The frontrunner in the race to snatch the rights to the synidcated version of NBC's "The Cosby Show didn't win. Channel 3 - where the show is now seen Thursday nights at 8 p.m. - was considered by local television critics to be the odds-on favorite to capture the series. Instead, the station was outdistanced by Channel 10's winning bid of $22.6 million for a 3 1/2 year contract, or $124,000 for each weekly episode. Channel 3 says it would've liked to have won the program, but getting it was not a "life-or-death" situation.

The evidence for the defense included contracts signed by go-go girls who, among other things, promised to "pose in an artful and decent manner" and to pay their own city wage taxes. Among the defense witnesses were former Revenue Commissioner Eugene L. Cliett Jr., who told how his department tried to collect unpaid witholding taxes from Brighton Enterprises, owner of Center City's Apollo Theater. Brighton Enterprises considered its go-go girls "independent contractors," Cliett said.

Marilyn McCoo, former member of the singing group the Fifth Dimension and current host of "Solid Gold" (Saturdays, 4 p.m. on Channel 29), performs this weekend at the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City. In a recent telephone interview from her Los Angeles home, McCoo - who also appears in a recurring role as Tamara Price on the popular NBC soap "Days of Our Lives" - discussed the possibility of making more television appearances (she's been a guest on "The Fall Guy" and in 1977 co- hosted her own program with husband Billy Davis Jr.)

Tom Wopat was drawing concerned glances. It wasn't concern over his long- gone series, "The Dukes of Hazzard," necessarily. He seemed to be getting along just fine without a souped-up car. But why, we wondered, was he wearing one two-toned shoe and one brown one? Before anybody got the nerve to ask, Wopat was on the stage of the Philadelphia Civic Center's convention hall, hobbling on what appeared to be a wooden stump. The two-toned shoe was gone - or propped up, anyway, behind his leg. "Looks hard to move around in," he was told.

When it comes to fashion statements, rock star Bruce Springsteen has as much clout as President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev, say members of the men's garment industry who have declared the trio among the best dressed men of 1986. The list of honorees, chosen from 10 fields, also includes Prince Andrew, whose "flair and informality (are) followed by the yuppie social set", New York Gov. Mario Cuomo and television celebrity Ed McMahon. Tailors and designers participating in the 45th annual survey by the Fashion Foundation of America in Brooklyn, N.Y., said the best dressed statesman in 1986 was Reagan and the finest clad in the field of international affairs was Gorbachev.

Jordan's King Hussein on Friday won Spain's Prince of Asturias Concord prize, considered the Spanish-speaking world's equivalent of the Nobel Prize. Hussein was cited for his "valiant contribution to the cause of peace in the Middle East. " The prize jury lauded his diplomatic efforts following Iraq's 1990 invasion of Kuwait and noted his decision to grant asylum to members of Iraqi ruler Saddam Hussein's family. The king was nominated for the award by last year's winner of the Prince of Asturias international cooperation prize, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

Forget New Year's. Now is the time to consider future entertainment possibilities in the casino/hotel showrooms of Atlantic City. Those who have been keeping tabs on the Atlantic City scene for the last several months will discover that, from early indications, things aren't going to be much different during the winter and spring of 1994. What was good enough for everyone in the fall and early winter of 1993, will have to do just fine in the coming months. This status quo will offer a new production show here and there and the usual mix of big-name performers and borderline star types.

It's hard to believe, but they began performing together 38 years ago. Even harder to believe, they have remained together without a change of personnel ever since. They are the Four Tops, one of the great vocal groups to emerge during the Motown era. For Abdul "Duke" Fakir, Levi Stubbs, Renaldo "Obie" Benson and Lawrence Payton, the relationship began when they were teenagers in their native Detroit, where they continue to reside. In the mid '50s, they formed a singing group called the Aims, projecting a style that was a mix of rhythm and blues and jazz.

To mark the start of it all, one must go back to 1967. That's when the 5th Dimension exploded on the pop music scene with a monster record titled "Up, Up and Away. " From there, the 5th Dimension continued to crank out the big hits well into the '70s. That was then and this is now. The vocal group hasn't recorded in 10 years. A large percentage of those buying records today had not yet been born when "Up, Up and Away" zoomed to the top of the best-selling charts. However, the 5th Dimension has endured for the last 23 years.

It's going to come together. It always does. But standing in the middle of Convention Hall at the Civic Center less than 48 hours before air time, it's impossible not to wonder how CBS's two-hour We the People 200: The Constitutional Gala will ever emerge from the chaos. Producer Gary Smith, the diminutive organizational genius behind this and other TV blowouts, is dashing around the hall in a tennis sweater, chomping his ever-present cigar, ordering that this go here and that go there.
