* GOLDEN BOY. 10 p.m. Tuesday, CBS 3. * PARADE'S END. 9 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, HBO. * MAKERS: WOMEN WHO MAKE AMERICA. 8 p.m. Tuesday, WHYY 12. COP SHOWS HAVE LONG paid the bills at CBS, but they haven't always brought the buzz. Which is why shows that push - gently - against the confines of the police procedural, like "Vegas" and "Elementary," continue to show up on the network better known for "NCIS" and "Criminal Minds. " And why "Golden Boy," the network's latest police drama, is being served with a twist you might not expect from CBS. I'd expect it, though, from Greg Berlanti, the producer whose tweak to "Golden Boy" creator Nicholas Wootton's show about an ambitious young detective (Theo James)

They are calling it "The Battle of Los Angeles. " Tomorrow evening at the Staples Center, World Boxing Council and International Boxing Association welterweight champion Oscar De La Hoya and Sugar Shane Mosley will square off for something far greater than just the titles. Up for grabs in this certain-to-be-lively showdown is the unofficial title of toughest dude in LA. In what is expected to set the record as the largest live gate for boxing in California, the Golden Boy and Sugar will settle a turf war that goes back to their boyhood years.

The cheers came in a rush for Antonio Tarver when the American light heavyweight was declared the winner of a 5-2 decision over Russia's Dmitri Vybornov yesterday. But soon the cheers turned to boos, which continued mercilessly for perhaps a minute. Tarver had been a reluctant combatant - he won only because his opponent was even more reluctant. "It wasn't a performance I anticipated," said Tarver, who said that waiting five days for his first match had made him tense. "Maybe it was that I was anticipating it too much.

Kostya Tszyu, Australia's undefeated golden boy, who came to America to defend his world title and gain world recognition, got a taste of good old American fortitude last night. The previously undefeated, Russian-born junior welterweight was stopped in the 10th round by underdog Vincent Phillips, a 33-year-old veteran from Las Vegas trying to salvage a troubled career. Phillips, his face covered with blood from a cut below his right eye, turned the fight around in Round 7 by knocking down Tszyo (18-1-1)

Oscar De La Hoya, boxing's Golden Boy, is wearing a shiner this morning the size of Nevada, compliments of Miguel Angel Gonzalez, the Mexican prizefighter who tried gamely but failed grandly to take the World Boxing Council 140-pound title here Saturday night. De La Hoya lost only three of the 12 rounds en route to his 23d straight pro victory, but he also lost his Golden Boy looks temporarily. Sometimes criticized for being too pretty, and having a suspect jaw, the 23-year-old Mexican American from East Los Angeles may have silenced those critics forever.

RE KOLB vs. Vick: This debate was always a no-brainer! Kevin Kolb (the supposed Golden Boy) has shown to be indecisive under pressure, demonstrating "happy feet," and looking shell-shocked after a tackle. Michael Vick, on the other hand, has demonstrated the athletic ability to make his teammates better. Do the critics of Donovan McNabb (including renegade DeSean Jackson) have enough pie on their face? Hannibal Casanova

There's a boxer here from Australia who wants you to see him. He wants everybody in America to see him. Because if we see him once, he believes, we'll ask to see him again, and again, for he is very quick, very cool and very lethal. He is a national hero to Australians, their golden boy, right up there with Crocodile Dundee and kangaroos on the country's list of most recognizable figures. Last year, for a title fight, he put 20,000 fans in Parramatta Stadium, Sydney's 35,000-seat rugby arena.

Students at Cherry Hill High School West, officials there hope, might think twice about bringing illegal drugs to school after seeing A.C. and Golden Boy in action in the school gymnasium this week. A.C. and Golden Boy are police dogs. They are very, very good at their job, which is sniffing out hidden drugs for the Atlantic City and Pleasantville police departments, respectively. Monday, they showed the students in several demonstrations just how good they were by discovering drugs hidden by their police officer handlers.

