Other than that, and a fresh episode of "The Marshal," tonight's TV is as dull as Whitewater.* "Pee-wee's Big Adventure" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., Channel 2) -- CBS was already through with its Saturday-morning cycle of "Pee-wee's Playhouse" shows, and into reruns, when the Paul Reubens indecent-exposure scandal hit the news.

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.

THE SUSPICION lingers that William Donald Schaefer, far from having lost his marbles, knows exactly what he is about -- and that he is about to run for president.Note that the governor is getting national publicity these days, and it's publicity so sweet that Schaefer and his handlers couldn't buy it at any price. The latest is a two-page spread in Insight, the national news magazine published by the Washington Times. Under the headline "Governor Builds a Reputation as Pee-wee Herman of Politics," there's a picture of a smiling Schaefer, arms outstretched as though parting the Red Sea."

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.

PEE-WEE SAYS he didn't do it, which is good enough for me, although maybe not for all fans of the lovable little geek.To recap, the cops in Sarasota, Fla., arrested Paul Reubens (aka Pee-wee Herman) for indecent exposure in an adult-movie theater.Judging by the examples set by other giants of sports, politics and the entertainment industry, here is how you handle this sort of negative publicity these days.The first order of business (as Pee-wee quickly discovered) is: deny, deny, deny.Through your publicist, you issue a statement in which you claim to be "shocked and outraged" at the charges "which have no basis at all in fact."
