THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH. 10 p.m. Friday, Starz. WRITING ABOUT television might not have been as interesting back in the days when there were only a handful of channels, but it had to have been simpler. For one thing, if a TV critic praised or panned a program, chances are it was one most readers would actually have the opportunity to see, assuming the rabbit ears worked. Now? We get what we pay for (or can otherwise track down), whether it's a first look at "Friday Night Lights" - whose seasons now run on DirecTV's 101 Network before coming to NBC - or another two years of "Damages," which won't be available to FX fans unless they're signed up for DirecTV and its 101 Network.

The majority of cable systems in the Philadelphia region have been carrying both, said PRISM/SportsChannel spokesman Mike Rosen. What will take their place?