HAPPY birthday to Overbrook's Seth Green, who turns 38 on Wednesday. The prolific actor, known as Scott Evil from "Austin Powers," the voice of Chris Griffin on "Family Guy," and Oz on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," is all grown up. A couple of years ago, he married actress Clare Grant. Although he probably can't hardly wait for his 40s, Green will enjoy the year ahead. The stars guarantee satisfaction and deep meaning. Today, South Philly golden boy Fabian growls 69 and Action News' Rick Williams broadcasts 51. Tomorrow, original Phillie Phanatic Dave Raymond shuffles 56. Chadds Ford's Bill Bergey intercepts 67 on Thursday.

What would it take to become commissioner of the New York Police Department within 10 years of graduating from the police academy? What kind of person could accomplish so much - and all before his 35th birthday? What drive, determination, force of will? And what sacrifices? What ruthlessness? That's the fascinating premise of the new CBS police procedural Golden Boy , which premieres Tuesday at 10 p.m. It's one of two new prime-time cop shows this week - the other is the TNT reality series Boston's Finest , which premieres Wednesday at 9 p.m. Golden Boy is the latest addition to CBS' cop-glutted schedule and, after Blue Bloods , its second about a New York City police commissioner.

LIKE MANY OTHERS in the boxing world, the president and founder of Golden Boy Promotions long ago learned not to doubt Bernard Hopkins. "Look," Oscar De La Hoya said yesterday, "I haven't counted Hopkins out since he beat me [in 2004]. Even way before that. "Hopkins is a master at what he does, and psychologically, the question is how is [Sergey] Kovalev going to react to an 'Alien'? He's never fought an athlete like Hopkins. " De La Hoya, a newly minted International Boxing Hall of Famer, spoke at the Joe Hand Boxing Gym in Northern Liberties, where he spent the afternoon in support of Hopkins, his adversary-turned-promoter and business partner.

And comes now the bagpiper, with that music so mournful, so achingly familiar, so haunting in its melancholy beauty. Has any lyricist ever penned its equal? But come ye back when summer's in the meadow, Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow, Yes, I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow . . . - Danny Boy   Comes now Rory Boy, freckled of face, curly of hair, determined of jaw, purposeful of stride, eyes set on the far horizon at a goal only he can see. He is, as they say, The Next Big Thing, at once precocious and poised.

SOMEWHERE, Joe Frazier is fighting mad. For the first time in Olympic history, no U.S. boxer will win a medal. No gold, no silver, no bronze. The shutout was ensured after welterweight Erroll Spence lost a 16-11 decision to Russia's Andrey Zamkovoy in Tuesday's quarterfinals. And unlike other American fighters, Spence was given two chances to snag a medal. Last week, his Round-of-16 loss to India's Krishan Vikas was overturned after a review determined there were a number of uncalled holding fouls.

TV's prodigious son is back. Throw a Hungry Man dinner in the oven and let us feast.   After a spectacular sojourn in films (The Social Network, Moneyball), writer Aaron Sorkin returns to the weekly grind with not his most ambitious series (that would be The West Wing), but certainly his most daring. To celebrate the staff of a nightly cable news broadcast — even a fictional one — at a time when the country is so antagonistically polarized (and in an election year, no less)

HOUSTON - Now that he is a world champion, Danny "Swift" Garcia wants to prove to any remaining skeptics that he's no one-hit wonder . . . and to act like he isn't one, either. Less than a half-hour after the Juniata Park resident easily outpointed Mexican icon Erik "El Terrible" Morales to claim the WBC super-lightweight title, Garcia, 24, was discovering that a newly crowned champ has to get used to being the hunted, not the hunter. At a post-midnight news conference Sunday morning in the Reliant Center, an obviously pleased Garcia mentioned how strange - and nice - it felt to be champ when a member of the audience dared to suggest that his reign could be short and not-so-sweet.
