CBS (Wed., Aug. 13, 9 p.m. ET)


This feel-good newsmagazine, first seen in January, is in the middle of a five-show summer run (it's on again Aug. 27 and Sept. 3). The folksy approach hasn't changed, but the program now offers viewers a chance to scout three reporters who will be regulars on the upcoming Public Eye with Bryant Gumbel. Alison Stewart has an Aug. 13 story on a young woman who goes from living on the street to winning a Smith College scholarship. As is her style, Stewart conveys the impression that she's not only observing the subject but palling around with her. Bernard Goldberg takes a friendly but mildly skeptical look at two brothers developing a revolutionary car engine. And Peter Van Sant gets so chummy with a learning-disabled couple that he feels free to tease them about their sex life. We trust Mr. Gumbel will straighten him out.
