>CHANNEL 99 A pilot: Marilu Henner plays a big-city TV mogul who returns to her hometown's pathetic little station. (NBC, Thurs., Aug. 4, 9:30 p.m.)

PEOPLE MAGAZINE ON TV A show based on this mag. It wasn't ready for review. Whew! My job is safe for another week. (CBS, Thurs., Aug. 4, 10 p.m.)

WHATTLEY BY THE BAY Another pilot: Richard Gilliland as a big-city newspaper mogul who returns to his hometown. We smell a trend here. (CBS, Tues., Aug. 9, 8 p.m.)

SNIFF One more pilot: Robert Wuhl adopts a dog with a good nose. I'm not making this up. Somebody got paid to make this up. (CBS, Tues., Aug. 9, 8:30 p.m.)
