After viewing TV's version of "Bye Bye Birdie" (Dec. 3), I was totally embarrassed for ABC. In my opinion, the movie version is far superior. Enough said. Paul Dragon, Downey

The Big West's automatic bid to this year's NCAA tournament must be considered up for grabs if only for the fact the favored team has never been to the NCAA tournament. UC Irvine opens tournament play Thursday at Honda Center without a reliable read of the expectations. The Anteaters (22-10, 13-3) won the Big West regular-season title, but the tournament's three-day format somewhat nullifies all that has been achieved. The top Big West teams don't receive byes, they jump straight into single-elimination frays.

This week, Imperial Valley farmers are beginning what should be a nearly normal harvest of their winter vegetable crop. That hardly seems like earth-shaking news--unless you've been following the travails of this hard-tested agricultural community. Located on the Mexican border just 50 miles or so from Arizona, the valley was the first California landing spot of the "Super Bug"--the poinsettia strain of the sweet potato whitefly.

Among the Z Channel programming probably being least mourned in the L.A. cable channel's waning days is the infamous "Night Owl Theater," a slot usually filled by badly dubbed soft-core sex comedies from France, Italy and other countries where the very idea of adultery on the sly provokes anarchic giggling. Were our beloved Z still around a year or two from now, "Bye Bye Baby" (citywide) would surely show up in that slot. About half the actors' lips form around apparently Italian syllables, though English words come out; the plot is nothing more than an endless, deja vu -provoking cycle of cheating lovers; the profane and daringly banal dialogue seems almost wholly improvised, junior Cassavetes-style, by these English-as-a-second-language actors; and it seems designed as a sex comedy, though there's not much sex and even less comedy.

Way to go, L.A. Unified. June is "Gay Rights Month?" Not where my kids go to school. And you are worried about vouchers? You just gave the kiss of death to public education (or manipulation). Bye Bye. MARILYN MAURER, Simi Valley

Bye-bye, Los Angeles . . . it's time for me to pack up and move out. After living here for 43 years, I find that my senses are transmitting "Mayday!" . . . the result of too many guys wearing earrings and too many girls wearing tattoos. MICHAEL LUDMER Encino

Geoff Boucher's "Chill Factor" (Feb. 2) told the cold, hard truth. Radio audiences have grown up and desire artist-driven playlists instead of the overpriced, overplayed and overrated boy bands. Perhaps if these boy bands had more talent than production behind them (as demonstrated during the Super Bowl), they might have ridden the wave a few more years. Like their predecessors New Kids on the Block and the Bay City Rollers, it's time for the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync and O-Town to all sing "bye, bye, bye."

A massive steam locomotive known as Big Boy will roll out of Pomona's Fairplex on Sunday morning on its way to restoration at Union Pacific's rail yard in Cheyenne, Wyo., and its eventual return to rail tracks across America. Union Pacific crews will sever the Metrolink tracks shortly after midnight near the Fairplex Metrolink station and push the 600-ton locomotive on the main line, where it will be towed by modern diesel freight locomotives 56 miles to Colton as it is readied for its trip to Wyoming.

OK, Panthers, once more with feeling. For the second time in three weeks, the Carolina Panthers will face the New Orleans Saints in a high-stakes NFC South showdown that will go a long way toward bringing the playoff picture into focus. Hanging in the balance is sole possession of first place in the division, and a possible first-round bye in the postseason. The Panthers, who have won nine of 10 games, suffered a 31-13 defeat at New Orleans in Week 14 but got new life Sunday when the Saints lost at St. Louis, 27-16.

Minnesota Vikings fans who have been clamoring for the team to bench quarterback Christian Ponder have gotten their wish ... sort of. The team announced Friday that Matt Cassel will start at quarterback for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh in London, although Ponder said the switch was based on his fractured rib -- as opposed to his performance -- and that he will be back as soon as possible. "They just made a decision for what's best for me and my health and this team," Ponder said, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Whew! The "MasterChef" finale came mighty close to including the most reviled competitor in show history. Instead, the final two competitors standing will include the second- most disliked competitor of the season, Natasha Crnjac, a 26-year-old homemaker from San Diego. Now, Natasha will face off with Luca Manfe, a 31-year-old restaurant manager from New York City, he with the charming accent and the never-give-up story line. His first stab at "MasterChef" was a failure, but he came back for more and fought his way into the finale by absorbing every polishing note the judges hand him. But will it be enough to pull past Natasha, whose multicultural background has seemingly given her the dazzling ability to cook across an array of cuisines -- while teetering on stilettos?
