“Are you sleeping your way through the entire family? Because if so, I’d like to make my reservation now.” So black-sheep son Peter Williams (John Barrowman) tactfully inquires of his seductive new stepmother, Heather (former Baywatch babe Yasmine Bleeth), who has already bedded Peter’s brother Chandler (Starship Trooper Casper Van Dien) and gotten pregnant by him before marrying the boys unsuspecting tycoon dad, Richard (Perry King). Peter’s crack gets him a slap in the face, which is what this anemic new soap from Aaron Spelling sorely needs. Parading Bleeth around in a gold bikini swimsuit, though it quickened my pulse, isn’t enough to resuscitate the show’s low ratings. And replacing King with Melrose Place regular Jack Wagner as Richard’s scheming brother (starting Nov. 8) sounds like an SOS call.

Bottom Line: Titanic flop
