David Letterman was pretty thoroughly savaged by the press for his performance as host of the Academy Awards broadcast. But he's ready to do it again, he said in his first interview since the Oscars. "Overall, I enjoyed the experience, as strange as that may sound. The only thing that is sort of residually troubling to me is the notion that I embarrassed myself. But having developed fairly thick skin over my 48 years, that's not too much of a problem."What was a problem, he said, was trying to re-create the seat-of-the-pants feeling of his "Late Show" on CBS."

Analyst Brian Billick and play-by-play announcer Thom Brennaman delivered smart, smooth and informative coverage of the Ravens' victory over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday on Fox. The entire production - from Laura Okmin's sideline reports to the myriad and sharply focused angles from which the cameras closely followed key plays - was so vastly superior to what Ravens fans usually get with second- and third-string CBS Sports crews that the telecast felt...

"Jamesy Boy," an independent film directed and co-written by Maryland native Trevor White and starring Mary-Louise Parker, Ving Rhames and James Woods, will begin filming in Baltimore March 5, the Maryland Film Office announced today. The film, which will be shot over five weeks, tells the story of James (newcomer Spencer Lofranco), a street-tough gang member who ends up in a maximum security prison. There, he befriends a convicted murderer who becomes his mentor and helps turn his life around.

The ESPN "Monday Night Football" crew earned my respect before the game between the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals even started. It came during the pregame moment of silence for former Ravens owner Art Modell.  Placed at ground level, a camera shot the length of the field into the top of the stands in one of the end zones. It was shooting into a yellow ball of setting sun that was seeping through the stands onto the field.  The muted sun suffused the entire shot in a golden glow.

The news last week that the pilot for an HBO political satire starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus would be filmed in Baltimore starting next month was mainly treated as a local production story here. That's the way I wrote the piece online that broke the news of the filming, and that is probably as it should be. In a tough economy, the Maryland Film Office estimates that production of the pilot for a series about a woman vice president of the United States could have an economic impact in excess of $6 million and could create more than 700 jobs for Maryland crew and actors while "prepping and filming" in the state.

From beginning to end of each week's Fox baseball game, there are new faces, new pieces of technological wizardry and new approaches to telecasting the sport that the Grand Old Game never has seen.But -- and this will throw the baseball purists for a loop -- most of the Fox philosophy in covering the game is as down-to-earth as anyone could expect."It's a fine line we walk. We don't want to bastardize the game of baseball. There's not a lot more new stuff you can do," said Fox producer Carol Langley, who headed the production team on Saturday's Orioles-Chicago White Sox broadcast from Camden Yards.

Asterisks in the program booklet best explained the Washington Opera's new production of Verdi's "La Traviata." An asterisk beside a name denotes a debut with the company. All the major players -- the romantic leads on stage, the conductor and the production team -- were making debuts for its opening, Thursday night.Ensemble counts for much in opera. Good timing relies on familiarity. So even a small company can succeed handsomely when all the parts flow smoothly. For this "Traviata," the debutants knew their own roles but seemed oblivious to one another.

When actor Dabney Coleman emerges in the opening of the three-part, six-hour TBS documentary "Idols of the Game" tonight (8:05 p.m.) dressed in turn-of-the-century sportswriter garb and introduces himself as "The Scribe," the natural inclination is to groan in anticipation of what surely will follow.Surely, we pray, the folks at Turner won't try some meandering, misty-eyed Ken Burns-like dirge that reduces the participants to cartoon-like figures by lionizing them beyond recognition, will they?

At camp the morning after Tribal Council, Jay announces that he dreamt he was shot. Feeling a little worried? Tarzan and Troyzan are talking, and Troy has certainly bought what Kim was selling him, hook, line, and sinker, because he's glad that Mike is gone since Mike was trying to get rid of Troy (even though he wasn't, even a little bit.) I don't think the men have realized that they're screwed yet; we'll see if this episode is the one where they wake up. Treemail, and it's a good thing that the whole tribe went, since there was a bunch of stuff to bring back.

Baltimore's Everyman Theatre has general admission seating and on a recent weeknight, most of the desirable seats were filled by a few minutes after 7 - a full half-hour before the performance was to begin. The drill went as follows: Late-comers would ascend the 10 steps to the top of the seating platform in the intimate, black-box theater, and a dismayed look would spread across their faces as they surveyed the dwindling possibilities. (When they said, come early, they weren't kidding, one 20-something woman with a mass of carroty hair muttered to a companion.

When it comes to guessing which PBS stations produce the most programs,the big ones shouldn't be tough to figure.Boston's WGBH? Of course. It's got "Masterpiece Theater," "Mystery" and "Frontline," not to mention "The American Experience."New York's WNET? Makes sense. First, it's in New York, where everything's big. And second, it's responsible for "Great Performances."Washington's WETA? Naturally, considering it's got Ken Burns among its stable of stars.But don't forget Maryland Public Television.
