Picks and Pans Review: Be Nice

Bad news: 1988 was the year of Geraldo. Good news: It's 1989 now. And our new President says this is a kinder, gentler nation. So let's prove him right. Let's save a network. Poor old CBS needs us. Last month the once-grand monarch of the airwaves scored the lowest prime-time, regular-season rating ever for any network. So this year, we kind and gentle TV fans should resolve to pick one CBS show and watch it: Newhart, Murphy Brown, Kate & Allie, Wiseguy, Beauty and the Beast or even the so-so CBS flick reviewed below. Charity begins on the couch.
