A child's medical device left near the AMC movie theater in White Marsh Saturday triggered a brief evacuation of the cinema, Baltimore County police said. Police spokesman Lt. Robert McCullough said police received a call around 3:30 p.m. for a report of a suspicious package.

The Emmys have not always been in sync with what's happening on screen and in viewers' hearts. But yesterday's 59th annual Primetime Emmy Award nominations got one thing right: As network television sinks deeper into a dismal sea of reality TV with series like this summer's new No. 1 show, NBC's The Singing Bee, increasingly cable becomes the place for quality programming. For the eighth straight year, HBO led all networks - this time with 86 nominations. The premium cable channel had both the most-nominated program, the made-for-TV movie Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, and the top series, The Sopranos.

For AMC's Mad Men, the network's wry summer drama about life, love and identity at a mid-century-era Madison Avenue advertising agency, the actors appear smooth-shaven and dress in skinny neckties and cordovan shoes. Their characters drink early and often. The actresses, trussed in tight dresses, wear pointy "bullet bras" and painful screw-on earrings. Their characters care less about careers than making a good catch and moving to Connecticut. On TV Mad Men premieres at 10 tonight on AMC.

AMC believes viewers should have a second, third and fourth chance. That means less variety, but cuts back on the missed opportunities.You also missed "Here Comes Mr. Jordan" on Turner Classic Movies? Now that could be a problem; it won't be on again in July, and may not air again for months.
