Frank Zappa, the rock-star icon from the '60s, tonight begins a three-day stint as guest host of cable's Financial News Network. His forum: FNN's Focus series. But the topics won't be the state of rock, his 25 years of innovation and playful experiments in music, or any kind of music at all. They are, however, in the Zappa tradition: eclectic. Tonight's show looks at U.S. business opportunities in the Soviet Union. He taped segments during a January trip to Moscow, Paris and Czechoslovakia, where he met that country's new president, Vaclav Havel.

I signed off from the AM radio band Friday. Starting Monday, I will be heard exclusively on SiriusXM's POTUS Channel 124. After 23 years on a terrestrial radio platform, this represents a major change. But while many see it as a futuristic move, given that 24 million Americans now have satellite radios, I refer to it as a return to my roots. My inauspicious start two decades ago was as the guest of a guest host. Advertising guru Brian Tierney was himself filling in on WWDB-FM (96.5), "the Talk Station," when he invited me. I was hooked from the first minute the "on air" light went on, a combination of ego and the belief that I could develop a skill set. I still have the letter I then wrote to the station owner, Chuck Schwartz, seeking a gig. (He gave me a meeting after Larry Kane put in a good word.)

Collins: A dream come true She's been a frequent guest host, so it wasn't a big surprise Monday when comic Michelle Collins , 34, was named a permanent cohost on gabshow The View . The 15th host to join the show since it launched in 1997, Collins is replacing Rosie Perez . "I couldn't be happier to join such an awesome, smart, accomplished, and funny group of women," she said in a statement. "Ever since the age of 4 . . . it's been my dream to host a talk show.

The mercury may be falling but, as far as CBS is concerned, it's bathing suit time. Time for the Miss U.S.A. pageant, that is. The pageant, to be televised live on Feb. 17 from 9-11 p.m. on Channel 10, has been moved from May until the more-important ratings month of February. This year, Bob Barker and Mary Frann will be hosting from White Sands, N.M. MAGIC MEMORIES If asked, Mike Bowe might not have picked such a revealing way to celebrate his 10th anniversary on WMGK-FM 103. But, hey, nobody asked him. His wife, Deborah, supplied MGK with some of Mike's early bloopers and audition tapes that will be aired throughout today.

SENESCENCE You know you're getting old when not only are the bands on "Saturday Night Live" unknown to you, you have no idea who the guest host is. - Ron Avery. FIRST ROUND LAST ROUND Howard Eskin reported prematurely that Charles Barkley's knee miseries could keep him out of the opening round of the playoffs.

You can come back down off the window ledge now. Supermodel Christy Turlington is NOT hanging up her catwalking heels for sensible school shoes. The reports of Turlington's retirement were just vicious rumors, according to columnist Liz Smith. Although Turlington is in her sophomore year as an NYU liberal arts major, Smith says she will have time to keep up with the fashion shows and photo shoots. After all, Smith notes, Turlington now is shilling Eternity and Maybelline products in ads, and is on the cover of this month's Marie Claire magazine.

Milton Berle, the comedian whose Tuesday night "Texaco Star Theater" was so popular in TV's early days that he became known as "Mr. Television," has written a new book on his experiences. He calls it "B.S. I Love You: Sixty Years with the Famous and Infamous," and he'll discuss it at 11 tonight on the Larry King show on WIP (AM/610) with guest host Dan Schorr. Born 79 years ago, Berle made his show-biz debut performing in a film at age 5, starting a career that in recent years has centered once again on acting, some in serious dramatic roles.

She didn't lick her chops on camera - at least, not literally. But Gov. Whitman, sitting in last night as guest host on CNN's Larry King Live, did the next best thing as she savored the sweetness of turning the tables on the press: She unflinchingly went straight to a commercial break when potential problems arose. When Lesley Stahl of CBS' 60 Minutes sympathized with Whitman over the difficulties in getting television air time - especially, Stahl said innocently, because New Jersey has no television station of its own - Whitman quickly corrected her. "Oh, we do," the governor said, then deftly signaled for a break.

CAN WE TALK about Joan Rivers? Because she'd hate it if we didn't. Rivers, 81, who died yesterday at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital a week after going into cardiac arrest during vocal-cord surgery in a doctor's office, wasn't just a fashion critic with an unfiltered mouth, a QVC jewelry line and a penchant for plastic surgery. Oh, she was unapologetically all those things, as well as the author of a dozen books, including this year's Diary of a Mad Diva . But long before Rivers patrolled the red carpet, enforced style rules on E!

Rosie spent a combative eight months on "The View," ending in 2007, feuding with the likes of Donald Trump and Rupert Murdoch , and the show's ratings went up. But after a nasty on-air argument with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck , Rosie asked out of her contract. Elisabeth is now a co-host of "Fox and Friends," on Fox News, and she was highly critical of ABC bringing Rosie back, basically calling her anti-military.

Allen Funt was one of TV's true visionaries. He realized how flustered we all get when the rules are suddenly changed without warning. And how funny we look when we're the only one not in on the joke. Simple, universal, hilarious. Candid Camera used hidden lenses to capture that priceless reaction and the show ran - forever. In 2003, Ashton Kutcher was savvy enough to adapt Funt's concept for our modern tabloid era, when celebrities have been deified. The result, MTV's Punk'd, made well-known young performers the hapless victims of elaborately arranged pranks and videotaped the results.

It was a rough opening night Saturday for Charlie Sheen's vaunted "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option" tour. The volatile actor was all but egged by the crowd at Detroit's Fox Theatre. The standing ovation that greeted him turned to boos and chants of "refund" from the audience, many of whom walked out before the 70-minute show ended abruptly. After the first heckler, Sheen responded, "I've already got your money, dude. " That did not sit well with the crowd.
