I like Oprah Winfrey, and I was happy to see her Tuesday morning on CBS with her old pal, Gayle King, hitting on all cylinders as they hyped the gate for her interview with Lance Armstrong. She promised King, Charlie Rose and everyone else on the last-place morning show set, "You will be satisfied," by the interview that airs Thursday night on the OWN cable channel. "You will come away understanding that he brought it," she said, though she did hedge on theĀ  specific extent of his confession versus her expectations.

Laura Bush to write memoir; tonight she'll show off White House First lady Laura Bush is making lots of news herself these days. Yesterday, she confirmed to the Associated Press that she is planning to write a memoir and has met with publishers. "I've been talking to some publishers, but nothing has happened yet - just a few visits," she said in a telephone interview. While Nancy Reagan famously settled scores with old foes such as former White House chief of staff Donald T. Regan in My Turn, Bush has vowed to write a positive book, with a minimum of criticism, according to one publishing executive with knowledge of the meetings with the first lady.

"Sex in the Soviet Union," airing at 10 tonight on WJZ-TV (Channel 13), is classic Ted Koppel television. It's a sexy topic treated in enough of a high-road fashion for the show to cut it both ways: earn ratings and respect. It's a walk along the tightrope "Nightline" has trod so successfully with shows ranging from Jim and Tammy Bakker to Madonna."Unprecedented freedom of expression" in the Soviet Union, Koppel tells viewers at the start of tonight's show, "has resulted in a jarring explosion of sexual images, which themselves reflect the far more profound changes that are convulsing that country.

Silent in the first days after learning that ABC is seeking to drop him in favor of CBS's David Letterman, Ted Koppel now argues that Nightline remains relevant, competitive and profitable -- no matter what his corporate employers may say. "We have contributed to the network's commitment to operate in the public interest," Koppel writes in an opinion piece in today's New York Times, "but we have also helped pay the rent. Conservatively speaking, Nightline has earned well over half a billion dollars for a succession of corporate owners over the years.

ABC's "The Koppel Report: Sex in the Soviet Union" is just what you think it is -- a cheap and titillating way to get viewers to watch a news documentary. But it is also something more.Because in examining Soviets' views toward this most personal of acts, this hour reveals much of the confusion about individual liberty -- the meaning of it, the limits to it, the appropriate relationship between the individual and the state -- that currently grips that nation in turmoil.There has been an outpouring of sexual material in the Soviet Union since Gorbachev's glasnost relaxed the strict rules that used to keep a tight rein on behavior.

Ted Koppel retired from ABC News a few years back, but he certainly hasn't stopped delivering thoughtful and serious journalism. And he continues that tonight with a new documentary, Koppel on Discovery: The Last Lynching. There is a warning that some viewers might find scenes and language "disturbing." Consider whether you want your children seeing images of lynchings of black citizens in 20th-century America and hearing the "n" word. Discovery is airing the program at 10 p.m., as late as possible to keep it from young children, but still in prime time when the greatest number of viewers are available.

NEW YORK - Ted Koppel knows that persuading television viewers to tune into a four-part documentary about China's economic growth could be a difficult sell. So in the days leading to the broadcast of his latest Discovery Channel program, the veteran newsman took a drastic step to gin up interest: He brought his daughter's dog onto The Daily Show and suggested that the network might send Pepper to "Bideawee Farm" if the series doesn't get good ratings. All kidding aside, Koppel feels a particular sense of urgency about The People's Republic of Capitalism, which premieres tomorrow.

No one in television news clarifies complicated issues better than Ted Koppel, and tonight at 8 on the Discovery Channel, he takes on one of the thorniest: how to find a balance between security and civil liberties in post-Sept. 11 America. Viewers sifting through the crush of anniversary programming looking for one show that will best help them make sense of the fallout from the attacks of 2001 need look no further. Though engaging and slickly produced, Koppel on Discovery: The Price of Security is above all a public-affairs program that addresses viewers as citizens with the goal of informing them about the changing world in which they live.

Nightline-without-Ted Koppel debuted in the wee hours Tuesday morning after ABC Monday Night Football and late local news. It was probably a good thing that many viewers had presumably already gone to bed. It was a smooth launch with no major glitches or serious mistakes. Give James Goldston, the new executive producer, credit for delivering a polished-looking production. But there is polished, and there is excessively slick. In trying to energize the broadcast through the use of flashing lights, banks of video monitors, quick camera cuts and a backdrop of Times Square, Goldston has created a garish-looking TV creature more reminiscent of the carnival midway than the pioneering broadcast whose name it bears.

With Ted Koppel's departure last night from ABC's Nightline, the face of the ever-changing daily news became even less familiar. Koppel, who signed off for the final time with his standard line, "For all of us here at ABC News - good night," was the fourth network news anchor to leave his position in what seems to have been a yearlong exodus of newsmen who defined the business. After 20 years with virtually no change, all three major networks have lost, for various reasons, their news anchors: Tom Brokaw retired in December from NBC Evening News; Dan Rather in March resigned from CBS Evening News, and Peter Jennings left the anchor desk of ABC World News Tonight in April and died of lung cancer four months later.
