The trouble with most concert films is that, at bottom, they're neither.They don't work as movies because there's no plot, little action and hardly anything in the way of character. Unless, of course, the director has tried to splice some in, in which case you're left with something looking like a music video gone horribly wrong.At the same time, they're not much use as concerts, either. For one thing, they're rarely loud enough (if they were, they'd drown out the Jean-Claude Van Damme flick two theaters over)

This episode foreshadows the drama to come at Leah's gala next week. As usual, not much happened. Leah is throwing a gala, at the low price of $12,500 a table. Adriana and Joanna join her for a tasting. Joanna calls Adriana out for hitting on Roman, which Adriana blows off. Then-like everything else on the show-the topic turns back to Karent. Joanna tells Adriana that she was too hard on Karent for "beating her to the tweet. " Marta tries to apologize to Roman, but he basically tells Marta she is lazy.

Let's cut to the Indy car chase and say what most of America and CBS are thinking: This year's Final Four got saved Sunday by Michigan State and Duke. Pour yourself a beverage, perhaps a Captain (Raymar) Morgan. What might have been — Tennessee vs. Butler in one game, West Virginia vs. Baylor in the other — would have been a reason next weekend to, what, clean out the gutters? Not that Tennessee isn't a fine team, once you set aside a season filled with gun charges and player suspensions.

Houston (3-9) at Pittsburgh (7-4-1) Time: 1 p.m. today. TV: Ch. 13. Line: Steelers by 13 1/2 . Key stat: The Steelers are 6-1-1 since their 1-3 start. Worth watching: QB Tommy Maddox (16 TDs vs. 11 interceptions) returns to Steelers' lineup. Texans rookie QB David Carr has thrown nine TD passes vs. 11 interceptions. Outlook: Thanks to Maddox, the Steelers are back among the AFC's elite. He gets to ease his way back into the lineup against the Texans, who can't score. San Francisco (8-4)

Once again, the holiday season is upon us. And Santa won't be the only one with travel headaches. Just think about the teams that will participate in this year's non-Bowl Championship Series games. Take Texas, for example. The Longhorns were steered toward a big BCS payday, probably at the Fiesta Bowl, until Kansas State upset Oklahoma, seriously messing with Texas. Now the Longhorns get a trip to the Holiday Bowl. Almost the same, right? After all, it's only another 365 miles - and $12 million - from Tempe, Ariz.

Today's games Miami (9-5) at Minnesota (4-10) Time: 1:30 p.m. TV: Chs. 13, 9. Line: Dolphins by 3. Key stat: It's Vikings' No. 3-ranked offense vs. Dolphins' No. 2-ranked defense. Worth watching: Dolphins RB Ricky Williams has rushed for at least 100 yards in the past five games. Vikings RB Michael Bennett (1,160 yards) has seven 100-yard games. Outlook: The Dolphins know next week's game at New England is likely to decide the AFC East, but a win here would help their playoff seeding.

It has not been a good year for prime-time TV. Few of the new fall network series look to be a breakout hit, and viewing is down across the board for returning series on network and cable. But it is a totally different story when it comes to politics and television. Record after record has been set in the size of audiences, starting in January with the Iowa caucuses and continuing with primary night coverage, national conventions and debates on all channels. After more than two decades of declining audience interest in TV coverage of presidential politics, suddenly this year, Americans can't get enough of it. And once the cable channels and networks figured out that there was ratings gold to be had in TV politics - especially with young adults who told pollsters they were spending up to one-third of all their TV viewing watching the candidates - industry executives have responded with more coverage.

Kentucky public high school officials are, in Bluegrass State parlance, betting on a long shot in an attempt to level the athletic playing field between public and private high schools there. If they're successful, the measure could have ramifications all over the country, including in Maryland. The state's Board of Education, at the behest of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association, might vote this week on a proposal that would effectively place a serious crimp in the ability of the state's private schools to recruit athletes.

One of the most intriguing contract negotiations this winter will occur in Los Angeles between Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti and super agent Scott Boras. At stake is the future of 2003 National League Cy Young Award winner Eric Gagne. From 2002 to 2004, Gagne was one of the most feared closers in baseball. In January 2005, he signed a two-year, $19 million deal that included a $12 million option for 2007. Because of various injuries, he has made just 16 appearances since signing the deal.

WASHINGTON -- Compared with its obvious inspiration, Black Like Me, it is easy to knock Black. White., the new reality TV experiment on race relations on FX - and many people do. "Nonsense masquerading as substance," scoffs USA Today critic Robert Blanco. Maybe it is. Or maybe it's a rare injection of substance into TV's usual nonsense. Maybe, wrapped in its unreal "reality show" grab for drama, suspense and easy laughs, it might help us Americans learn something about how we get along, or don't get along, in our ethnic stir-fry.

Despite its name, the "we" turn was one man's inspiration. Scott Grossman conceived of it alone last week in the hallways of River Hill High School in Clarksville, where he had quietly extracted himself from the company of 51 shimmying Miss USA 2005 contestants. The pageant choreographer was having "a breakdown moment," but not in the good, "break it down!" dancing kind of way. He was in crisis mode. Something was terribly awry with the swimsuit parade, but what? "I knew there needed to be a turn, but very soft," he said.
