Jamie Buchman's pregnancy has reached the stage of "keep a bag packed and the number of a taxi handy." The countdown on the longest gestation period in the history of humanity (it began 12 months ago) is at four weeks. The baby will finally arrive in an hourlong, season-ending episode of Mad About You on May 20. The next four shows will be held hostage, as the entire season has been, to the imminent blessed (but not for all fans) event. There is little hope that the situation will get better next season for those who preferred the pre-pregnancy Mad About You. If anything, it is likely to deteriorate further into the likes of ABC's TGIF lineup.

Editor's Note: At the annual summer press tour, the networks parade the stars and producers of their fall shows for the nation's television writers. A rip-roaring argument can clear the air and jump-start a sputtering relationship. On the other hand, having a baby is the worst possible way to repair a ruptured marriage. Jamie and Paul Buchman - aka Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser - will learn which scenario applies to them this fall on Mad About You. The ramifications of the NBC sitcom's season-ending episodes are obviously causing concern.

I`d love to appear in Aliens III if they`d let me come back as my good twin. The book I`ve been recommending lately is: The Confederacy of Dunces, by John Kennedy Toole. Favorite pigout food: Whatever is out there.

"The Paul Reiser Show" is a hybrid melding of sitcom and reality. Unfortunately, the comedy isn't funny and the reality isn't believable. Reiser plays himself, a former sitcom star, who has been invisible since "Mad About You" left the air 12 years ago. He's put on a few pounds and lost some hair. But his biggest loss is Helen Hunt as his co-star. His new co-stars don't provide the support or appeal she did. Paul figures it's time to go back to work. But doing what? The most clever vignette in the first four episodes has Paul and Larry David competing for the host role on a new game show.

Strange Relations has a strange premise for a comedy. Jerry Lipman, a prosperous 40-year-old party animal and ladies man, is thunderstruck when a physical reveals he's dying from an aggressive form of leukemia. Without a bone marrow transplant, he won't see 41. Prospects are glum. Siblings are generally the most compatible donors and Jerry is an only child. At least he thinks he is. His predicament forces his mother to disclose a secret she has kept from him his whole life. He was adopted.

Paul Reiser tells a photographer his new movie is a father-and-son story, and she wants to know which he plays. "I play the father, and Peter Falk plays my baby boy," he replies with a perfectly straight face. The former Mad About You star is a funny guy, and as The Aristocrats showed, he can also get dirty when the occasion calls. But The Thing About My Folks, which he wrote, co-produced and stars in, is a subject close to his heart. He wrote the film, in which he plays Falk's son, as a tribute to his dad, who died in 1989.

One of the promotional lines for Cross My Heart says, "Don`t go on your next date until you see Cross My Heart." The next line should read: "And when you go on that all-important third date, forget everything you`ve seen in Cross My Heart." This film, which spans the evening of the "all-important third date" between yuppie loners, played by Martin Short and Annette O`Toole, is like sitting in the audience of The Love Connection -- you only hear about some of the details on the TV show.

The virtues of Neil Simon`s newest screen comedy The Marrying Man are almost upstaged by press reports of the on-the-set shenanigans of its stars Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin. The two fell in love, apropos of the script, and caused havoc with the production, as reported in Premiere magazine. Perhaps strife is the godmother of screen success. There`s more to like than dislike about this loopy couple of characters who can`t keep their hands off each other. Baldwin, fresh from the role of a suburban sociopath in Miami Blues, has never been more personable.

There was at least as much drama in the audience as in front of the cameras when Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt taped the one-hour season finale of their NBC Mad About You series that airs this week. During a break in the taping, the show's host introduced Mad About You fan Ross Fischman, a clothing salesman, to the audience. Fischman dropped to one knee and proposed to his beloved, legal secretary Nancy Kreisel. She said yes and the crowd cheered. Reiser invited the newly betrothed couple to serve as extras in the episode.
It`s another night for PBS with a Barney and friends 1990 concert taped in Dallas (8 p.m., WPBT-Ch. 2) and Gloria Estefan performing her hits on the music show Center Stage (9:10 p.m.). Fox burns off a new TV movie about a villainous computerized office tower that has it in for a new worker played by Paul Reiser (8 p.m., WSVN-Ch. 7; WFLX-Ch. 29). -- DEBORAH WILKER

The thing about my folks is, I know they're going to enjoy The Thing About My Folks. It's a semi-autobiographical look at family from comedian Paul Reiser of Mad About You fame. Did I enjoy it? Not so much. But the point here, for once, is not about me. It's about my parents. The Thing About My Folks is going to appeal big time to many older Floridians who maintain a certain standard of cinematic nostalgia. Reiser, himself nearing 50, has tapped into the era that stylistically preceded the jump cut, the MTV strobe-effect edit, sudden blasts of so-called music, and raunchy language used for comic effect.

Paul Reiser had it right, right from the start of Mad About You. "From the beginning, I always thought this show would end with the birth of a baby," he said. It did. Reiser, who is executive producer as well as co-star of the NBC sitcom, just didn't realize it. He squeezed two more seasons out of a show that had lost its center: two young adults who quickly fell in love learning about each other on the fly. Children are wonderful and there are wonderful shows with children. However, Mad About You was an adult party.

In the 1994 classic episode "Virtual Reality", Paul's virtual fantasy comes true with supermodel guest star Christie Brinkley.

The horn of plenty has been a traditional symbol for November. It has been this way for the television networks, too. To service the first important ratings sweeps period of the new season as well as the crush of pre-holiday advertising, November has generally brought a cornucopia of glitzy programming. The sweeps are four-week periods of intensive audience measurement to set local ad rates, and hence a time when the networks generally serve their prime attractions to entice viewers. This year, however, the November sweeps -- which begin Thursday and extend through Nov. 25 (Thanksgiving Eve)

Bob Wright's prayers have been answered. Now he has to worry about getting what he asked for. The NBC president dropped to his knees during the midseason press tour and made a mock plea toward the heavens that Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser would return for another season of Mad About You. Just hours before Hunt won an Oscar Monday night, NBC announced that she and Reiser had re-upped for another year. The figure quoted is a budget-busting $1 million apiece per episode, reportedly four times what they are making now. When the Seinfeld gang held up NBC a year ago, pushing the cost of TV's most popular comedy to about $5 million per episode _ roughly 10 times the standard for a half-hour show _ NBC explained its extravagance by saying it didn't mind paying for success.
