The first day of December brings us a new episode of "My So-Called Life," repeat episodes of "ER" and "Seinfeld," and a lot of activity on cable TV -- including Tom Snyder's final live appearance as a CNBC talk-show host.* "Mad About You" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., Channel 2) -- There's a lot of tentative network shuffling going on tonight, as test balloons are released in advance of setting midseason schedules for January.

Tom Snyder is back, and CBS has him. Charles Grodin is back, from wherever he was, and CNBC has him. And in a new sitcom on ABC, Corbin Bernsen is back, but who wants him?* "A Whole New Ballgame" (8:30 p.m.-9 p.m., Channel 2) -- Last week, Mr. Bernsen played a reprehensible misogynist in a Donna Mills made-for-TV movie about a wife-beater. The script was horrible, and so was Mr. Bernsen. Now the former "L.A. Law" star plays his second chauvinist jerk of 1995, starring as a baseball player turned TV sportscaster in this astoundingly unfunny sitcom.

If you're a fan of old movies, this may be a good day to call in sick, cash in those eight hours of annual leave or program your VCR to work overtime.

Last anyone heard, Mr. Sinatra is still 80, and people are still wanting to wish him well. Performers at this fete, taped last month in Los Angeles, include Tony Bennett, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Natalie Cole and Little Richard.

Smart, beautiful and confident enough not to wear hosiery under her expensive suits, Meredith immediately unnerves employees at DigiCom Computers, where she is the new vice president. Especially computer designer Tom Snyder (Michael Douglas), who thought the V.P. job was his.Tom should be nervous, because Meredith is interested in more than his mainframe.
