DOROTHY SARNOFF, 94 Self-help pioneer Sweaty palms, nervous laughter, a Brooklyn accent, panic-induced silences. These were just a few of the image blemishes addressed by Dorothy Sarnoff, an opera singer and Broadway star who had a much bigger second career as one of the first, and most influential, image consultants, coaxing stage-worthy performances from business executives preparing a big speech, ambassadors on their way to foreign assignments and...

A lot of viewers will be following the bouncing ball as the NCAA Tournament concludes.

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.

It's the last night for "the Night Thing": "The Arsenio Hall Show" closes shop, with enough momentum and special guests to make it one of the evening's two highlights. The other: an "Edith Ann" cartoon on ABC.* "Edith Ann: Homeless Go Home." (8:30-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Jane Wagner, Lily Tomlin's writer and creative partner, has taken one of Tomlin's broadest characters from Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In and fleshed her out beautifully, in animated form. Tomlin's muddy Edith Ann voice is as telling as ever, and the jokes and story lines in "Homeless Go Home" are as wry and clever as the title itself.

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.

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."

Los Angeles -- 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.
