So much for America's love affair with Jane Pauley.NBC has pulled "Real Life With Jane Pauley" and "Expose" from its primetime schedule and will replace them with "Matlock" starting Friday at 8 on WMAR-TV (Channel 2).The network, which has gotten off to a bad start in the ratings race, tried to put the best face on the move by announcing that Pauley will return in March as co-host of a new show. NBC said that show will be a combination of "Real Life" and "Expose," though, the format has yet to be established.

Buckley Jr. (Doonesbury's Greatest Hits: A Mid-Seventies Revue, Holt,...

Report on Mrs. BushBarbara Bush dipped into Sidney Sheldon and Scott Turow over the summer, took a fancy to television's "America's Funniest Home Videos" but was baffled by Bart Simpson and his acid-tongued cartoon family.

This would appear to be the scariest of times for Katherine Couric, who officially took over as co-anchor on NBC's "Today" show barely two weeks ago.But for someone supposedly frying on the hottest of hot seats, Couric seems remarkably composed. And secure. Evenself-deprecating."I just liken this whole thing to a modern-day morality play, with boring old me coming in at the end to save the kingdom," quipped Couric with a chuckle in a telephone interview from New York.By "this whole thing," Couric is referring to the soap opera that has been "Today" ever since Jane Pauley left the show after 13 years in January 1990.

"Dateline NBC," the network's new magazine show featuring Jane Pauley and Stone Phillips, is wall-to-wall touchy-feely, come-on-baby-light-my-fire TV journalism.There's a story on a 79-year-old widow in rural Iowa who lost her life's savings to a Washington lawyer who specializes in misleading direct mail solicitations. The segment features reporter Brian Ross as the knight on white horse championing her cause, tracking down the lawyer and confronting him with the ultimate weapon, a videotape of his victim's anguish.

Los Angeles. -- I heard a couple of middle-aged white working women talking the other night about affirmative action.The first one, in her mid-40s, was talking about getting her first job out of college: ''I don't know whether it was a quota or whatever. But that's why they were looking for a girl. They had to get a girl, and I was really cheap.''The second one, in her early 50s, was nodding in agreement. She said: ''Well, pre-affirmative action . . . when I was going around, looking for these jobs early on, people said out loud and without any hesitation, 'We don't hire women to do that.

ON AND OFF THE AIR:* Talk about life imitating art -- or at least getting all tangled up together. Tonight's "Real Life With Jane Pauley" (at 9:30, Channel 2) is devoted to an interview with actress Candice Bergen, a.k.a. "Murphy Brown."Does anybody else wish that interviewer and interviewee could switch roles so that Bergen, in her tough TV persona, could ask Pauley a good question?"Jane, you seem to be sitting pretty after all that nastiness with the 'Today' show and Deborah Norville and all. So exactly when do you get the evening anchor chair beside Tom Brokaw on a permanent basis?"
