It's official: Baltimoreans can't get enough of Barry Levinson, John Waters and David Simon. That's right, we love our hometown boys. According to Netflix, which tracks its rentals by the area of the country in which there's the heaviest demand, Baltimoreans are a receptive audience for one of their own - especially when they tell stories set and shot here. Among films especially popular here, Levinson's Liberty Heights and Avalon top the list, followed by Seasons 1 and 2 (in a combined boxed set)

Baseball Home Run Derby 7 p.m. [ESPN]: This is the two-hour version of "going, going gone" from the All-Star festivities at Yankee Stadium. OK, so we know who won (and in case you don't, we won't spoil the surprise), but it's still a hoot watching - and no deep counts.

BOSTON - As an average American confronted by roughly 500 ads a day, I have developed an immunity to the allure of commercials. Oh, from time to time, I become fond of a little quacking duck, but I can never remember what AFLAC stands for. I become amused by the woman getting altogether too much "organic experience" from Herbal Essences shampoo, but it doesn't lead me to the check-out counter. Nevertheless, I think I swallowed the biggest line of all: the ad for ads, the commercial for commercials.

MOST PARENTS realize that watching television is not the most healthy activity for their children. But the American Academy of Pediatrics may have startled them nonetheless with its recent recommendation that children under age 2 watch no television at all.The organization also recommended that parents keep logs for their pediatricians of the nature and amount of programming their older children watch.Scientific evidence to support the claims was scant, and the warning may be overblown. But the exaggeration helped make the point: Children need mental and physical activity, and watching television is the epitome of passivity.

The nervous feeling crept in during the eighth round, maybe the ninth. He couldn't win, couldn't keep the tireless man in front of him from pounding his ribs and the sides of his head. But Leavander Johnson wouldn't go down. He's a tough, old veteran, I thought at first. But then it occurred to me that I might be watching a man get beaten to death for the first time in my life. I was relieved when referee Tony Weeks stopped Jesus Chavez from hitting Johnson in the 11th round of their lightweight title fight 10 days ago. The deposed champion walked around the ring and seemed to speak coherently.

WASHINGTON -- Although a majority of Americans say that they closely follow the daily turns of the O. J. Simpson trial, the number of people across the nation watching television news shows or reading newspapers continues to decline, according to a new poll to be released today by a media monitoring group.The Times Mirror Center for the People and the Press estimated -- based on its survey results -- that about 40 million people, or about 24 percent of the adult public, are watching "all or most" of the daily, live Simpson coverage and that about 59 percent "watched, read or heard" about the trial coverage.

At the risk of getting too existential for our own good, we pose this question: When is a bar officially a sports bar? If it serves beer and the grainy 27-inch Sylvania in the corner is turned to the Ravens even though there are only three people watching -- whoops, make that two, since one of them just passed out (but still gripping his Bud Light!) -- is that a sports bar? FYI -- For more Baltimore-area sports bar listings, go online to baltimoresun.com/sportsbars.
