King of Queens 7 p.m. [Ch. 45] Doug (Kevin James) wins two tickets to the Final Four, but his wife (Leah Remini) makes him take Arthur (Jerry Stiller) instead of his best pal. Hilarity ensues when Arthur meets up with Bob Knight, Digger Phelps and Dick Vitale and regales them with his college basketball expertise. I never saw this episode, so that last part probably doesn't happen.

Friday the 13th * (1 STAR) $40.6 million $40.6 million 1 week Rated: R Running time: 97 minutes What it's about: The hockey-mask-clad killer terrorizes a fresh batch of randy teens (including Jared Padalecki) in this remake of the classic horror film. Our take: Not fun, more loud than scary, not even all that gory, this new Friday the 13th has Jason all right, but otherwise misses nearly everything that made the original films work. He's Just Not That Into You ** 1/2 ( 2 1/2 STARS)

Will Smith finally got a chance to strut his romantic-comedy stuff this year in Hitch (Sony, $29). Smith plays a New York date doctor who guarantees men they can win the girl of their dreams in just three dates. More than holding his own opposite Smith is stand-up comic Kevin James (The King of Queens), who plays a shy accountant madly in love with a society heiress (Amber Valletta). Eva Mendes plays a tabloid columnist who ends up falling for Hitch. Conspicuously absent is audio commentary from director Andy Tennant, Smith and James -- it would have greatly improved the digital edition.

As film formulas go, Adam Sandler's is proving especially hard to swallow. For the first half of the movie, be offensive. Be juvenile. Be crass. But then get all right-minded and realize how hurtful your behavior has been, and suddenly become something of a secular saint. This allows for everybody to become all happy and gushy and righteous in the end, with all previous offenses against humanity (not to mention taste) forgiven. I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (Universal Pictures) Starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Jessica Biel.

Despite new rules aimed at making the Emmy Awards more inclusive and less predictable, this year's nominations, for the most part, represent business as usual in Hollywood. Though the nominations, which were announced yesterday, include a few surprises, they are unlikely to improve the credibility or enhance the prestige of the awards. Unexpected contenders for the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, scheduled to be broadcast Aug. 27, include Christopher Meloni of NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for best lead actor in a drama series - though James Gandolfini of HBO's The Sopranos and Hugh Laurie of Fox's House did not make the cut. Kevin James of CBS' The King of Queens was nominated as best lead actor in a comedy series, while Jason Bateman of Fox's Arrested Development was overlooked.

Don't read this column yet. First, I want you to do something. Google "Chris Matthews + Kevin James." This will bring up video of the latter, a conservative Los Angeles radio pundit, being questioned by the former on MSNBC's Hardball. You "must" see this video. For the Internet deprived, here's a recap: Mr. James goes on Hardball to comment on a speech President Bush gave before the Israeli Knesset in which he accused unnamed politicians - read: Sen. Barack Obama - of a policy of appeasement toward terrorists.

Taken ** ( 2 STARS) $24.7 million $24.7 million 1 week Rated: PG-13 Running time: 93 minutes What it's about: An ex-CIA man (Liam Neeson, above) becomes an ear-witness, via cell phone, to the abduction of his daughter (Maggie Grace) from a Paris apartment; he proceeds to chop, stab and shoot his way through an underworld of shady Albanians in France. Our take: This film isn't an enjoyable martial-arts extravaganza; Neeson may be in fighting trim, but the smackdowns are notable for their ferocity rather than their athleticism.

One day, and it can't be soon enough for me, we're going to all wake up and wonder what kind of madness it was that gripped us in the summer of 2000 to get us watching "reality" TV series like "Big Brother," which debuted last night on the shirttails of the CBS hit "Survivor." The premise is to put 10 strangers in a back-to-the-basics house and cut them off from contact with the outside world. We get to watch and hear them via 28 cameras and 60 microphones. One by one, unpopular participants are voted out of the house.
