Ken Tucker plays TV programmer

What shows are on the wrong network and would benefit from a ''JAG''-like switch to a different home? -- Chris

My man, you've tapped into my favorite game, If I Were a TV Programmer! Okay, two examples: I think that if ''Alias'' were on The WB, it might not attract as many viewers, but it'd be reaching its core audience and be a more zeitgeist-y show than it is on dowdy ABC. By contrast, I think if you moved the ethereal ''Everwood'' from The WB to CBS, which nurtures thoughtful family shows like ''Joan of Arcadia,'' this first-rate family saga would become a mass phenomenon.
