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.

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.

* 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")

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.

So Made in Jersey starring Janet Montgomery was the first series to get canceled. I suppose I should have seen that coming. If there's one thing the last decade of television has proven conclusively, it's that American audiences simply will not put up with a TV show that has a British or Australian lead actor pretending to be one of us. The series also featured as the law firm's chief partner Kyle MacLachlan, who is something of a show-killer....

HER CRYSTALLINE, sky-blue eyes probably caught your attention before you even read these words. CBS3's Eyewitness News team has a permanent replacement for former traffic reporter Bob Kelly , who moved over to work the roads for Fox 29 in October. Enter Meisha Johnson , who starts Monday. Johnson drove more than 1,100 miles from Minneapolis to Philadelphia, and she'll soon appear on "Eyewitness News This Morning. " This frees up Vittoria Woodill , a freelancer, to do other projects for the station, including CBS3's "Down the Shore" segment, which airs from a different beach town every Thursday.

New management at CBS3 has axed three of the station's biggest on-air names - Beasley Reece, Kathy Orr and Chris May. Just before 2 p.m. Tuesday, "Eyewitness News" anchor May tweeted: "I've anchored my last broadcast at CBS3. Hope to see you all again. " A source close to the station informed me Tuesday that the station's new general manager has been on a mission to "turn things around" because of unsatisfactory ratings, and that people are being let go left and right.

'When animals attack . . . " is both the name of one of those ridiculous docu-specials Fox used to run, drawing an audience in with salacious footage of nonhumans going berserk, and the premise of Zoo , the adaptation of the James Patterson novel of the same name. Perhaps those Fox specials had more depth than this CBS summer offering, which premieres at 9 p.m. Tuesday. Mad Men 's James Wolk plays Jackson Oz, a guy with the kind of name that exists only in paperback airplane thrillers.

'Here comes the nerd squad!" This is how forensic scientist Gil Grissom is greeted as he arrives at a crime scene in the pilot episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in October 2000. Spoken by a couple of macho cavemen cops, the word nerd was meant to be derisory, but Gil wore it as a badge of honor during the nine seasons he was the top nerd on the CBS procedural, a tenure ending in 2009. CSI wasn't unlike most cop shows: Its heroes didn't pack guns and handcuffs, but tweezers and test tubes.

* THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN. 12:37 a.m. weeknights, CBS3.   I'M NO statistician, but men named James who were born between 1967 and 1978 seem to have had a slightly better chance than the rest of us to grow up and host an American late-night show. Even if that growing up occurred in Britain. Not that I'm bitter. So what if (at least) 51 percent of the population, U.S. or otherwise, is regularly overlooked when high-paying jobs open up for people named James or Jimmy (or Jay or Jon or Dave or Seth or Conan)
