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.

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.
