So far, we've seen some really bad new sitcoms on the networks this fall.

But on Saturday (8 p.m., Ch. 5), the best new comedy of the season debuts- "The Five Mrs. Buchanans."

Very much in the tradition of "Designing Women" and "The Golden Girls," this saucy, sassy half hour revolves around the lives of four very different sisters-in-law drawn together by a mutual enemy.

The mother-in-law from hell.

Eileen Heckart is great as that mother-in-law, and so is the rest of the cast - Judith Ivey, Harriet Sansom Harris, Beht Broderick and Charlotte Ross.

This is a half hour loaded with laughs, and what more can you ask from a TV comedy?
