TO THE ENTIRE staff at KYW-TV CBS 3: I'd like to wish you hearty congratulations on your move from 5th and Market to 15th and Spring Garden. I remember the old studio very fondly as I was one of the teenagers who appeared in the 1991-92 season of "Rap Around with Ukee Washington. " Good luck to you all at the new studio. Bhoke S.

Bad luck, bad judgment: Last night was CBS's lamest by far because its top three events had all finished 24 hours earlier. It's rare that newspapers scoop television anymore, but yesterday's papers told you that Picabo Street won the women's Super-G, Donna Weinbrecht didn't medal in women's moguls and Masahiko Harada had failed once again in the normal hill ski jumping more than half a day before CBS got them on the air. Part of this was just...

For different reasons, Tom Heinsohn and CBS are both working happily on covering the National Basketball Association championship playoffs. During the course of the duel between the Boston Celtics and the Houston Rockets, Heinsohn was handed a new contract: He'll begin his fourth season next fall as NBA expert analyst. His employer, CBS, is pleased with unexpectedly positive preliminary television ratings. They indicate that this year's finals between the Celts and the rising Rockets are being watched by more people than tuned in last year's playoffs, when the glamorous Los Angeles Lakers defeated Boston for the title.

NEW YORK - As the Big East prepares to negotiate a television contract that could make or break the conference, it has chosen a man who has been part of some of the biggest media rights deals in college sports to be its new commissioner. The Big East on Tuesday hired CBS executive vice president Mike Aresco as it continues to rebuild from a tumultuous year of defections. "I'm not daunted by it all. I embrace the challenge," Aresco told the Associated Press in a telephone interview.

It's a problem when one has to read Twitter and Facebook for one's job and every 15 minutes one is confronted with a new faux outrage. Monday's is about CBS not picking up Drew , a new fall series wannabe about an adult Nancy Drew as a New York detective. The drama reportedly skewed "too female. " The show was to star Sarah Shahi , who's about as female as you can get and we would think skews "too male," and came from producers Joan Rater and Tony Phelan , who also had another drama in the running at CBS, called Doubt . Doubt is a legal drama starring Katherine Heigl , also quite female, and Laverne Cox , also female - except in North Carolina.

* MADE IN JERSEY. 9 p.m. Friday, CBS 3. * FRINGE. 9 p.m. Friday, Fox 29. IT TAKES only about two minutes for "Made in Jersey" to get its lead down to her pretty bra. I don't know if that's a record, but it says a lot about how deftly CBS' newest drama handles the introduction of Martina Garetti (Janet Montgomery), Jersey-girl-turned-Manhattan-lawyer, that women should be able to relate to her, even in her undies. I suspect guys will be fine with her, too. Montgomery ("Black Swan")

LARRY MENDTE is free and clear. For now. Common Pleas Judge Allan L. Tereshko has dismissed the remaining claims filed against the former CBS 3 anchor by ex-colleague Alycia Lane . But Lane's attorney, Paul Rosen , made it very clear that he planned to appeal the ruling. Tereshko dismissed the civil case filed against CBS 3, but had allowed some of the charges against Mendte to stand, pending further investigation. Those final claims were dropped last week after the judge found that Lane had deleted key emails from her computer.

THE STATE Supreme Court has ruled that the much-anticipated trial of Alycia Lane's civil suit against her former co-anchor Larry Mendte and their ex-employer, CBS, will remain in Philadelphia. Lane and her attorney, Paul Rosen, wanted the case to be tried here. CBS had filed an appeal to change the venue to New York, arguing that Lane's contract contained a clause saying that cases against the network should be heard in New York courts. Lane alleges in her lawsuit that Mendte illegally hacked into her email accounts and leaked details to the media.

People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. But what if people create a show for ABC called "The Glass House" and it's surprisingly like a show called "Big Brother" on CBS? Can CBS throw stones? Can the network sue? Attorneys for CBS have sent ABC executives a letter warning that "The Glass House" is "strikingly" similar to "Big Brother. " CBS also notes that ABC may be benefiting from the fact that 18 former "Big Brother" staffers and executives are now working on the planned ABC show.

Lawyers for CBS have dropped an emergency motion alleging a "judicial conspiracy" that asked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to delay former CBS3 anchor Alycia Lane's negligence lawsuit against the network. The suit says CBS failed to stop former coanchor Larry Mendte from hacking her email and feeding personal details and photos to gossip columnists. The July 15 motion was marked as withdrawn on Monday, according to the court's website. The notice did not state a reason, and CBS's lead lawyer, John M. Elliott, could not be reached for comment.

You might think they're crazy, but the first thing to know about Robert and Michelle King's new CBS series BrainDead is that the creators of The Good Wife have not lost their minds. They've just taken their penchant for politics and public policy on a CBS-style summer vacation, the kind in which ant-like creatures from outer space picnic in people's brains. Though no sillier at heart than Under the Dome , Zoo or Extant , the Kings' Washington, D.C.-set BrainDead , which premieres at 10 p.m. Monday, is sci-fi with a healthy sense of the ridiculous.

Yesterday, deadline.com reported that Rebel Entertainment Partners had filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against CBS over the syndicated legal shows Judge Judy and Hot Bench . Rebel is the talent agency that packaged Judge Judy more than 20 years ago. Rebel claims it has been denied contractually obligated payments since 2010 because Judge Judy has been "losing money.

Comcast-owned NBC caught five NFL games on Thursday nights, splitting a 10-game package over the 2016 and 2017 seasons with CBS. The Thursday night games aired on CBS or NBC also will be simulcast on the NFL Network and a digital platform, which will dilute viewership on any individual media outlet. On those Thursday night games - which typically are among the lower-rated NFL matchups - the league will benefit from three revenue streams: cable, broadcast-TV and digital. Media reports said that NBC and CBS paid about $225 million each for the five games, or $450 million over two seasons.

CBS3 meteorologist Katie Fehlinger, who was pregnancy-shamed last summer, returns to the airwaves on Wednesday. Her twin girls are here, and she's looking as fabulous as ever. How ya like me now? I wish that's what she would say to all the haters and fat-shamers who bullied her when she was hugely pregnant with twins. I'd like to see the face of that obnoxious TV viewer who called her a "sausage in a casing" when Fehlinger shows up on air Wednesday morning, looking as fabulous as ever.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ruled that former CBS3 anchor Alycia Lane's lawsuit against the station and her onetime coanchor Larry Mendte can proceed to trial. The high court on Wednesday declined to consider an appeal of a Superior Court decision in February that revived Lane's suit. Lane alleges that CBS3 was negligent for failing to stop Mendte when he hacked into her work and personal email accounts, and spread gossip about her to the news media. Superior Court ruled that a lower-court judge erred when he threw out Lane's case in 2012, after deciding that she intentionally destroyed a laptop computer containing files critical to the station's defense.

CBS3 ANCHOR Erika von Tiehl didn't try to hide her embarrassment on the witness stand in Common Pleas Court yesterday as she testified at the trial of her alleged stalker, John Hart, whom she briefly dated in 2011. "Knowing that everybody out there is reading about me and associating me with him . . . it's embarrassing," von Tiehl said. "But not embarrassing enough not to [testify] because somebody needs to stand up. " Hart, 39, of Havertown, is charged with stalking, harassment, identity theft and related offenses for allegedly sending von Tiehl threatening messages, changing her phone number without her permission and getting her cable service cut after she broke off their brief courtship.
