NBC may have unplugged "Lateline," but its star, Al Franken, told PEOPLE's Jennifer Zajac at last night's National Press Club dinner in Washington, D.C., that the sitcom is being shopped around to other networks. "I was kinda hoping the show would be picked up, (but) I don't know if that's going to happen," said Franken, whose latest book is titled "Why Not Me? The Inside Story of the Making and Unmaking of the Franken Presidency." As for things Presidential, Franken addressed some of the touchy issues that the Clinton Administration has thrust upon American households. Said Al to the Press Club: "I brought the kids into the living room, and I said, 'I love you, you're safe, the President isn't going to try to have sex with you.'"
