Getting on a game show was on my list of "Things to Do in L.A. " So was finding a stunning blond California girl. So, after I was rejected for "Scrabble," I decided "The New Dating Game" might fulfill two goals. Auditions were tough.

It's not long into The Bachelor before Chris O'Donnell utters the dreaded six-letter F-word, which strikes fear into the hearts of seriously uncommitted males everywhere: The Future. In the case of Gary Sinyor's by-the-book comedy, the letter also stands for feeble and formulaic. The Bachelor trots out one of those ideas whose lame implausibility can't possibly sustain a feature, and then proceeds to beat it into insensibility. For O'Donnell's Jimmie Shannon, the moment of untruth arrives after three years of dating Anne (Renee Zellweger)

Helene Eksterowicz takes a demure sip of her Diet Coke, lays on a thousand-watt grin, and issues a proclamation: The Bachelor babe is a proud Jersey girl, and if anyone has a problem with it, too bad. Specifically, she won't brook any back talk about the proud dock town where her family has lived for generations. "Gloucester's a small town," she says. "When the chips are down, we pull together. I never had a problem growing up here. " Eksterowicz, 27, a school psychologist who still lives with her parents in the house where she grew up, is one of two finalists in ABC's ratings-star romance reality show, The Bachelor.

Stuart Parmet would seem to have it all. At 37, tall, with boyish good looks, he has plenty of money, a carefully restored house near the Art Museum, his own hot tub, a glossy new BMW, a thriving business. And women. Boy, does he have women. Women, women everywhere, and not a one he'd marry. Parmet is one of 1.88 million American men between the ages of 35 and 44 who have never married - a group whose numbers have more than doubled since 1980, when there were 929,000.

The story line for the new season of American Idol was established almost immediately. Nicki Minaj was the last of the judges to make an appearance, emerging from her limo in a stunning drum majorette hat. Pecking order established. Ain't no party until Ms. Nicki arrives. She then set about dominating the program, mugging endlessly for the camera, spewing nonsense phrases, monopolizing the conversation, drifting into a bizarrely posh English accent, making up crazy nicknames for everyone on the set, and visually fondling every good-looking male contestant.
