People who can't name the U.S. secretary of state or locate Florida on a map can tell you exactly what they think Pee-wee Herman was doing on the evening of Friday, July 26, 1991, in a porno house in Sarasota, Fla. Some will even remember the name of the theater and what it was showing the day Pee-wee, alias Paul Reubens, was arrested there. (Answers: the South Trail Cinema; "Nancy Nurse," "Turn Up the Heat" and "Tiger Shark.")When the news hit, the TV and movie star's own lawyer pronounced his career dead -- proof that even Hollywood lawyers don't know everything.

Maybe Martin Short isn't for everyone. And maybe the fact that I've talked to Hollywood types for 27 years makes me part of a small and peculiar audience that savors the weirdness of the celebrity interview. But, that said, I am crazy about "Primetime Glick," the new Comedy Central series that stars Short as Jiminy Glick, interviewer of Hollywood stars. "Primetime Glick" is a spoof of late-night TV talk shows, with Short playing an overweight, self-important hack host whose interviews consist of misinformation, mispronunciations, innuendo, cliches and inane questions.

Fox has a new medical series premiering tonight, but in the long view of things, tonight's most memorable event probably is an appearance by Paul Reubens on "Murphy Brown."* "Melrose Place" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., Channel 45) -- Just for the record: On a recent episode of "Homicide: Life on the Street," Ned Beatty's Bolander, recuperating after surgery on his bullet-pierced skull, removed his hat at the end of one show to reveal a shockingly graphic scar -- the best, and perhaps only, one similarly revealed since Marcia Cross, as Kimberly, flipped her wig last season on "Melrose Place."

Celebrities have rushed to the support of Paul Reubens, known as Pee-wee Herman, who was arrested Friday night on charges of indecent exposure in a Sarasota, Fla., adult-movie theater. "I've been his friend for nine years. This is terribly, terribly sad," said Joan Rivers. "If it is true, which I hope it isn't, I'm sure he's going to go for help, because he's sensitive and he's smart."Longtime pal Cyndi Lauper noted, "Paul has already been unfairly tried by the media. The alleged charge is a petty victimless occurrence.

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - Judy Garland will always be Dorothy. David Caruso will always be that fool who left "NYPD Blue." And Paul Reubens, well, he'll always be that goofy and lovable imp Pee-wee Herman. So it was Pee-wee whom I expected to meet and greet at a recent press junket for "Blow," the biographical film about the rise and fall of former cocaine dealer George Jung, starring Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz and Reubens. But that's not who walked into the suite at the Standard Hotel.
