But first, another entry for our The Age of Innocence It Ain't But Then You've Probably Guessed That Already file:

CBS announced yesterday that a drama about teen-age AIDS and the two-hour "Miss Teen USA" Pageant will be paired the night of Tuesday, July 21 ...

The one-hour "An Enemy Among Us," which will air at 8 that evening, was originally planned to be an entry in the "CBS Schoolbreak Special" series ...

Starring Dee Wallace Stone and Danny Nucci, it tells the story of a 16-year-old whose family learns that a blood transfusion following an accident three years before has infected him with AIDS. The family is subsequently stunned by the reaction of friends -- especially his girlfriend and her parents -- when the infection becomes common knowledge ...

B. Donald Grant, president of CBS Entertainment, explained that "with the scheduling of the 'Miss Teen USA' pageant that evening, we saw an opportunity to reach a much larger audience on a night with special appeal to young people and their families ...

"The program is of exceptional quality, telling a vitally important story with great taste, feeling and sensitivity about a major world problem" ...

The fifth annual "Miss Teen USA" pageant will be broadcast at 9 p.m. live from El Paso with Michael Young and Stepfanie Kramer as hosts. The Dallas CowboyCheerleaders and the El Paso Youth Symphony Orchestra will be "special guests" ...

Early returns on Maury Povich's "A Current Affair" news show, which debuted last week on Channel 5, show some promise ...

The program out of WNYW in New York and now seen on all seven Fox Broadcasting stations earned a 5.7 Nielsen rating and a 13 percent audience share at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, followed by a strong 8.1/19 in that same timeslot Friday (finishing second in the market only to WUSA's "Wheel of Fortune" that night) ...

Monday, in its noon debut as a replacement for "Panorama," the rerun of the Friday broadcast did a 4.7/14, doubling the old "Panorama" numbers ...

That night, debuting in its regular midnight slot, "A Current Affair" did a 5.1/19 at midnight (bettering the local performance of ABC "Nightline's" tribute to Fred Astaire on Channel 7 a half hour earlier) ...

Tuesday, the program came back to earth. The noon rerun did a 3.0/10, while the midnight show did a 3.0/11 (each rating point represents 15,800 TV homes in the Washington area) ...

In Other News

John Huddy, a former executive producer of CBS News' "Nightwatch" and his wife, Erica, have sued a former "Nightwatch" producer for $4 million, charging slander, libel, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and tortious interference with contract, and for "tortious interference with prospective business advantage" ...

Pamela Browne, currently a producer for WNEV, the CBS affiliate in Boston, was named as defendant in the suit, filed Tuesday in Superior Court for the District of Columbia...

Browne was released by CBS News in September of last year as part of a cutback of the late-night news series staff ...

A year ago this month, Huddy had become the target of allegations of harassment by "Nightwatch" employes at the CBS News Washington bureau. In the suit, Huddy claims that as a result of the allegations CBS, citing Browne's charges "as the key reasons for so doing," offered him the choice of resigning or being fired, at which time he resigned ...

Huddy alleges that in June, without his knowledge, "a secret meeting was held at the Westin Hotel" here ... "attended by a number of current and former women staffers of 'Nightwatch' on the one hand, and the deputy bureau chief of CBS Washington Bureau on the other hand" ...

The suit claims Browne, then in Los Angeles, participated in the meeting in a conference call. "Of the then current 'Nightwatch' employes who participated in the meeting, Ms. Browne and several others were scheduled to be fired," and at the time of the call, the suit alleges, Browne "knew that she had been scheduled to be fired" ...

The suit claims that during the call Browne made "derogatory and false accusations against Mr. Huddy to the room full of people." He characterized the accusations as "inflammatory and sexually explicit" ...

Huddy's suit says "these shocking, revolting, and disgusting accusations {against him} were made by means of speaker phone to each of the many people in the meeting room" ...

"After this meeting CBS asked Ms. Browne to reduce her accusations to writing and she did so." In the suit, Huddy said "he vehemently denied ever having made the revolting statements attributed to him, and offered to take a polygraph examination to support that denial. CBS refused his offer" ...

Huddy and his family subsequently moved to California. His attorney, Joe Reeder, said yesterday Huddy is currently working in television on the West Coast ...

In seeking $2 million in compensatory damages and another $2 million in punitive damages, Huddy claims he "has become unemployable with large portions of the television industry, suffered other substantial and foreseeable financial losses and untold mental distress" ...

Huddy said his $150,000 annual salary was to have been raised $10,000 in the summer of 1986 ...

The suit also charges that because of the CBS action, Mrs. Huddy was unable to continue work as a Virginia realtor and consequently also suffered "significant financial losses" as well as mental distress and "physical manifestations" of that distress ...

Browne, reached in Boston yesterday, said she had not seen the suit and had "no comment" on the allegations ...

Browne said that starting next week she is returning to CBS as an executive producer at WCAU, the network-owned station in Philadelphia ...

Meanwhile, a $14 million suit filed against CBS Inc. by six former employes of "Nightwatch" and one current CBS News employe is still pending in D.C. Superior Court ...

Filed last September, that suit charges violations of the D.C. Human Rights Act, intentional infliction of emotional distress and sexual assault and that CBS, "through its agents and servants, created and maintained a working environment in its 'Nightwatch' program that was offensive and hostile to women employes, including the plaintiffs" ...

Pamela Browne is not a plaintiff in that suit against CBS, Inc. Nor is Huddy a defendant ...

Moving Right Along

Channel 7's reporter Roberta Baskin and producer Kathleen Pearce were two of the three overall winners announced yesterday by the National Press Foundation in its consumer journalism awards competition ...

More than 100 entries were submitted for judging in this year's contest, results of which were announced at the National Press Club ...

Baskin and Pearce won for their WJLA series "Radon, Natural Disaster." Judges noted that "Ms. Baskin and Ms. Pearce set out to find out whether radon -- a highly radioactive gas -- was a problem in the Washington metropolitan area ... Without this series, many more people in the Washington area might die from lung cancer" ...

Charles R.T. Crumpley of the Kansas City Times was also honored for a report on how bank failures affect consumers ...

Ron Tindiglia, most recently executive producer of the canceled "Today's Business" series, has been brought aboard at CBS' "The Morning Program" as a consultant to work with producer Bob Shanks ...
