Last season became TV’s Year of the Single Woman, alternately bellicose and lachrymose. This four-hour show (the conclusion airs Friday) rather leadenly proves that, hey, guys have feelings too. After their marriages all fail, six men—Robert Conrad, Billy Crystal, Ted Bessell, Jeff Conaway, Tony Musante and David Ogden Stiers—turn a Malibu beachhouse into a communal Heartbreak Hotel, each reacting to the trauma of divorce in a different way. The concept is promising (the movie is based on an actual incident), but the delivery is far too predictable.
