Carol Burnett returns with a new variety special -- lending some variety to an otherwise too-quiet night. During the day, though, two new series premiere that are welcome offerings for pre-school viewers. They're arriving in the Nick of time, as part of the Nick Jr. lineup on Nickelodeon.* "Melrose Place." (8-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Some of the hospital staffers take a modeling job -- which might mean a temporary relocation to "Models Inc." That spinoff show is in desperate need of some ratings help, so it wouldn't surprise me. Fox.* "Danielle Steel's 'Family Album.

Danielle Steel and Scott Turow are all wet. So are more than a thousand books by other novelists after a fire sprinkler malfunctioned in the Towson library yesterday minutes before the library opened, drenching the fiction shelves. "It just went off, a huge rush of water," said librarian Joe Thompson, who was standing near the fiction section putting books onto shelves when the sprinkler erupted. "I just stared for the first couple seconds." Thompson and other workers sprang into action, ripping books from the shelves and grabbing wastebaskets to bail the mounting pools of water.

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.

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.

ONE LOOK AT "Kaleidoscope," NBC's movie tonight, tells you both why Danielle Steel sells a zillion of the books she churns out and why they make such lousy movies.And that's not lousy in the way a Judith Krantz or Jackie Collins book is lousy -- a low-taste, trashy, offensive sort of way -- but lousy in the sense that they just don't have the stuff to make it on the screen."Kaleidoscope," which will be on Channel 2 (WMAR) at 9 o'clock, is the opening jab in the combination NBC has to counter this week's sports programming.
