IT'S GETTING a little easier to see why Paula Patton walked out on Robin Thicke . Perhaps it wasn't just the alleged philandering, the music video with the naked models or the MTV VMA grinding with Miley Cyrus . Maybe it was also the drug abuse and the lying. Now that the writers of the megahit "Blurred Lines" are being sued by the estate of Marvin Gaye for the song's similarities to Gaye's "Got to Give It Up," Thicke is pulling way back on his contributions to the song's creation.

WONDER WHERE the old-fashioned heart and humor at the core of Paul McCartney's music came from? Answers can clearly be found in his recent foray album into jazz-tinged American pop standards, "Kisses on the Bottom," featuring ditties like "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive. " This is music McCartney was spoon-fed as a Liverpool lad, "especially at New Year's Eve parties at Uncle Joe or Aunt Jan's where they'd roll the carpet back, get the piano out and sing all these songs," he recalled.

Wonder upon wonders, "new" material from the Beatles is still springing forth — on Apple apps, videodiscs, CD, and soon at a movie theater near you. Material evidence George Harrison was the gearhead of the group — quite a good photographer and gadget lover — and also a media hoarder. Evidence comes to the fore Tuesday with the home-video release of Martin Scorsese's documentary film "George Harrison: Living in the Material World" and the simultaneous release of the Abrams Books multitouch iPad/iPhone/iPod e-book of the same name.

It's possible that Adele won't be the runaway winner at the 2012 Grammy Awards, to be broadcast at 8 p.m. Sunday on CBS3 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. With the Grammys, after all, the inexplicable often occurs. Last year, Canadian indie band Arcade Fire upset heavily favored Eminem for best album, the same category in which Herbie Hancock's The River (The Joni Letters) caused a tizzy by beating out both Amy Winehouse and Kanye West in 2008. But in 2012, it would stand to reason that nothing can stand in the way of Adele.

I LOVE LISTS, but I'm not crazy about 10 Best lists, since I like to think there's more to TV criticism than dividing sheep from goats. Plus, I always forget something marvelous. And there is, believe it or not, a lot to marvel at on television, so much that even exceptional shows may get lost in the crowd. So while you don't need me to tell you that AMC's "Breaking Bad" had an extraordinary season in 2011, or that ABC's "Modern Family" is still really, really funny, you might be able to use a guide to some of the good stuff - some of it on Top 10 lists, some maybe not - that a lot of viewers missed but that hasn't disappeared: 1 "Men of a Certain Age. " Ray Romano's splendid and bittersweet return to television, produced by Romano and former "Everybody Loves Raymond" writer Mike Royce, starred Romano, Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula as middle-aged friends and won a Peabody Award but not enough viewers to keep TNT from canceling it. Season 1 is available in DVD and both seasons are for sale on iTunes.
