Clearly one of the most successful authors in the 20th century, Danielle Steel writes books that are seldom if ever read by people who write literary reviews. What is she all about? Just out: "The House on Hope Street" (Delacorte, 231 pages, $19.95). The first paragraph, exactly 90 words, establishes three characters, location, the season, state of weather, an emotional tension, a story dynamic, and three relatively clear but vital personal relationships. Swiftly, a substantial suspense is at work.

After more than two years dominating The New York Times best-seller list, The Da Vinci Code, by Dan Brown, is dropping off the list, at least temporarily. In the week ended Oct. 29, The Da Vinci Code ranked 16th in the statistically weighted survey of almost 4,000 bookstores and wholesalers serving 50,000 other retailers. Therefore, it will be missing from the list of the top 15 best-selling books, to be published in the Nov. 13 edition of The Times Book Review. On the list to be published today, The Da Vinci Code ranks No. 12, in its 136th consecutive week on the list.

"Danielle's Steel's Fine Things" is certainly better than last night's "Danielle Steel's Kaleidoscope." But is it better than the World Series?That probably depends on what viewers are looking for in the way of television tonight."Fine Things," which airs at 8 tonight on WMAR-TV (Channel 2), is NBC's attempt to counterprogram the World Series on CBS, which begins at 8 tonight on WBAL-TV (Channel 11). The very old-timey thinking at NBC is that women don't want to watch baseball and will turn to Danielle Steel in droves.

After more than a year of talking about plans to use Danielle Steel to lure women viewers away from CBS' telecast of the World Series, NBC abruptly changed plans. The network instead will run "Danielle Steel's 'Kaleidoscope' " at 9 tonight on WMAR-TV (Channel 2), even though the World Series does not start until tomorrow.NBC last week declined to explain why it backed out of its much-trumpeted showdown with baseball. Network publicists said they did not know why the change was made, but promised to get a programming executive to explain.

Cheryl Ladd outdoes herself in "Danielle Steel's Changes," tonight at 9 on WMAR-TV (Channel 2).That means you may love or hate the movie, depending upon how you feel about Ladd as an actress.Personally, I think calling her performance one-note is too kind by about three-fourths of a note.But aesthetics is not what "Changes" and much of prime-time television is about tonight -- one the nuttiest nights of the year.It's about counterprogramming -- and, boy, are NBC, CBS and ABC counterpunching each other tonight.

There's a fascinating documentary on MPT and a wonderful Western comedy on The Family Channel. Take your pick and settle in for a fine evening of TV."Hope & Gloria" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- In the series' final first-run episode, Cindy Williams (the latter half of "Laverne and Shirley") guest stars as a former teen star, now fallen on hard times, who was once Hope and Gloria's idol. She's brought back as co-host of "The Dennis Dupree Show," much to the consternation of Dupree (Alan Thicke)

What? It's New Year's Day, and you say you're not going to watch football? What sort of American are you? C'mon, let's see some citizenship papers. OK, if you insist on continuing with this madness, there are a few things on TV today that don't take place within the confines of a 300-foot-long field. But not many.* "Tournament of Roses Parade" (11 a.m.-12:30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11; 11 a.m.-1 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2; 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- If you want to watch anything other than this parade this afternoon, good luck.

TV provides a late gift on this day after Christmas. On cable, Comedy Central provides a repeat of one of the most biting, brilliant and accurate parody films of all time: "The Rutles," a dead-on spoof of the music and relationships of the Beatles.* "The Nanny" (8-8:30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Like every other non-sports offering on broadcast network TV tonight, this is a repeat -- but it's a funny one, with Richard Kind of "Mad About You" as a geek from Fran's past. In fact, Kind and Fran Drescher would be perfect, if perhaps fatally irritating, casting for a movie version of the "Doug and Wendy Whiner" characters from "Saturday Night Live."

On cable, the movie that made Arnold Schwarzenegger's career competes directly with one that almost derailed it. On broadcast TV, Fox breaks the rerun monotony with season premieres of two of its reality shows.* "NFL Football" (noon-3:30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- It seems almost unnatural to think about football in July, but today's the day that the San Diego Chargers and Atlanta Falcons suit up in the annual Hall of Fame exhibition game.

The first fragments of the Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet will collide with Jupiter today. Looking at the sky with the naked eye, you won't be able to see much of anything -- which is pretty much what will happen tonight if you look at TV with the naked eye, too. There is, however, an exception or two.* "Danielle Steel's 'Fine Things' " (8 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- If Danielle Steel has produced any, they aren't literary, and this "Thing" is a 1990 made-for-TV movie bore. NBC repeat.* "Baseball Night in America."
