    "Check It Out!" is routine sitcom all the way, a basically viable idea which gets pedestrian treatment down the line.
    Don Adams stars as the manager of what seems like a nondescript supermarket, with Dinah Christie, Jeff Pustil, Kathleen Laskey, Aaron Schwartz and Tonya Williams as his none-too-efficient staff.
   The opening show revolves around a loss of parking space for the help, with assistant manager Pustil volunteering to drive his fellow workers to the job...for a fee. The scheme backfires, and Adams outwits Pustil, but doesn't do so with an abundance of laughs, and it is hard to care one way or the other.
    The series has been running in Canada and on USA Network and must be providing some sort of appeal to keep it alive on those venues
