Yeah, George Clooney's Batman. And sure, he's making all sorts of hearts flutter on "ER." But remember back a few years, when no one knew who ol' George was?It wasn't that long ago, as witnessed by "Sisters" (1 a.m.-2 a.m., Lifetime), the frenetic drama about growing up in a female-dominated household that always kept things interesting on NBC's Saturday nights. Clooney played Falconer, husband to Sela Ward's Teddy (now there's an attractive couple), and tonight, Teddy keeps having nightmares that her hubby dies in a plane crash.

SUN SCORE *** There's a surprising touch of ingenuity to How To Lose a Guy In 10 Days that somehow manages to keep the film, about two people forcing themselves to act unpleasant, from being as annoying as they are. It's a relatively simple trick, really, a matter of constantly reminding the audience that they're in on the joke. Thus, there are constant winking asides from stars Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, little to-themselves moments, with no one other than the camera watching, when they let their guard down and act the way they would act naturally (which, in their case, is quite endearingly)

Robert Klein sounds like an athlete making a comeback."I had to ask myself, 'Can I do this?' " he relates in a recent telephone interview. "The answer is yes. The show's come back. . . . They're going to see me pretty sharp."The comedian/actor is talking about performing stand-up comedy again after a hiatus of a few years. On Sunday, he'll present "A Night of Laughter" at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium, a benefit for the Sheppard Pratt Care for Kids Fund.The show represents an on-the-road tryout of material Mr. Klein is planning for an "HBO Comedy Hour" special, to be taped next month at Haverford College in Pennsylvania for a December telecast.

FREDERICK -- They come here from Way Out There, from just about every state you can name, traveling thousands of miles in the big rigs, hauling what the United States eats and wears and uses. Robert Klein, for instance, left his home in Nebraska and made stops in Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, picked up a cargo of frozen seafood, then traveled cross-country to New Jersey and Pennsylvania before winding up in Maryland.And he did all this in too short a time to mention, which means maybe he stretched the rules on driving without rest.

Yalies have been in the forefront of the political scene in recent days, with George W. Bush ('68), Joseph Lieberman ('64) and Dick Cheney ('63) on the ballot. And today, another facet of the university will be showcased, with alumni participating in a bicoastal celebration of the 100th year of the undergraduate Yale Dramatic Association and the 75th year of the Yale School of Drama. The gala event, "Stage Blue," for which Jodie Foster, Meryl Streep and Sam Waterston are honorary chairs, will occur simultaneously at Manhattan's New Amsterdam Theater in New York and the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California with events in each city broadcast via satellite to the other location.
