No doubt "Joan Lunden's Healthy Cooking" (Little Brown, $24.95) -- a combination cookbook and personal weight-loss story -- will sell millions of copies. It could inspire thousands of her fans to try to cast off the pounds nature has generously bestowed on them.That's what happens when you are the immensely popular, well-hyped, media-engineered fixture on ABC's "Good Morning America" for more than 20 years. Not since the publication of "In the Kitchen With Rosie" by Oprah Winfrey's cook, Rosie Daley, has a TV-related cookbook taken off with such celerity.

Generally speaking, most people do not like to question their own long-held beliefs. Usually this is because long-held beliefs are absorbed -- in a process that resembles psychological osmosis -- from our families and our culture.And, of course, once they have settled in, most of us don't like to stir up these comfortable assumptions. Still, like it or not, occasionally something will happen that just goes ahead and raises our consciousness anyway. You can tell when this is happening because it's usually accompanied by the Click!

Brew your own beerMicrobreweries are popping up everywhere, but in California there is a new twist to home brewing. At the Hamilton Gregg Brewworks in Hermosa Beach, patrons are actually brewing their own beer from a choice of 35 recipes. Unfortunately for travelers, some of the process takes up to a couple of weeks. About two weeks after mixing and brewing, patrons return to bottle their beer and place their personally designed label on a case of 48 bottles. "U-Brews" have been popular in Canada for a number of years, but this is a first for the United States.

Tonight's TV lineup includes trashy quickie specials by NBC and Fox, and a new "Northern Exposure" in which Rob Morrow, as Joel, finally leaves the show for good. This will disappoint some viewers of "Northern Exposure," and confuse others, who thought he already had left a few times over the past several months.* "All-Star Ultra TV Censored Bloopers" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., Channel 11) -- Another prime-time showcase for recycled outtakes -- presented by Dick Clark, who is recycling his own "Bloopers" concept specials from the '70s (and it wasn't even an original idea then)
