NEW YORK -- Energy at last. After seven days of countless runway shows devoted to '70s retro, a new decade breaks the sameness. The '20s roared down Anna Sui's runway in the shape of supermodels Linda, Nadja, Naomi and Shalom, who have kept themselves scarce during the week of fall fashion collections here.New York's hip, downtown diva saw that the bin of thrift-shop chic ideas has been picked clean and she stepped up to an older vintage style.English eccentrics were her inspiration, and she mixed plaids, tweeds, laces and velvets with the abandon of a nanny on speed.

If you're interested in movies of mice and men -- or, to state it another way, if you're interested in movies "Of Mice and Men" -- the Showtime cable network has the evening's most intriguing offering. It's presenting back-to-back prime-time presentations of two film versions, made more than 50 years apart, of the classic John Steinbeck story.* "The Nanny" (8-8:30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- If you've watched Cloris Leachman in any of Mel Brooks' productions, from "Young Frankenstein" to her Teutonic Ms. Frick on TV's short-lived "The Nutt House," you know what kind of nanny she can play -- and, on tonight's episode of "The Nanny," she does.

A WASHINGTON lawyer friend of mine named Michael Spekter called me in the middle of the night and said excitedly, "What do you think of this? I've been reading up on the new attorney general appointee, Janet Reno, who maintains that she doesn't have a 'nanny' problem because she has no children."Listen to this. She's got guts, she has integrity and doesn't take any stuff from anybody. Furthermore, she was a great state's attorney, she's single, and she has a mind of her own."There's more.

A trio of season-ending repeats from last season can only mean one thing: premiere month is hard upon us, and new episodes can't be far beyond.Unfortunately, that's not true of NBC's "Wings" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11), which repeats May's season- and series-ending finale, as the gang goes on a wild hunt for riches after finding an old suitcase containing a cryptic note from the late father of Joe (Tim Daly) and Brian (Steven Weber).But both CBS' "The Nanny" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13)

In the 1 1/2 years she's been a single working mother, Christin Spain has been through three nannies. In her search, there have been women she couldn't afford to hire -- but not for the reason you might think.One woman who applied for the job wanted to be paid "under the table" because she lived in a subsidized housing complex and didn't want her rent to go up. But Ms. Spain, the manager of a Radio Shack store in York, Pa., needed to do everything by the book -- pay employment and Social Security taxes -- so that she could claim the year-end tax credit for child care that helps her make ends meet.

This is the day on which the syndicated TV market goes crazy, with first-run shows and off-network reruns added to the mix -- including new talk shows headed by Suzanne Somers and Gordon Elliott. The more noteworthy news, however, is prime time, where this week before the "official" fall season looks a lot like the first week OF the fall season.* "Coach." (8-8:30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- It always made sense, to me, to consider moving "Coach" to Monday nights, where it could lead quite nicely into the same network's "Monday Night Football."

"Medically, humor and laughter have been shown to physically help people to cope with the tensions of modern life," says the character of the nanny in "Baby With the Bathwater," Christopher Durang's black comedy about the do's -- and especially the dont's -- of child-rearing.The tone of Fells Point Corner Theatre's production is established with the first glimpse of the brightly colored, cartoon-like set. Though most of the furniture is painted on the walls, it defies logic; occasionally a three-dimensional drawer pops open, or a lamp actually lights up.Co-designed by Jim Slivka and Jim Sizemore, this set is a fitting metaphor for Durang's humor, which can be as silly as the funny pages or as dark as the abyss, and frequently is both at once.
