Time magazine recently featured Wal-Mart, in honor of th upstart surpassing venerable Sears in retail sales ($33 billion vs. $32.6 billion in 1990). I was struck by two sets of physical descriptions: Sears' "spacious, peach-carpeted 68th-floor boardroom" and 110-story tower, "a monument to the company's glorious [past]" -- and Wal-Mart's "drab, two-story building [with] Formica desks and battleship-gray walls" and founder Sam Walton's "Spartan little office."Sears failed in its recent attempt to mimic Wal-Mart's "everyday low prices" strategy.

With word coming out of Hollywood last week that "Friday Night Lights" actress Adrianne Palicki has been cast to play Wonder Woman in a coming TV series, fans of the Amazing Amazon have only one question: "Will she really be able to compare with Lynda Carter?" For three seasons, from 1975-1979, Carter played the DC Comics heroine, earning legions of fans both female (who appreciated her guts) and male (who appreciated her beauty — Carter had, after all, won the Miss World USA pageant and been a semifinalist for the 1972 Miss World title)

For years, David E. Kelley had lived with the fear. The lawyer-turned-writer/producer, known for his evocative fictional legal eagles and his prolific way with words, sensed it was only a matter of time before the booming reality genre he so despised crossed into the television world he had created. "When reality television was proliferating, I was a great champion of the idea - I so loved it - that I thought, `Oh, my God, what's gonna happen next?'" the creator of Ally McBeal, The Practice and Boston Legal, said facetiously.

Los Angeles -- The Fox TV network, which came under a barrage of criticism last fall when it announced plans to air a docudrama on the O. J. Simpson case, said yesterday that it will show the film now that a jury has been chosen.Fox was the only network to rush into a docudrama following the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman last summer. But it reluctantly pulled the film from its fall line-up in the face of criticism that airing the movie might make it harder to find an impartial jury.

LOS ANGELES -- It was one of the hottest Fox Television parties in years. Calista Flockhart and Gillian Anderson in the same room. How could it get any better? Then in walked David E. Kelley with his wife, actress Michelle Pfeiffer. There was a feeding frenzy of television critics instantly surrounding the couple. But all the questions were going to Pfeiffer. After a few minutes, Kelley slipped away, almost unnoticed. "Happens all the time," he said matter-of-factly as he surveyed the scene of two dozen reporters sticking microphones and tape recorders in his wife's face and hanging on her every word.

"Boston Public" is David E. Kelley trying to do for public education what Steven Bochco did in 1981 to urban law enforcement with "Hill Street Blues": show a system so hopelessly out of control it's on the verge of chaos, save for a few brave souls trying to hold back the night. Kelley does not do it nearly as well. But there are moments of such visceral intensity in tonight's premiere that you can't help but think "Boston Public" might yet be something special if Kelley can reign in the hyperbole and excess that keep us from totally believing in the world of Winslow High.

David E. Kelley came into last night's 51st annual Emmy Awards with a record number of nominations for his shows and went home with the awards for the best drama and comedy on television.The producer's courtroom drama "The Practice" won as Outstanding Drama Series, while his offbeat legal series, "Ally McBeal," won as Outstanding Comedy."I think you can see from the look on our faces we're a little surprised, but we'll take it," Kelley said in receiving the awards, which came one after another at the very end of the telecast.

Our TV creator, David E. Kelley, who produces and writes all daily network programming (except Saturday's), now gives us another creation in the skinny form of "Ally" -- a half-hour version of his hourlong dramedy "Ally McBeal."The stripped-down versions of previously aired "McBeal" episodes even have a catchy show business name: "repurposed materials," as Fox calls them. David E. Kelley -- whose repurposed name could be just "Kelley" -- can't help but find more creative ways to enhance our television pleasure.
