They might be a little snooty, but it would be hard to find a family more welcome in these parts than the Crawleys of “Downton Abbey” - at least in Owings Mills, home of Maryland Public Television. Just as “American Idol” in its heyday used to attract tens of thousands of new viewers to Fox affiliates like WBFF in Baltimore, so has “Downton Abbey” come to be a ratings, promotional and fundraising bonanza for PBS affiliates like MPT. “The total audience for 'Downton Abbey' is nearly twice what our other leading programs deliver on an episode-by-episode basis,” says Steven Schupak, chief content officer.

By air, it takes nearly 24 hours to travel to the Philippines from Baltimore, but yesterday, with a quick drive to Towson, you could feel "almost there." Filipino dishes including pancit, dinuguan and lumpia shangia were being sold at vendors' booths, a bamboo dance called Tinikling was performed, and about four dozen children participated in Santacruzan, a commemoration of the finding of the Holy Cross. It was all part of the 14th annual Philippine-American Festival, which was held at Courthouse Plaza and featured events unmistakably Filipino including an Ati-Atihan parade, which resembles Mardi Gras, and Lolo at Lola, a dance performance by elders.

Before Halo sets one furry paw inside the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show's hallowed ring, the Samoyed will get the equivalent of a half-day spa treatment — pampering that most women would kill for on Valentine's Day weekend. First, his owner, Lisl Dutterer from Perry Hall, will scrub his dense, silky coat with a brightening shampoo to bring out its whiteness. Then she'll blow-dry and fluff the pup for not one, not two, not even three — but four full hours. She'll brush his teeth, trim his nails, clip the fur that grows thick around his feet and keep up the primping until it's showtime Tuesday afternoon.

$59.99 for Microsoft Xbox 360. Rated Teen *** (3 STARS) Halo was originally planned as a real-time strategy game, but series creator Bungie didn't make Halo Wars, the first nonshooter in the series. Instead, it was developed by strategy veterans Ensemble Studios, the company behind Microsoft's Age of Empires and Age of Mythologies games. Ensemble was shut down by Microsoft after Halo Wars was completed. The studio's end is disappointing, especially given the quality on display here. Halo Wars - to be released today - takes place 20 years before the discovery of a Halo installation in the first game.
