"The Office" is not the place to be on Saturday nights.I'm talking about the new CBS sitcom "The Office," which premieres at 9 tonight on WJZ (Channel 13).The CBS public relations department calls the series "An 'Upstairs, Downstairs' look at office life in America." Right, and "Married . . . With Children" is an "Upstairs, Downstairs" look at the shoe business in America."The Office" does have Valerie Harper ("Rhoda") in the lead and some experienced hands behind the camera.

And as a comedic actor, for most roles, you couldn't go wrong.Allen has never been better in all three departments than he is tomorrow night in an ABC made-for-TV movie version of his hit play, "Don't Drink the Water."The 1966 play, which became a feature film starring Jackie Gleason two years later, is one of the truly memorable comedies of the 1960s.
