I am not a media critic!" said TV commentator Chris Matthews when I asked if he had any thoughts on the Bill O'Reilly-Keith Olbermann "feud," which rages almost nightly on the Fox and MSNBC networks. Chris added: "You can never win criticizing someone in your own business." Although Chris works for MSNBC, he has high praise in person and in his new book for Fox tycoon Roger Ailes, who did so much for MSNBC before he went to the Rupert Murdoch empire. In fact, when we discussed ABC's late genius, Roone Arledge, Chris said that Roger is the only person in television who comes up to Roone, creatively.

Football Night in America 7 p.m. [chs. 11, 4] Not only can you can catch up on the day's NFL highlights before NBC's Sunday night game, but you also can watch Keith Olbermann (right) not be snippy with Chris Matthews. That is, unless some network suit has decided Matthews should replace Dan Patrick.

Don't read this column yet. First, I want you to do something. Google "Chris Matthews + Kevin James." This will bring up video of the latter, a conservative Los Angeles radio pundit, being questioned by the former on MSNBC's Hardball. You "must" see this video. For the Internet deprived, here's a recap: Mr. James goes on Hardball to comment on a speech President Bush gave before the Israeli Knesset in which he accused unnamed politicians - read: Sen. Barack Obama - of a policy of appeasement toward terrorists.

Forget the broadcast networks of ABC, NBC and CBS. And forget PBS, too, unless you are part of the minority that doesn't have cable or online access. Public television simply doesn't have the resources any longer to do any kind of original, first-rate coverage of hardly anything -- even a pre-planned event like a national convention. If you want to use TV to get the best information and to engage as fully as possible with the Republican convention that begins Monday in Tampa and the Democratic convention next month in Charlotte, go with cable.

Gov. Martin O'Malley took his call for a ban on assault weapons to national television Wednesday night, arguing on MSNBC's Hard Ball that "these combat weapons have no place in a civilized society. " O'Malley this week said his administration is crafting a package of state gun-control legislation likely to be introduced during the General Assembly session that begins next month. Wednesday night, O'Malley told MSNBC's Chris Matthews that political sentiment has shifted. "I think we've all been changed as a country," O'Malley said in a segment that included former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell, who also encouraged stricter gun laws in the wake of the Connecticut shooting that killed 27 people, 20 of them elementary school children.

This year, I gave up reporting cable news ratings every month. The numbers and spin tell us about the horse race to some extent. But what they mainly do is distract us from the important moral and cultural stories of the way these channels are warping our view of the world with their ideological and show biz priorities rather than any genuine commitment to news and information. But there are ratings, and then, there are ratings. And the October numbers that just came out offer a sobering snapshot of just how badly CNN's misadventures in programming are going -- even as they cheapen their news brand identity to try and find larger audiences.

The ratings success of the venerable CBS newsmagazine 60 Minutes in recent weeks brings to mind another storied TV franchise, Nova, the science series now in its 35th season on PBS and still going strong. To see how strong, spend a couple of hours tonight with The Bible's Buried Secrets, a compelling documentary that combines literary criticism, archaeological discovery, scientific testing and historiography to get at the origins of the Hebrew Bible and the roots of religion as we know it today.
