THE TV SCHEDULE IS SUDDENLY Busier than the suntan-lotion technician on the set of Baywatch. Let us begin with the fountainhead of all sentient life: game shows. Who returns this week as the solicitor general on Family Feud after a nine-year absence? Show ussss...Richard Dawson! There's also a new nighttime spinoff of The Price Is Right, with The Young & the Restless star Doug Davidson serving as host (a fitting choice given what a steamy soap opera Bob Barker has turned the daytime version into of late). And there's a new face on Wheel of Fortune. Very new. This week, Vanna White, America's favorite semiotician, is bringing her infant son Nicholas to work. One final note: I have thus far had no trouble resisting the blandishments of Melrose Place. Then came this week's masterstroke: casting SPORTS ILLUSTRATED model Kathy Ireland. Melrose Place, I surrender.
