'Cafe' Closes: "Bagdad Cafe," the CBS comedy starring Whoopi Goldberg and Jean Stapleton, has gone out of production, CBS confirmed Monday. Sources close to the show say production shut down after a dispute between Goldberg and the show's co-executive producer, Thad Mumford, during a Nov. 16 taping. A CBS spokeswoman said the network had not yet determined a date the show would go off the air. Goldberg's representatives had no immediate comment on the matter.
