Vapor trails of Aqua Net wafted through the air at Cafe Hon on 36th Street yesterday, and the place was a riot of canary-yellow Lycra and lizard-green Spandex, shimmering two-foot beehive hairdos and leopard-print shirts with fox-fur collars. The occasion was the filming of two live shots for the new UPN talk show, On-Air with Ryan Seacrest, and it gave all of America an up-close-and-personal look at the "Hampden Hon" lifestyle. You wonder if all of America will ever recover. Actually, since Baltimore often makes the national airwaves for such pleasant topics as its murder and drug addiction rates, a fun glimpse at the retro "hon" look of big hair and loud clothes was definitely a step in the right direction, image-wise.

Network TV never knows when to stop shilling, selling, hyping and hustling its audience. It's like a law of physics that whenever a network creates something of quality, it must always find a way to cheapen the product in trying to squeeze every last penny plus one out of it. That was the big story with NBC's pregame coverage of the Ravens 49-27 debacle in Denver Thursday night. The network's "Sunday Night Football" franchise is one of the epic success stories of prime-time TV, a winning hybrid of sports and pop culture programming that draws a larger audience than any sports program in history.

One thing is clear: Americans loved Dick Clark. As soon as the news of Clark's death at 82 of a heart attack reached the world Tuesday afternoon, tributes, thoughts, reflections (and a few loving jokes) flooded Twitter - both from famous folks and regular fans who grew up with the TV mainstay.  Here are some of our favorites so far: • Thanks for everything, Dick Clark. You changed the world of pop music and you will be sorely missed. -- Sony Music Global, @SonyMusicGlobal •  Am still amazed that Dick Clark was only 82...

She thinks he has funny hair. He thinks she's fat. She called him a "snake oil salesman." He called her a "loser." They've been badmouthing each other on the airwaves since December with the kind of bullying bluster most of us outgrow in junior high school. We can't make it stop, but we can decide who's more annoying. Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump are going head to head in the current round of March Madness: Celebrity Version, our NCAA-style tournament devised to determine, through your online votes, the celebrity of whom we are most weary.

Digging up this week's sports media notes while wondering whether they don't do drug testing at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show because they don't want to mess up the carpets: * In the proud tradition of Peter Puck, Fox will feature "The Adventures of Digger and Friends" during its NASCAR telecasts this season. The first segment debuts Sunday during the Daytona 500 preview show (2 p.m., chs. 45, 5). Digger has accompanied Fox's in-track Gopher Cam, but now he's being upgraded to his own little show with a cast of characters, including the sure-to-be-hissable security guard badger, Lumpy Wheels.

Ready for your 15 minutes of fame? Well, hurry on down to Hampden this afternoon, hon. That brand-new talk show, On-Air With Ryan Seacrest, is going live today from the heart of Hampden, at Cafe Hon. The American Idol host/hottie just kicked off his syndicated talk show last week. No, Ryan won't be here. But, Ralphie May will be. For those not up on reality-show history, Ralphie's the chunky guy who came in second in last summer's NBC show Last Comic Standing. He'll be playing roving reporter doing a live remote Q-and-A on Ryan's show - with the aid of assembled Baltimoreans.

There are certain types of people who are drawn to Times Square on New Year's Eve - tourists, college students, frostbite enthusiasts and those who enjoy standing pressed against strangers for hour after excruciating hour. This year you can add one more group to the list - the men who would be Dick Clark. With the world's oldest living teenager sidelined by a stroke, the wannabes are scrambling to show America they can carry Clark's torch, while the networks see a chance to establish new New Year's traditions.

Instead of purple, brown was the color of the evening at M&T Bank Stadium. That would be chocolate brown, as more than 2,000 people swarmed through the stadium's south club level lounge for the "18th Annual Chocolate Affair." More than 50 chocolatiers, restaurateurs and caterers had set up shop, offering chocolate in every imaginable form and formula. There were almost as many choices in entertainment, too: a dance band on one stage, a jazz band on another, belly dancers, magicians, massage therapists, cooking demonstrations and a fashion show.

They are being paraded before us, the obese lispers, the sallow Goths. The dwarfs (some even shorter than Ryan Seacrest) and the 6-foot-4-in-stocking-feet female giants. Frizzy-haired, pop-eyed, snaggle-toothed, they grooved on last Wednesday's episode of American Idol to the Pussycat Dolls' song "Don't Cha." Don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me. ... This is supposed to be hilarious because, you see, these people are not hot - most are quite the opposite. The early weeks of the talent competition's open tryouts have become a televised ugly pageant, complete with vicious insults from the snickering judges.
