Neil Patrick Harris had been longing for the days when "Doogie" - as in Doogie Howser, M.D. - would not be attached to his name. And now that those days are here, Harris can't help but wonder: "Going from Doogie to Barney" - as in the irreverent character he plays in CBS' How I Met Your Mother - "is that a step up? It's more of a horizontal step, isn't it?" The moniker may not be a winner, but the role is proving to be. Harris' portrayal of suit-wearing sidekick Barney is one of the fall season's breakouts.

Now that "The Cosby Show" has taped its final episode, let it be said the show was indeed a good thing, very positive, inspiring, constructive and wholesome ... but ... really, wouldn't a tiny, just barely perceptible streak of perversity, have made it more interesting?Advertising Age asked its readers for piquant themes for "The Cosby Show" and they pounded out:* Mike Tyson, William Kennedy Smith and Clarence Thomas, guest-starring as themselves, gang up on Rudy on the playground during recess and beat her up.* Dr. Huxtable buys a Harley, joins the Hell's Angels, becomes known as "Dr. Death" and terrorizes Doogie Howser.

NBC calls "Tucker," its new sitcom about a 14-year-old boy (Eli Marienthal) and his divorced mom being forced to move in with her cranky older sister's family, a "coming of age" series. I say - grow up. The first three minutes of tonight's pilot are nothing but adolescent jokes about Tucker having an erection just as he and mom (Noelle Beck) are arriving at the too-too-perfect suburban home of Aunt Claire (Katey Sagal). By the fifth joke, I think even 12-year-old boys are going to be tired of the premise.
