* 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY. 9 tonight, Fox 29. * BACKPACKERS. 8:30 tonight, CW57. * SEED. 9:30 tonight, CW57. BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Remember the brief excitement last fall over reports that LeBron James was producing a basketball-themed comedy about a player from North Philly? It didn't last long. Next thing we knew, "Survivor's Remorse," the Starz network show that James is co-producing with business partner Maverick Carter, had shifted the main character's hometown to Boston and was filming in Atlanta.

If it looks as if fashion and pop culture have been mooning you as of late, you're right. Beyoncé is sporting a buttock-baring onesie on her "On the Run" tour. Entire bridal parties are flashing their fancy fannies on your Twitter and Facebook feeds. And then there are all the everyday bottoms hightailing it through the city in hot pants just a tad too tiny. Whoa. "We are seeing so many short shorts and shorty shorts and short overalls, too," said Ann Gitter of Knit Wit on Chestnut Street.

Despite all its pomp and circumstance, Baz Luhrmann's 2013 movie The Great Gatsby was hardly the most innovative iteration of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 masterpiece. Unlikely as it seems, that honor may well belong to Power (9 p.m. Saturday on Starz), a contemporary crime drama that counts Curtis Jackson, a.k.a. rapper 50 Cent, as one of its executive producers. Created by Courtney Kemp Agboh, the Emmy-nominated writer/producer of The Good Wife , and fueled by a powerful yet understated performance by Omari Hardwick, the series captures the spirit of Fitzgerald's novel while telling a story that's very much of our time.

* HALT AND CATCH FIRE. 10 p.m. Sunday, AMC. * CROSSBONES. 10 tonight, NBC10.   CAN FANS of "Mad Men," who only a few weeks ago saw a man driven mad by a '60s behemoth of a computer, find happiness in the 1980s with a band of revolutionaries trying to clone the IBM PC? AMC hopes so. The speeding sports car that hits an armadillo in the opening moments of Sunday's premiere suggests that the writers of "Halt and Catch Fire" may also like to signal their intentions metaphorically - at least it's not a big blue armadillo - and Lee Pace, as Joe MacMillan, a former IBM sales exec determined to exploit a weakness in his old company's new weapon, exudes a Don Draper-like confidence that may or may not mask something more disturbing and/or interesting.

Lisa Ring says she doesn't know anything about the gripping story of 76ers guard Eric Snow, who heroically played in the NBA Eastern Conference finals with a broken ankle. But Snow, or any of his fans, would likely be proud of Lisa Ring's resilience. The 16-year-old member of the Spirit Gymnastics Team broke both her ankles during the floor exercise at a practice session in February 2000. That made her gold medal in the floor exercise yesterday in Level 8 even more special as athletes finished the third and final day of the Keystone State Games competition at the Spirit Training Center in Upper Gwynedd Township.

Now that it is the biggest player in the cable industry, Comcast Corp. has more clout than ever to demand better prices for the programming it buys. So, how long before those savings get passed along to customers who have been subjected to annual rate hikes of 5 percent or more? "Everything we are doing is to mitigate the cost side so that we can have more stable pricing for our customers and offer more innovative features," Brian L. Roberts, Comcast's president and chief executive officer, said in an interview.

DR. CONRAD MURRAY , the cardiologist who became Michael Jackson 's personal anesthesiologist and medical yes-man, was convicted yesterday of involuntary manslaughter after less than nine hours of jury deliberation, ending a trial that painted him as a careless caregiver who administered a lethal dose of propofol to the pop star. Members of Michael's family wept quietly after the verdict. Mother Katherine Jackson later told the Associated Press, "I feel better now. " Asked if she was confident in the outcome, she said, "Yes I was. " La Toya Jackson told the AP she was overjoyed.

What a strange time the 1930s must have been. The world was hurtling toward a cataclysm of unimaginable proportions, yet there was a stunning flowering of the arts, of hope and of new ideas in the West as painters and philosophers, poets, and musicians congregated in New York and London, in Paris and Berlin. That's the world so vividly captured by the brilliant British playwright and screenwriter Stephen Poliakoff ( The Lost Prince ) in Dancing on the Edge , a grand ensemble drama with a stunning cast that includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Janet Montgomery, Jacqueline Bisset, Anthony Head, John Goodman, Matthew Goode, and Angel Coulby.
