"What's on TV tonight?" "Not much. It's New Year's Eve."* "Picket Fences." (10-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- There are two sides to the "Fences" tonight -- or, at least, two episodes of "Picket Fences" on view. Beginning tonight, CBS is using the late-night slot to repeat some of "Picket Fences" creator David E. Kelley's favorite episodes. In prime time, there's a repeat from just a few weeks ago, the superb one about the potential of a "virgin birth" in Rome, Wis, Then, in late night, comes last year's holiday episode, one that takes on the still-current controversy about religious pageantry on public (as in school)

Her ambition is as clear as the jewel that glimmers from her pierced navel. Britney Spears doesn't want to be like Mike, as in Michael Jackson. She wants to be like Mike's sister, Janet. That much is clear as Spears, who turns 20 on Dec. 2 and released Britney, her third album, yesterday, enters the next phase of her brief, best-selling career. After all, now that she's almost not a teen-ager anymore, that Lolita baby-doll pose that has served her so well the last three years is going to need to grow up, and fast, if she wants to keep pace with an audience that inhales and spits out trendy pop singers faster than you can say "Paula Abdul."

Remember the days of "Thriller" when record executives would hyperventilate at the thought of signing Michael Jackson to a contract?No longer.If you throw out any votes he may have received from representatives of his Sony Music family, Mr. Jackson didn't get enough support to finish among the first 20 artists in a Los Angeles Times Sunday Calendar poll to determine the hottest recording properties in the United States.How bad was Mr. Jackson's showing?Consider this: Mr. Jackson even finished third among artists with the same surname -- far, far behind his sister Janet Jackson and country star Alan Jackson.

Wardrobe malfunctions, on-stage accidents, even digestive troubles. Slip-ups are a workplace hazard in pop music, and few stars are immune from stumbling in the spotlight. Ashlee Simpson, who's currently touring (and stopping at Washington's Constitution Hall next month), provides the most recent high-profile example. Unless your TV set's been on the fritz for six months, you know she was caught lip-synching on Saturday Night Live. She cited a bout of acid reflux. But Simpson's in good company.

Dani Knight wants everyone to know that dancing is not a racial thing, it's a rhythm thing.Ms. Knight, 24, and her partner and friend Jeffrey McDonald, 27, own Knight Moves: Studio of the Arts at 695 Hanover Pike in Hampstead. The studio offers what may seem like an unlikely combination of classes: hip-hop dancing, line dancing, aerobics and martial arts."Martial arts is nothing but a dance," said Mr. McDonald. "It's choreographed fitness."Hip-hop dancing is usually perceived as the dancing style of young African-Americans.

Only VIPs dare introduce Janet Janet Jackson threw a hissy fit at rehearsals the day before Thursday night's MTV Video Music Awards when she was told Renee Zellweger would be introducing her, reports the New York Post. Jackson, who had arrived at Radio City Music Hall three hours late, screamed, "Who is that? She's nobody! I'm Janet Jackson! I don't even like her boyfriend Jim Carrey - he's a fool!" Jackson threatened to be a no-show, forcing MTV execs to spend all night convincing her that Zellweger ("Jerry Maguire," "Nurse Betty")

It's a long, long way from the mean streets of South Central Los Angeles to a plush office in the Capra Building of Sony Studios. But when you enter the headquarters of John Singleton's New Deal Productions, it's quickly apparent that the 25-year-old Wunderkind writer-director hasn't forgotten his roots.While the hushed corridors outside are swarming with suits, inside Mr. Singleton is kicking back in a T-shirt and jeans as he pumps up the hip-hop soundtrack and watches a trailer for his eagerly anticipated new film, "Poetic Justice" (which opens July 23)
