LOS ANGELES - Oprah Jr.? King World isn't pitching Generation Y talker Ananda Lewis exactly as such, but it's clear that her syndicated show, due Sept. 10, has been designed to approximate Winfrey's self-actualizing, feel-good vibe for viewers on the younger end of the 18-to-49-year-old advertising demographic. Lewis, 28, comes to daytime talk by way of BET's Teen Summit, MTV's Hot Zone and commercials for Pepsi. Late in the day on Monday, at the annual summer TV press tour in Pasadena, she told critics that most of what passes for TV talk these days makes her want to throw up. "I'm sick of seeing a 15-year-old giving paternity tests to five guys about who her baby's dad is," she said.

Maryland's two-day crime summit started on a raucous not yesterday as a debate over crime turned into a shouting match on "The Montel Williams Show," with Gov. William Donald Schaefer doing some of the yelling.Along with the governor, others featured on the taped show at Coppin State College in West Baltimore were actor Charles Dutton, an ex-Baltimorean and ex-convict; radio personality Tom Marr; the governor's longtime foe, attorney William H. Murphy Jr.; and three teen-age prisoners.The show offered lively debate on gun control, harsh sentencing guidelines and how to wage the war on drugs, although no one had much air time to make their point -- which clearly irritated the governor.
