TV: Sassy magazine editor Jane Pratt, 29, is having trouble attracting a broad range of viewers to Jane, her new daily TV talk show aimed at 18- to 34-year- olds. Fox has been testing Jane in New York’s competitive 5 p.m. market since March 16, but some controversial subjects, such as ”Young Satan Worshippers,” alienated older viewers, while other shows, like ”Women and AIDS,” turned off teens. No decision yet on whether Fox will go ahead with its plan to take the show national after the 13-week test…

Music: Pamela Springsteen, sister to Bruce and photographer to the stars, has a funny dilemma on her hands: Her photos grace Def Leppard‘s latest release, Adrenalize, which, in its current No. 1 spot on the charts, beats out the Boss’ two records, Human Touch and Lucky Town (Nos. 2 and 4 respectively). No word from Bruce on whether he’s on fire about that…

Books: Due from Random House in September, Gore Vidal‘s new comic novel, Live From Golgotha, pits an overweight Jesus against 20th-century Southern California. The book won’t have a dust jacket and instead will be wrapped in imitation red leather, with the title stamped in gold. Sound a bit like another book you know?…

Movies: Arnold Schwarzenegger and brother-in-law Bobby Shriver recently did the power breakfast thing at Arnold’s new eatery, Schatzi on Main in Santa Monica. But when the bill came, the big guy held up a $100 traveler’s check and announced to the room, ”This is from [Bobby’s] mother, Eunice Shriver!” Now that he’s a director, is Arnold watching the bottom line?… * What’s up with Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis? At L.A.’s City restaurant, the Fly-guy wasn’t sure where he stood with his Amazonian ex-wife — not to mention where he should sit. Before a friendly dinner á deux, Goldblum hovered over the table, first sitting across from Geena, then getting up and sitting next to her… * The Player‘s Tim Robbins is expected to beat out Billy Baldwin and others to star with Robert Redford and Demi Moore in Indecent Proposal, the already controversial new drama from director Adrian Lyne (Fatal Attraction). Proposal follows a young married couple (Robbins and Moore) to Las Vegas, where they accept a gambler’s (Redford) offer of $1 million if the wife will sleep with him for one night. Speaking of money, Redford reportedly will get $4 million for the role, some $3 mil less than he got for 1990’s Havana.
