WAIKIKI BEACH, Hawaii -- Sometimes you don't have to grow up. Sometimes a man can be a boy forever.A century's worth of progress has rendered the streets of Waikiki cluttered and teeming. But just offshore, the arc of Mamala Bay and the pulse of the Pacific still converge and form a small wave as lovely and gentle as exists. And some of the men who ride these waves persist with a free-spirited, ocean-loving life like nowhere else: the Waikiki Beach boy.Here, a youngster can aspire to surf and swim, to paddle the outriggers and sail the catamarans.

Honolulu, Hawaii -- In the photos of Waikiki in my father's World War II Navy scrapbook, the Royal Hawaiian Hotel stands alone -- surrounded on three sides by coconut groves and parkland, with the beach and the Pacific Ocean at its doorstep.Today, the Royal Hawaiian, also known as the Pink Palace of the Pacific, is a distinctive oasis of style and glamour in this beachfront resort area of Honolulu, amid a sea of concrete and steel high-rises that wouldn't look out of place in the New York City skyline.

CBS is premiering two summer series tonight, figuring that when the competition is weakest, viewers are more likely to settle for less. Since there's virtually nothing else on broadcast TV, the network is basically right.* "One West Waikiki" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Cheryl Ladd stars in this new CBS cop show, which casts her as a female "Quincy, M. E." She's a forensic pathologist working in Hawaii -- and though tropical settings haven't exactly been guarantees of success in the cases of, say, "Key West," "Going to Extremes" and "The Byrds of Paradise," forensic pathology has never been hotter.

Honolulu, on Hawaii's island of Oahu, is a city rich in both history and beauty. Sixty-seven years ago today, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, killing nearly 2,400 people and wounding more than 1,000. Jan. 17 will mark the 115th anniversary of the bloodless coup in which American colonists overthrew the Hawaiian monarchy. And on Jan. 20, more history will be made: The Honolulu-born Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th U.S. president. If you want to experience some of Honolulu's beauty, head to Waikiki Beach for white sand and cerulean ocean.

Thursdays have one fewer good show on the schedule now that "The Simpsons" has moved to Sundays. But it still has "Mad About You," "Seinfeld" and "Frasier," even though they're all still repeats.* "Mad About You" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Now that "The Simpsons" isn't opposite this show, perhaps even more people will discover "Mad About You" -- and that's good, because Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt deserve a larger audience for the clever and funny work they're doing here. Tonight's repeat features Julia Sweeney, who plays the androgynous "Pat" character on "Saturday Night Live."
