Penn State leads the series, 11-3. It is Penn State's first game to have an announced time, and means the Lions will be playing at least one prime-time regular-season game for the 12th consecutive season.

The top 10 reasons a 25-year-old woman merits a prime-time TV interview: 1. She won the high-jump at the Penn Relays. 2. She won a Rhodes scholarship. 3. When she was 3, a tragic accident/horrible disease/tainted hotdog crippled her and now she has bicycled across the United States to raise awareness for the physically challenged. 4. She parlayed $1,400 in bat mitzvah gifts into $16 million on the stock exchange, and she understands pork belly futures. 5. She is pitching for the Phillies next season.

By showing some of its sitcoms repeatedly, Fox Broadcasting Co. is going to do the best thing to prime time TV in years (Gail Shister's column, Dec. 29). Why should viewers have to choose which of two or more shows they would like to watch? The networks play reruns all the time. The average show has about 22 episodes per year, and there are reruns of every one of them at least once the same year. Television would be better if each show runs two or three times the same week.

You can touch that dial all you want. If you're looking for a live telecast of the complete women's basketball gold-medal game Friday, the NBC Olympics TripleCast is your only recourse. "If that's true, I'd say I couldn't believe it," said Theresa Grentz, the U.S. women's coach. "I'd find it heartbreaking. "Maybe we haven't educated the right people. It's certainly entertaining enough. " Still, NBC will include the women's game - with the United States involved if it beats the Unified Team in today's semifinal at the Palau d'Esports - in its Friday 90-minute late-night package, which airs at 12:35 a.m. The men's gold-medal game is scheduled to be televised in its entirety Saturday.

The Eagles are once again prime real estate.

The game will be played at Lincoln Financial Field and televised locally on NBC10.

time player in Tiger Woods, it is making a bid for TV's prime time. That is among the PGA Tour's proposals in ongoing negotiations with networks for TV contracts that begin with the 1999 season, sources close to the talks told the Associated Press. Several proposals were presented by the tour in talks that began last week with CBS, NBC, ABC, ESPN and Fox, the sources said yesterday, and commissioner Tim Finchem was waiting to see which options would fly. The possibilities included starting the season with consecutive events played in Hawaii and broadcast in prime time on the East Coast, the sources said.

Some of the nation's biggest banks raised their prime rate this morning, but the rest of the industry was waiting to see what competitors would do before making a similar decision. Stock prices nosedived 27 points in the first 10 minutes of trading on the news that Citibank, the nation's largest bank, and Chase Manhattan, the third- largest, had yesterday afternoon raised the rate they charge favored customers by one-quarter point to 7 3/4 percent. This morning, several other banks followed suit, including Manufacturers Hanover, which is ranked fourth in the nation by deposits, and Chemical, ranked sixth.

THE PROLIFERATION of networks has watered down the experience of playing prime-time games. For years, there was "Monday Night Football" and nothing else. No Sunday night games, no Saturday playoff games and certainly no Thursday night games. Chip Kelly coached his 19th game for the Birds last night. Counting last year's postseason loss to the Saints, this will be his sixth game in prime time. From 1982-87, the Eagles did not appear on prime time even once - mostly because the team wasn't very good.

The Eagles open the season on Monday Night Football, will keep Philadelphia glued to the television on Thanksgiving for the second straight season, and will wait until December to visit the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots and then host LeSean McCoy. Those are some of the highlights of the team's 2015 schedule, which was released Tuesday night. The Eagles will play five prime-time games and six nationally televised games. The Eagles begin the season against the Atlanta Falcons on Sept.

LIKE EVERYONE else, Jon Gruden has been fascinated by Chip Kelly's wheeling and dealing this offseason. "I'm curious just like everybody else," ESPN's "Monday Night Football" analyst said. "I was curious when they got Sam Bradford. I was curious when they let McCoy go. I was curious when they got the two backs they signed . He's obviously got a master plan. " The NFL clearly believes Gruden isn't alone in his curiosity about Kelly and the Eagles. The 2015 schedule was released last evening, and it included five prime-time appearances for the Birds.

Penn State will open the 2015 Big Ten season Sept. 19 against Rutgers in a night game at Beaver Stadium, the Big Ten Network announced Monday. Game time will be set at a later date. The two teams began their Big Ten schedules last year on the third Saturday of their seasons under the lights at High Point Solutions Stadium, with the Nittany Lions rallying from a 10-point deficit to win, 13-10, on Bill Belton's touchdown run with 1 minute, 13 seconds to play. The victory gave the Lions a 23-2 advantage in the series that began in 1918.

The 25 or so people squeezed into a small television studio deep inside the Tredyffrin Township municipal building were told to relax, to accept not being ready for prime time. "The worst problem I have is, people beat themselves up because they're not Steven Spielberg," Gene Donahue, studio manager and a township employee, said to his class of aspiring producers. "Well, guess what? Steven Spielberg wasn't always Steven Spielberg. " Most students don't have experience shooting with a professional camera.

THE MAGNITUDE of the moment cannot be overstated. First, the Eagles faced a bye week six games into the season. They were 4-1, but it was a shaky 4-1. Most recently they nearly blew a 27-point lead at home to the woeful Rams. Second, it was prime time, "Sunday Night Football," ostensibly the best game of the week's docket. Third, it was home, against the hated Giants. For the first time in Chip Kelly's 23-game tenure as an NFL coach, there were certain expectations. A loss to the Giants would place the 5-1 Cowboys atop the NFC East, would put the Giants in second place with the same record as the Eagles.

NEW YORK - Well, if that was the last time we will see Cole Hamels in a Phillies uniform, at least we saw him at his best. The feeling here is that it won't be, for a variety of reasons, most of all the price it would take to persuade Ruben Amaro Jr. and David Montgomery to part with a pitcher like the one who dominated the Mets for eight scoreless innings last night. It would take the perfect deal, and perfect deals do not often materialize in the hectic hours leading up to the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline.

AS THE EAGLES begin Year 2 of the Chip Kelly era, they are scheduled for four prime-time games, three of them at Lincoln Financial Field, with more night work possible, since the league has moved up flex scheduling as early as Week 5. The Eagles play twice on "Monday Night Football. " Kelly's defending NFC East champions open at home, Sept. 7 against Jacksonville, the first time that has happened since 2010, vs. Green Bay.

WELL, IT COULD have been worse. There is no three-game death march this year like there was last season when NFL schedule-maker Howard Katz saw fit to send the Eagles on the road for 3 successive weeks in late September and early October. And they won't have to wait 12 weeks for their bye like they did last year. That will come in Week 7, just as the autumn leaves are at full blush, and just after they've won four of their first six games, according to my imperfect calculations. But then it gets tricky.

AGUY LIKE Kenny Giles can become a folk hero pretty quickly in the right situation. Part of it is his skill set: 100 mph fastball, 5-for-5 in save opportunities, 14 of 21 batters retired via strikeout. But part of it is the tendency for for a fan base to idealize the unseen. Especially in a situation like this. Over the first 2-plus weeks of the season, the Phillies' bullpen has looked entirely capable of obliterating their hopes of returning to the postseason. They already have lost two games in which they had a lead heading into the ninth inning, and another one when they were tied heading into the eighth.
