When was the last time you could count on a news program to be far and away the most entertaining and engaging program on TV? That's the case tonight with Barack Obama accepting the Democratic nomination for president in a speech from Invesco Field at Mile High in Denver. My recommendation is again to go with CNN if you have cable, and PBS if you don't. CNN will have more thorough reporting and commentary starting at 6 p.m. But PBS will have Jim Lehrer, the dean of TV anchors, to lend perspective starting at 8 p.m. There are other options.

SMILES AND good wishes accompanied the election Saturday of Julian Bond as NAACP board chairman. But by making one of his first acts the reinstatement of a tainted executive committee member, Mr. Bond may have set back an organization still trying to restore public confidence.Many were surprised when Mr. Bond nonchalantly included James E. Ghee on his list of executive committee members. Mr. Ghee, a Farmville, Va., lawyer, was one of four board members with ethics problems asked to resign last year by the departing board chairwoman, Myrlie Evers-Williams.

Tonight's NAACP Image Awards (8 p.m. on Fox) marks the revival of a television program -- and perhaps of a civil rights group.The show will be President Kweisi Mfume's first appearance on the national stage since leaving Congress in February to head the troubled National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, based in Baltimore.Mr. Mfume surrounds himself with considerable star power, including co-hosts Whitney Houston and Denzel Washington, as if to reinforce the notion that the NAACP is regaining its historic role as black America's most powerful voice.

NO ONE ANSWERS the telephone at Washington, D.C., radio station WARW these days. It just rings and rings, for about 30 to 40 times, and then a busy signal kicks in. Folks at WARW must not be in a talking mood.Until the end of February, Doug Tracht worked at WARW. He was a shock jock known as "Greaseman." The day after the Grammy Awards show, Greaseman played a sound bite of one of hip-hop artist Lauryn Hill's songs. At the end of the bite, Greaseman said, "No wonder people drag them behind trucks."

WASHINGTON -- The NAACP is poised to select a new leader who members hope will lead an aggressive attack on modern civil rights issues that have become infinitely more complicated than the crude challenges of segregation.One measure of the expectations for change in the venerable organization is the fact that Jesse Jackson -- twice candidate for president and nimble manipulator of the media -- is among those being considered for the top job.An NAACP selection board is conducting interviews for the position this weekend in Atlanta.
