This tim they're filming in northeast Baltimore, in a modest building on Cold Spring Lane.But it's not a movie they're making; it's a nationally syndicated TV commercial for Choice Hotels International. The site is Flight Three, a Baltimore recording studio where, unbeknown to many in town, thousands of radio and television commercials are taped every year.The star this time is comedian Tim Conway, who will pop out of a suitcase in a 30-second spot touting family rates at three of the company's franchises.

Democratic mayoral candidate Martin O'Malley, whose strong showing in Tuesday's primary surprised even his most ardent supporters, gained one in three black votes and nine of every 10 white votes.According to a Sun analysis of voting results, O'Malley ran 28 percentage points higher in such black neighborhoods as Walbrook Junction than former City Council President Mary Pat Clarke, who is white, did in 1995 against Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke. O'Malley also posted 25 percentage points more than Clarke did in liberal white neighborhoods such as Hamilton, which gave Schmoke one in three votes four years ago.O'Malley picked up 53 percent of the vote citywide -- despite running against two veteran African-American politicians and 14 other candidates.

All the world's a stage for Tim Conway.His repartee is quick and he's the master of ad lib.Mention the Queen of England, who took in an O's game Wednesday, and his voice rings with sincerity and his face shows concern as he unseriously quips, "The Queen came by the room last night looking for jam, and I said, 'I don't have any. Please, don't bother me!' I didn't know it was her, otherwise I would have tried to get her some."He doesn't miss a beat, even while lunching yesterday at the Pimlico Clubhouse.

Dear God, or Dear Postal Workers, as the case may be: Could you please tell Hollywood there is no law that says comedies have to be stupid?Take "Dear God," for instance, which I'm sure you've seen, being in heaven and all. Let me sum up for the angelic secretary reading this letter, who probably never gets out to the theater: Greg Kinnear, lately of "Sabrina," plays Tom, a small-time grifter who's in deep to his loan shark and gets busted when he tries to...

Partway into the first act of "Just for Laughs: A Day With Gates and Mills," Tom Poston -- who co-stars with show's author, Tim Conway -- defines humor as "playing against the obvious."It's a lesson Conway doesn't seem to have learned in this amusing but largely unoriginal comedy, which completes its brief run at the Lyric Opera House this weekend.The play's thin premise concerns an over-the-hill comedy team hoping to make a comeback. The duo hasn't worked in 11 years, ever since the abrasive Gates (Poston)

If Paris Hilton can earn a series for her misadventures, why can't television's beloved old stars share their colorful lives in a show? After all, they've provided years of entertainment, a feat beyond Hilton's grasp. We won't always have this Paris. The cable channel TV Land is giving veteran actors their close-ups in the reality series Living in TV Land. The Wednesday premiere focuses on Dick Van Patten, who's zanier than the father he played on Eight Is Enough from 1977 to 1981. Van Patten is such a dynamic, competitive figure at 75 that he launches Living in TV Land with gusto.

Last year, a movie called "Air Bud" spotlighted Buddy, a golden retriever with a mean hoop shot. Unfortunately, that Buddy died of cancer. But if Batman can go from Michael Keaton to Val Kilmer to George Clooney, then why not "Air Bud: Golden Receiver," in which a quartet of adorable goldens sub for the original star?This time, Buddy (mostly played by Rush and Zach) and his boy, Josh (Kevin Zegers), tackle a new sport: football. Josh has a natural arm, and Buddy is -- well, they don't call 'em retrievers for nothing.
