CBS anchorwoman Katie Couric and the CBS Evening News come to prime time tonight, and if you haven't been watching the broadcast the past six months or so, I urge you to take this opportunity to check Couric and her newscast out. Here's the cynical explanation as to why the evening news for the first time will be shown in prime time: Fox has American Idol scheduled in the same time slot, so what has CBS to lose by throwing Couric up against it? In fact, CBS will save money by not having to put an expensive entertainment show on only to see it clobbered in the ratings.

If it's true that a society is known by its most popular artifacts, we are becoming a culture of comic books and games. Our biggest film and TV characters are based on comic book super heroes and villains, while our real life heroes are professional athletes. Watching tonight's premiere of “Gotham,” I couldn't help feeling that if there was any new series that would probably crack Nielsen's Top 10 this fall alongside all the different primetime NFL games and pre-game shows, it would be this one from Fox. You tell me if that's a good or bad thing.

Two films airing on Showtime today may be enough for you to consider calling in sick today, or at least taking a long lunch.Maggie Smith won the first of her two Academy Awards for 1969's "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" (11: 15 a.m.-1: 15 p.m.), where she's marvelous as a teacher at a Scottish girls' school in 1932 whose students become immersed in art, music and some ill-chosen politics. There are even a few romantic subplots and some schoolgirl conniving thrown in for good measure. But the story is secondary to Smith, who's so good that her performance has since become a model for every would-be actress trying to portray an English schoolteacher.

The state of "prime time": Going, going, gone!Witness:* In tough economic times, with audiences shrinking, the networks are going the discount route in many time slots with reality shows that are much cheaper to produce than an "L.A. Law" or a "Cosby Show."* Speaking of which, many long-running entertainment shows like "Cosby" are going off the air soon or, even worse, plummeting in quality at slalom speed.* And, the most helpless new feeling of all for programmers: No matter the fare, lifestyles are changing.

TOKYO -- He likes jazz, runs a country and publicly dumps on Japan's lack of international responsibility and its intransigent bureaucracy. Moreover, he wants the English-speaking world to know how he feels.In short, he could be any of a number of national leaders -- which is probably just the point. Japan's Prime Minister Morihiro Hosokawa considers himself part of the outside world. In case that message hasn't gotten out, he has gone beyond what the country's Foreign Ministry says any prime minister has done in memory by publishing an English-language translation of his thoughts while still in office.

Given America's love affair with prime beef, you can open a steakhouse these days and practically count on its being a success. At least that's what restaurateur Jordan Naftal is hoping. He and his wife, Ivette, are planning the grand opening for Jordan's Steakhouse (8085 Main St., Ellicott City) on Jan. 5. The restaurant will feature a variety of both USDA choice and prime steaks. The prime tenderloin, for instance, is priced about $10 more than the choice. Steamed salmon and broiled tuna, as well as free-range chicken, are also on the menu.

SYDNEY, Australia - Prime Minister John Howard and his conservative coalition easily won re-election yesterday as voters endorsed his economic platform despite misgivings about his decision to send troops to Iraq. Labor Party leader Mark Latham, who pledged to bring most of Australia's 850 troops in Iraq home by Christmas, was unable to persuade voters to abandon Howard's ruling coalition, which has presided over 8 1/2 consecutive years of economic growth. "I am truly humbled by this extraordinary expression of confidence in the leadership of this great nation by the coalition," said a beaming Howard, 65, after winning his fourth term as prime minister.

It's been almost two years since ABC's "Prime Time Live" came on the air promising to revamp the world of the weekly news magazine show. Things haven't exactly gone according to plan.The studio audience proved to be a critical fiasco. The highly-touted chemistry between co-hosts Sam Donaldson and Diane Sawyer produced much more smoke than fire. The ability to go live anywhere in the world sent the show to a dying tree in Austin, Texas, in the middle of the night.The studio audience has long since been shown the door.

Tight end Dennis Pitta's absence for the first 12 games of the 2013 season was a big reason why the Ravens offense struggled last year. Now, nearly 11 months after Pitta had surgery to repair a dislocated, fractured right hip, Pitta is armed with a new contract and said that his hip “feels great” and he is back to full health. “It's nothing I even think about when I'm at practice,” Pitta said Tuesday. “That's a good sign. I feel like I'm at 100 percent and able to run and do what I need to do.” Pitta also said his explosiveness has returned, which “was a process.” Pitta returned for the final four games of 2013, and caught 20 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown.

NBC News and anchorman Brian Williams have not done journalistic work the quality of Wednesday night's exclusive interview with Edward Snowden in a long, long time. Since NBC News had the interview for a week, according to Williams, it could have done more reporting on some of Snowden's statements. For example, he said he was not merely a systems analyst or the "hacker" as President Obama dismissively characterized him, but rather an employee of the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency trained as a traditional spy. He said he worked overseas under fake names in cover occupations for both agencies.

CNN's pivot to less news-talk and more documentary series in prime time got off to a mixed start with the debut of "Chicagoland" Thursday night.

The total audience numbered only 629,000 viewers for CNN versus 816,000 for MSNBC and 1.43 million for Fox. Sean Hannity was the competition on Fox, while MSNBC featured Lawrence O'Donnell.

Gen. Raoul Cedras and his allies have violated an agreement he signed in July that calls for General Cedras' resignation and Father Aristide's return on Oct. 30."

Beethoven was such a prolific composer that classical music organizations never run out of material when presenting all-Beethoven programs. Such concerts often focus on specific aspects of that great German composer's output. This certainly will be the case when the Amelia Piano Trio appears for Candlelight Concerts on Saturday, Jan. 25, at 8 p.m., at Howard Community College's Smith Theatre. The upcoming concert is billed as Beethoven Complete Piano Trios Concert No. 3. The third and final installment in this Candlelight project, the concert features Beethoven's Trio in E-flat Major, Op. 1, No. 1; Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 11 "Gassenhauer"; and Trio in D Major, Op. 70, No. 1 "Ghost.
