The bland blond leading the bland blond. That's The Perfect Man, starring Heather Locklear as a single mother and master baker with a pathological amorous MO. First, after a period of relentless flirtation, she engages in a dead-end relationship with a not-good-enough or downright doggy man. Next, she takes flight to another city or town, with her two daughters in tow, when the guy inevitably disappoints her. Her 16-year-old (Hilary Duff) attempts to break the pattern when the family moves to Brooklyn.

Ring the bells! Blow the horns! Toot the whistles! Wave the flags! At last it has been found! The worst new show of the 1990-91 television season!That most coveted honor goes to "Going Places," which premieres on ABC tonight. It is one of the dumbest ideas for a series since Mr. T and Tina met.The half-hour "Going Places," which will be on Channel 13 (WJZ) at 9:30, is something of a clone of "Three's Company," with the John Ritter role divided between two brothers.As if a rejuvenation of that leer-and-a-wink show wasn't enough, "Going Places" is out of the Miller-Boyett family warmedy factory.

Tonight's prime-time lineup is so filled with soap, you could wash all the dishes in China -- and all the china, too. In addition to "Melrose Place" and "Models Inc.," there's the sudsy conclusion to "Texas Justice."* "The Nanny." (8-8:30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Just a fast warning, if you usually watch this show with your preschoolers: Tonight's episode, with guest star Shari Lewis, concerns the possibility that the family dog may have accidentally made a meal of Lamb Chop. (If this should occur, Ms. Lewis would probably seek litigation, a courtroom maneuver known as Chop Suey.

The last Monday night of the November sweeps has all the usual ingredients: the standard lineup on CBS, a strong football game on ABC and a tossaway made-for-TV movie on NBC. However, viewers should turn to PBS and HBO."Melrose Place" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- "Melrose Place" has been slowly but steadily improving, and tonight's show finally sets Amanda (Heather Locklear) back on a course that makes her more vamp than wimp."Nova: Odyssey of Life" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., MPT, Channels 22, 67)

And you have: In movies and television, in soap operas and perhaps even in your own workplace, the scenario -- real or perceived -- of a woman conniving and back-stabbing to one-up a rival is a familiar one.And it's one that turns us into rubberneckers: We simply can't stop watching, regardless of how unseemly it gets.

Who's Gone Mad?In your July 22 editorial, "Have Clinton's Critics Gone Mad?", in reference to the reaction of President Clinton's new policy on gays in the military, I think it is you who have gone mad.Why should you expect gays and lesbians, who are taxpaying Americans, to be satisfied by seeing members of their community continue to face discrimination in the work place? The issue of gays in the military is really one of equality and justice.President Clinton's new policy still relegates lesbians and gays to second-class citizenship by treating us as less equal and under a different standard of justice.
