27. But yesterday marked the passing of the real Mr. Television, Robert Urich, at age 55, after a years-long battle with synovial cell sarcoma, a rare cancer that attacks the body's joints. He was not around at the dawn of the medium, or even during a golden age. But Urich starred in the most television series of any actor, from Soap to Love Boat: The Next Wave. If every movie star has a television counterpart, then Urich was the Gene Hackman of the small screen.

There just aren't enough courtroom dramas playing out on television these days, are there?The latest to be thrown into the mix is NBC's two-part movie "Trial: The Price of Passion," scheduled for 9 p.m. Sunday and Monday, and it's not all that interesting -- even for fiction.It's on a par with Danielle Steel for realism, but not quite as romantic -- a hokey, sex-filled soap opera based on improbable coincidences and cookie-cutter characters that's lifted only by a cast that includes Peter Strauss, Beverly D'Angelo, Jill Clayburgh and Ned Beatty.

Washington. -- American popular culture -- from Madonna to the Super Bowl, from Stephen King to the Reader's Digest -- helped conquer communism and now, for better or worse, is overrunning the world.Figures from the world of scholarship, entertainment and communications disagreed at a conference last week over whether the phenomenon -- "the Americanization of the world" -- was good or bad.But in talks and papers presented at a conference of the American Enterprise Institute, a think tank, they generally agreed it was happening.

This is the day on which the syndicated TV market goes crazy, with first-run shows and off-network reruns added to the mix -- including new talk shows headed by Suzanne Somers and Gordon Elliott. The more noteworthy news, however, is prime time, where this week before the "official" fall season looks a lot like the first week OF the fall season.* "Coach." (8-8:30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- It always made sense, to me, to consider moving "Coach" to Monday nights, where it could lead quite nicely into the same network's "Monday Night Football."
