NBC is promoting "1600 Penn," a midseason sitcom from Baltimore native Jason Winer, as " 'Modern Family' meets 'The West Wing.' " Forget "The West Wing" part. After seeing three episodes, including the pilot that premieres with a sneak preview at 9:30 p.m. Monday, after "The Voice," I can tell you that this series is going to sink or swim as a family sitcom. And how much viewers like or don't like it as a family series is mainly going to depend on their reaction to Josh Gad, the Broadway star of "The Book of Mormon" who plays the screw-up son of the president of the United States (Bill Pullman)

There are only two weeks left to bid adieu to Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Jasper Johns, Willem de Kooning and all those other modernists whose brilliant, often challenging works fill the Baltimore Museum of Art 's West Wing. Only two weeks left to stand underneath "Flower Observatory," Olafur Eliasson's massive steel sculpture, and be awed one more time by the magical starscape revealed inside. The 16-year-old West Wing, where a substantial portion of the BMA's valuable contemporary art collection is showcased, is about to undergo an extensive yearlong makeover.

LOS ANGELES - It didn't take Mark Harmon long to accept the season-ending, four-episode guest role he has on The West Wing. "I got a scene faxed to me by my agent late on a Wednesday afternoon, and Thursday morning I was working," Harmon says. The former St. Elsewhere and Chicago Hope star made his first appearance on NBC's White House drama Wednesday, playing a Secret Service agent assigned to protect press secretary C.J. Cregg (Allison Janney) after she receives a death threat. Harmon, who's worked with David E. Kelley and Tom Fontana on past series - he's also directed a few episodes of Kelley's Boston Public - says the quality of the acting and writing on The West Wing is what led him to take the role.

Cast members of The West Wing are filming a 30-second promotional TV spot to get tourists back into Washington. According to E! Online, Martin Sheen and Rob Lowe are expected to urge viewers to take in the nation capital's charms, making their appeals right from the NBC show's set. The city's convention and tourism bureau will use the spot in its "Be Inspired" promotional campaign. Washington is taking a page out of New York's book. That city has tapped such high-powered celebs as Robert De Niro, Billy Crystal, Woody Allen, Ben Stiller, Kevin Bacon, Yogi Berra, Barbara Walters and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in its quest to bring back tourists.

Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing, is excited about the upcoming fourth season, mainly because "it's no longer last season." The third-season West Wing was thrown for a loop by Sept. 11 and never quite recovered. "Last season was a continual search for what I wasn't doing that makes the show work," Sorkin told a teleconference this week. "We just all felt all year long like we were doing something wrong, and we just couldn't put our finger on it." There were things people needed from entertainment after the terrorist attack, Sorkin says, including comedy and escape.

A call girl, a drug problem and a war hero who dies homeless and alone on a park bench next to a monument honoring fallen soldiers. Sounds like a fine holiday program to me.It's Aaron Sorkin's idea of one anyway, and he's turned it into a wonderful episode of "The West Wing" this week."

Rob Lowe's West Wing character became so scarce this season the actor finally distributed a milk carton with his picture on it, instructing anyone who sees Sam Seaborn to contact his manager. Wednesday, Seaborn left Washington for good. The mini-drama behind Lowe's exit, cobbled together through conversations with those who know the history, is the story of a wild ride on the prime-time roller coaster. Four years in the making, it involves a show with dubious commercial prospects becoming a major hit, a cameo role becoming its centerpiece, and a recognizable star soon to become a memory.

Most nights, and always after a nerve-racking commute from work, singer Wayna Wondwossen would crash on her couch feeling drained and frustrated. Just out of college, she worked as a writer in the White House Office of Presidential Letters and Messages. It was a prestigious position, sure, but much too buttoned-up for an artsy spirit. Drafting commemorative messages to dignitaries on behalf of President Bill Clinton hardly lent itself to creative expression. Wayna (she goes by just her first name)

Nina Ahuja has a winning smile, three screen names and 300 buddies on her AOL Instant Messenger list. On a typical school night, she does her homework with the Style Network playing on TV and Missy Elliott rapping from her iPod mini. A barrage of instant messages and mobile phone calls punctuates the cacophony. The only thing that jars her is the thought of unplugging anything - even for a day. "I'd probably go crazy. I'd be mentally unstable," says Nina, 16. An AIM user since the second grade, she has been glued to a cell phone for four years and barely scrapes by on 1,000 minutes of talk time per month.
