Actress Farrah Fawcett, who was launched into instant pop culture stardom in 1976 with a best-selling wall poster and a featured role in the ABC series Charlie's Angels, is dead at 62. She was a TV presence in our lives right to the end. Fawcett, who battled cancer for several years, was seen last month in an NBC documentary that she produced herself and helped tape with a digital camera. The film, Farrah's Story, which chronicled her struggle with the disease, was a ratings success for the network, and she vowed to continue with a second TV documentary.

Whether you're on the road and bound for a Thanksgiving destination, preparing food for tomorrow or just sitting around, don't feel any guilt about ignoring TV. For its part, TV will be ignoring quality tonight.* "Beverly Hills, 90210" (8-9 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Now that this show's spinoff series, "Melrose Place," has demonstrated just how much mileage can be gotten from showcasing a bad girl or two, "Beverly Hills, 90210" is quick to follow suit. (Actually, it was a little quicker, but most of Shannen Doherty's antics took place off-screen, so they don't really count.

Action figures with figures: You can fit the appeal of the Charlie's Angels series in a cracked nutshell. But Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle is so hyperactive, disjointed and downright foolish, you can't even appreciate the pulchritude. The director of this choppy cheesecake franchise goes by the name McG. He's the most aptly named moviemaker since Tinto Brass, who directed Caligula. Based on the success of the first Charlie's Angels movie, and in anticipation of the blockbuster opening of this one, magazines have filled their pages with cutesy-poo group interviews featuring producer-star Drew Barrymore (Dylan)

NEW YORK - Her father lies seriously ill in a hospital, but she refuses to see him. Her rock-star boyfriend waits for her to finish a long day of interviews. Her new movie, Duplex, opened Friday. If her life were not complicated, it would not be Drew Barrymore's life. The child star turned teen alcoholic turned comeback kid turned Hollywood power babe is trying to slow down. Really. "I still think I'm slightly impulsive," she says in a conversation at the Essex House. "I think we can all relate to that feeling of, `I want it and I want it now.' I'm trying just to be calmer and more mature and learn the lessons I do."

LOS ANGELES -- One is a double agent for the CIA. Another is a professional thief forced to work for the police after being arrested during a failed heist. Another yet is an undercover agent who loves the feel of an automatic weapon firing red-hot in her hands. They are the new, kung-fu kicking, young women of prime time, coming to a television screen near you this fall. Taken together with Max (Jessica Alba), of Fox's Dark Angel, and Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), of UPN's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, network television is going to be populated by young, leather-clad, female action adventure heroes like never before.

Hot on the heels of Starsky & Hutch, which arrived in theaters Friday, comes Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of "Charlie's Angels" on NBC tonight. Who could have guessed that pop culture in the new millennium would showcase recycled lame ABC television series from the 1970s? Postmodernism sometimes works in strange and depressing ways. Though some critics describe Starsky & Hutch as a campy romp, NBC's behind-the-scenes story of Charlie's Angels is not illuminating, amusing or ironic.

Come see Drew Barrymore lick a steering wheel while flaunting her death-drop cleavage in an unzipped-to-the-waist race-car jumpsuit! Check out Lucy Liu popping out of a leather bustier that apparently is appropriate attire for both baking muffins and kicking butt! Watch Cameron Diaz in a baby-T and Spiderman undies breathlessly bound to the door to sign for a UPS package! Need we say more to tout "Charlie's Angels"? For those of you who don't just require unabashed titillation to enjoy a movie, rest assured, there's more that makes this one worth seeing.

Sure, "Charlie's Angels" is about butt-kicking, sassy sleuthing and all that girl-power yadda yadda. But let's face it, what makes this new movie work isn't Drew Barrymore's Oscar-unworthy performance or Lucy Liu's "Matrix"-like kick moves. Superficial as it seems, it's the clothes. And for proof, you don't have to look much further than Cameron Diaz's plunging neckline as she wades out of the ocean in a sleeveless black wetsuit unzipped to the navel. The 1970s "Charlie's Angels" television show about the Townsend Detective Agency and its three comely private investigators may have created fashion icons of Farrah, Jaclyn and Kate.

LOS ANGELES -- For Oscar's bleacher bums, those die-hard fans who sit in the stands and loudly pine over the Hollywood royalty as they arrive, the fight for the best seats is as big a part of the ritual as the awards themselves.Which is why so many were ticked off Saturday night when they were told there would be no overnight camping on the streets outside the Shrine Auditorium."It's retarded," said Mary Ann Kellogg, sitting poolside at the nearby Vagabond Inn.Jill Cornelli, her friend and fellow stargazer, agreed.
