Fans who looked closely at Maryland's sideline during the season-opening football game may have been puzzled by what they saw on cards held up by team managers. Was that really a photo of TV talk-show host Regis Philbin, and — if so — what could Philbin, a Notre Dame graduate, possibly have to do with Maryland football? Yes, it was a color photo of the co-host of "Live! With Regis and Kelly. " But why the school chose to display Philbin's image remains as much of a local mystery as which color uniforms the Terps will wear on a given week.

Guess who's back with a new album? Yes, R.E.M. But also William Shatner. That's right, Captain Kirk has returned with Has Been (Shout Factory), his first album since Transformed Man in 1968, and this time, he somehow enlists Ben Folds, Aimee Mann, Brad Paisley, Henry Rollins and Joe Jackson to help him out. If the thought of Shatner climbing the charts isn't enough, guess who ELSE has committed his vocals to tape? Brace yourselves: Regis Philbin, the hyperactive talk-show host, offers up a batch of standards on When You're Smiling (Hollywood Records)

AS ELLEN Cutler of Aberdeen slips into the hot seat tonight across from Regis Philbin on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," let's run a few disclaimers here. I can't tell you how far she advanced. I can't tell you how much she won. I can't tell you what questions she answered brilliantly, or if there were any she choked on. And the reason for this is simple: If I told you, I'd have to kill you. OK, that's not the real reason. The real reason is, if I told you, they'd kill me. And by "they," I mean the show's big-shot producers up in New York.

You have to see it to believe it, and even then you want to nudge the person next to you and ask: "Have we somehow entered a parallel universe here?"What you're watching is America's newest quiz show, ABC's "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" a campy half-hour unlike probably any other game show you've seen.For openers, there's omnipresent music that swells so B-movie ominously you half expect Bela Lugosi to lurch across the set.Then there's the audience, which encircles the host and contestants like an edgy fight crowd at a Vegas casino.

As hard as it is to believe, I occasionally get mail from the one or two readers who glance at this column on their way to the TV listings.Given the sociopathic nature of these people, most of their letters quickly end up in the waste basket, although not before I show them around the office so everyone can have a good laugh.These are trying times in the newspaper industry, and we take our entertainment where we can find it.Yet a letter from a Mrs. A.N. Royce of Michigan stopped me in my tracks.

On the 17th floor of the Harbor Renaissance building, in a blue-carpeted room with expansive windows on two sides, men and women dressed mostly in dark suits sit sipping coffee from heavy white mugs. In the distance, the harbor glimmers, its blue surface dotted with water taxis and charter boats. Beyond the harbor, Baltimore's Federal Hill is blanketed in green, and beyond it, there are blocks and blocks of brick or stone rowhouses lined up like toys. But no one is paying any attention to the view.

This thing my wife has for Regis Philbin has been very difficult for me, although I like to think I've handled it as well as any man could, given the circumstances.Occasionally, it gets to me, though, like the time she was watching "Regis and Pinky Lee" (or whatever it's called) and started gushing about Regis' new blazer.Personally, I didn't think it did anything for the man, except make him look even boxier than usual.A man with that sort of Fred Flintstone-like build should avoid checkered patterns and plaids and stick to the darker colors -- Navy blue, maroon, etc. Gives you a more streamlined look, or so they say."

If you held off going to the bathroom during the Super Bowl to watch the new commercials, the good news was this: You didn't torture your bladder needlessly. In between those endless ABC promos starring white-hot game show titan Regis Philbin -- he's doing a guest spot on "Dharma & Greg," he's bantering with Sipowicz on "NYPD Blue," heck, he's probably the front-runner to take the New Hampshire primary by now -- viewers were treated to some fairly innovative spots. A Mountain Dew dude on a bicycle chasing a cheetah over the African plain was clever.
