There goes that O'Malley guy again, playing to populist outrage about our gas-and-electric bills and the fat cats at Constellation Energy. Martin O'Malley worked this issue to become governor in 2006; now he's running for re-election with it, and who can blame him? It's not like he has to say much to get the crowd riled up. There's plenty of genuine populist anger these days - and it's aimed at corporate America instead of the usual target, American government. Indeed, the only outrage we've heard from elected leaders in the last 30 years was the Reagan-inspired variety that went something like: government bad, Wall Street good; government is too big, taxes too high, unions too powerful, and unless the wealthy get tax breaks and we deregulate everything and bust the unions, the whole country will be on welfare under a Marxist regime.

Two unscripted dramas starring Shattucks unfolded in sync this week. Molly Shattuck was on Secret Millionaire just hours after Mayo Shattuck took Warren Buffett to Divorce Court. Life is full of strange coincidences, but none stranger than this: On the same day that the Constellation Energy CEO broke it off with a billionaire, his wife was on national TV bonding with the poor. Even the stars of these separate dramas were surprised by the convergence that made for an All in the Family teaser for Fox 45's 10 p.m. news.

First of all, let me tell what is not on tonight, so you can plan your viewing accordingly. While the Fox reality show, Secret Millionaire, returns for its second week, the segment featuring Baltimore's Molly Shattuck will not air until Dec. 17, according to a Fox spokesman. Executive producer Greg Goldman had told The Baltimore Sun that he thought the Shattuck episode would air this week, but viewers will just have to wait. This is the show that features millionaires going undercover to spend a week with people from less-privileged backgrounds, and them giving at least $100,000 to one of the people they meet.

The most successful reality shows are those that connect with or exploit tensions in the larger society. If nothing else, Secret Millionaire, a new Fox series debuting tonight, certainly scores on that count. The series, which some Baltimore viewers have surely heard about because area resident Molly Shattuck is a participant, speaks to the nation's economic crisis and the social-class tensions connected with thoughts of who caused the problems and who will suffer most. The premise takes a millionaire out of his or her world of privilege each week and places each undercover in situations of economic distress and hardship.

The Simpsons spin-off Futurama may still be canceled, but the cult favorite has found a new life as a series of direct-to-DVD movies. Tonight, Comedy Central returns the gang to TV as it re-airs the first Futurama feature, Bender's Big Score. The film picks up where the show left off, with a sly reference to being canceled (Fox dumped it in 2003 after four years of monkeying with its time slot). Fry and the gang are charged with making a delivery to "the Nude Beach Planet," where characters' naughty bits are cleverly covered.

HOLLYWOOD -- The Oracle of Omaha is Tinseltown's newest animated hero. But, at least in Warren E. Buffett's crystal ball, he still has no future here. "I can't afford to go Hollywood," he said. "There's no money in this stuff." If anyone knows the value of a dollar, it's a guy with 40 billion of them. Which is why the world's second-richest individual decided to become a cartoon character to teach children financial responsibility. Working pro bono, Buffett will play himself in a 13-part DVD series, The Secret Millionaire's Club, produced by DIC Entertainment Corp.

Sheila Dixon made her debut the other night as a Stoop Storyteller. Make that Poop Storyteller. The mayor took the stage at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall on Monday night to share a holiday memory as part of the popular storytelling series. When she was a little girl growing up in West Baltimore, Dixon said, she and her older brother and sister always climbed into bed together on Christmas Eve to await Santa. Then along came another little Dixon. The baby of the family was about 9 months old when his first Christmas rolled around.
