IF YOU'RE looking to make some money, becoming a surgeon was a good way to go. But with health-care costs out of control and malpractice insurance through the roof, being a surgeon may still be better than being a fast-food worker, but the real money is in playing a surgeon on a hit TV show. Now that Patrick Dempsey is splitting with both "Grey's Anatomy" and his wife, Jillian Fink , the couple are putting their Frank Gehry -designed Malibu home on the market.

It looks as if the Malibu, Chevrolet's midsize sedan, has been "Civicked. " When the redesigned 2012 Honda Civic was roughly received by the automotive press, Honda didn't wait around several years for the usual mid-cycle refresh. It immediately went to work addressing the shortcomings and came out with a significantly revised version of its compact sedan the very next model year. Chevy has done the same thing with the Malibu it had redesigned for the 2013 model year after journalistic disappointment and disappointing sales left the GM division's marketeers feeling faint and nauseous.

The Malibu began life in 1964 as the Chevelle Malibu. The Beach Boys were in flower and this was your father's kind of Chevrolet. It was among a number of '60s machines worshipped at the altar of muscularity. The 1968 Chevy Chevelle Malibu convertible, for example, was available with a 427 cubic-inch V-8 that developed 435 horsepower. Button that engine to a four-on-the-floor manual gearbox and you could engender enough standing start tire smoke to shut down three miles of I-95. (And if your dad ever owned that 427 ragtop, I bet he wishes he still had it. NADA Guides says that car, in nice condition and equipped with options like the Rally Sport Package and the L89 aluminum heads, has a retail value of $63,000.)

* MALIBU COUNTRY. 8:30 p.m. Friday, 6 ABC. I'M NOT sure what it is about Reba McEntire that screams "wronged wife," but the singer-actress embarks on her second sitcom Friday in a role that once again has her starting over after marriage to a cheater. In ABC's "Malibu Country," she's doing the leaving, taking her kids and her mother (Lily Tomlin) and fleeing Nashville, Tenn. - and her country star husband - for the Malibu, Calif., house she never even knew she had, hoping to restart the singing career she put aside years earlier.

Welcome to Malibu Country , the land that time forgot. Reba's sitcom, getting a late and lethargic jump on the new season, is supposedly set in the present, but it's enveloped in such a strong '70s and '80s haze, you'll swear you're watching it on Betamax. The premise is that Reba (the country singer formerly known as Reba McEntire) is a country singer named Reba McKenzie who put her career on hold to raise her two kids, Cash (Justin Prentice) and June (Juliette Angelo). Too bad the title Carter Country was already taken - by a '70s sitcom starring Victor French and the immortal Guich Koock.

When the 2008 Philadelphia International Auto Show opens its doors in about a year, General Motors will likely have lost its status as the number-one automaker worldwide, and Ford its status as the number-two automaker in the U.S. market. The 2007 show opened yesterday, and new cars on display at the Pennsylvania Convention Center through next Sunday will be the chips that decide which company is the king of the automotive world. The experts are betting on Toyota. "Ten years ago, that may have been unthinkable," Jesse Toprak, an analyst with Edmunds Inc., said of the idea of Toyota's surpassing Ford Motor Co. in the domestic market.

A NUMBER of big-time Hollywood types live on Broad Beach in Malibu. Tattle understands why. They're moments from the Pacific Coast Highway with a view of the Santa Monica Mountains in one direction and a mile-long stretch of California surf outside their doors. This ain't cheap real estate. Alan Latteri can't afford a home on Broad Beach but he figures he has as much right to the sand, surf and sun as any movie mogul, and he's taken his case to the California Coastal Commission.
