This week Fox offers Parker Lewis Can't Lose, a sitcom about a teenage sharpie who's way too cool for high school. Hold on there, Bobalooey. Didn't we review that last week? Well, same concept, different cast. That was Ferris Bueller on NBC. The new season will give you ample reason to think you're seeing double. Like passengers on the ramp to Noah's Ark, the shows are rolling up in matched sets. Want a behind-the-scenes drama about a local news team? Then watch E.N.G on cable (reviewed below) or wait a few weeks for WIOU on CBS. Have an inexplicable craving for sitcoms about out-of-town kids adjusting to the Hollywood lifestyle? Choose between NBC's Fresh Prince of Bel Air or Fox's Class of Beverly Hills. Enjoy big musical production numbers before a commercial? There's ABC's Cop Rock and NBC's Hull High. Take your pick. They say great minds think alike. Apparently that also applies to TV producers.
